That represents an increase of $2,650 over the starting price of the 2016 Hyundai Genesis that the new model replaces as Hyundai rebrands its luxury models under the Genesis nameplate.
The base 2017 Genesis G80 is powered by a standard 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 311 horsepower and 293 pound-feet of torque. The optional 5.0-liter V8 puts out 420 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.
Both engines come mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and feature selectable modes that include Eco, Normal, Sport and Snow in both standard rear-wheel-drive and optional all-wheel-drive configurations.
The new G80 comes standard with a host of advanced safety features, including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot detection, lane keeping assist, high-beam assist and a rearview camera.
The appropriately upscale interior, with available premium materials such as genuine aluminum and matte wood finishes, boasts standard 12-way power front seats with heat and available ventilation, as well as available heated rear seats.
Standard infotainment features include a high-end audio system, a 9.2-inch high-definition display, 64-gigabyte solid-state drive, and smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. Options include a head-up display and a 14-speaker Lexicon audio system.
And, as previously reported by Edmunds, all Genesis buyers will be treated to the Genesis Experience, a suite of services that include complimentary maintenance, free valet service for maintenance appointments and a complimentary loaner car for the first three years or 36,000 miles.
Edmunds says: Consumers in the market for a luxury sedan might want to get in touch with a Hyundai Genesis dealer and add the 2017 G80 to their shopping lists.
