The 2023 Genesis G80 Sport Has Finally Arrived In The UK
Genesis has just launched the new G80 Sport in the UK market, some 15 months after the vehicle was first announced overseas.
Immediately making the G80 Sport stand out from the standard model are the dark gloss chrome trimmings found across the front bumper, grille, door sill panels, and window edge trims. The headlights also have black trim frames while found at the rear are exhaust trims that also have a darkened finish and perfectly complement the redesigned bumper.
The sporty new looks continue with the availability of red front brake calipers, sitting behind the new dark or light alloy wheels that are offered in 19- and 20-inch guises with two spoke styles, dubbed Diamond Cutting Design and Dark Sputtering Design. Just like in other markets, Cavendish Red paint is available exclusively on the G80 Sport.
Genesis has also made some alterations to the interior of the G80 Sport. They include an exclusive three-spoke steering wheel with adapted decorative stitching, aluminum sports pedals, and various surfaces trimmed in carbon fiber or with a hybrid metal weave. Adding to the luxurious feel of the car is diamond-shaped quilting and contrasting piping throughout.
British customers can also order the new G80 Sport with a Comfort seat package that includes electrically-adjustable Ergo-Motion seats with a massage function for both the driver and front passenger.
Slotted beneath the of all G80 Sport models is a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine pumping out 304 hp that’s coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission as standard. While just one engine is available, customers can choose between rear- and all-wheel drive.
Local prices kick off at £49,450 ($56,693) for the rear-wheel drive and £51,825 ($59,416) for the all-wheel drive model.
