Genesis G80 review - Reliability and safety

Excellent safety kit and an outstanding warranty and servicing package help the G80 stand out as a premium executive saloon choice

With Genesis being such a new brand, there isn’t too much in the way of definitive reliability data available, although being the luxury arm of parent company Hyundai should inspire some confidence. The Hyundai Kona topped our 2021 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey with excellent scores for reliability and build quality, while the Tucson SUV, i10 city car and the eco-friendly Ioniq model also feature in the 75-strong list of the best cars to own.

Industry crash-test body Euro NCAP awarded the G80 a full five-star rating, with a 91 per cent score for adult safety, 87 per cent for child protection and a reassuring 91 per cent mark for on-board safety assist technology.

All models include Smart Cruise Control (SCC) and a range of driver ‘Assist’ features: blind-spot collision-avoidance, lane keeping, forward collision-avoidance, intelligent speed limit, lane following and highway driving are all standard. 

All Genesis models are to be sold through bespoke stores rather than the usual dealer outlets, with a concierge-style service available to arrange delivery to your home address.

Warranty and servicing

Genesis offers a Care Plan for all of its model ranges that brings together warranty cover and servicing under one banner. The package includes a five-year warranty and free servicing with a limited mileage of up to 50,000 miles. When your car is due an inspection, Genesis will arrange to collect your vehicle, perform any necessary work and return it to an agreed location. A courtesy car will also be made available while your car is off the road.
