Overview

When the updated model is released the following year, the Genesis GV80 will continue to draw attention as it did when it first launched in 2021. The exterior of the 2025 Genesis GV80 has been redesigned, and the interior has been improved with a large 27-inch OLED screen. Because of its extensive list of standard amenities and excellent cabin, the GV80 was already one of our best luxury SUV choices. It’s now stepping up its game to contend with German luxury brands like BMW and Mercedes-Benz.


The basic engine is a 2.5-liter, 304-hp turbocharged four-cylinder that is limited to models with two rows of seats. It can accommodate up to seven passengers and add a third row thanks to the far more thrilling 380-hp twin-turbo V-6 engine. All GV80s have all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The interior of the GV80 is incredibly luxurious, featuring heated and air-conditioned seats for both front and rear passengers, heated armrests, and an almost silent ride, even when traveling at high speeds.

The New Thing in 2025

We go over the sportier GV80 Coupe separately, it is also a 2025 model year addition to the roster. Though their distinct design might take a second or two to identify, the GV80 sports a redesigned grille and what the firm refers to as Micro Lens Array headlights from the G90 sedan. There are new wheel designs, including a 22-inch alternative and a 20-inch multi-spoke unit. For 2025, a new hue is available in both glossy and matte finishes: Storr Green. The GV80’s infotainment screen and instrument cluster are now combined into a large 27.0-inch-wide touchscreen inside. For 2025, Genesis is introducing three new interior color options: Bordeaux Brown, Glacier White, and Earth Brown.

Engine Transmission and Performance

The two engine options that the GV80 came with are still available: a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6. You can get 300 horsepower and 375 horsepower out of those engines, respectively. These are decent results, and in a previously tested GV80 with the V6, we ran from 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds.

Only one of the two GV80 Coupe engines that the manufacturer claims will be available has been confirmed. The G90’s twin-turbo 3.5T e-SC V6, which stands for 48-volt electric supercharger, is the engine in question. The GV80 Coupe will share the same engine’s 409 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque as the G90.

Interior Comfort and cargo Space

The GV80’s 27-inch OLED display panel serves as the focal point of its updated interior design. The HVAC system and a few other controls have been moved to the center console, which is now closer to the driver’s line of sight.

While physical buttons, which were already scarce in the older GV80s, are nearly completely absent, knobs for features like temperature and volume settings are still there.


The front seats offer a very soothing massaging feature in addition to being supportive and comfy. Up to five people can fit in the second row on a normal three-across bench seat; a third row of seats is an optional feature, although the area behind it is constrained and should be reserved for small children. After the second row was folded flat, the GV80 could accommodate a total of 28 carry-on bags, of which we were able to place 13 behind it.

Connectivity and Infotainment

Sleek and narrow, a 27.0-inch screen spans the GV80’s custom dashboard. Genesis also has a 14.6-inch rear-seat display for rear passengers. A five-device Wi-Fi hotspot, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, wireless charging, and three years of free Genesis Connected Services are also included with every GV80.

Driver Assistance and Safety Features

Advanced driver aids and a plethora of technologies are also included on the GV80. This features lane maintain assistance, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning, and frontal collision warning with automated braking.

Pricing

The price will not be known until the cars are closer to going on sale, which is probably this coming spring, but the changes appear to be worthwhile enhancements to an already interesting car.
