Icons Reimagined

Genesis unveiled the redesigned GV80 and GV80 Coupe at an exclusive event held at the Seoul Wave Art Center, South Korea, with regional guests in attendance illustrating the importance of the Middle East market to the brand.

The enhanced GV80 brings the first model change in over three years, featuring the distinct signature of the base model with a comprehensive interior redesign. The front includes a newly designed Two-Line Crest Grille and the signature Two-Line headlamps.

The GV80’s robust and athletic SUV persona is accentuated with design elements such as larger air intakes and a wide skid plate on the front bumper, while the Guilloché-patterned emblem adds an elegant finishing touch to the luxury SUV image.

Along the exterior, a new chrome trim extends seamlessly through the sides and two reinvented wheel designs contribute to the refined character. At the rear, the muffler tips hidden in the bumper elevate the GV80’s sophistication. Key elements of the Genesis design language add to the model’s futuristic image with a distinctive V-shape chrome trim inspired by the iconic Crest Grille. The GV80 offers 11 exterior colours with the new addition of glossy and matte Storr Green.

The interior of the GV80 brings to life Genesis’ design ethos of the uniquely Korean concept of the Beauty of White Space, incorporating cutting-edge technology to create a sophisticated ambience. A 27-inch-wide OLED display integrates the cluster and the AVN (audio, video, navigation) screen.

The new luxury GV80 Coupe embodies Genesis’ design philosophy of Athletic Elegance. It effortlessly maximises practicality and sportiness with a distinctive design package, encompassing a dynamic exterior and a sporty, high-tech interior, complemented by a 3.5-litre gasoline turbo 48V electric supercharger (e-S/C) engine.

This model combines the practicality of an SUV with the dynamism of a coupe. The exterior creates a high-performance image, boasting an elegant yet daring silhouette, featuring the MLA-powered LED headlamps and double-layered Crest Grille as in the redesigned GV80.

The front design is further accentuated with an expanded air intake, Active Air Flap and four air vents, which improve engine cooling while also contributing to the coupe SUV’s bold appeal.

When viewed from the side, the arch-shaped Parabolic Line spanning the body and the low, sloping roofline strike a perfect harmony. Adding to its sporty profile, the GV80 Coupe grabs attention with Coupe-exclusive 20- and 22-inch wheels with distinctive spokes.

At the rear, the GV80 Coupe features a unique design with LED surface-emitting rear combination lamps and a wide integrated auxiliary brake light on the tailgate. A centrally descending rear spoiler adds a sporty touch.

The GV80 Coupe is available in a range of 12 exterior colour options, including the exclusive Bering Blue.

The GV80 is equipped with two powertrain options: a gasoline 2.5 turbo engine, which delivers a robust 304hp, and a gasoline 3.5 turbo engine, which produces a maximum output of 380hp. The GV80 Coupe offers two engine choices including the gasoline 3.5 turbo 48V electric supercharger (e-S/C), which features a robust 415hp.

The cars come with an array of convenience features, including Fingerprint Authentication System, UVC disinfection trays, heated armrests, front and rear touch-based handle sensors and a fragrance system that disperses pleasing scents throughout the car’s interior. Other notable additions include a 14.6-inch rear-seat display for streaming services and a Bang & Olufsen sound system. ✤
