The 2018 Genesis G80 Sport offers aggressive styling, with twin turbo performance and pure Genesis refinement in newest mid sized luxury sedan.

 

A smooth, responsive, 3.3-liter, 365-horsepower twin turbo rewards you when you put your foot down. The CDC sport suspension gives you the stability to handle whatever the road lays in front of you. High-performance sport brakes provide you the stopping power to rein it all in.

During normal driving, the Continuous Damping Control system automatically adjusts damping force ensuring you superior ride comfort. Damping force is increased during aggressive driving for enhanced precision, stability and control.
