2022 Genesis G80 pricing and specs: 2.5T Sport Line and 3.5T Sport variants join the range
The 2022 Genesis G80 line-up is growing with the addition of the new Sport variants the brand expects will be popular Down Under, with an electric model also due in Q2.
Genesis is set to expand its G80 flagship sedan range for 2022 with the addition of new performance-flavoured variants, along with an electric model due within the coming months.
Headlining the updated range for now is the new 2.5T Sport Line and 3.5T Sport variants, both of which add a host of mechanical upgrades over the standard models they're based on for a $6,000 premium, with Genesis expecting a 40% take-up rate for the new variants.
Prices are up for the regular G80 2.5T and 3.5T models, with rises of $1,100 and $2,100 respectively, which sees the range now open at $86,000.
The new 2.5T Sport Line receives the most upgrades, with road preview electronic control suspension, 4-piston monobloc front brakes with larger 360mm discs, 20-inch Sport alloy wheels shod in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S rubber, unique Sport bumpers and dark chrome exterior trim.
Inside, it also features Real Carbon trim, quilted leather seats, a 3-spoke steering wheel and alloy pedals to round out the Sport-specific upgrades.
In addition to this, the G80 3.5T Sport boasts a few additional features, including a rear-wheel steering system, active road noise control, a Sport+ driving mode and launch control.
The regular G80 2.5T doesn't go unchanged, now featuring a new 5-spoke diamond-cut 19-inch alloy wheel design, along with adding intelligent speed limit assist and 2 extra rear USB charging ports. The regular 3.5T model remains unchanged.
Additionally, the optional Luxury Package that can be added to both models for a whopping $13,000 has also been upgraded with Ergo Motion front seats and a wireless phone charger for rear passengers.
It still includes features such as a 12.3-inch 3D instrument cluster, dual 9.2-inch rear entertainment screens, upgraded seating, quilted Nappa leather upholstery and additional active safety tech.
Matte paint is also still available for an additional $2,000 on all variants.
Genesis' impressive ownership proposition for a luxury vehicle remains unchanged as well, with a 5-year unlimited kilometre warranty and 5 years/50,000km of complimentary servicing still included. The company will also still collect your vehicle to be serviced for you, along with leaving a loan vehicle for you to use as well.
The 2022 Genesis G80 2.5T models are available now, with the 3.5T Sport due to arrive from March. The electric G80 is also expected to arrive in Q2 this year, with local pricing and specifications for it to be confirmed closer to launch.
