Genesis knows that its brand identity isn't at the level of popular competitors from BMW or Mercedes-Benz. Perhaps to compensate for this uncomfortable reality, it has given the G80 rather daring lines. The twin-strip LED headlights and huge Crest grille are hard to miss, although not everyone will love that grille. Still, these elements, together with the curved rear roofline and signature lighting that extends onto the front fenders, add up to a sedan that's perfect for the individualist. The base model comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, power-folding mirrors, Genesis logo puddle lamps, and a hands-free smart trunk lid. Above this, items like a panoramic roof, and power-closing doors are gradually added. The 2.5T Sport Prestige models have uniquely designed bumpers, dark aluminum exterior trim, and 19-inch wheels, while the V6 Sport Prestige gets stylish 20-inch alloys with a textured lattice design on the five spokes.
A fairly large sedan, the Genesis G80 has a length of 196.7 inches, a width of 75.8 inches excluding the mirrors, a height of 57.7 inches, and a wheelbase measuring 118.5 inches. Where curb weight is concerned, the lightest model comes in at 3,957 pounds, and the heaviest is 4,453 lbs.

The 2023 Genesis G80 comes in a choice of nine colors in base trim. Only Alta White doesn't cost extra, while every other shade carries a charge of $575. These are Tasman Blue, Uyuni White, Savile Silver, Makalu Gray, Vik Black, Capri Blue, Hallasan Green, and Valencia Gold. It's a mature, classy color palette that perfectly suits the nature of the G80.
With the larger engine, the color palette expands to include Verbier White and Makalu Gray Matte, both of which cost $1,500. Other additions are Siberian Ice at no cost and Cavendish Red at $575. This trim does, however, miss out on Valencia Gold. Our loan car came in the more-burgundy-than-red Cavendish Red hue which showed off the lines well without being ostentatious.
