Marhaba Motoring Reviews the Genesis G80


Super luxury – Now within your reach!

For those seeking value and a change from established luxury brands, the Genesis G80 is a compelling choice. Three engines are offered: a 311-hp 3.8-litre V-6,  and a 420-hp 5.0-litre V-8. Rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission are standard; all-wheel drive is optional. A long list of standard equipment includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, automated emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.

Genesis has the huge resources of the Hyundai Auto Company behind it; that’s the company that by insisting on good design and good quality has climbed up to be the third largest automaker on the planet.  With its relentless march of progress in building not only ever better cars but better-to-drive cars, you can be sure that the G80 will live up to its promise of better luxury, better quality and better performance, especially when considered along with its value proposition.


The G80 is part of a family of luxury cars, together with its sporty sister the G80 Sport and it’s larger, more conservative, brother the G90 sedan.

More models are in the pipeline, making it clear that there is a long-term and expanding commitment to the Genesis brand which represents for Hyundai the peak of motoring perfection.

EXTERIOR The Genesis G80 uncompromising design reflects Genesis brand values and philosophy. Perfect powerful proportions and sense of volume, reinforced by refined, exquisite design details, offer timeless value. The meticulous design is obviously of exceptional quality, while the bold, singular crest grille and the dynamic lateral proportions project athletic elegance and complete Genesis G80’s harmonious design.

INTERIOR Opulent luxury in the high-technology modern world symbolises the Genesis philosophy. Precise craftsmanship and natural materials throughout the interior reject the flashy and frivolous and offer a pure and unique experience that deeply satisfies.

No expense seems to have been spared: the prime Nappa leather seats, the real wood veneer and aluminium finishes, the premium stitching lines visible throughout, combine to heighten the emotional appeal of the interior and increase the bond between driver and vehicle. It seems like everything that you need, or may need, has been provided, including full integration with your smartphone world and which also includes a convenient built-in wireless charging pad at your fingertips, of course.

INTELLIGENT DRIVING It allows the driver to cruise at a set speed, and maintain a constant distance with the vehicle in front. It assists the driver in various ways to stay on track, and even brakes automatically when it senses the risk of a frontal collision. The state-of-the-art driving experience offered by the Genesis G80 takes the driver one step closer to the future of automatic driving.
