The new G80 Sport trim has a unique design that is highlighted from shiney black radiator grill, bumper accents, and bezels around its headlights. Our test car's paint is labeled Cavendis Red paying homage to the red cliffs along the shoreline of Prince Edward Island in Canada. No matter what color it is, this new G80 Sport is an A-Lister in both looks and performance.
The 20-inch alloy wheels with their unique cross hatched pattern drew praiseworthy comments from bystanders and hinted at the stylish details that would be found within.
The three-spoke steering wheel, and the lengthy infotainment screen bespeak refinement and elegance.
The circular climate controls are mirrored in the large center console controls for the screen and automatic transmission.
The exquisitely ribbed and sculpted 8-way powered front seats not only look great but feel buttery smooth and lumbar support adjustments are there for both seats. Is there plenty of room?
Front Head Room - 39.4 in.
Front Leg Room - 42.5 in.
Front Shoulder Room - 58.3 in.
The individually heatable rear seats are equally spendid with their own climate controls and spacious roominess.
Rear Head Room - 37.6 in.
Rear Leg Room - 38.7 in.
Rear Shoulder Room - 57.1 in.
The large windows include a sun/moonroof for sunsets and moonbeams.
13.1 cubic feet of cargo space is there with all seats upright.
Beneath the hood lurks a powerful 3.5L liter twin turbocharged 375 horsepower engine supplying plenty of torque for acceleration whenever needed. The G80 has four wheel independent suspension as well as front and rear stabilizer bars to keep floating and comfy.
If it seems like I have nothing but praise, it's just and only that Genesis took an already took a great car and advanced it another level.
