The all-new 2021 Genesis GV80 is a luxury SUV that will bring numerous updates. According to the latest news, the new GV80 version will be available to purchase in the summer this year. So, what can we expect to be changed and better over the concept model? The manufacturer will definitively use a bolder look and it will add more features. Hyundai has been published a few new images, and at first glance, we can notice a more attractive body.
The cabin will also be better thanks to the use of more quality materials and a long list of standard features. Under the hood, the base model will be powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that will produce around 280 or 290 hp. Read more to find out the rest of the engine options.
2021 Genesis GV80 Will Use the Same Shield-Shaped Grille Like Genesis G90
The exterior design of 2021 Genesis GV80 looks futuristic and modern. Like the G90 sedan, the new SUV will feature many similar cues. Generally, GV80 will use the same shield-shaped grille that is also introduced on the Genesis G90 luxury sedan.
On top of that, the front dominates for sure thanks to Quad-LED lamps and the latest G-matrix pattern that is also visible on the wheels. On the back, the same design is present and only noticeable change is body-colored bumper and better shaped LED taillights.
The interior design of 2021 Genesis GV80 is revealed finally. This SUV dominates across the SUV segment. Also, it provides excellent comfort inside. Moreover, like before the GV80 is available with three rows of seats and a great arranged cabin. Thanks to that, there is enough space for all seven occupants. Headroom and legroom are one of the best in this segment.
The first expression inside is positive. The dashboard dominates with a new ultra-widescreen infotainment system and a separated HVAC system. We like the new look, especially air vents that give the illusion that they extend onto the entire width of the dash. The carmaker will also add more safety inside and we can expect a high rating from testing.
The stylish and somewhat odd 2021 Genesis GV80 will be offered with a few powertrains, according to the Korean Car Blog. This model will be powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder, gas-powered 3.5-liter V6, and a diesel-powered 3.0-liter. The base one model will come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that will produce around 280 or 290 hp.
However, diesel is an inline-six-cylinder, and it is capable to deliver 278 hp and 434 lb-ft. The final one is the strongest. This engine is a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that makes up to 380 horsepower and 390 pound-feet. All three powertrains will use the same eight-speed dual-clutch automatic as the front-wheel-drive system as standard.
