What We Like

Huge car with a huge features list for a not-so-huge price; a relaxing and quiet interior; superior safety credentials; well-executed technology

What We Don't

Some interior bits aren't as high-class as those of competitors or the Genesis G90; Sport model's brittle ride

What's New in the 2019 Genesis G80?

The Genesis G80 receives a few upgrades for 2019, including a revised infotainment setup and a new Sport package for the 3.8 model.

Which G80 is the Best?

We'd be tempted to just say get the base model and call it a day, as no other luxury sedan comes close to matching its feature content for the price. Yet the 3.8 Ultimate package and its myriad luxurious indulgences only increase the price to about what virtually all of its midsize luxury competitors start at. That seems like the shrewd buy.

Genesis G80 Safety

Is the 2019 Genesis G80 a Safe Car?

The G80 comes standard with stability control, anti-lock brakes, front and rear side airbags, side-curtain airbags and a driver-knee airbag. It also includes a standard forward-collision warning and automatic braking system that can also detect pedestrians, along with lane-keeping assist, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems, a driver-inattention monitor and a 3-year subscription to Genesis Connected Services (which includes automatic crash notification, an emergency-assistance button and stolen-vehicle location, among other services).

The G80's crash ratings are also superior. The government gave it a perfect five stars in every crash category -- a rare feat. The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named it a Top Safety Pick+ for its best-possible performance in all crash tests and for its Superior front-crash prevention system.

2019 Genesis G80 vs the competition

2019 Lincoln Continental -- With a similar emphasis on comfort and power, there are many comparisons to be made to the G80. The Lincoln certainly has the name recognition and perhaps a greater amount of road poise, but we suspect the Genesis is constructed with finer precision.

2019 Lexus GS -- The GS is pricier despite less standard power and far less standard equipment, but there's no denying the engineering sophistication and interior craftsmanship that go into this midsize Lexus sedan.

2019 Volvo S90 -- Again, the S90 costs more than the G80, but Volvo's smart and sophisticated S90 luxury sedan provides style in droves, truly impressive safety credentials and fuel-efficient engines.

Used Audi A6 -- If you're looking for the same type of size and feature content as the G80 from one of the German luxury brands but balk at the as-new price, why not consider a used or certified-pre owned model like an A6?
