2023 G80 Key Safety Features

A comprehensive system of ten airbags provides protection for all occupants in the event of an accident. The suite includes front/rear curtain airbags, a driver's knee airbag, and a rare center side airbag between the front occupants to avoid them impacting each other or parts of the cabin in a collision. The usual dynamic stability control system also applies.

Standard driver-assistance features include forward-collision avoidance, lane-keeping assist with road-edge detection, lane-following assist, blind-spot collision avoidance, adaptive cruise control with machine learning, front/rear parking sensors, intelligent speed-limit assist, driver-attention warning, high-beam assist, rear cross-traffic alert, Highway Driving Assist II, safe-exit assist, and a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines. The 2.5T trims' Sport Prestige package gains forward-attention warning and upgraded brakes this year. Upper trims come with a useful surround-view monitor as well as a blind-spot view monitor, remote smart-parking assist, rear occupant alert, and rear parking-collision avoidance. This is a generous list of features to help the driver avoid a collision from ever happening in the first place.

2023 G80 Reliability

A superb quality and reliability rating of 87 out of 100 from JD Power bodes well for long-term G80 ownership, ranking it above its German rivals in this area. For a model that was only introduced for the 2021 model year, it's encouraging that there have been few recalls. Two recalls affected the 2021 model - a possible fuel leak and seatbelt pre-tensioners that may explode - with the pre-tensioner issue carrying over to the 2022 and 2023 model years.

Along with high reliability ratings, the Genesis also comes with better warranty coverage than its German rivals. That includes a five-year/60,000-mile limited warranty, a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, and three years or 36,000 miles of complimentary scheduled maintenance.
