Current Model
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.

2017 Redesign Year
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.
