If German options like BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz are too flamboyant per your liking and seem to dent your budget, the affordable midsize luxury sedan class comes in as a handy choice. It coalesces practicality with luxury and bestows an opulent aura to deliver the best bang for the buck. The Genesis G80 is an embodiment of a similar set of ideologies and builds its place in the market with its luxuriously-appointed interiors, cogent powertrain options, and striking exterior design. While its fuel efficiency seems substandard, there are more advantages to owning the sedan than its flaws.

The 2018 Genesis G80 has been subtly updated in terms of its features, but it does benefit from an all-new Sport trim. The newly added trim vaunts a turbocharged V6 engine for those who want better performance. It is priced at $41,750 for its base variant and carries a sticker of $55,750 for its top-tier option with a V8 engine. In its segment, the 2018 G80 competes with the likes of the Cadillac XTS, the Lincoln Continental, and the Lexus GS 350.
