Genesis G80 3.8 2019 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
7.6
The 3.8 is the cheapest way into the Genesis G80 range, and will set you back $68,900.

The 3.8 is the cheapest way into the Genesis G80 range, and will set you back $68,900. 

It does arrive well equipped for that money. You get 18-inch alloys, LED headlights and DRLs (Bi-Xenon on the Sport Design), a 9.2-inch multimedia screen with nav and which pairs with a 17-speaker stereo, wireless charging, leather seats that are heated in the front and dual-zone climate control. Shock of shocks, though, there's no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto on offer here - a dead give-away of the G80's age, and a very noticeable absentee for those used to using Google Maps as a navigation tool.

The G80 is powered by a 3.8-litre V6 good for 232kW and 397Nm. It pairs with an eight-speed automatic that shuffles power to the rear wheels. Genesis says its large sedan will clip 100km/h in 6.5 seconds, and will push on to a top speed of 240km/h.

G80 arrives with a long list of standard safety kit, including nine airbags, as well as blind spot warning, forward collision warning with AEB that detects pedestrians, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert and active cruise control

All of which was enough to earn the G80 a full five stars from ANCAP when tested in 2017.
