What's New

After last year’s introduction, the Genesis GV80 returns as the luxury brand’s largest SUV. While there have been no major changes made to the GV80 for its second year outside of some minor trim-level reshuffling, it still retains the impressive display of technology, luxury, and standard active safety features that made waves throughout the automotive industry when it debuted.

Choosing Your Genesis GV80

Genesis offers three trim levels for the 2022 GV80. These trims include the Standard, Advanced, and Prestige which start at $51,245 (including destination fees) for a Standard model equipped with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder and rear-wheel drive and range up to $73,745 for the 3.5-liter V6-equipped Prestige. The GV80 is positioned above the GV70, a smaller luxury SUV.

Engine Choices

There are two engine options available across the three trims, including a 2.5-liter turbo four-cylinder and a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6. Both offer enough power to get the large SUV moving, but the V6 feels much more excited about the task when requested.

Both engines route power through an eight-speed automatic transmission with various driving modes like Comfort, Eco, and Sport. Rear-wheel drive is the base configuration for the four-cylinder engine with optional all-wheel drive for a $5,900 premium, but all V6-powered models come standard with AWD.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)Price
2.5L Turbo 4-Cylinder300 hp311 lb-ft23 mpgStandard
3.5L Twin-Turbo V6375 hp391 lb-ft20 mpg$4,500

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Most GV80 models come with enough seating for five, but the Advanced+ package available on the Advanced trimmed models equipped with the V6 adds a third row, increasing total seating to seven.

Rear legroom is generous in the GV80 at nearly 39 inches, but the rear seat offers only 30 inches. Cargo space is also generous, with 34.9 cubic feet behind the second row, and a cavernous 84.0 cubic feet with the second row folded flat.

Safety Features

The GV80 is one of the best-equipped luxury SUVs on the market today in terms of safety features. Sporting a Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS and a full five stars overall from NHTSA, it is one of the safest vehicles on the road in the event of a collision.

Its full list of standard advanced safety features is also impressive. All models come with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, an advanced version of adaptive cruise control that uses machine learning to drive like the GV80’s owner, lane-keeping assist, rear emergency braking, driver attention monitoring, and top-notch LED headlights. Most other luxury brands keep these must-have features locked behind four-figure option packages, but Genesis has included them all as standard.


The heart of the GV80’s infotainment system is a 14.5-inch touchscreen that features minimal physical buttons, a decision that brings joy to some but can baffle others. Instead, inputs are given via a rotating push-knob and a writing pad. While it looks great, it may take users a long time to figure out how to operate the system without thought.

That said, it is still loaded with tech features, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and various cloud-based services that will charge subscription fees. Further information can be presented with an optional 12.3-inch digital instrument display that can be customized as the driver requires.

GV80 Standard - MSRP From $51,245

The Standard GV80 comes well equipped with what you would expect from an SUV in its class. The Standard gets synthetic leather, 12-way adjustable heated front seats, the aforementioned 14.5-inch infotainment touchscreen, and dual-zone climate control. However, features like rain-sensing wipers, a hands-free power liftgate, and a fancy automatic-adjusting suspension put it ahead of most rival’s base models.

Selecting all-wheel drive adds more features, including a heated steering wheel, wireless device charging, and ventilated front seats, while opting for the V6 will also give you 20-inch wheels, and a panoramic sunroof.

GV80 Advanced - MSRP From $55,245

The Advanced trim brings a good amount more to the party, including the features added by AWD in the Standard Trim, a rear occupant alert system, and a 110V AC Power outlet in the second row. Basic piano black trim has been replaced with matte-finished wood, and the standard 12-speaker audio system has been replaced with a Lexicon 21-speaker system.

AWD on the Advanced Trim adds real leather, 20-inch wheels, parking assist, and a 360-degree camera. Stepping up to the V6 in the Advanced trim unlocks the option for the Advanced+ package, which adds the third row, a blind-spot monitor, and the Ergo Motion Seat designed to reduce driver fatigue.

GV80 Prestige - MSRP From $60,645

The Prestige trim adds all of the features from the Advanced AWD, as well as the 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, the Ergo Motion Seat, three-zone climate control, and heated second-row seats. Selecting AWD nets you a heads-up display and several comfort features like electronic adaptive suspension and active noise cancellation. V6 models receive Nappa Leather, soft-close doors, and even larger 22-inch wheels.

This V6 version of this trim also offers the $1,500 Prestige Matte package which adds matte paint with matte chrome trim and ventilated second-row seats. All told, you’ll be spending $76,745 for a GV80 fully outfitted at the Prestige Matte level.

