    2021 Genesis G80 Starts At $47,700, Undercuts European Rivals

    he 2021 Genesis G80 will start at $47,700 (which does not include the mandatory $1,025 destination fee). Sales will start in the second half of the year.

    The base engine will be a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 300 horsepower (223 kilowatts) and 311 pound-feet (421 Newton-meters) of torque. The least expensive model with the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 will be $59,100. The powerplant produces 375 hp (279 kW) and 391 lb-ft (530 Nm). Regardless of the engine choice, the sedan comes standard with rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive is an option.


    The four-cylinder G80 comes full of standard features like LED headlights, power-folding mirrors, and high beam assist. There are 12-way, heated front seats and dual-zone climate control. The safety technology suite includes features like forward collision assist, smart cruise control with machine learning, lane keep assist, and blind-spot monitoring. The cabin has a 14.5-inch infotainment screen with a 12-speaker stereo.
    The V6-powered G80 comes standard with many of the amenities from the four-cylinder variant's Advanced trim level. It also has an electronically controlled suspension with road preview and monobloc front brake calipers. The range-topping Prestige grade of the six-cylinder model gets amenities like Nappa leather upholstery and a suede headliner.
    The table above shows the price of some of the G80's major competitors. The Genesis' starting cost undercuts them all. In fact, you can get the mid-range Advanced trim of the four-cylinder model for around the same amount of money as most of them.
    Competitive Model Price

    Audi A6 45 TFSI $54,900

    BMW 530i $53,900

    Jaguar XF P250 $51,100

    Mercedes-Benz E350 $54,050

    It's not just the engine though. It comes standard with a lot of amenities that are optional on the four cylinder.

    It turns out that Genesis isnt a joke and should be taken seriously...it appears right now that they've got the stomach for the fight. G70/80/90 (minus that ridiculous grille) are serious luxury entries and the GX80 appears to be the real deal offering all the tech and theoretical performance of the Germans at a 10-15% discount

    The G80 Ultimate started at $57K, with a V8 engine that I'd much rather have than a TTV6.
    I test drove a K900 with that engine and it was nice... very smooth and quiet.

    Yikes that thing is ugly! They undercut too far, cheap luxury is always seen as a knockoff. You may have to earn the price you charge for cars, but not by that much... a few thousand less is where they should be.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - the G80 isn't as unattractive than other cars in its segment - the ones not sold in Europe, thankfully.

    I have respect for Genesis but this is ugly as hell.

    Don’t know what’s worse, that grille or Lexus.

    They both look extra terrible in the states that require a front license plate.

    Genesis is not a joke but it will never have the European prestige. Discount is not worth it for most people who buy these.

    Let's face it, many non-luxury vehicles are almost as nice as luxury vehicles. A big reason people buy is the name on the trunk.

    Have to agree with that. I'd just go ahead and buy the Merc or Bimmah or Audi and put KIA tags on it. I too am quite status-conscious, I want all drivers to think I'm cool.

    They may not be there yet, but they're seriously working towards that status...remember 30 years ago when "Lexus" first showed up? Genesis is trying to capture that same magic by putting out well thought out and developed products.

    Nah, you'll be better off sticking with the genuine article - Elwood and his Kia brothers and sisters. Not only are Kia products cool, but they are also more trouble-free than Merc or Bimmah according to J.D. Power's 2019 IQS:

    Curses! Foiled again!

    Maybe they should re-spell the Genesis brand. To Geniuses.

    I think that would boost sales. In a yoojely fashion. Every underachiever with fitty grand in his pocket would LUV to be driving a Geniuses. Yes we can!
