    I would still like understand the real differences between the 2017 G80 ultimate and the 2018 G80 sport other than the engine and cosmetic changes. Also, since they are now in the same price class what about a comparison of the G80 sport with the BMW 540 and Audi A6 in terms of driving performance such as acceleration, braking and slalom speed. This would be meaningful.

    Other than engine and cosmetics, here is what I have identified:

    19" wheels with staggered fitment (only the V8 gets 19's now)
    "Sport tuned" suspension with continuously variable damping,
    Upgraded vented rear disc brakes as opposed to non-vented in all other G80's. The fronts are probably the V8 size discs too.
    Transmission is "2nd generation" with shift by wire and faster shift times. I drove one and it is definitely more responsive
    Around view camera, no 2017's other than the G90 have this

    If it helps at all I drove the 2017 g80 v6 and v8 modules and passed on them. I did not think they were bad cars but I wanted to see what the sport had to offer. After driving the sport I waited a few days and bought it. I felt the changes made to the sport make a big difference to the overall ride and performance. Maybe I am just crazy.

    In full disclosure I am not a big car person. With that said obviously I have no authority to be taken seriously on anything I say. I own cars mainly for function (getting from point a to point b).

    Lastly, I do think hyundai/genesis is a bit bold/crazy/stupid to price the g80 sport so high compared to an A6 and 540. I did drive both and opted for the g80 sport. I was also looking for something different as I am not a big fan of both BMW and Audi.
