Part of the launch of Hyundai's upscale brand is the renaming of existing models.
Previously known as the Hyundai Genesis, it is now called the G80.
For about $10,000 less than competing midsized luxury sedans, the G80 delivers just about every feature and luxury attribute a buyer could imagine.
Offered with a smooth and refined V6 or a potent V8, the G80 has responsive handling and a comfortable ride, though it can't quite match its German competitors.
Our tested AWD V6 returned a competitive 20 mpg overall.
Controls are refreshingly straightforward for a luxury car.
Rear-seat passengers are pampered with amenities, including seat heaters, and space is plentiful.
Most versions come with automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring.
