2021 Genesis G80: The sexiest E-Class competitor yet

Midsize sedans might be going the way of the dinosaurs, but the third generation Genesis G80 wants to kickstart a revival with its sexy liftback style body.

Twin strips for the headlights, taillights and fender vents, and the big “crest” grille are definitely the brand’s signature design items.

The cabin looks super lux with a 14.5″ infotainment screen, a distinctive steering wheel, and digital instrument cluster.

The 2021 G80 will share a RWD/AWD platform with the new GV80 crossover. Although powertrains have yet to be confirmed, it will probably have a 216kW (290hp) 2.5L I4 turbo and a 275kW (370hp) 3.5L V6.

The G80 goes on sale in South Korea in March.
