What are the Differences between the 2018 Genesis G80 Trim Levels?

If you’re seriously considering the 2018 Genesis G80, you might be wondering what trim levels are available on the vehicle and what you get with each. The good news is that the G80 is a true luxury sedan, so no matter which trim you go with – it’s going to be loaded up with premium features.

There are, however, distinct differences between the various trim levels, and as you navigate up the model ladder, the features become more plentiful. Genesis of Tuscaloosa has taken the time to review all the 2018 G80 trim levels and highlight the advantages of each. Consider this your online buying guide to help you determine exactly which 2018 G80 model you want to test drive at our Tuscaloosa, AL Genesis dealership.

One important feature to note is that each trim level is available in either rear wheel drive or all wheel drive configuration.


2018 Genesis G80 Trim #1: Standard for 3.8

This trim would be considered the “base” model for the 2018 Genesis G80. Calling any Genesis model “base” seems a shame given all the amazing features it offers, but you get the gist. This trim comes with a 3.8L engine under the hood that delivers 311 horsepower.

It also comes jam-packed with a wide variety of technology options including an eight-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a navigation system, and many other features. In addition, it’s got all the luxury amenities you expect like leather seating, Bi-Xenon HID headlights, and leather-wrapped steering wheel.

While it’s the least expensive trim in the 2018 G80 lineup, you can plainly see that you get a ton of features for the price.

2018 Genesis G80 Trim #2: 3.8 Premium Package

The 3.8 Premium Package builds off the standard trim by adding a Lexicon fourteen-speaker surround sound system, panoramic sunroof, wireless device charging station, and a few more goodies into the mix. It’s powered by the same 3.8L engine under the hood as the previous trim. Think of the 3.8 Premium package as the base model “plus” some other incredible options. It’s perfect if you want a bit more “bells and whistles” than the Standard for 3.8 version of the 2018 Genesis G80.

2018 Genesis G80 Trim#3: 3.8 Ultimate Package

The 2018 Genesis G80 3.8 Ultimate Package includes all the features of the Standard and Premium trims and tops them off with some key enhancements. For starters, the touchscreen system in this sedan is 9.2-inches rather 8-inches. You also get top of the line matte finish wood and aluminum trim inside the cab along with premium grade leather seats. On the outside, this trim utilizes full LED headlights with Dynamic Bending Light. This technology allows the headlights to actually turn in the direction of the curve you are taking on the road to provide superior illumination for nighttime driving.

2018 Genesis G80 Trim#4: Standard for Sport 3.3T

If you are looking for the 2018 G80 with sporty looks and capabilities – this is definitely the trim for you. The Standard for Sport 3.3T features a powerful 3.3L GDI twin-turbo V6 engine under the hood that delivers 365 horsepower. It also has exterior appearance enhancements like sport front lower bumper cover, sport dark chrome grille surround/insert, sport dark chrome window trim, sport rocker molding, sport rear lower bumper diffuser, and dark tint rear combination taillight cover. You also get all the interior luxury features included in the Ultimate package trim.

2018 Genesis G80 Trim#5: 5.0 Ultimate Package

Now, we get to the absolute crème de la crème in the 2018 G80 lineup. The 5.0 Ultimate Package includes absolutely every feature and option available from the manufacturer. That means you get all the amenities from the 3.8T Ultimate Package with a significant engine upgrade.

When you opt for the 5.0 Ultimate Package, you get a monstrously powerful 5.0L GDI V8 engine that is capable of generating 420 horsepower. That’s not a misprint. That’s 420 horses under the hood of this midsized luxury sedan. Yes, it’s the priciest model in the 2018 G80 lineup, but when you compare the G80 versus similar offerings from Lexus, Mercedes, and BMW – you’re still coming out with more money in your pocket.
