2021 Genesis G80 Review

This is the art of disruption. Dynamic design; dynamic performance; the Genesis G80 offers a new way to define the luxury-performance car: Athletic Elegance. Choose from three G80 Packages: Standard Advanced and Prestige. Four powertrains are available with turbocharged or twin-turbocharged engines and rear- or all-wheel drive. Add an eight-speed transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and you’ve reached a new level of luxury performance. Inside the cabin ergonomically designed controls glitter like jewels on the center console. Leather seats and matte wood trim combine to create a rush-hour sanctuary letting the available Panoramic Sunroof send your stress to the sky. Your G80 goes far beyond Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. How about a 3-D instrument cluster? Smart Cruise Control with Machine Learning? A 360-degree shield of protective driver-assistance technologies? Or standing on the sidewalk while you watch your G80 park itself? Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a G80 that’s all yours. The Genesis G80. Luxury redefined.
Every luxury car is loaded with technology. So the question becomes: How easy is it to use? In the case of the Genesis G80 the answer is: Very. Steering-wheel controls touchscreen or your voice—you choose the way you want to operate audio navigation climate-control and phone functions. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is standard and Wireless Charging for smartphones is available. A 21-Speaker Lexicon Premium Audio System is available with QuantumLogic Surround Technology giving you an audio experience that’s every bit as exciting as the GV80’s driving experience. The Genesis G80. Luxuriously connected.
The Genesis G80 is engineered with a new fusion of sensor technologies bringing together 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 every G80 comes with a complete set of standard driver-assist and safety features. So you can drive with complete confidence. The Genesis G80. Safety without compromise.
Athletic elegance. That’s the philosophy behind the Genesis G80. Power comes from your choice of engines: A turbocharged inline-four or a twin-turbo V-6. The eight-speed automatic transmission delivers great performance—and surprising fuel economy for a full-size luxury SUV. Steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters make shifting fun again. Intelligent Drive Mode lets you adjust transmission mapping throttle response suspension settings and more. Available All-Wheel Drive expands your boundaries; the available Electronic Limited-Slip Rear Differential adds even more capability. The Genesis G80. Every effort went into making it effortless.
