2021 Genesis G80 spotted in India for the first time

The G80 is a mid-range luxury sedan that rivals the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series and Audi A6.

The Genesis G80 sedan has been spotted in India. However, it is unclear if the car is a test mule or a private import.

Genesis is a premium sub-brand of Hyundai. It's like how Lexus is to Toyota. The G80 is a mid-range luxury sedan that is just about 5 meters in length and rivals the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series and Audi A6.

The G80 has very unique exterior with a large 'crest' grille at the front, a coupe-like roofline and split headlights and tail lamp clusters. The interior is well appointed with dual-tone leather upholstery and wooden trims. It is equipped with a 14.5-inch touchscreen infotainment head-unit and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. 

In the international market, the G80 is offered with three engine options. These include a 2.5-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder, a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 and a 2.2-litre diesel engine. An 8-speed automatic transmission is standard across the range.
