This is the official website page for the Genesis G80.

Road and Track reviewed the G80, covering both the 2.5T and the 3.5TT engines. After heaping praise on the interior and exterior design and usability, they shifted to the drivability. They commented that the car has struck a perfect balance of comfort and driving dynamics, making a special point to say that the car has actual steering feel (which is lacking in most modern sedans). Summing it up, after mentioning BMW, Audi, Mercedes and Lexus among its competition, they say that the G80 is "far and away (the) best car in its class". No qualifier like "for the money" or the like. Just. the. best.

 

And if you want to hear it in podcast form, here AutoWeek interviews a Road and Track journalist about the G80. He states, just like the article, that he would choose the G80 over the competition. The fact that it is also less expensive simply eliminates any reason to consider the competition.

If you like to listen to podcasts, like I do, then check this one out. AutoWeek reviews the G80 concluding that they would rather have this car than the BMW 5-Series. In fact, they agree with Road and Track that it is better than the competition. The fact that it costs less is just the icing on the cake.

Automobile Magazine tends to pay a little more attention to vehicle design, and offers an article in each edition that delves more deeply into a car's exterior design. So when they called the look of the new G80 "absolutely stunning" saying that Genesis is "killing it in terms of design lately", I'll tend to listen to their opinion on design.

Autoguide, on the other hand, pays more attention to the interior design as they are smitten with it. Yes, they mention the car looks great, drives comfortably and quietly, has lots of power delivered by a smooth transmission, and has a great looking infotainment screen that is easy to use, but it spends half the article on the interior. Once you see it, though, you will understand why. Even better, try out the interior from behind the wheel.
