2020 Genesis G80 compared to the 2019 Genesis G80

2020 Genesis G80 vs 2019 Genesis G80: What's New?

At Genesis of Colorado Springs, we are preparing for the arrival of the 2020 Genesis G80. In anticipation, it makes sense to make a full comparison between the 2019 vs. 2020 Genesis G80. The 2019 Genesis G80 is available now, but the 2020 Genesis G80 is due later in the 2019 calendar year. When it comes to these luxury Genesis cars, we want to look at how each model performs, how much they cost, and what engines they come with. We will also evaluate the fuel economy, whether there will be a new Genesis G80 Sport and the various features between the two model years. To start things off, we will see a slight price increase for the new 2020 G80. The 2019 G80 started at $42,050 MSRP while the newer 2020 G80 will have a starting price tag of $42,550 MSRP.

2020 Genesis G80 Exterior

We will have some new styling changes with the 2020 Genesis G80 exterior. So far we know it will have a similar hexagonal-shaped grille plus dual-bar headlights. The side mirrors are moved from the A-pillars to the doors instead. The trunk lid also comes with a flat light design.

2020 Genesis G80 Performance

It’s expected that the 2020 Genesis G80 will still feature the 3.8-liter and 3.3-liter turbocharged engine options. The only addition that might occur is a new plug-in hybrid setup in place of the V8 engine. It’s not confirmed yet if Genesis plans to electrify this model or the Genesis G70 in Colorado Springs.

We don’t expect any configuration changes with the 2020 Genesis G80. It should still hold five people comfortably and have the same amount of trunk space. We do expect a new digital instrument cluster plus a larger infotainment screen. There might even be some additional driver aids included as standard equipment.

2020 Genesis G80 Sport

The 2020 Genesis G80 Sport is what everyone wants to know more about. At this time, we expect the model to be included in the new lineup but aren’t sure what changes will occur. Unless there are major changes in performance, the 2020 G80 Sport will come equipped with the same 3.3L engine and other interior amenities. We will have to wait until all of the new Genesis G80 cars arrive in Colorado Springs to be sure.

2020 Genesis G80 Safety Features

Since the 2019 model excelled in safety ratings, we expect a similar safety suite with the 2020 Genesis G80. Standard safety equipment such as forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, lane keep assist, a driver attention monitor, high-beam assist, lane departure warning, a rearview camera, and rear cross-traffic alert will carryover. Both the 2019 Genesis G70 and Genesis G90 were listed at Top Safety Pick+ models, so we know Genesis makes safe vehicles.
