The Genesis G80 is a traditional four-door sedan powered by either a 311-horsepower V6 or a 420-horsepower V8 coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive is optional on V6 G80s, while the V8 is rear-drive only. A 365-hp, twin-turbocharged G80 Sport model will hit dealers for 2018.
The pricing and option structure is straightforward: A standard G80 with the V6 and rear-wheel-dive starts at $42,350 (including a $950 destination charge) and includes:
- A full suite of safety features, including a lane departure warning system, automatic emergency braking, and nine airbags.
- A touchscreen-controlled infotainment system, including navigation and a rearview camera.
- Heated 12-way power front seats.
- Dual-zone climate control.
- A hands-free trunk opener.
Options are limited to the all-wheel-drive system and two packages. Choosing all-wheel-drive adds $2,500 to the MSRP and also adds a heating function in the rear seats and steering wheel. The Premium Package includes a panoramic sunroof, 14-speaker Lexicon sound system, ventilated front seats, and a few convenience items for an extra $4,750. The Ultimate Package adds to the Premium Package and fits upgraded interior trim alongside LED headlights, a head-up display system, a fantastic 17-speaker Lexicon stereo, and a larger 9.2-inch infotainment system for an additional $4,200. The V8 incorporates all Ultimate features as standard at an asking price of $55,500.
Genesis Concierge is the brand's overarching package of driver convenience services. The flagship fis its valet service program – when service is due, a valet will deliver a loaner vehicle, take your G80 to the service facility, and then return it when it's done. According to Genesis, owners never need to set foot in a service garage. The valet service, scheduled maintenance, and roadside assistance are standard for three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.
