2017 Genesis G80
With every new beginning comes the hope of great developments, but just as nothing good comes from nowhere, something new and original can still draw on the successes of its ancestors. By taking the best parts of the past and reworking them with new improvements, we can create a future that’s more exciting than we ever would have dreamed – and few examples of this kind of forward thinking ring truer than the new Genesis G80 luxury sedan.
Born out of Hyundai’s hugely successful Hyundai Genesis model and proudly heralding the newly-formed Genesis brand, the 2017 Genesis G80 offers an excellent new option for those consumers looking for a quality, sporty, and luxurious vehicle from one of the world’s most popular automakers. Featuring undeniably refined style, serious performance capabilities, and tech that would make even the most sophisticated shopper swoon, the G80 is an excellent evolution of a popular model and provides an impressive signature for the much-anticipated Genesis brand.
Are you as excited as we are about everything the G80 – and Genesis brand – will bring to the table? Here’s a quick look at what shoppers can expect from the Genesis G80, and why this might just be the best time for you to get onboard – right at the start of something great.
Premium Alloy Wheels
Serious, Professional Style
Those looking for a sedan that takes luxury seriously may already know the power, elegance, and respect that the Genesis name brings with it. Just as the word “Genesis” itself comes from the Greek for “beginning,” so too does the nameplate Genesis signal a new chapter in a driver’s personal history – the day he or she realizes they’ve found a truly excellent vehicle with a style that simply can’t be beat. On the G80, these premium design cues are carried even further, revealing an incredibly sleek vehicle built to turn heads today and well into the future.
A Smooth, Elegant Design
Following many of the design cues handed down from the Hyundai Genesis, the G80 is a supremely stylish vehicle without the loudness or transparent flashiness of other luxury models. The G80 features bold lines flowing along a sleek, long, and aerodynamic body that accentuate key elements like the panoramic sunroof and LED lighting. 18-inch premium alloy wheels and heated, folding power exterior mirrors add a distinct touch of class to this enviable model- all of which rest safely under the new winged Genesis logo. And with accents all around, including available headlight washers and side-mirror turn signal indicators, you can be confident knowing you’re turning heads as you cruise down the block.
A Human-Centered Interior
One of the main places where the Genesis G80 notably improves upon the Hyundai Genesis is in the cockpit, which now features greater comfort, thanks to the Genesis’ core value of human-oriented design, making its seats not only supremely comfortable and customizable – with extremely adjustable power front seats and premium leather upholstery front and back – but also more ergonomically designed, meaning less time in discomfort on long road trips and more time enjoying your vehicle’s many impressive features. Plus, with heated front seats and a dual-zone independent climate control, your G80 promises to be reliably comfortable in just about any weather.
Quality Performance Options
When it comes to providing one amazing ride in the body of a luxury sedan, this Genesis is not one to disappoint. Carrying over many of the excellent performance features that made the Hyundai Genesis so enjoyable, the G80 offers subtle improvements on an already impressive system to yield one truly remarkable ride in this enviable luxury model.
Some Powerful Engine Options
If you’re the kind of shopper who values efficiency above all else, then the G80’s standard 311-horsepower 3.8L V6 engine is more than capable of getting you where you need to go without killing the gas tank, especially given its 18 mpg city and 29 mpg highway fuel economy. The G80 inherited this engine directly from the Hyundai Genesis, and if the popularity it received from the Genesis is any indication, then drivers can expect some satisfying rides to come from the G80.
Many in the industry also expect the G80 to offer a turbocharged 3.3L V8 engine as well, which should produce around 480 horsepower and will likely be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This provides all the pickup and power that serious engine-heads will love, while still maintaining a delicate enough balance to prevent it from feeling like too much power under the hood.
Built To Handle Like A Dream
With a distinctive long wheelbase meant to evoke the style of older luxury models paired to a multi-link suspension capable of controlling all those tough roads, the Genesis G80 provides a surprisingly smooth and agile ride no matter which engine option you choose. Available all-wheel drive promises power when you need it most, and an Intelligent Drive system with four driver-selectable settings – Eco, Sport, Snow, and Normal – help give your G80 a firm grip on the road no matter the conditions.
Only The Finest Tech
When the modern driver looks for a vehicle to use on a daily basis, there are a few basic necessities and, increasingly, advanced entertainment, safety, and convenience tech come highly valued. For many, these features are what make a car truly fun to drive, and they allow each of us to stay connected and to not have to walk away from our lives while we’re on the road. For many, these features are crucial – and with the Genesis G80, those needs are more than met by a host of useful and enviable tech accents.
Entertainment and Convenience For All
In the pursuit of building a truly functional modern vehicle, Genesis spared no expense and left no detail unattended. The result is a wide array of helpful convenience tech, like a hands-free rear liftgate with auto open and rain-sensing windshield wipers that automatically activate when they detect rain. Then there’s the G80’s impressive entertainment and navigation system, all activated with the help of an intuitive 9.2-inch touchscreen display. From here, the driver can access everything from streaming audio and SiriusXM radio to Bluetooth and wireless connectivity and navigation services. With all this helpful tech, you can be sure you and your passengers will be plenty entertained no matter where you find yourselves in the G80.
Safety Built Right In
With its wealth of safety technology built standard into the system, the G80 promises some of the most advanced safety precautions available today. With a stated goal of moving toward autonomous vehicles in the near future, Genesis has loaded the G80 with everything from Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist and Rear Cross Trafic Alert to Automatic Emergency Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control. Plus, with an advanced airbag system and high-strength steel chassis, the G80 can withstand whatever accidents it can’t prevent with impeccable security.
