2019 Genesis G80 Technology

No One Says No to Tech

The 2019 Genesis G80 comes with a full slate of impressive tech features. Even among the standard features, you have a 8-inch touch screen, navigation, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth, a USB port, seven speakers, a proximity entry key, push-button start, and dual-zone automatic climate control. There's a whole host of active safety features too numerous to list here. And there are some real gems for a little extra, such as 9.2-inch touch screen, 17-speaker Quantum Logic surround-sound system, wireless charging pad, adaptive LED headlights, parking sensors, surround-view camera, and head-up display. We love the infotainment system for its intuitive interface. All too often, luxury cars make them needlessly complicated. The Genesis system is a breath of fresh air.

Perforated leather seating, top-notch materials, beautiful layout, fit and formed design. The Genesis G80 is masterfully crafted. Wrap yourself in luxury in any one of the G80's five seats. Listen to the soothing sound of silence in this whisper-quiet cabin. It's all leather seating and leather-wrapped steering wheel. Steering wheel and front seat are heated in every G80 trim level.

It Says Vroom in Every Language

The Genesis G80 has three powerful engine options to choose from. The base engine is a 3.8-liter V6 with 311 horsepower and 293 pound-feet of torque. Then there's the Sport-trim exclusive 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that delivers 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. Finally, the cream of the crop is a 5.0-liter V8 serving up 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft. All three engines are refined in how they smoothly shift gears with little noise or vibration. Even so, they accelerate very nicely. The Sport engine, for example, goes zero to 60 in just 4.9 seconds.

Price You Can Live With, Warranty to Match

The 2019 Genesis G80 is a steal, starting at $42,050. That's over $10,000 lower than, say, the BMW 5-series. What's amazing is that Hyundai didn't cut any corners to give us this amazingly low price. There's really great value here.
