FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., October 25, 2018 – The Genesis G80 carries over into the 2019 model year with few changes. For 2019, the available 3.8 Sport Package offers visual differentiation to G80 models equipped with the 3.8-liter V-6 engine. Taking cues from G80 3.3T, the 3.8 Sport Package enhances the G80 exterior with copper-accented center wheel cap surrounds, sport front and rear bumper covers and rocker molding, dark chrome grille surround and window trim, and dual exhaust tips. Unique 19-inch wheels are shod on all-season tires. Inside, sport pedals and a sport steering wheel complete the package.

Across the G80 3.8 range, an upgraded, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration replaces the prior-year model’s head unit. A 9.2-inch touchscreen navigation system remains optional.
