Standard 2.5T model includes a turbocharged 300-horsepower 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine and is RWD.
The G80 is an Audi A6 priced like a BMW 3 Series.
The cars arrive this summer.
In short, the 2021 Genesis G80 is priced like a 2020 BMW 330i xDrive with a few options. Between you and we, it’s lots more car in every way than the BMW. Or, the put it succinctly, it crushes the average midsize luxury car, such as the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, with styling and technology at a price that will make you ask yourself why you should pay more. The base 2.5T RWD Standard trim starts out at $47,700 and a very well equipped AWD 2.5T Prestige is only $59,150.
Once more, Genesis, Hyundai‘s luxury brand, wants to prove that high-end customers need not spend huge sums of money to get all the latest gadgets and features. What’s more, they don’t even have to compromise on design and performance. At $47,700, owners will be privy to 12-way power front leatherette-covered heated seats, power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, a 14.5-inch screen with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, over-the-air updates and loads more.
Access to the 375-horsepower 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 starts at $59,150. The top-trim G80 3.5T AWD Prestige, which retails for $67,650, includes Nappa leather, remote smart-parking assist, a 12.3-inch 3D digital instrument cluster as well as head’s up display, and includes cooled front seats, wireless phone charger and so on.
Canadian pricing is not yet available but we know the trim structure will vary slightly. Specifically, as with the 2020 Genesis G80 sedan, AWD will be standard as well as a few other features. In the US, the 2020 G80 started at $42,550 while in Canada, the base G80 sports a $58,150 starting price. The 2021 G80 2.5T AWD Standard retails for $50,850 which leads us to believe the equivalent car in Canada may be priced for more or less the same amount as in 2020. We’ll have to wait and see.