CarsDirect Tip

We still think the most bang for your buck is with the Advanced trim with the 2.5-liter turbo four-cylinder and rear-wheel drive. While the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 adds some noticeable power, the GV80 is made for cruising, not racing. The 2.5-liter should suit most buyers perfectly.

Now Even More Luxurious. Just last year, the Genesis GV80 arrived as the South Korean luxury brand’s first SUV. With the 2022 GV80 entering its sophomore year, the SUV is doubling down on its luxury quotient.

For 2022, Genesis has introduced a new Prestige Signature trim. For consumers that enjoy being chauffeured around, the Prestige Signature has a few unique touches that are sure to be a hit. Or the trim is an ultra-luxurious way to get the kids to school. The biggest change is the standard four-seat layout with rear-seat captain’s chairs that are power-adjustable, heated, and cooled. The second row also gets its own wireless charging pad. On the outside, the Prestige Signature trim has unique 22-inch wheels and is available in either matte grey or matte white.

With the new four-seater Prestige Signature trim, Genesis has upped the GV80’s luxury quotient, though it will be a rare machine. Only 600 units of the trim will be sold in the U.S. and pricing starts at $78,295 (with destination).

Exquisite Interior, Divine Exterior. There’s a common design trend with modern SUVs. They all look similar. Chances are, if you park your midsize luxury SUV in a row of other SUVs, you’ll probably lose your car. This won’t be the case with the GV80. For people that like to stand out, the GV80 is your ticket to do just that.

The GV80 doesn’t have a bad angle, which is difficult for a vehicle that’s a midsize SUV. The enormous crest grille and split headlight design start things off on a stylish note, while the split taillights and liftgate that slightly protrude out are other standout design elements.

The real star of the show is the GV80’s interior. It’s downright opulent with exquisite materials and a simplistic design that makes the cabin feel even more upscale. Burnished wood, metal trim, and rich leather create a lavish cabin that feels special for the segment.

Genesis GV80

Comfortable Enough For Royalty. The GV80 doesn’t have the same blistering performance as other midsize SUVs, but it’s incredibly comfortable. The SUV’s front seats are supremely comfortable and supportive, with the available massaging feature resulting in an even more relaxing experience. Even the second-row seats are comfortable with approximately 38 inches of legroom.

There really isn’t a bad seat in the GV80, unless you’re in the third row. It’s only available on the 3.5T Advanced+ trim and is only usable by kids and teenagers. Even with the small seats, we wish Genesis would over them on more trims, as limiting them to the single trim that costs $69,095 limits their appeal.

In addition to having an opulent cabin, the GV80 also has a great ride. GV80s with the V6 engine come with an electronically controlled suspension system that utilizes a forward-facing camera to scan the road surface ahead and make adjustments to the suspension. This system works incredibly well and leads to a cushioned ride.

Not As Value-Packed As Before. For 2022, pricing for the GV80 has increased to $51,295. Previously, the GV80 started at $49,925. The increase makes the GV80 less of a value option than before, but it’s still far more affordable than the majority of its competition and comes with more standard features. The GV80 comes so well-equipped, that most people will struggle to find any holes in the SUV’s list of standard equipment.

Even the base GV80 comes with features like a 14.5-inch display, heated front seats, synthetic leather upholstery, a power liftgate, 12 audio speakers, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Genesis Digital Key, LED exterior lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control, self-leveling rear suspension, and a digital instrument cluster. The SUV also comes with nearly every advanced driver-assist safety feature under the sun as standard. There’s little reason to upgrade to a higher trim, as the features they add feel more along the lines of indulgences instead of must-haves.

Final Thoughts. When the Genesis GV80 arrived on the scene in 2021, it revealed that Genesis was a serious competitor in the highly competitive SUV scene. For its second model year on sale, the GV80 continues to be a force to be reckoned with. There’s very little the GV80 gets wrong and the things that are below-average are issues you’ll also find with competitors.

The Porsche Cayenne is a sportier midsize SUV with seriously powerful engines and sharper handling. It’s not nearly as value-forward as the GV80 and doesn’t come with the same standard features. The Cayenne is only available with two rows of seats.

The Volvo XC90 is another comfortable, upscale, and high-quality midsize SUV. The XC90 is one of the few vehicles in the class with an available plug-in hybrid powertrain, to be offered in an ultra-luxurious four-seating configuration, and to come packed with a long list of safety features.
