The Genesis G80 is a mid-size luxury sedan and it’s all-new for 2021. The brand staked its stylistic claim with the 2020 G90 and the G80 builds on that. There’s your big diamond-pattern grille. Genesis’s twin light bar motif is present and striking. The nose is long and the deck lid short. The shape merges muscularity and architecture. Tension with power. Distill all its visual elements into a single word… and you’ve got presence. Micah Muzio has more in the video below.
The base price on the 2021 Genesis G80 starts at $48,700, including destination charges. That’s at least $6,000 cheaper than the BMW 5 Series, Audi A6, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. If you want a V6 in your G80 expect to pay around $60-grand. Keep things “cheap” and the G80 still includes keyless access, 12-way heated front seats, adaptive cruise control, a leatherette interior, and blind-spot monitoring. If you want to go fancy you can add options like a Nappa leather interior, active front-seat bolsters, a panoramic roof, a 360-degree camera system, and power-closing doors.
From the Genesis Media Center: Genesis Motor America will have two very important product launches in 2020; its first-ever luxury flagship SUV – the 2021 Genesis GV80 and the all-new 2021 Genesis G80 mid-size luxury sedan. The announcements of these two new vehicles have been well received by potential customers evidenced by the combined total of more than 14,500 reservations received.
Earlier this year, we announced that sales for both vehicles would commence in the US Market in the summer of 2020.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 related delays in the U.S, we need to adjust our communication of the timing for their highly-anticipated arrival in the US Market to the fall of 2020.
The all-new G80 and GV80 have received tremendous media accolades and an overall exceptional reception thus far. Recently, both vehicles were named contenders for the North American Car & Utility of the Year awards respectively.
