BEST ROAD TRIP EVER: 2021 Genesis G80 3.5T Prestige


During COVID, have you been wondering what car is perfect for a family road trip?

We took a 2021 Genesis G80 3.5T Prestige (Black Forest / Beige) to Death Valley. Two adults, a teen and a tween and we absolutely loved the G80. Thank goodness for the car navigation system as we had no cell service in the park.

It drives like a dream and we loved the special features like the camera that shows the turn lanes as well as the massage seat for the driver. The overhead camera view when parking was another favorite feature as well as the heated steering wheel in the morning. The wireless charging was also very useful.

The kids loved that they could control their own air conditioning, had their own charging ports and that their seats had a comfortable incline. Eva and Alessio thought the car was very stylish with plenty of space. The sunscreens on the back window and the sunroof were other favorite features.

We give this car our highest rating! Thank you Genesis!
