Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The G80 is almost unchanged for 2019, save for the addition of a Sport package to the base 3.8 model. Like the mid-range Sport model, the 3.8 Sport package adds copper-colored exterior and interior trim pieces, unique front and rear bumpers, a dark chrome grille, dual exhaust tips, 19-inch wheels, sport pedals, and a sport steering wheel.

Pros
Unbeatable value,
creamy ride,
high-tech standard infotainment and safety features.

Cons
Thirsty powertrains,
anonymous styling,
disappointing acceleration from the base V-6.
