In 2025, Genesis is introducing some significant updates to its GV80 model. This marks a relatively quick turnaround since the initial launch of the SUV in 2021. The latest enhancements include the introduction of a coupe-like body style and improvements in engine performance. Genesis recently unveiled these updates during an event in Los Angeles, just ahead of the LA Auto Show.
The new 2025 GV80 Coupe is joining the lineup alongside the 2025 GV80 SUV, offering a sleeker and more stylish appearance reminiscent of models like the BMW X6 compared to the standard GV80 SUV’s design. This sporty coupe variant draws inspiration from the earlier GV80 Coupe Concept showcased at the New York Auto Show. One noticeable difference is the sloping rear roofline, which, while adding an element of elegance, does result in a reduction in rear cargo space. However, Genesis has not disclosed specific details regarding the extent of this cargo space reduction.
Moreover, the GV80 Coupe packs more power and exudes a sportier aura. One of the key upgrades is the introduction of a modified version of the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 engine found in the GV80 SUV. While the SUV variant produces 375 hp, the GV80 Coupe version steps up the game by generating 409 hp. This enhanced power delivery is attributed to what Genesis refers to as an “electric supercharger.” It’s important to clarify that this term might be somewhat misleading, as the added power is actually derived from a 48-volt mild-hybrid electric motor, similar to the one seen in the flagship G90 sedan. Specific figures related to torque, performance, and fuel efficiency have not been disclosed by Genesis at this time.
The GV80 SUV will continue to offer the 375-hp twin-turbo V-6 engine, as well as the base 2.5-liter turbo-4 engine delivering 300 hp.
Inside the GV80’s cabin, notable changes have been made. A new 27.0-inch-wide OLED display now seamlessly integrates the instrument cluster and infotainment screen, complete with a physical volume knob for convenient control. The center console features touch-based HVAC controls, an improved wireless smartphone charging pad that offers better visibility of your phone while charging, and a redesigned crystal-like shift knob. Additionally, there are new two-tone steering wheel designs. The quality of materials and overall design aesthetics maintain their high standards, making it a standout in the market.
For those seeking a sportier feel, the GV80 Coupe incorporates several distinctive elements, including a D-shaped steering wheel, the option for carbon trim, unique stitching patterns on the seats, and metal accents on the brake and accelerator pedals.
Genesis has always been recognized for its striking design language, and the GV80 SUV continues this tradition with subtle refinements. The front fascia boasts a refined version of the brand’s iconic crest grille, along with new LED headlights, larger air intakes, and a broader skid plate on the front bumper. Chrome trim accents run along the sides, and there are fresh wheel designs available in 20- and 22-inch sizes.
The GV80 Coupe retains the same design language but with the addition of a more streamlined roofline. At the rear, the Coupe incorporates LED surface-emitting rear combination lights and a wide auxiliary brake light across the tailgate, all elegantly capped with a rear spoiler. Unique 20- and 22-inch alloy wheels further distinguish the Coupe model.
Both the GV80 SUV and Coupe are slated for release in 2024, with the SUV expected to arrive in the summer followed by the Coupe. Detailed specifications and pricing information will be made available closer to their respective launch dates. These updates represent Genesis’ commitment to delivering a refined and appealing lineup to cater to diverse consumer preferences.
