Hyundai Genesis which was renamed as the 2017 Genesis G80 has received some major active safety features and performance upgrades.
The newer version of the carwill be powered by a 3.8-liter V6 engine. The powertrain is capable of delivering a total of 311 horsepower coupled with 293 lb feet of torque. For buyers who want that extra oomph factor and would never settle for less, the brand offers a 5.0-liter V8 engine which is capable of rendering 420 horsepower along with 383 lb feet of torque. It is easily the best Genesis G80 that you could get on the road.
Buyers can also choose to upgrade their car to an all-wheel drive. An eight speed automatic transmission is the only gearbox system provided by Genesis. The list of active safety features is what makes the 2017 Genesis G80 stand out from its older models. The new upgrades include lane keep assist, blind spot warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking when the driver fails to respond in time and high beam assist. With such collision avoidance features, the car has already managed to receive the Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS also known as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
For the convenience of entertainment lovers, the 2017 Genesis G80 is integrated withApple Car Play and Android Auto features. The car is equipped with a large 8-inch touchscreen system which can be upgraded to a 9.2-inch screen. The size should be smooth for an in-car infotainment system but it can’t be considered an overkill especially in a time where we enjoy watching movies, music on the go. A navigation system can be used with a smaller 4.3-inch display or a bigger 7-inch display.
The music system is probably one of the best features in the Genesis G80 which includes a 17-speaker setup powered by a Lexicon Discrete Logic 7 Surround system including a heads up display. The Genesis G80 also has a Sport edition available exclusive for the Korean market. The particular model is powered by a 3.3-liter V6 engine which delivers up to 365 horsepower. There is no word on bringing the model to North America but Hyundai might do it if they find enough buyers interested in it.
Meanwhile, you can always opt for the new 2017 Genesis G80 with all these safety features. It makes up for a great family wagon and an ideal choice for those who need the best performance on road.
