Genesis G80

2018
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The Genesis G80, previously known as the Hyundai Genesis, delivers just about every feature and luxury attribute a buyer could imagine for about $10,000 less than its competitors. Offered with a smooth and refined V6 or a potent V8, the G80 also has responsive handling and a comfortable ride, though its agility can't quite match its German rivals. 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. Standard advanced safety features include forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and blind-spot warning. A Sport version with a turbocharged, 3.3-liter V6 is new for 2018.
