The G80’s front grille is also updated to Genesis’ new crest design, mirroring the shape of the brand’s badge, while the “wings” of the crest are formed by the headlights.
The front fender lighting elements and wraparound tail-lights also carry over from the GV80, which Genesis says will be their brand’s “signature design element” going forward.
Though Genesis is yet to detail engine offerings, with the G80 and GV80 sharing the same platform, the sedan could be available with three powertrain choices – a 2.5-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder, a 3.5-litre twin-turbo-petrol V6 or a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel inline six.
Inside, the new Genesis G80 sports a 14.5-inch widescreen multimedia system, slim air vents, and leather and wood detailing.
Pricing, as well as full local specifications, are expected to be revealed closer to the G80’s launch, but for reference, the current version kicks off at $68,900 before on-road costs.
