The Genesis G80 is a worthy competitor to the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
It's offered with 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 punchy 375-hp, 3.5-liter turbo V6.
A fully electric version is coming soon.
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 overcomplicated, and the unintuitive gear selector is tricky to use.
Standard active safety features include FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, and BSW.
