GENESIS G80 SPORT: INITIAL DETAILS

Upmarket Korean car maker Genesis has released pictures of its upcoming Genesis G80 Sport luxury sedan.

The car’s front has a radiator grille in dark glossy chrome, a wing-shaped bumper and there are black bezels around the headlamps. Dark glossy chrome is used on the side mouldings.

The rear features a horizontal line that gives the G80 Sport a spacious look and a different bumper design to the rest of the range. A new diffuser design is used on the rear bumper.

Genesis G80 Sport will have an exclusive new colour tagged as Cavendish Red. The name is inspired by the red cliffs on the north coast of Prince Edward Island in Canada.

G80 Sport models will ride on exclusive 20-inch dark finish alloy wheels that have a G-Matrix pattern. Brake calliper colours are offered in black and red.

Inside, the Genesis G80 Sport has a model-specific three-spoke steering wheel. The dashboard garnish comes in three different designs including Sport-exclusive aluminium and carbon.

A diamond-patterned hybrid weaving pattern will debut in the G80 Sport. Customers will be able to choose seat quilting designs based on their choice of a diamond or V pattern.

Genesis G80 Sport pricing and specification details for the Australian market, will be announced closer to launch. We will publish these when we received them and follow that up with a comprehensive road test.
