Inside the Cabin of the Genesis G80

We’ll begin our review of the Genesis G80 with a tour of the cabin. This is a midsize luxury sedan, so you can be sure that it’s spacious and full to the brim with comfort features. It has enough seating for five passengers and a total interior volume of 123 cubic feet. This includes the following dimensions and measurements:

  • Passenger volume: 107.7 cubic feet
  • Headroom (front/rear): 41.1/38.2 inches
  • Legroom (front/rear): 45.7/35 inches
  • Trunk volume: 15.3 cubic feet

The cabin also gets first-class treatment with available trims and finishes in Matte Walnut Wood, Matte Black Ash Wood, Matte Sapele Wood, Carbon Fiber, and more. The seats are appointed in leather and come in colors like Beige, Gray, Black, and Ivory.

As the driver, you can also enjoy a standard 12-way power seat with 4-way power lumbar support plus heated seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Under the Hood of the Genesis G80

When you look under the hood of the Genesis G80, you find a powertrain that’s built to move—and move fast. You’ll get your choice of three different engines:

  • 3.8L V6: 311 horsepower, 293 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.3L twin-turbo V6: 365 horsepower, 376 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.0L V8: 420 horsepower, 383 lb-ft of torque

As you can see, all three powertrain options offer plenty of power, and they balance all that oomph with their 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®. The SHIFTRONIC® feature allows you to shift on-command when you want a bit more control over your drive. Or, you can sit back and let the automatic transmission do its thing as it provides precise gear changes.

As a standard, the Genesis G80 comes with rear-wheel drive, which allows for faster acceleration and more adept cornering. However, if you want all-weather, all-season traction control, there’s also an available all-wheel drive package that can take your handling capabilities to the next level.

Keeping it High Tech with the Genesis G80

In addition to impressive performance and a comfortable interior, the Genesis G80 provides high-tech features that can help you stay safe, connected, and confident. This includes the standard 8-inch or available 9.2-inch touchscreen navigation system.

The infotainment system comes with connectivity features like Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth® wireless.

Several smart safety systems come standard as well, like:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • High Beam Assist
  • Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go

It features a Driver Attention Warning system, too. This monitors for behaviors that may indicate drowsy or distracted driving. If detected, it’ll issue a suggestion to take a break from behind the wheel.
