Perhaps, one of the main traits that set a car brand as a luxury brand more than materials, performance, ride comfort and quality is the heritage. This is one area where the Genesis brand is starting fresh as the brand is relatively new to the luxury car market and it is ambitiously positioning it into this market against some popular and desired brands from different countries. The Genesis G80 which was initially the Hyundai Genesis was a luxury brand within the Hyundai umbrella and has now come into its own as the Genesis brand. The car looks stunning and hopes to offer luxury and poise through this car.
The Genesis G80 gets a significant update from its previous model and there is a lot of wood treatment inside the dashboard with leather and aluminum accents filling the cabin for an expensive look. The top model comes with not only leather seats but are heated, cooled and electronically adjustable. It comes with excellent infotainment with smart phone integration and upgraded sound system with many speakers. It has a 3.8L V6 engine that puts 311hp and 397Nm of torque with a heads up display that looks slick.
The 8-speed transmission is smooth and seamless with most Genesis cars coming with rear wheel drive with all wheel drive as an option for all-weather drivability. This engine gets to 100kmph in under 7 seconds and for those seeking power, there is a V8 on offer with 420hp. The Genesis G80 has comfort in mind with a comfortable and plush ride and a 2018 model will be on the market offering a sporty version of it. With decently laid interiors, comfortable drive and well put exterior design, the Genesis G80 is value for money in the luxury market.
