Genesis G80 Performance
Genesis G80 Engines
The Genesis G80 comes with a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. The uprated engine is an available 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that produces 375 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque. These engines pair to an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drive, though all-wheel drive is available.
The base engine is reliable and capable for around-town driving and reaching highway speeds. If you want more power, the V6 is a punchier option with smooth power delivery. The transmission accesses both engines’ power well and shifts smoothly.
Genesis G80 Performance and Handling
The Genesis G80 is an athletic vehicle that has a smooth ride quality. It zips around city streets and tackles turns and curves with poise. Passengers will stay comfortable with the absorbent suspension that glides over bumps and dips in the pavement.
The steering is sharp and provides good feedback for driver confidence, allowing you to push the Genesis G80 as much as you want. The power and performance are backed by strong, reliable brakes with plenty of stopping power. The vehicle is sure-footed in most driving situations, though drivers in areas prone to snow and ice will like the additional peace of mind of all-wheel drive.
