The Genesis G80 has made its digital world premiere, offering the next generation of technology enabled luxury.
The sedan, which enters the South Korean market today (Monday March 30) and will be released in the second half of the year in other markets, offers new features focused on integrating the G80 with the client’s lifestyle.
Features include Remote Smart Parking Assistant for parking in narrow spaces, controlled from inside the car or outside remotely via the key fob.
The 12.3in 3D instrument cluster recognizes the driver’s eyes and provides driving information, and can be converted to 2D depending on preferences.
The Genesis Integrated Controller allows users to set destinations or enter telephone numbers by writing on the main control center instead of a keyboard input.
A 14.5in touchscreen infotainment system links with the Genesis Integrated Controller to support Genesis Quick Guide and Valet mode.
Valet mode enhances security so that personal information does not appear on infotainment screens when using valet parking services.
The navigation system comes with over-the-air wireless updates, and phone connectivity is linked to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Luxury focused items include an ergo motion seat function with seven air cells for the driver seat, reducing fatigue via a stretching mode and automatic posture correction functions.
Ambient mood lamps in various colors add a sense of calm to the passenger space.
Genesis has enhanced the engine’s sound with its Active Sound Design as a standard feature on all G80s with gasoline engines.
The Lexicon sound system enables passengers to enjoy the sound effects of a concert, such as Quantum Logic Surround Audience Mode/Stage Mode.
The first-row HVAC system enables the driver to adjust the heated/ventilated seats in the second row and the air conditioning mode independently of the first row.
