2024 Genesis G80: A Trim & Package Comparison
For 2024, the Genesis offers newly redesigned and refined engines, new features and an impressive new interior. Luxury drivers can get all in a fairly decent price range. It’s perfect for families and for commuting to the office.
Breaking Down the G80 Trims
Let’s break everything down for the solidly performing 2024 Genesis G80 mid-size luxury sedan. We’ve split things up by engine size, and detail the available choices applicable to each one.
When contemplating your perfect vehicle, Genesis does things a little differently. They start with what they call “trim models.” In actuality, these are engine and powertrain configurations. Then, the buyer adds “Packages” to give their Genesis a distinct “flavor.” These packages function similarly to trim levels as they are found on most other manufacturers.
Genesis G80 2.5T
The base engine for the 2024 Genesis G80 is a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. It’s capable of 300-hp and 311 lb-ft of torque. This model comes only with all-wheel drive and starts at $54,150. The 2.5T models come in an array of different exterior colors. Most are an array of whites, grays, and blacks, though there is a deep blue color.
Standard features with the 2.5T are plentiful. Drivers will get a massive 14.5-inch display for their infotainment system with navigation, Bluetooth, smartphone integration features, and three USB ports. Listen to satellite radio or HD radio on a 12-speaker audio system. You’ll also get dual-zone climate control, synthetic leather upholstery, heated front seats and a hands-free power lift trunk. Other features include heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel.
Safety features are plentiful. You’ll get all the essentials, including forward automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, driver drowsiness monitoring, adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams. Front and rear parking sensors and a rearview camera are also included, as well as blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, and automated highway driving.
The Genesis 2.5T offers two different packages to add on. The $4,700 Advanced package adds tri-zone climate control, ventilated seats, a panoramic sunroof, a 21-speaker audio system, and rear sunshades. Aesthetically, it adds wood trim and a panoramic sunroof.
The Sport Prestige package for $9,550 provides luxury features like genuine leather upholstery, wireless device charging, a surround-view parking camera system, a blind spot camera, remote control automated parking, a heated steering wheel, wireless charging and power soft-closing doors, among other things. This is in addition to everything in the Advanced Package.
Genesis G80 3.5T
The 2024 Genesis G80 3.5T Sport starts at $64,000. The main draw of this model is the performance-focused engine. It’s a 3.5L GDI twin-turbo V6 with 375 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque. It lowers the fuel economy by just a single MPG rating from the base option (22 city/32 highway, compared to 16/25).
The G80 3,5T trim boasts performance enhancements such as 19-inch wheels, an electronic adaptive suspension, and upgraded front brakes. However, it also improves the interior thanks to genuine leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, a 16-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a sports steering wheel. Meanwhile, the panoramic sunroof provides the cabin with some healthy natural light.
The 3.5T offers the Sport Advance package with a surround-view camera system, blind spot camera and rear seat alert. Additionally, it gives you a convenient digital key, tri-zone automatic climate control, power rear sunshades, and wireless device charging. Best of all, there’s a 21-speaker Lexicon premium audio system for music lovers. It starts at $2,950.
The Sport Prestige package, which starts at $8,850, gives you everything in the previously mentioned package plus a whole lot more. For instance, you’ll get Nappa leather seats, a suede headliner, a heads-up display and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. For improved performance, there’s rear-wheel steering and a sports-tuned suspension. A carbon-fiber interior trim and 20-inch wheels are added as well. Reverse automatic emergency braking is added for safety.
Starting at $75,570, you can get the Electrified G80. This model comes with an 87.2 kWh 523 V lithium polymer battery that can deliver a range of up to 282 miles. Its two electric motors deliver 365 horsepower. It can go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds, which is even faster than the 3.5T.
As for features, the Advanced trim gives you a whole lot of bang for your buck. Nevertheless, if you want features like the Nappa leather, a surround-view camera, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and tri-zone climate control system, you’ll want to upgrade to the fully-loaded Prestige trim for around $80K.
If you are concerned about the longevity of your ride, worry not because Genesis has you covered. There’s a 60,000-mile limited warranty, a 100,000-mile warranty on the powertrain, and 36,000-mile complimentary maintenance.
When it comes down to features, you can fully equip your vehicle no matter which model you choose. It really comes down to your engine options. If you want a more powerful ride, you’ll want to select a 3.5T model, but if you are more interested in the features, you can save more money by sticking with the 2.5T. However, if you are looking to save on gas and you can shell out a little more dough, you certainly can’t go wrong with the Electrified G80.
