Model Preview

The Genesis GV80 rolled out in 2021, the first SUV model for the Genesis brand. This model shares its platform with the G80 sedan, which was redesigned for 2021.

The Genesis GV80 is a medium-sized luxury SUV that seats five or seven. Its look advances the brand’s current styling direction featuring an oversized crest-shaped grille and distinctive exterior lighting.

The interior is spacious with a symmetrical layout wrapped in leather and accented with wood trim. Special touches such as knurled machine finish on the switchgear draws attention to the details. Features such as power bolstering in the front seats and circular lumbar support are welcome, though unexpected.

Five sit comfortably across the first two rows. In the Advanced+ trim with the third row, the seats are tight and confining, useful for short people who take equally short trips. Genesis has yet to measure the cargo area, but it is tall and deep.

On the tech side, the GV80 demonstrates its leadership. All trims get a 14.5-inch touchscreen display; a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is available. Other features include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone compatibility, four USB ports, Bluetooth, and a 12-speaker audio system. Shoppers can also upgrade to a 21-speaker Lexicon audio system and a wireless device charger.

The Genesis GV80 features two engine choices. The standard engine is a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 300 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. Also available is a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 with 375 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque. Power travels to the rear or to all four wheels via a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission.

The GV80 comes with a full suite of driver-assist safety features. All trims feature automatic high-beam LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, active lane control, rear automatic emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring. Options include a head-up display and a surround-view camera system. The SUV also features an automatic parking system that may be operated inside the car or controlled remotely with a key fob.

Pricing & Release Date

Genesis hasn’t set a release date yet, but we should see the 2022 GV80 late this spring.

The 2022 GV80’s pricing should hold close to what the current model costs. That pricing runs from $49,925 to $66,075 MSRP, including the destination charge.

Among the Genesis’ top competitors are the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class, Audi Q7, Volvo XC90, and the BMW X5.
