This sedan also offers 15.3 cubic feet of storage space.

There is much to consider when examining the G80’s interior. As before, a large swathe of genuine wood trim covers the lower dashboard from the center stack to the rear door. The seats are covered in available full-grain leather with twin stitching. Metal grain or aluminum accents and high-end soft touch materials only enhance the look.

The 5.0 edition has the most standard features; package upgrades on 3.8 trims may match most of what the top-trim G80 has to offer. Standard equipment includes a power driver’s seat with an extension, a power tilt and telescopic steering column, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, and power accessories.

Available features include a panoramic tilt-and-slide sunroof, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel. All Genesis models are covered by a five-year, 60,000-mile new vehicle warranty; a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty; and a seven-year, unlimited mile anti-perforation warranty.
