About Genesis G80

Once known as the Hyundai Genesis, the 2018 Genesis G80 luxury sedan is now the anchor vehicle for Hyundai’s new luxury division. As a luxury sedan, the G80 checks all the right boxes. The styling is solid, if not a bit Audi-esque, the interior is loaded with features, and the engine choices challenge the best designs from BMW, Audi, Cadillac and Lexus. While the driving characteristics are not yet up to the standards set by these competitors, neither is the price tag. Along with its newly available twin-turbocharged V6 and optional all-wheel drive, the Genesis G80 luxury performance sedan for 2018 offers one of the longest standard warranties of any luxury brand.

"I traded a 2015 Genesis 3.8 for a 2018 Genesis G80 3.3T. The first car was great, I cant recall any warranty issues but this car is amazing. Lots of power and fun to drive with a lot of curb appeal. So many features and great safety reviews at a price that is hard to beat."

"After 13,500 miles in 3 months, its still a heavy car thats perfect for highway cruising and gentle twists and not unlike its competitors from Germany. AWD combined with the flat torque curve of the 3.3L twin turbo V-6 offer an impressive level of performance and economy and Ive become a boost junkie. 0-60 acceleration is impressive - not as silky smooth as the 5.0L but improved fuel economy is a welcome offset. The chassis balances the weight really well and behaves predictably when pushed to the limit. Surprisingly the HTAC AWD system moves the car well in 2-4 snow on stock Contis. Technology and safety features are easy to use and function much better than some US-based manufacturers. Lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control almost create an autonomous vehicle. Interior comfort is top notch and this has quickly become the choice for my family of 5 adults. Best of all - parking garage attendants in Boston think its a Bentley! This is THE car to buy if you want ultimate performance without the high cost of ownership associated with its competition."
