Model Preview

A redesigned Genesis G80 appeared in 2021. Its look parallels the GV80 SUV, itself a new model for 2021.

The Genesis G80 is a medium-sized luxury sedan with room for five. Its new styling reflects the brand’s current direction featuring an oversized crest-shaped grille, distinctive exterior lighting, and a fastback layout. Five sit comfortably, but a 13.1 cubic-foot trunk is surprisingly small for the segment.

The cabin matches the sophistication of the exterior with a dashboard that sits lower than before. Coupled with the now thinner roof pillars, the interior seems more capacious than ever. Genesis paid close attention to the details, with a thickly padded steering wheel, chrome bezels, real wood, and quilted Nappa leather combining to impart elegance and sophistication.

On the tech front, the G80 excels. All trims get a 14.5-inch touchscreen display and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Other features include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone compatibility, four USB ports, Bluetooth, and a 12-speaker audio system. Among the upgrades are a wireless device charger and a 21-speaker Lexicon audio system.

Genesis G80

The Genesis G80 comes with two engine choices. The standard offering is a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 300 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. Also available is a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine with 375 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque. Power travels to the rear or to all four wheels utilizing a slick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission.

The G80 comes chockfull of driver-assist safety features. All trims feature automatic high-beam LED headlights, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, active lane control, and blind-spot monitoring. Options include rear automatic emergency braking, a head-up display, and a surround-view camera system. The sedan also includes an automatic parking system that can be operated inside the car or remotely with a key fob.

Pricing & Release Date

Genesis hasn’t set a release date yet, but we should see the 2022 G80 late this fall.

The 2022 G80’s pricing should hold close to what the current model costs. That pricing runs from $48,725 to $63,275 MSRP, including the destination charge.

Among the Genesis’ top competitors are the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A7, Volvo S90, and the BMW 5-Series.
