Review

The Genesis G80 has its strengths, namely safety and interior quality. It’s worth a look if you’re bored with the big-selling European alternatives. Just bear in mind that, objectively at least, the BMW 5 Series is a considerably better all-rounder.

get the best price

Even entry-level Premium Line models come with 19in alloys, heated front seats, adaptive cruise control and keyless entry, plus absolutely loads of safety kit.

We’ve yet to try this diesel engine, but with 204bhp it should deliver respectable acceleration.
