If those in the market for a mid-luxury sedan simply look at the figures in order to make their decision, then the answer will be “yes.”
The Genesis G80 is an attempt to take the best elements of every German and Japanese premium sedan currently on sale and distil them into one vehicle.
For the convenience of entertainment lovers, the 2017 Genesis G80 is integrated withApple Car Play and Android Auto features. The car is equipped with a large 8-inch touchscreen system which can be upgraded to a 9.2-inch screen. The size should be smooth for an in-car infotainment system but it can’t be considered an overkill especially in a time where we enjoy watching movies, music on the go. A navigation system can be used with a smaller 4.3-inch display or a bigger 7-inch display.
If you’re on the fence about the Genesis G80, the company would like to point out that its passenger and cargo volume best those of the aforementioned competitors. Still on the fence? Genesis will also throw in 3 years of complimentary scheduled maintenance and valet services. Owners can schedule to have their car picked up for maintenance and dropped off at a time and location of their choosing. Still on the fence? The dealership might also have coffee and donuts if you get there early enough.
The connected services, as well as scheduled maintenance and valet services, are complimentary for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Owners can schedule service visits with a dealer online, and have their cars picked up wherever it is convenient. Complimentary loaner cars are included. Tesla Motors [NSDQ:TSLA] already offers a similar service, and Lincoln will add valet service beginning with the launch of the 2017 Continental later this year.
These services launch with the Genesis G80 and G90 sedans, and will be available on all future models, Genesis says. The G80 is essentially a rebadged version of the second-generation Hyundai Genesis that’s been on sale since the 2015 model year. The larger G90 is an all-new model that replaces the Hyundai Equus.
