We’ve praised the new Genesis G80 for setting a new standard in panache for the luxury brand, and now the automaker has doubled down by introducing a Sport trim that comes out later this year. The Sport package’s visual enhancements will now come standard on all V-6–powered G80 3.5T models, and Genesis has also shared that the G80 Sport Prestige will receive a rear-wheel-steering system and optional summer tires.
Several design tweaks will help the Sport look the part, including a reworked front grille and bumper, Sport-specific 20-inch wheels, a tweaked rear bumper, and a revised lower rear diffuser. The cabin will also receive new embellishments including a three-spoke steering wheel and aluminum and carbon-fiber interior trim pieces.
Genesis will debut two new interior color schemes on the G80 Sport. The first is a black monotone look with either gray or red contrast stitching, and the second is a black and Sevilla Red two-tone scheme. Buyers will also be able to choose from new quilted or chevron-style patterned stitching.
The G80 Sport doesn’t get any extra power, as this model uses a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 375 horsepower. The non-Sport 2022 Genesis G80 2.5T models still come with the same turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-four as before. It starts at $49,045 with rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive is a $3150 upcharge. It comes in base, Advanced, and Prestige trim levels. For the full story, check out this article from Car And Driver.
