Usability Reviews are available exclusively to UI/UX service subscribers. Find out more about the service here

The 2017 Genesis G80 stands out in offering a luxury feature set at a non-luxury price point, an appealing approach across the Genesis lineup. Competing with the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and BMW in this space is no small task, but there’s conquest to be had for a sleek sedan with a refined interior topping out under $60,000.

Standard in the G80 from a technology perspective are three years of Genesis Connected Services, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, smart cruise control with stop/start, a 8-inch touchscreen with navigation, a 4.3-inch instrument cluster display, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. Options added to the vehicle tested were the Premium and Ultimate packages, which add more premium 9.2-inch and 7-inch displays to the center stack and instrument cluster, respectively. A full color windscreen head-up display comes as a part of the Ultimate package as well.
