Though luxury sedans are mostly known for their luxury appointments, Genesis has shown its own way of defining the realms of a luxury sedan. The automaker took the performance aspect as seriously as it has taken other things to turn every ride in the 2020 Genesis G80 to be infinitely luxurious. Through the 2020 lineup of G80 models Genesis proved the fact, that it is also the choice of a smooth power under the hood, that finally completes the notion of in-car luxury, proudly shared a famous Genesis dealer at Santa Rosa.

In every 2020 G80 models Genesis plants a bit of everything in their best forms.

Looking at the 2020Genesis G80 will make you experience the richness of smart styling. On the road, it shows its performance gimmicks while securing you within the strong layers of safety touches.

Dynamic Trim Arrangement
The 2020 year lines up the Genesis G80 models in a dynamic row of trim levels. At the lowest level, you get the base 3.8 models, up the next comes the 3.3T Sport, reaching the top, there await the 5.0 models. The 3.8 models again bifurcate in Standard, Sport, and Ultimate trims, while the 3.3T models can be ordered only in the Sport mode. The range topper 5.0 model too limits itself only with the setup of Ultimate trim effects.
Hierarchy of Power
The hierarchy of power in the 2020 edition of Genesis G80 starts at the bottom level with the base 3.8 model that carries under its hood a 3.8-liter V-6 engine to gain 311 horsepower, which is more than enough for most sedan buyers.
One step up, the 3.3T Sport model accommodates twin-turbocharged V-6 engine under the hood that stops its spin at 365 hp and handing out 376 pound-feet of torque. These models are fun to drive as Genesis has equipped them with solid adaptive dampers, and it also wears a sportier look justifying its trim name.
The 3.3T models powered by V-8 engine has enough power to spare after its twin turbo engine replies back with 420 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. The driving dynamics in them are trained to behave more politely on the roads, ignoring the savage road conditions under its strong suspensions.
All the engines however get the same smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission, that transfers the power mostly to the rear wheels and occasionally to the all four wheels if you configure your G80 with that setup.
At showrooms like that of the Genesis dealership, you can book a test drive to experience the way Genesis prepares the 2020 G80 sedans as ideal luxury sedans.
