The Genesis company works its cars in full, and cares not only about the conditions of comfort for the driver and passengers, but also about safety. In this regard, the Korean premium car is in no way inferior to competitors. Even in the basic version, the model has numerous airbags and all related equipment. It also provides for the presence of many systems responsible for control over the car and the traffic situation while driving. It is worth noting that as a result of a crash test with the participation of the Genesis G80, it was possible to reveal the remarkable reliability and strength of the body. In the EuroNCAP test, the sedan scored five-star ratings.
Handling and off-road performance
Although the speech in this case concerns a five-seater four-wheel drive car, it cannot be considered as a universal vehicle suitable for all occasions. Designed and prepared exclusively for use on paved public roads. On such highways, the "Korean" feels as comfortable and confident as possible, he can please his owner with good handling, as well as impressive dynamic performance.
It is worth mentioning separately that despite its size and impressive weight, the sedan is maneuverable and attractive in terms of handling. In this aspect, the "Korean" does not leave the lot of many, even more expensive competitors.
Advantages and disadvantages
To understand whether the car deserves attention or it is better to take a closer look at the "classmates" instead of it, you can highlight the main advantages of the model, which include the following:
- reasonable cost and not the most expensive maintenance in terms of costs;
- spectacular appearance and luxurious interior design;
- unique design worked out to the smallest detail;
- excellent handling and dynamic qualities;
- moderate fuel consumption by today's standards.
It is also worth highlighting some of the obvious shortcomings so that this Korean model does not seem like an ideal car in all aspects. The sedan turned out to be overly spectacular, and it will greatly attract attention. The model is not distinguished by the richest technical equipment among the "classmates".
The new "Korean" will certainly appeal to young and energetic motorists. The most advanced developments and the most daring design solutions were used in the design of this model. That is why the sedan turned out to be daring, spectacular and unusually stylish. Of course, there are some nuances from the predecessor here, however, their use was minimized, which made it possible to roll out almost the most attractive luxury car to date.
The salon of the "Korean" is made in the best traditions of luxury cars with a variety of decorative elements, high-quality finishing materials, and the most practical and competent arrangement of key control components.
The luxury "Korean" Genesis G80 was conceived by the manufacturer several years ago, however, the vehicle was fully brought to mind only at the beginning of last year. The premiere for the Russian market took place in March 2020, and after, a few weeks later, free sales of the South Korean sedan in the second generation started.
Among the premium sedans that can compete on equal terms with the Genesis G80 are the following models:
- Volvo S90;
- Mercedes-Benz E-Class;
- Audi A6;
- BMW 5-Series.
