2024 Genesis G80 facelift revealed, confirmed for Australia

Genesis has unveiled its facelifed G80 sedan for 2024, bringing in a freshened up design, revised interior, while adding more technology. It’s been confirmed to arrive in Australia mid next year.

At the front, the 2024 G80 showcases a new dual-mesh grille featuring the company’s two-line crest theme, with a new lower mesh section that runs the width of the car. The company’s trademark twin-line headlights feature MLA technology (Micro Lens Array) for that really crisp look.

Along the sides you’ll notice some new-look 20-inch alloy wheels, with the same parabolic side profile carrying over from before. And then at the back you’ll see a fresh diffuser section with hidden exhausts, featuring two V-shaped dips that are inspired by the crest grille shape.

Inside, Genesis is introducing a massive 27-inch OLED display, integrating the multimedia and instrument cluster into one seamless screen. A separate touch-type climate control panel below ensures easy and quick reach for the driver. Down the console, Genesis has refined its shift-by-wire rotary selector to showcase crystal-like details.

Engine specifications are yet to be confirmed. But as a guide, the current model is offered with a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol that develops 279kW, and there’s a 2.5-litre turbo four-cylinder entry model producing 224kW. A fully electric version is also available, generating 272kW.

Genesis is also showing off its new G80 Sport variant (pictured below in red), which comes with a unique front grille area and larger side intakes, sportier bumper bars and diffuser areas, and a bespoke interior with a D-shaped steering wheel, two types of carbon trimmings (red and silver), and sports seats.

The exterior will be available in 10 different colour options, including a new Brooklyn Brown option for that classy yet elegant look. Buyers will also be able to select between four interior colour options.

Local specifications and further details will be announced in the near future. And as mentioned, Genesis is planning to launch the new model in Australia during the middle of 2024.
