2022 Genesis G80 vs. Its Competition

2022 Genesis G80 Sport
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The G80 takes on German sedans and their dizzying array of options and body styles.

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

The 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.

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

Don’t forget the Audi A7, or the heart-pumping companion wagon, the RS 6 Avant.
