Performance

The 2021 Genesis G80 is available with two engines: a 2.5-liter turbo-four with 300 hp and 311 lb-ft of torque or a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 375 hp and 391 lb-ft. Both engines are paired exclusively to an eight-speed automatic transmission and are available in RWD or AWD configurations.

Safety

All 2021 Genesis G80 variants get forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, front and rear automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, driver attention alert, lane keeping assist with centering function, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, evasive steering assist, automatic high beams, and highway driving assist (enhances lane keeping assist's centering function when adaptive cruise control is active). Higher trims add an upgraded blind-spot monitoring system that shows what's on your blind spot via the instrument cluster display or digital gauge cluster (when equipped).

Technology

Genesis' latest infotainment system with a 14.5-inch screen is standard along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, an 8.0-inch gauge cluster display, built-in navigation, and a 12-speaker audio system.
