2021 Genesis G80 vs. Its Competition

2021 Genesis G80
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The redesigned 2021 Genesis G80 will once again take on German sedans and their dizzying array of options and body styles.

The refreshed 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class can be had as a sedan or wagon, and likely a coupe and convertible.

The 2020 BMW 5-Series can be had as a plug-in hybrid or sick M5 performance version, but the turbo-6 in the M40i is quite nice, as are the latest tech features.

Don’t forget the 2020 Audi A7, or the first U.S.

arrival of the A6’s heart-pumping companion wagon, the RS 6 Avant.

The 2020 Volvo S90 graces the bunch with the most sophisticated style, while the 2020 Cadillac CT5 is a new take on an old dog, fitting somewhere between the defunct ATS and CTS.
