Most for the money,

Comes with a slew of features standard. Lane departure notification is a bit too aggressive. I absolutely love the car.


My G80

Very nice ride, a lottsa bang for the buck. Great ride, top notch features, easy to use the features and would recommend to anyone.


What a Great car - the other Luxury Brands better

This was an excellent upgrade from an already very good Hyundai Genesis 2012. This is a bigger, more luxurious and better made car. I looked at the Tessa,Jag and Lexus and this is no doubt the best (not just for the money). If you like the "Name Cache", then this is not for you - but if you are smart and value your money and want a great car - this is it. Bought the 2017 G80 with the Premium package and it is perfect. The safety features and the Tech set up is perfect. Only thing Genesis needs are dealerships which should happen in 2-3 years, until then the 3 year free maintenance and Service Valet (they come to your house or work to exchange your vehicle for a loaner) will do fine. You will be surprised on how great this car is - take it for a spin!


Switch and you will not be disappointed

Moved from an SUV (MDX) and wanted a bigger car so was debating between a 5 series and A6. Not sure how I ran into G80 but after the first test drive I knew we will come back to it. What made me buy? Awesome crash ratings and small overlap tests (the current 5 series is pretty bad and that was the only reason I did not get the 5 series) and plenty of safety features for the money. Blind spot, emergency braking, adaptive cruise control. lane keep, rear camera, automatic high beams, key less entry, smart trunk opening etc. all come standard. And of course the G80 looks good and will hold its ground with any other car in its category. I owned Acuras and BMWs earlier and currently other car in the family is a BMW 328 GT. I like the G80 better than anything else I owned before. Its super quiet with a sporty ride and you always have the power. The steering feel is good and the handling is tight. It seems to absorb the road imperfections without being cushy. All interior materials are what you would expect in a luxury brand. I am 6'2" and the seats are comfortable, and I can seat in the rear seat comfortably even with my driving position. Have around 1k mixed miles so far and its equal fun on the highway and city roads. It might not be as agile as a 5 series or A6 but both those cars are smaller than the G80. Had to reduce a star for interior as there are minor things like the lack of bottle holder space in the doors or a charger/power outlet for rear passengers. The software that runs the navigation and touch screen could be faster...it lags and maybe I need to download an update, like sometimes the rear camera might not come on with the guide lines if you switch into reverse as soon as you start or the temperature might not display on screen immediately when you turn the knob. Never had such problems in the BWM. Only the ultimate trim has the rotary knob for operating the navigation and media and the other trims just have the touch screen. The base model sound system is decent but could be better, I found good clarity on the lexicon in premium trim but was not awesome. The gas mileage could be better but its a big and heavy car. The good part is it runs on regular gas and does not need premium. If you are not worried about the brand and love rear wheel drive platforms you should test drive the G80. I am not saying its better than 5 or E or A6 quattro but its close to them and the G80 will make you feel much better for the features and performance you get for the money. I drive the G80 more than the BMW. Go test drive and you will not be disappointed.
