Details of the all-new Genesis G80 sedan have been revealed ahead of a planned Australian arrival in the second half of 2020.
Following the G80’s reveal earlier this month, Genesis has now revealed powertrain details and equipment highlights.
Depending on the market, the G80 will be offered with a choice of three engines starting with a 154kW/441Nm 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel unit. There’s also a 223kW/421Nm 2.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol and a range-topping 3.5-litre turbocharged V6 producing 279kW and 530Nm.
Again, depending on the local market, buyers will get the option of rear or all-wheel drive configurations.
Dimensionally, the G80 is now 4995mm long, 1925mm wide and 1465mm high. Genesis claims the car is up to 125kg lighter than the outgoing model.
To deliver a refined drive, acoustic glass is utilised for the windshield and windows, door sealing has been improved, the engine compartment gets new sound insulation and there are resonant sound-reducing wheels.
In addition, the Electronically Controlled Suspension with Road Preview, enhances ride quality by reducing road impacts using information supplied through the front camera.
The G80 will get an extensive safety suite that’s lifted from the recently revealed GV80 SUV including Highway Driving Assist II, Smart Cruise Control with Machine Learning, Pre-active Safety Seat, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance and 10 airbags.
Further highlights include Remote Smart Parking Assistant (RSPA) which can be used outside of the car via the key fob, a 12.3-inch 3D instrument cluster, and a 14.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The G80 will also be equipped to receive over-the-air software updates to the navigation system.
Design-wise, the new G80 borrows heavily from the new GV80 with the crest grille, and the two lines of the Quadlamps circumventing all sides of the vehicle.
The company points out the styling allows variations in design interpretations by enabling a carefully-considered balance between the two opposing characteristics, Athleticism and Elegance.
There’s also a coupe-like roofline, a long sweeping Parabolic Line from front to rear, power lines of the front and rear fenders, and 20-inch alloy wheels.
Genesis Australia has confirmed the new G80 is expected to launch in the second half of 2020. Local specifications and pricing will be announced closer to the launch date.
