The 2021 Genesis G80 Model Introduction

The GENESIS G80 is the brand’s all-new large sedan. Combining distinctive and progressive design with luxury-focused technology, the all-new G80 offers an instantly recognisable Genesis identity.

The all-new G80 sedan’s exterior embodies the Genesis design philosophy of ‘Athletic Elegance’.

It incorporates breathtaking proportions to accentuate the vehicle’s dynamic, rear wheel drive architecture created by the long dash to front axle ratio and short overhangs. The signature Crest grille with G-Matrix pattern and the two-stripe Quad Lamp headlights are born out of the Genesis emblem crest and wings, showcasing Genesis’ new Design Identity.

G80’s interior is based on the concept of the ‘Beauty of White Space’. The concept is inspired by Korean architecture and carefully balances function and tranquillity. The function presents itself in the right moment, at the right place, utilising a minimalistic yet intuitive and ergonomic driver-optimised design.


The all-new G80 will be offered with a choice of two all-new engines, a refined in-house developed 8 speed automatic transmission as standard and either 2WD (Rear Wheel Drive) or AWD (All Wheel Drive) configuration.

2.5T – G80’s standard powertrain is an all-new powerful and efficient 2.5 litre turbocharged inline
4 cylinder petrol engine. This engine provides a high output of 224kW of power and 422Nm of torque. The 2.5T engine is available with 2WD – driving the rear wheels.

3.5T – For impressive performance, our flagship all-new 3.5 litre, 279kW / 530Nm twin-turbocharged petrol V6 is available, exclusively paired with an electronically controlled Genesis AWD system for superior roadholding performance.

Options – For the connoisseur who wants it all, the G80 will be available with an optional Luxury Package, to further enhance G80’s already impressive standard equipment list across both its variants.

Colours – G80 will offer a wide range of choice with eleven exterior colours, five different interior colours and two different open pore real wood trims, allowing each customer to personalise their own G80, suiting their individual preferences.
