Genesis G80 Performance and Design

The thrill of driving comes to life inside the 2018 G80, with a standard 311-horsepower 3.8L V6 engine mated to a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. The 2018 edition of the G80 also comes with a new choice: the twin-turbocharged 3.3L V6 engine. This engine produces 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque, making every trip more exciting.

From the outside, this car is a joy to look at due to its re-designed front fascia with a hexagonal grille and LED headlights. The sleek rear bumper is smooth-looking, too. With the new 2018 Sport trim, you'll have 19-inch wheels and dark chrome- and copper-colored accents.

A Luxurious Interior

The G80 seats are covered in a specially developed premium leather, with three levels of heating and cooling to keep you comfortable on every trip. The redesigned gauge cluster and new analog clock, along with the quiet cabin, add to the luxury feel. The standard Integrated Memory System ensures your vehicle is always ready when you step inside. The driver's seat, exterior mirrors, and steering wheel will be automatically adjusted to your preferences.

There are many items inside the cabin that can make your drive more convenient. Standard Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ are part of the conversation. Access your text messages, make phone calls, and listen to music from your smartphone on the massive 8-inch touchscreen. The G80 Ultimate and Sport models come with a 17-speaker sound system, so whether you're listening to music or your favorite podcast, you'll hear it with stunning clarity.

Forward-Thinking Safety Features

Genesis cares about your safety when you're behind the wheel and cares about your passengers, too. The suite of safety features includes the 9-airbag system, featuring advanced dual front airbags, front and rear side airbags, and side-curtain airbags, offering protection from every angle.

Automatic Emergency Braking detects vehicles that may be slowing ahead, along with any pedestrians, engaging automatic brakes when applicable. Meanwhile, Lane Departure Warning, which uses a camera mounted on the front, reads the lines on the road and issues an alert if the G80 is sensed to be drifting from its lane. Driver Attention Alert analyzes the way the car is driving and can detect driver fatigue or distraction, issuing an alert when necessary. Put it all together, and you're protected inside the Genesis G80.
