The G80 luxury sedan has had a makeover for 2024, with sharp new looks and more interior tech
According to the South Korean luxury arm of Hyundai, “the G80 embodies the brand’s design philosophy of ‘Athletic Elegance’ with design upgrades, including headlamps built with MLA technology and the Two-Line Crest Grille”.
The G80 is a relatively small seller here in Australia, with the model shifting just 47 units in 2023.
For 2024, the Genesis G80 will be available in both G80 and G80 Sport guises.
The new Genesis G80 is scheduled for launch in Australia in mid 2024. Australian pricing is yet to be confirmed.
The biggest change to the Genesis G80 for 2024 is in its design, with a new dual mesh grille design, updated two-level LED headlights and new design 20-inch alloy wheels inspired by aircraft propellers.
Also new for the G80 is a redesigned rear end with new rear diffusers and a hidden exhaust system.
Inside, a large 27-inch OLED screen integrates both the instrument cluster and the infotainment into one.
Ten exterior colours, including new Brooklyn Brown, will be available, along with four interior colours.
Although it’s unconfirmed so far, it’s likely that the 2024 Genesis G80 will continue to be powered by a mixture of engines.
Currently, a 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine is available, producing 224kW/422Nm and linked to a rear-wheel-drive configuration.
A 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine is also available that produces 279kW/530Nm and is mated to an all-wheel-drive system.
Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The all-electric Electrified G80 is also expected to gain this styling update for 2024.
