Design Features

You'll be struck first by the car's commanding presence. It's comprised of advanced high-strength steel -- lightweight yet ultra-durable -- with a rigid core structure to deliver the trio of agility, responsiveness, and driving dynamics that are unmistakably Genesis. The G80 is even motion-evocative down to its lines, with a muscular, near-seamless physique culminating in our automaker's iconic hexagonal crest grille -- a look sure to turn heads in greater Charlotte.

What's more, new for 2019, you can even find a 3.8 Sport package available. Its aesthetic enhancements ranging from a crosshatched grille in a dark chrome finish and 19-inch alloy wheels to dual sport-designed front and rear bumpers. That's not to mention striking sport steering wheel, pedals, exterior door handle, side window, and lower door trims.

Power and Performance

Where other new luxury cars merely offer the perception of power, Genesis G80 achieves it. Its range of engine options run from a workhorse 311-horsepower V6 to a high-octane 365-horsepower, 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged engine in models like G80 Sport. There's even a hard-charging 420-horsepower V8 in the G80 Ultimate 5.0 trim.

Pair any with the standard 8-speed automatic SHIFTRONIC® transmission, however, conveniently adapted to ten-and-two shifts via steering-wheel-mounted paddles, and you can also look forward to exceptional fuel economy. By EPA estimates, the car can get up to 18 mpg in a city like Mooresville and 26 mpg down the highway to a locale like Harrisburg, NC. Moreover, the ride is just as tailored as it is capable and efficient, thanks to the availability of a Sport CDC suspension in select trims as well as an Intelligent Drive Mode system.

Safety and Driver-Assist Features

If anything, the 2019 G80 demonstrates the Genesis commitment to your drive-time security. That's due to a vast array of active safety and driver-assistance technologies. For one, an advanced dual-mode AWD system. Secondly, elements from smart cruise control with stop & go, lane keeping assist, and driver attention warning to forward collision-avoidance assist and blind-spot collision warning. There's even a surround view monitor option to ease parking, let alone the redundant protection of a sophisticated airbag network.

The car even receives a rating of five stars overall from the NHTSA for its ability to withstand a crash as well as TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS when equipped with optional LED headlighting and dynamic bending light. The takeaway is clear: ultimate peace of mind on the road, whether over in Cornelius or out in Huntersville.

Interior Features and Technology

Accommodations abound in the latest G80. Under an available panoramic sunroof, standard heated seating invites, available in Nappa leather and optionally cooled and ventilated in select trims. Rear seats are also available heated to recline your passengers in the lap of luxury. Bring a dual-mode ventilation system with a CO2 sensor into the mix, flanked by pleasant matte-finish wood and aluminum accents, and it's easy to get the cabin just the way you like it. There's even a spacious smart trunk for luggage and essentials, accessible hands-free using the auto open feature.

Its cockpit's also a veritable command center. New for 2019, 3.8 models showcase an upgraded 8-inch infotainment touchscreen. It's complete with the smartphone integration capabilities of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and it dovetails with entertainment options like Lexicon premium audio. Plus, with USB connectivity and an available wireless charging pad, you can keep your electronics energized and ready to go. Go, you will, too, thanks to an optional advanced 9.2-inch HD touch-screen navigation system with Destination Search functionality. It offers a split-screen view with which you can review navigational and traffic information at the same time as other audio and visual data. The available heads-up display can even project relevant info onto the windshield, helping you keep your eyes on the road.
