New Genesis G80 will receive a “charged” version of Sport

The model will receive a 420-horsepower performance, equipped with a gasoline 3.3-liter V6.

Recall that just a week ago, the premium Korean brand introduced the new generation of the Genesis G80 sedan. The model received a number of stylistic solutions from the new Genesis GV80. So, we can note the dual optics in the front. The G80 offers uncompromising style and practicality, presenting the most up-to-date interpretation of the classic sedan profile with the ideal coupe proportion combined with the signature design language Athletic Elegance. And the sharp lines of the front and rear wings emphasize the powerful 20-inch wheels.

Under the hood of the next generation sedan, 2.5 and 3.5 Turbo GDi engines are located, however, Genesis did not install a 3.0-liter diesel engine on the sedan (it will save it as an exclusive to the GV80). Instead, a 2.2-liter unit will be located under the hood.

Recall that the modification with the Sport prefix in the name is also in the current G80. The old G80 Sport / Ultimate was powered by a 376-horsepower gas-turbocharged V6 3.3 T-GDI with a maximum torque of 510 Nm. However, now it will be replaced by a forced V6 3.5 T-GDI: the output will supposedly be increased to 420 hp, the torque will already be 559 Nm. By the way, the previous model also has a 420-horsepower version, but then the standard sedan with an “aspirated” V8 5.0, and even this option is sold only in the USA.
