Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Genesis G80

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor - November 7, 2020
  • 2020 Genesis G80s available; 2021s expected soon
  • Cash: $1,000 holiday bonus on 2020s
  • Finance: From 0.0% APR on 2020s
  • Lease: From $485 for 36 months

An all-new 2021 G80 sedan:

The Genesis G80 is one of three sedans offered by Hyundai’s luxury marque. The 2020 G80 is a carryover model; we're expecting an all-new version for 2021 to arrive later this fall. We believe the new design will parallel the G90's appearance.

When shopping the Genesis G80, you might compare this midsize luxury sedan with offers for the BMW 5 Series, Cadillac CTS, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Lexus GS, Audi A6, and similar sedans. One advantage Genesis has is that it provides three years of free maintenance.

The current offers are set to expire on November 30, 2020. We may see an update before then to coincide with Thanksgiving and Black Friday.

Holiday cash and other deals:

In September, Genesis canceled its loyalty/conquest cash bonus on the 2020 G80s. This month, the automaker rolls out a $1,000 holiday cash bonus on 2020 stock. You can claim these funds even if you qualify for the promotional financing deal.

Once again this month, Genesis offers a $1,000 military bonus for active duty, reservist, National Guard, veteran and retired U.S. military personnel. Further, if you are a recent college graduate or plan to graduate within the next six months, there is a $400 bonus for you. Check with your dealer about eligibility. If eligible, you will apply these funds to your down payment.

Strong financing and holiday bonus cash:

Promotional financing deals are available as usual this month. Finance your 2020 G80 through Genesis Finance and pay 0.0-percent APR for 60 months. Choose a 72-month loan and the rate is 1.9 percent. Claim the $1,000 holiday cash bonus and your deal is that much better!

The first financing offers on the 2021 are in place. Here, you'll find 1.9-percent APR financing for 60 months and 2.5-percent APR for 72 months. However, the holiday cash bonus isn't available on the 2021s.

No money down leasing:

Lease a 2020 G80 3.8L V6 RWD and pay $485 per month for 36 months with $0 due at signing. Your effective monthly cost is $485. No cash down makes for a spectacular offer!

If you prefer a 2021 G80 2.5T RWD, you'll pay $539 per month for 36 months with $5,499 due at signing. Your effective monthly cost of ownership is $692 and that's high. But that's not unusual for an all-new model.

Genesis provides an allowance of 10,000 miles per year on all G80 leases. At lease end, you’ll pay a $400 disposition fee.

2020 Genesis G80 Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2020 Genesis G80 receives an upgraded blind-spot monitoring system with automatic emergency steering. The optional infotainment system now has a customizable home screen. The mid-size luxury sedan debuted in 2017 and will likely get a redesign next year.

Choosing Your Genesis G80

The Genesis G80's three trim levels correspond to engine size: 3.8, 3.3T Sport, and 5.0. Pricing starts at $43,545 including destination for the base 3.8 and goes to $58,495 for the 5.0.

Engine Choices

The G80 is available with a normally aspirated V6 (3.8 trim), a turbocharged V6 (3.3T Sport), and a V8 engine (5.0).

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
3.8L V6311 hp293 lb-ft21 mpg
3.3L Turbo V6365 hp376 lb-ft20 mpg
5.0L V8420 hp383 lb-ft19 mpg

All-wheel drive is available with any engine for $2,500 in place of the standard rear-wheel-drive setup. All models use an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The G80 offers the interior space of a family sedan, meaning five can fit with minimal fuss. Trunk space is typical for this class at 15.3 cubic feet.

Safety Features

Every G80 comes with a full complement of driver assistance features, including lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, and blind-spot monitoring with automatic emergency steering. The latter is designed to prevent collisions during lane changes.

The 3.3T Sport and 5.0 come standard with a surround-view camera and a head-up display. These features are available on the 3.8 as part of option packages.

The G80 carries a five-star overall safety rating from NHTSA.


The standard infotainment system includes an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, satellite radio, seven speakers, two USB ports, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The 3.3T Sport and 5.0 get a 9.2-inch touchscreen, wireless device charging, and a 17-speaker Lexicon sound system – all which are optional on the 3.8.

3.8 - From $43,545

The 3.8 comes luxuriously equipped with leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power-adjustable steering wheel, driver memory settings, automatic wipers, and auto-dimming side mirrors. The 3.8 rolls on 18-inch alloy wheels.

The $5,700 Sport Package adds a panoramic sunroof, wireless device charging, heated rear seats (standard with AWD), a 14-speaker Lexicon sound system, 19-inch wheels, and sportier trim throughout.

For buyers who want all that and more, there's the $9,950 Ultimate Package, which also furnishes Nappa leather seats, a 17-speaker Lexicon system, a hands-free power trunk lid, a heated steering wheel (standard with AWD), a head-up display, a 9.2-inch touchscreen, LED fog lights, and special matte-finish wood and aluminum interior trim.

3.3T Sport - From $56,745

The 3.3T Sport gets the turbocharged V6 engine, plus an adaptive sport-tuned suspension and standard 19-inch wheels. The interior carries front sport seats, carbon fiber trim, and a black microfiber suede headliner.

Everything in the Ultimate Package comes standard, so there are no factory options.

5.0 - From $58,495

The 5.0 trim packs the V8 engine and a few special touches like illuminated door sill plates, a microfiber suede headliner, and quad exhaust outlets.

CarsDirect Tip

Although the 5.0 is the quickest of the three 2020 Genesis G80 models, the 3.3T Sport is the choice for overall performance due to its athletic suspension.
