2017 Genesis G80 Review
The Genesis G80 was designed around the idea that innovation should enhance the potential of both your car and you. That’s why Genesis focuses on your complete experience—inside your G80 and out. The result? A more personal more complete definition of luxury. There are two G80 models ready to satisfy your every desire: the 3.8 and the 5.0. Named for the engines under their long sculpted hoods a 311-horsepower 3.8-liter V-6 powers the 3.8 while a 420-horse five-liter V-8 moves the 5.0. 3.8 models can be ordered with the brilliant Genesis HTRAC all-wheel drive an option that also brings a heated steering wheel heated rear seats and headlight washers. Inside the G80 has the most passenger room and overall interior space of any car in its class. More important though is how it makes you feel. Ultra-premium soft-touch leather matte-finish aluminum and real wood-grain veneer grace the surfaces. High-density pads in the seats ensure firm yet comfortable support so long trips in your G80 leave you and your passengers invigorated rather than fatigued. A selection of sophisticated exterior finishes and interior trims are available. The Genesis G80. Luxury redefined.
The G80 has the most passenger room and overall interior space of any car in its class. Settle into the firm yet comfortably padded seats and look around. Ultra-premium soft-touch leather matte-finish aluminum and real wood-grain veneer grace the surfaces. Now look up. The available panoramic sunroof opens new vistas. Take a deep breath. That clean air is from the world’s first dual-mode ventilation control system designed with a CO2 sensor. Want technology? Besides the usual you can control your G80 with your smart watch. The Genesis G80. Luxury reimagined.
The Genesis G80 brings innovations that cover the full spectrum of safety from driver alertness to occupant safety to the safety of vehicles around you. Because safety isn’t just how many airbags your car has or how well its structure protects you in a crash. It’s about using technology to avoid accidents in the first place. That’s why the G80 has a complete set of standard safety features. And a five-star crash rating from the NHTSA. And a Top Safety Pick Plus rating from the IIHS. The Genesis G80. Safety without compromise.
Athletic elegance. That’s the philosophy behind every car Genesis builds. And nowhere is it more evident than when you’re driving a Genesis G80. Genesis engineers used the legendary Nurburgring Nordschleife race track to prepare the G80’s available 420-horse five-liter V-8. Then they went to the Korea International Circuit home of the Korean Formula One race to put the eight-speed SHIFTRONIC transmission through its paces. Meanwhile Lotus Engineering helped tune the G80’s front and rear state-of-the-art five-link suspension. The Genesis G80. Every effort went into making it effortless.
