With the Genesis G80 set to enter its third model year on sale since a full redesign, we expect the 2023 G80 to be a carryover model. New for 2023 is the introduction of the all-electric Electrified G80.
As a carryover model, the 2023 Genesis G80 is expected to retain the same exterior design as the current sedan that’s on sale. The current G80 features a regal look with a large shield grille, split headlights, smooth body lines, and a raked rear roofline. At the back, the G80 features large rectangular taillights, dual exhaust outlets, a built-in spoiler, and rounded edges. The 2023 Electrified G80 has a similar design but has a flap for a charging plug at the front, more chrome, and a smooth bumper without any exhaust outlets.
The interior of the current Genesis G80 has an upscale design with plush materials, excellent fit and finish, and stylish trim pieces. The infotainment screen is positioned far back in the dashboard, nearly at the base of the windshield, giving the dash an uncluttered design. The air vent looks like it spans the entire width of the dashboard, while the center console has minimal buttons with two large dials. Instead of a traditional shift knob, the G80 has a rotary dial that’s located just below the circular controller for the infotainment system. The 2023 Genesis G80 will have the same interior design as the current model that’s on sale.
On the tech front, the G80 comes well-equipped from the factory. We expect the 2023 model to have the same tech features as the current model. A 14.5-inch touchscreen, an 8-inch digital instrument cluster, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 12 audio speakers, Bluetooth, four USB ports, an HD Radio, and satellite radio are standard. Available features include a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a wireless charging pad, a 21-speaker Lexicon audio system, and a digital key.
Genesis is expected to offer the 2023 G80 with three different powertrains. A turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 300 horsepower will be standard. A twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 375 hp will be available. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available. The Electrified G80 comes with two electric motors, AWD, and an 87.2-kWh battery pack. Output is rated at 365 hp, while range maxes out at 282 miles.
Every G80 comes with a lengthy list of safety features. Standard features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, a driver attention monitor, automatic high-beam assist, safe exit assist, rain-sensing windshield wipers, parking sensors, and Hyundai’s Highway Driving Assist system. Available features include remote parking assist, a surround-view camera, a blind spot camera, a head-up display, and reverse automatic emergency braking. These safety features should go unchanged for the 2023 model year.
