2021 Genesis G80 Release Date

The 2021 G80 sedan is expected to arrive in Summer 2020, but it might release closer to Fall 2020. Some production delays due to COVID-19 have slowed down the release of new cars, but we have no reason to believe that the G80 will be pushed off any further.

2021 Genesis G80 Price

The MSRP of the new 2021 Genesis G80 starts at just $47,700 ($48,725 with destination charges).

The most expensive 2021 G80 Sedan is the 3.5T V6 AWD Prestige with a starting price tag of $67,650 ($68,675 with destination charges).

2021 Genesis G80: Is There a Sport Trim?

In previous models, there was a Genesis G80 Sport to choose from. While the "Sport" name doesn't seem to move forward in the new generation, the popular Sport model will live on with closely related 3.5T trim levels. The 3.5T option provides more power and premium features than other options. In 2020, the G80 Sport added additional "sporty" interior/exterior styling packages and a more robust engine. If the Sport name lives on in the 2021 G80, it will be shown with the 3.5T engine performance and a possible appearance package upgrade.

2021 Genesis G80 Performance & Powertrain

With the Genesis G80 redesign, you will find two engine options instead of three. The standard model features a 300-horsepower 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder, while the higher-powered option has a 375-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine instead. Both of these come with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and your choice of rear- or all-wheel-drive.

2021 Genesis G80 MPG Ratings

There are no EPA estimates yet on the fuel economy for the 2021 G80, and the engines are updated, so we can't go off of last year's numbers. The standard engine for the 2020 G80 was a 3.8L V6 achieving an mpg rating of 18 city/26 hwy. The 2021 G80 has a 2.5L i-4 engine that should produce better fuel economy numbers. 4-cylinder engines usually have better mpg ratings than V6 engines.

2021 vs. 2020 Genesis G80: Redesign & Changes

Exterior comparison of the all-new 2021 Genesis G80 sedan compared to the previous 2020 Genesis G80 model

The 2021 Genesis G80 starts a new generation, bringing with it many changes. Not only have the engines been updated, but there are many styling differences from the previous year. As the G80 enters the third-generation, this Genesis sedan shares the powertrains and platform of the new GV80 SUV. The 2021 G80 features a massive grille and unique exterior lighting.

2021 Genesis G80 Exterior Dimensions & Design

The updated G80 rides on the same 118.5-inch wheelbase as the previous model, but this version is slightly wider and sits lower than the 2020 G80. These updates to 2021 Genesis G80 also offer a more significant presence than the previous model year. Additionally, there is a twin-bar light theme that carries from the fender vents to the front wheels and around the rear LED taillights. Initial reports suggest that the new Genesis should come with your choice of ten exterior color options. We also expect it to be available with your selection of either 18- or 19-inch tires.

2021 Genesis G80 Safety, Reviews, & Ratings

The 2021 Genesis G80 comes with a long list of driver-assist technology. Some of these include automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring. Additionally, it will offer Smart Park, which also comes with some Hyundai models. This unique system allows drivers to maneuver the vehicle into tight parking spots without being behind the wheel. There are no safety ratings on the new Genesis sedan yet, but we expect it to fare well.

As far as automotive enthusiasts are concerned, the Genesis G80 reviews couldn't be any better. Car and Driver calls it a "rolling beauty." When KBB asked if the Genesis G80 is a good luxury car, the response was, "the G80 offers technology and comfort on par with its rivals at a low cost." It seems that this luxury sedan couldn't impress judges any more than it already has.
