The 2021 Genesis G80 is a luxury sport sedan that rivals BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. Today I'm reviewing the 2021 Genesis G80, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the new Genesis G80. I'm also going to drive the new G80 and show you what the new G80 is like on the road.

  • This is a confusing review. You spoke so highly of this unit like it is almost perfect but yet you graded this unit at 61%. I think you need to take a page out of Steve Hammes note book in regard to prudently grading a vehicle collectively and accurately. Always remember that the listener or the reader is using this information to help make an inform decision in purchasing their next vehicle. The information that you are disseminating has to be clear, precise and informative.

  • When I was very young I was involved in an accident and had to spend several weeks in hospital. The Rockford Files was popular on TV at the time and Dad and I both liked Jim Rockford's 1974 Pontiac Firebird. One day after finishing work, Dad visited me in hospital and brought me a Matchbox diecast model of a Firebird but in a sort of metallic turquoise colour, just the same colour as this car here. It meant the world to me. 👍

  • I guess making a comment that partially alludes to the inability of Americans to drive properly and excoriates them for setting a trend in gas-guzzling, bulky, obnoxiously-inconsiderate vehicles makes you a candidate for deletion on Doug Demero's page. Strange. The comment was relevant to the sentiments made in your video that suggest that investments made in cars are inadvisable and are better suited in SUVs. Again, this is a flawed American phenomenon and way of thinking - aerodynamicism and compactness in sedans embody the future direction of vehicles. Not bulk and senseless obnoxiousness. There's no Formula SUV or SUV and Driver. Cars have, and will always, epitomize true automobile enthusiasm.

  • I'm not sure if they have over invested in sedans, they have 3. BMW and Audi has at least double that, Mercedes has like 8. Then all the variants of each including wagons. It is the market they are going after and people are moving from those brands due to them falling apart if you own them, not lease them. SUV/Crossovers are not that great, they don't drive particularly well. OK, they drive good for what they are or compared to what they were but, there is a always a bit of "its ok" in every SUV/Crossover review. I don't like how they drive or handle and so I always pick a car. If I want to load up more stuff, I bought a truck.

    • @Adil Sagadiyev So 3 Sedans. Sedans are still more abundant in Korea, the SUV thing is getting more popular there of course but, they brought over those Genesis sedans here. So it isn't really an over investment and was probably easier bringing what they already had over here than to design all new for the time. Genesis now has a GV80, soon a GV70, and a sport coupe, and 2 crossovers are planned. For a new small spin off I think they are doing pretty well. Have to make money before you can spend it.

    • @CHUDHUCKER no I mean in total they have 4 models so 75% of their line up is sedan which is much more than any other brand in terms of percentage

  • I am currently driving a 2020 G70 (loaner whilst they work on my Genesis) and frankly don’t like it much. Yes, it is super fast and handles well. But, I much prefer my Genesis sedan (G80). So, if Hyundai decides to drop a car I hope it is the 70. The G70 is smaller and rear seats attest to that? It looks good but not as stately as the G80. It rides ok but not as well as the G80. It sells for less than the G80 but not much less.

  • I drive a 2016 Genesis which I rebadged a G80 - because. Also I drive a 2020 Santa Fe Limited 2.0T. The 2020 had dash lane view cameras and a tweak or two above my Genesis. However my Genesis is a luxury ride in every way. I intend to buy a 2020 G80 Ultimate in 2023 when it is selling at about half price. Living as I do in the very wealthy Palm Beach area I expect any previously owned car to be well cared for and will go for about 20+ K miles on one. My Genesis has 50K miles and remains a flawless vehicle so far.

  • If your kid takes the keys and “holds it” it would start. Once he relies that there are back and forward buttons then, hopefully it has sensors that can stop it from hitting a curb or something. If there was a app makes sense but that is really really dumb for a car maker to make it that easily accessible.

  • My wife drives a 2015 Genesis Htrac that we bought new. It still looks spectacular and has never been in the shop besides scheduled maintainence and 2 windshields due to bad cracks caused by rock chips. It is full of great tech and is very luxurious even after five years. It is not the funnest car to drive but it is very nimble for its massive weight. They don’t have great resale value so it is a car to buy and run into the ground.
