Genesis G80 Overview
The Genesis G80 is a luxury midsize sedan produced by Genesis, the luxury vehicle division of Hyundai Motor Group. Initially launched as the second-generation Hyundai Genesis (before the brand separation), the G80 has since become a core model in Genesis’s lineup, exemplifying the brand’s commitment to luxury, innovation, and design. Before the creation of the standalone Genesis brand, the first-generation of this vehicle was sold as the Hyundai Genesis. In 2015, when Hyundai decided to spin off Genesis as a separate luxury brand, the Hyundai Genesis was renamed the Genesis G80 starting from its second generation. The G80 sits in the middle of the Genesis sedan lineup, between the smaller G70 and the larger, more opulent G90.
The G80 is available with two engine options: a 3.8L V6 engine that produces 311 horsepower and 293 lb-ft of torque, and a 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 375 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The G80 is available in rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configurations. It has a spacious and comfortable interior with high-quality materials. It comes standard with a long list of features, including a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 14.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 12-speaker Lexicon sound system, and a panoramic sunroof. The G80 has been praised for its luxurious interior, comfortable ride, and long list of standard features. It has also been awarded several awards, including the 2022 MotorTrend Car of the Year.
