The 2021 Genesis G80 is a midsize luxury sedan that excites buyers at dealers like the Yorba Linda Genesis dealership, thanks to its agile handling, refined ride, and long list of standard features. Genesis redesigns the G80 for 2021, with striking exterior styling that borrows design cues from the automaker’s GV80 SUV. In addition, the Genesis G80 now rides on the same platform as its GV80 stablemate.
The Genesis G80’s new platform is longer, wider and lower than the outgoing model. The wheelbase continues unchanged. Buyers at the Genesis dealership near Yorba Linda report they like the G80’s new, more prominent front grille and unique exterior lighting. Genesis reduced the G80’s weight by 243 pounds by using more aluminum in the G80’s body. Buyers also get more standard driver-assist and luxury amenities.
The Genesis G80 gets accolades from the automotive media. Autoweek writes:
“[I]t holds up a beautiful car. Among its contemporaries at least, the large crest grille and narrow quad headlamps fall on the tasteful and elegant side of the ostentatiousness spectrum. ... The 2021 G80 is a great car and shows how Genesis continues to improve in luxury while stiff offering great value.”
The 2021 Genesis G80 comes in two trim levels: 2.5T and 3.5T. The numbers in the names of the trims refer to the size of the engines. The G80 2.5T trim is powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder powerplant that generates 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. The 3.5T is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 that puts out 375 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Both trims get optional all-wheel drive.
Step inside the 2021 G80, and you’ll be awed by its luxurious interior, constructed with high-quality materials such as genuine leather, open-pore wood and metal trim. The dash features a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a 14.5-inch touchscreen. Logically placed buttons and knobs make the dual-zone climate control system, the radio, and the navigation system easy to use.
The base Genesis G80 2.5T trim comes with 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, heated and power-adjustable front seats, push-button start, keyless entry, synthetic leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a hands-free power trunk lid. Standard infotainment features include a 14.5-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, an audio system with 12 speakers, HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth and three USB ports.

The G80 2.5T also comes with front and rear parking sensors, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, and a rearview camera.
