2021 Genesis GV80 Buying Advice

Which Genesis GV80 Model is Right for Me?

The Genesis GV80 offers three trims, and all of them are well equipped. Though we recommend GV80 Advanced brings more comfort, infotainment, and active safety features than the base trim. This trim gets the heated seats and a heating steering wheel. With a 3.5T engine, a standard 4WD system makes it more than capable, for a price of $59,150.

8.1/10

"At 194.7 inches, the GV80’s length is nearly identical to the Mercedes-Benz GLE and BMW X5." - The Kelley Blue Book.

For a luxury SUV starting at $48,900, the Genesis GV80's distinctive styling elements bring a Bentley Bentayga design comparison from a lot of reviewers and enthusiasts. The G-Matrix pattern is evident throughout the GV80's exterior. Opt for the $57,050 Prestige trim GV80 and you get massive 22-inch wheels wrapped with Michelin Primacy Tour all-season rubber. Even lesser trims start out on still-large 19 inches.  At 194.7 inches, the GV80’s length is nearly identical to the Mercedes-Benz GLE and BMW X4.

2021 Genesis GV80 looks way costlier than its MSRP!

The GV80's exterior elements include a diamond-mesh grille, and a twin headlight holding quad-LED headlamps on the front, while the rear end looks beautiful with that sporty spoiler, curvy tail lamps, and an elongated rearmost window and D-pillar. The 2021 GV80 gets tinted glasses and select exterior colors; exhausts get the chrome tip design.
