Overview

       

State-of-the-art technology, useful driver aids, and premium comfort and convenience are just a few of the attributes one expects to see in a midsized luxury car. Delivering in each of these crucial departments is the dapper 2020 Genesis G80. Since its introduction in 2017, the G80 - and the Genesis brand as a whole - has been consistently lauded for its quality, reasonable pricing, and exceptional standard equipment. This car goes toe to toe with its German rivals in every way. It's nothing short of an expertly crafted upper-class vessel that will always be ready to take you to your destination with heaps of style and grace.

Trims and Powertrains

   

The '20 G80 offers three trim levels: 3.8L, 3.3T Sport, and 5.0L Ultimate. The name of each trim reflects its respective engine configuration. The 3.8L gets its kick from a 3.8-liter V8 delivering 311 horsepower and 293 pounds-feet of torque. The 3.3T Sport has a turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 under the hood producing 365 hp and 376 lb.-ft. of torque, while the 5.0L Ultimate is propelled by a 5.0-liter V8 making 420 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. Each of these is matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission with standard rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available.

       
   

   

Comfort and Convenience

   

The base 3.8L has a nice list of standard features, with heated auto-dimming side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, keyless entry and ignition, and hands-free trunk release. On the inside, you'll be spoiled with heated power-adjustable front seats, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power steering wheel, driver's seat memory functions, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The optional features for this trim include a panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a power trunk lid, improved leather upholstery and driver-seat adjustability, and a heated steering wheel. The 3.3T Sport adds a few sportier touches like an adaptive suspension, sport front seats, a simulated-suede headliner, and carbon-fiber interior trim. The 5.0L Ultimate is equipped like the 3.3T Sport but with the more powerful V8 engine.

   
   

Safety and Active Driver Assistance

   

The 2020 G80 earned a five-star crash-test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and last year the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the G80 its highest designation, Top Safety Pick+. Genesis has been generous with active safety features, equipping all trims with standard blind-spot collision avoidance assist with rear-cross traffic alert, forward collision avoidance assist with automated emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, a driver attention warning system, and adaptive cruise control.

   
   

Technology

   

Each trim receives an infotainment system with integrated navigation and a standard 8-inch touchscreen (there's an upgrade available for a 9.2-inch screen), plus both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, and satellite radio. A premium Lexicon audio system, wireless phone charger, and head-up display are also available for a truly loaded G80.
