What it is: The Genesis G80 is a full-size luxury sedan that comes in three trim levels. The base model comes with a 3.8-liter V-6 engine while a new 3.3T Sport version is powered by a twin-turbo V-6; the range-topping model is the 5.0 Ultimate, which is powered by a 5.0-liter V-8. All three engines are available with rear- or all-wheel drive. Competitors include the Cadillac CTS and Audi A6.
The new 3.3T Sport model is powered by a 365-horsepower, twin-turbo 3.3-liter V-6 engine and features unique exterior and interior styling cues. The front and rear styling of other G80s has been updated, and the cabin gets a new instrument cluster and shift knob. A driver-drowsiness monitor is now standard.
Hyundai's Genesis brand is going sporty with its new G80 Sport, which we saw at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. Watch the video for more.

Best car I have ever owned
I think the Genesis is an excellent car, as I also owned a 2013. I find the new Genesis has smaller front seats, which I find to be a problem, otherwise the Genesis is a great vehicle. Read full review
