The Genesis G80 is one of my favorite cars. Obviously, I’m not a “car expert,” but I do love cars and this has been one of my favorites to test drive!
Parting ways with the Genesis G80 was such sweet sorrow! The G80 fits me to a “tee,” and I adore this car. I’ve test-driven quite a few cars, The G80 is definitely on the top of my list. The Genesis G80 is Hyundai’s standalone luxury line which was introduced in 2015. The mid-sized luxury four-door sedan seats 5 and has plenty of features and accessories that will give you a peaceful drive topped with a beautiful sleek look.
The price point is lower than other comparable luxury brands. The car’s exterior alone will convince passersby that you are driving a pricier vehicle. I admit it, I got a few looks while driving in it. I’m sure it’s just the car.
Key features that truly made an impression upon me.
– The wipers turn on when the car’s sensors detect rain.
– Heating and cooling options for the front seats, with the option to add the feature for the rear seats. Now, all your passengers can be treated like royalty!
– Push button for ignition start.
– Smart trunk feature
– This car hugged the streets of Los Angeles, while it kept out the noises of the urban jungle
– When I accelerated on the highway, it was quiet with no vibrations (I don’t like loud and shaky cars.)
– The interior is roomy. It was an awesome driver’s experience, as well as a luxurious ride for my family. I felt like I was putting very little effort into driving the car.
Looks are all good, but what’s really important are the safety features which include emergency braking; lane keep assist; blind spot detection; and rear cross traffic alert. I checked out safety ratings, and this car scores high marks. The numerous airbag features are impressive, including a knee airbag for the driver, and side airbags for the passengers. The more protection the better in the case of an accident. Nine airbags made me feel more secure.
Other cool features are the Lexicon stereo surround system, the ultra comfortable shaped seats, the high quality interior, the sporty steering wheel grips, leather upholstery, panoramic sunroof, and large infotainment system with Apple car play and Bluetooth capabilities.
The only down side to my review is the less than stellar fuel economy at 15-19 city miles, and the trunk space could’ve been a little bigger.
For my family, this luxury sedan fit us well with tons of interior space, and ultimate comfort. Again, I’m not a car expert, but I know what qualities my family value in a car. This car is a joy to drive – fun and stress-free. I’m thankful that luxury doesn’t mean breaking the bank. I’d really love to drive the G90 which from I’ve read has an even more spacious interior.
