The 2021 Genesis G80 is a luxury sedan that exhibits elegant styling and sporty capabilities. Genesis of Brunswick will compare this high-end model with the 2021 Audi A6 sedan, which is also designed for the luxury market in America. Equipped with cutting-edge safety technologies, both full-size sedans have been awarded the Top Safety Pick+ label from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.


Standard on the 2021 Genesis G80, a turbocharged 2.5 L engine produces up to 300 horsepower by burning premium fuel. When revolving at 1,650 RPM, this direct-injected powertrain cranks out 311 pound-feet of torque. By contrast, the 2021 Audi A6’s 2.0 L turbo engine can’t generate more than 261 net hp. Built on the TFSI platform, the I-4 power plant only cranks out 273 lb-ft. Made of cast iron, the compact engine block is paired with the Audi Valvelift technology for reliable efficiency. You could sign up for a test drive of the Genesis G80 with a 3.5 L V6 engine that’s fitted with twin turbochargers. Genesis of Brunswick reveals the 375-hp rating of this high-output propulsion system. When working at 1,300 RPM and above, this six-cylinder powertrain unleashes up to 391 lb-ft. The Audi A6’s 3.0 L TFSI engine has a maximum output of only 335 hp and 369 lb-ft. Made of aluminum alloy, this V6 powertrain accelerates the vehicle from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.1 seconds. Nevertheless, the 3.0 L TFSI engine is supplemented by the Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle technology that generates up to 48 volts of on-demand electricity. The luxurious Genesis model simply doesn’t need to rely on a hybrid system for any backup power. When it comes to efficiency, both high-end sedans offer a combined fuel economy of up to 26 MPG.


The Genesis G80 at Genesis of Brunswick is equipped with an automatic transmission system that makes eight gear speeds for sporty handling. By contrast, the 2021 Audi A6’s S Tronic auto transmission offers a maximum of seven gear ratios. Augmented by the next-generation Ultra technology, the vehicle’s legendary Quattro All-Wheel Drive gets a good grip on pavement. You could enjoy a test drive of the Genesis G80 with an all-wheel drive that also maximizes traction on paved surfaces. Using the Intelligent Drive Mode, you could command the AWD and transmission with more precision. Five driving modes are at your disposal, including the Smart and Sport. A rear-wheel drive is also available for this luxury Genesis sedan that’s tuned for smooth acceleration. You may ask Genesis of Brunswick about the G80’s other performance-tuned features, such as the Electronically Controlled Suspension. The 2021 A6 isn’t available with such a dynamic suspension system that responds to the road in real time. However, this sporty Audi sedan has the Electromechanical Progressive Steering for easy handling.


The Genesis G80 at Genesis of Brunswick boasts best-in-class safety features, like the Forward Attention Warning. Linked to an infrared camera, the FAW detects potential drowsiness and inattention behind the wheel. This upscale sedan also has the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with emergency braking to prevent crashes with cars and pedestrians. You could sign up for a test drive of the Genesis G80 with the Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, which may correct the steering system if you don’t adequately respond to the warnings. If it identifies other vehicles moving from behind, the Safe Exit Assist will prevent the G80’s rear passengers from exiting. Of course, the SEA technology only works when this Genesis model is parked. Boasting the Top Safety Pick+ honor from the IIHS, the 2021 G80 is one of the safest luxury sedans in North America.
