  • Excellent handling
  • Five-year warranty

Summary

We're surprised how close to the class-leading BMW 5 Series Genesis has got first time out. The G80 matches its German rival on quality and class, and offers a unique buying and owning experience. Every G80 gets the 14.5-inch widescreen infotainment display, as well as driver-assistance features like adaptive cruise control.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

We're surprised how close to the class-leading BMW 5 Series Genesis has got first time out. The G80 matches its German rival on quality and class, and offers a unique buying and owning experience. We'd like a slightly more forgiving ride and a slightly bigger boot, but the G80 is already the best non-German model in the executive saloon sector.

The G80's base engine is a brand-new, turbocharged, 2.5-liter I4. Look for a version of this engine to make its way into the Hyundai Sonata N-Line, Kia's K5 GT and Stinger. No matter the engine, the G80 looks stunning, with LED lights at all four corners.

Genesis is hell-bent on turning itself into a proper luxury brand, finally able to compete with the German stalwarts. The G80 is one of the first examples of New Genesis, a sedan that's fully capable of going toe to toe with the Teutonics. The infotainment system lives in a 14.5-inch screen that dominates the top half of the dashboard.
