2019 G80: Style & Design

The 2019 G80 truly stands out when it comes to design. The first quality to catch your eye will be the bold hexagonal crest grille, a feature that announces your arrival in style. If you're looking for a more premium experience, add the available moonroof and enhance that spacious feel.

Inside, available Nappa leather seats in your choice of Beige, Gray, or Black offer supple support and are soft to the touch. Heating and cooling functions sweeten the deal even further, helping you find comfort in any weather.

Plus, the rear seats are designed with 35 inches of legroom, so adults will have plenty of room to stretch their legs wherever they sit!

Sedan Performance Specs

Powering the Genesis G80 forward is one of three possible powertrains. The base engine, a 3.8L V6, has 311 horsepower on tap for a potent and powerful drive. At the top of the lineup, a 5.0L V8 cranks out 420 horsepower and delivers the thrills.

A smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission comes standard with every engine, as does your very own set of paddle shifters for a sportier experience. Rear-wheel drive (RWD) is also standard, but if you're looking for a little extra traction, all-wheel drive (AWD) is available.

When it comes to handling, the G80 aptly takes the middle ground between the other two Genesis sedans. Nimble like its smaller compatriot and silky like the larger one, the G80 stands out in all sorts of ways!

Safety Behind the Wheel

The 2019 G80 offers a full slate of safety features to keep you secure behind the wheel. With front and rear side airbags, dual front airbags, a driver's knee airbag, and side-curtain airbags, you'll have a total of nine airbags offering protection from every angle.

Plus, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist can detect and warn you of slower-moving vehicles ahead. It can even apply the brakes to help avoid or mitigate an accident. Meanwhile, Smart Cruise Control adjusts your speed to keep you at a safe and consistent distance from cars ahead on the roads of Hardeeville, Bluffton, and Hilton Head Island.
