GENESIS has moved to all-petrol power for its 2022 G80 line-up with the 2.5-litre turbo-petrol variant taking over duties as the entry point to the range.
Now priced from $86,000 plus on-road costs, the G2.5 is $1224 dearer than it was in 2021, and like the range-topping G3.5, is offered in two trim grades, Sport and Sport Line priced at $6000 apiece.
Both G80 variants are further available with an upgraded Luxury Package for 2022. As part of the optional package, the G80 now features driver and front passenger ergo motion seats, and a wireless phone charger for rear occupants.
Matte paint continues to add $2000 to the asking price.
“With new Sport and Sport Line variants and an enhanced Luxury Package, 2022 G80 builds on the model’s renowned Athletic Elegance,” Genesis Motors Australia CEO Ted Lee said.
“(The) 2022 G80 gives every customer additional safety, style, and convenience features, to create an even more enticing sports luxury sedan package,” he added.
The rear-wheel drive G2.5 is powered by a 224kW/422Nm turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The chassis of the G80 G2.5 is suspended by Genesis’ Road Preview Electronically Controlled Suspension (ECS) while braking duties are enhanced by larger four-piston monobloc calipers on the front axle.
The newest G80 variant rides on five-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels in a Hyper Silver and is further differentiated by model-specific Sports exterior and interior styling.
Meanwhile, the G3.5 continues to offer a 279kW/530Nm twin-turbocharged V6 with standard eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
Priced from $102,000 (+$2224) plus on-road costs, the flagship variant is also equipped with rear-wheel steering – reducing the turning circle from 11.6 to 10.9m – an active road noise control system, a new Sport+ drive mode, and launch control, in addition to all the Sport Line features.
All 2022 G80 variants are further enhanced by the addition of an Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA) system as part of an extensive standard safety package.
Both the G80 G2.5 and G3.5 are offered with a choice of 13 paint colours, eight upholstery choices in a selection of six colours, and with three trims in open pore real wood or Real Carbon (carbon-fibre).
Sport and Sport Line variants adopt a more aggressive appearance that opens with a unique front bumper, featuring enlarged lower intakes and air curtain inlets, and a dark chrome front grille with matching dark chrome exterior highlights.
There are also 20-inch Sport five-spoke alloy wheels with a dark grey finish and G-Matrix pattern, and black-painted monobloc front calipers.
G80 Sport and Sport Line variants further receive a redesigned rear bumper with side air vents and dual exhausts with Crest Grille-shaped finishers.
All Genesis petrol models are backed by a complimentary five-year/50,000km scheduled servicing plan and five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty, roadside assistance and Valet Service program.
