Flagship Genesis GV80 SUV here in October

All-new Genesis GV80 large SUV to take on Lexus, Euros from $90,600 plus ORC

19 Aug 2020

GENESIS Motors Australia has released pricing and specification for its all-new flagship GV80 large SUV, which will arrive in local showrooms in October priced from $90,600 plus on-road costs.


The four-variant range tops out at $108,600, with three different engine options available – two petrol and one diesel.


The GV80 will wade into battle against the likes of the Leuxs RX (from $71,556) as well as European offerings such as the Audi Q7 ($101,900), BMW X5 ($102,900), Jaguar F-Pace ($76,952), Land Rover Discovery ($72,856), Mercedes-Benz GLE ($105,090), Volkswagen Touareg ($80,790) and Volvo XC90 ($89,990).


First revealed in February, the GV80 helps usher in a new exterior styling direction for Genesis, with split, flat LED headlights, a large mesh grille, large alloy wheels (either 20- or 22-inch) and a similar tail-light motif.


Specification is largely identical across the range regardless of engine choice, with only minor spec differences separating the variants.


Inside, the GV80 is offered in five-seat configuration for the 2.5T or seven-seat guise for all AWD versions, with leather upholstery available in five different colours and four choices of open-pore wood trims.


Other features include ambient interior lighting, 12-way adjustable power front seats with four-way lumbar support, heated and ventilated front seats, remote start, power tailgate, dual-zone climate control with haptic touchscreen, panoramic sunroof and acoustic laminated windshield and front glass.


All grades score a new-generation 14.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, complemented by a 12-inch head-up display, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, augmented reality sat-nav, DAB+ digital radio, wireless smartphone charging and a 1050-watt, 21-speaker Lexicon premium sound system.


Standard safety kit extends to forward collision avoidance assist with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane-change assist, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, high-beam assist, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, blind spot monitoring and collision avoidance assist, surround-view monitor and 10 airbags, among other features.


All grades are available with the optional $10,000 Luxury package, which brings an expansive range of upgrades including forward attention warning, reverse parking collision avoidance assist, intelligent front lighting, soft-close doors, rear privacy glass, Nappa leather upholstery with quilted seat pattern and suede headliner, 18-way adjustable driver’s seat with massage function, heated and ventilated second-row seats with power adjustment for the second and third rows, power-operated rear sun shades, heated steering wheel, three-zone climate control, road noise cancellation, smart parking assist and a 12.3-inch 3D digital instrument cluster. 


The entry-level 2.5T – offered in both rear- and all-wheel drive guises – is underpinned by a 2.5-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine developing 224kW/422Nm, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission like all GV80s.


Opting for the AWD configuration adds $5000 to the GV80’s asking price.


Next up is the $103,600 3.0D AWD, employing a new 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine good for 204kW/588Nm, with handling aided by the introduction of an electronic limited-slip differential.


The 3.0D gains a couple enhancements over the four-pot, including 22-inch alloys and adaptive suspension, which uses a camera to read the road ahead adjust for bumps and imperfections.


Sitting atop the range is the $108,600 3.5T AWD, which produces 279kW/530Nm from its turbocharged 3.5-litre petrol V6.


Cargo capacity for the GV80 sits at 727 litres, which can be expanded to 2144L with the rear seats folded. Braked towing capacity is pegged at 2722kg.


Aside from the Luxury Package, the only other available option is matte paint, which asks $2000.


The GV80 comes with a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty, with five years of complementary scheduled servicing and roadside assist.


Genesis Motors Australia CEO Jun Heo said he was excited to introduce the brand’s fist SUV in Australia.


“Having established Genesis in Australia as a maker of high-quality luxury cars, we are delighted now to introduce the brand’s first SUV in the form of the all-new GV80,” he said.


“As well as appreciating the Genesis pillars of desirable design, advanced technology, all-road capability and superior comfort, GV80 customers will be treated to the unprecedented luxury of the Genesis-To-You service, and a convenient all-inclusive ownership experience.”
