The redesigned Genesis G80 joins the big leagues and competes well with the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
It's offered as either rear- or all-wheel drive.
The standard engine is a responsive turbocharged 300-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder.
Combined with a slick-shifting eight-speed automatic, this duo returned just a so-so 24 mpg overall in our tests.
There's also a 375-hp, 3.5-liter turbo V6 that provides effortless power.
The ride is plush, handling is sharp, and braking is top notch.
Fit and finish is impressive yet understated.
The cabin is roomy, and the seats are comfortable front and rear.
However, the infotainment system is overly complicated, and the unintuitive gear selector is very tricky to use.
Standard active safety features include FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, and BSW.
