The redesigned Genesis G80 is based on a new rear-drive platform, with the latest infotainment features and innovative active safety features.
It competes with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series.
Beneath the sleek shape is an all-new structure shared with the GV80 SUV.
The standard engine is a turbocharged 300-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and the uplevel engine is a 375-hp, 3.5-liter V6 turbo that provides effortless acceleration.
All-wheel drive is optional.
Ride comfort is impressive, and handling is responsive.
Fit and finish is top-notch.
However, the infotainment system is very tricky to use.
Standard active safety features include FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, and BSW.
