The New Genesis GV80’s Gorgeous Exterior
The delight starts when you first spot this stately mid-size SUV. The chrome shield grille works perfectly on the tall nose and is complemented by a beautiful chrome trim on the window surrounds, lighting elements, lower rear bumpers, wheels, and grills in the front fenders. The long hood adds a bit of a sporty touch, as do the smartly tapered side window lines and wide dual exhaust outlets.
The look of the new model is even better inside where available open-pore wood, knurled metal dials, and diamond-pleated leather create the feel of a relaxing lounge. A wide 14.5-inch touchscreen, complemented with a digital instrument cluster can surely add a techie favor as well.
Genesis offers the GV80 in three trims, with all-wheel or rear-wheel drive and a choice of two turbocharged engines. The standard version of GV80 comes well equipped with a 300-horsepower engine and amenities like synthetic leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated power front seats, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay compatibility, and 19-inch alloy wheels. The new model costs about $60,000 with the twin-turbo V-6 and all-wheel-drive, and it tops out at around $70,000 in a class with competitors that can easily reach six figures.
The Genesis GV80 comes standard with active lane control, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors with rear emergency braking, driver-attention monitor, and parking sensors. Buyers can also get a surround-view camera system, automatic parking, and a blind-spot camera system. It’s the first SUV from Genesis and because of its great features. Combined with luxury, value, and performance, it can easily be named the best luxury car to buy in 2021.
