2018 G80: Exterior & Interior Features 

When you see the 2018 G80 for the first time, you'll be taken in by its athletic design. The bold hexagonal grille complements a sharp front fascia, complete with powerful LED headlights that last longer (and run more efficiently) than traditional bulbs. Also, the 18-inch wheels really pop, lending some sportiness to this ride.

Inside, the amenities are truly first-class. Wood inlays (and carbon-fiber inlays in the new G80 Sport trim) add a dash of refinement to the cabin. Full-grain leather seats come standard, with three levels of heating and cooling to help you drive or ride in custom comfort. That's practically the definition of luxury!

Technology Features: Modern & Retro 

The Genesis G80 is the perfect blend of cutting-edge technology and timeless appeal. The easy-to-use Genesis infotainment system, complete with a standard 8-inch or available 9.2-inch touchscreen, rests just above a classic (and classy) analog clock. It's a study in contrasts as far as this car is concerned.

The infotainment system puts a range of capabilities right at your fingertips. You can pair up a smartphone with the system via Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ and use your favorite apps from behind the wheel. Just swipe the screen or use voice commands to make calls, send texts, and manage your music library.

Another feature we think you'll like? The available wireless charging pad. No longer cords be cluttering up your car-and more conveniently, you won't have to remember to bring them. Just place your iPhone or Android device on the pad and watch that battery charge.

Luxury Car Performance Specs

Under the hood of the 2018 Genesis G80 is one muscular engine. The brawny 3.8L V6 provides a thrilling 311 horsepower and 293 lb-ft of torque. That'll give you great acceleration in any driving scenario, but if you're really feeling that need for speed, a twin-turbo V6 and a V8 engine are available.

Whichever engine you choose will be paired with an 8-speed SHIFTRONIC® automatic transmission. It can adapt to your driving habits by moving the shift points to optimize power and acceleration. Plus, you can shift into manual mode and upshift or downshift at your leisure.

That'll make for a much sportier ride, and one that gives you more control. The steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters make it easy to shift manually-you won't even need to take your hands off the wheel.
