Genesis will offer the G80 in two trim levels with an optional Sport Design package.
The G80 range starts from $68,900 plus on-road costs. Standard equipment on the base model includes a 9.2-inch infotainment system with satellite navigation, a 17-speaker Lexicon by Harman premium audio system, leather trim, wireless smartphone charging, surround view monitor, 12-way powered front seats with driver's memory, a powered steering column, LED headlights and 18-inch alloys.
Moving to the G80 Ultimate ($88,900 plus on-roads) adds Nappa leather trim, heated and ventilated front and outboard rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a panorama glass sunroof, powered soft-close doors, powered tailgate, a head-up display, power rear seats, suede headlining and pillar covers, smart key card (credit card type key), a 7.0-inch colour TFT-LCD instrument cluster display and 19-inch alloy wheels.

Bi-xenon headlights take the place of the LED units on the standard car.
All G80 variants are powered by a naturally-aspirated 3.8-litre V6 engine which develops 232kW at 6000rpm and 397Nm at 5000rpm. Torque is sent to the rear through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Four selectable modes – Normal, Eco, Sport and Snow – are available via an integrated drive mode control system.
The Genesis Adaptive Control Suspension (GACS) with specific Australian tuning is also standard for both grades and includes dynamic stability damping control (DSDC) and electronic control suspension (ECS) which uses continuously variable dampers.
Also standard on both grades is the Genesis Active Safety Control suite which includes autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot collision warning, driver attention warning and automatic high beam.
