The press service of the South Korean brand has published the specifications of the stylish sedan Genesis G80 Sport model 2022 model year. The novelty has received more aggressive styling and technical improvements.
Genesis showed the updated G80 Sport a little over a month ago – then photos of the new item and some of its technical characteristics were published. Now, the premium brand has shared more details about the car. So it was decided to mark the launch of sales in the South Korean market. There is more to the Sport version than just a slightly more aggressive exterior, because the midsize sedan has received some important updates as well.
Rear wheel steering helps improve handling and reduce turning circle.
At speeds up to 60 km / h, RWS steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to the front wheels, while at higher speeds they turn in the same direction.
As its name suggests, the G80 Sport features a sportier suspension with revised springs and shock absorbers with varying levels of damping that vary with the selected driving mode. The Sport + mode has also been added, which more fully unleashes the potential of the car.
Genesis will be selling the G80 Sport in its home market with the familiar 2.5- and 3.5-liter turbocharged petrol and 2.2-liter diesel engines. The base petrol engine produces 300 hp. (422 Nm), while the larger engine has 375 hp. and 530 Nm.
