2025 Genesis GV80 Coupe

Late this Tuesday, Genesis offered an initial glimpse into its rejuvenated GV80 lineup, incorporating a newly designed coupe-style model designated as the GV80 Coupe.

The unveiling transpired in South Korea at the exclusive Genesis Suji showroom, where the public will have the opportunity to view these vehicles starting from October 7.

Overview of Genesis GV80

Although Genesis has not specified the commencement date for sales, it is anticipated that both the refreshed GV80 and the novel GV80 Coupe will be available in U.S. dealerships next year as 2025 editions. Furthermore, Genesis is in the development phase for an SUV that is slated to be larger than the GV80 and could also be introduced next year.

The GV80 has proven to be a commercial success for Genesis, boasting global sales exceeding 170,000 units since its initial launch in early 2020. In light of this success, the alterations made to the mid-size SUV’s design have been relatively understated.

Features of the 2025 Genesis GV80 Coupe

The modifications encompass a reconfigured grille, updated lighting components, and a revamped front fascia featuring enlarged air intakes and a skid plate. The vehicle’s side profile is highlighted by an abundant use of chrome detailing. In the rear, the exhaust outlets are concealed in the standard GV80 while remaining visible in the GV80 Coupe. New wheel designs and color options have also been introduced.

Although the interior has not been revealed, Genesis indicates that the pre-existing dashboard—previously featuring separate screens for the digital instrument cluster and the infotainment system—has been supplanted by a 27-inch integrated display for both functions.

Additional elements such as the pedals, wireless mobile phone charging pad, cup holders, and gear shifter have undergone design enhancements. The shifter, according to Genesis, now showcases a crystalline aesthetic. A selection of five interior color schemes is available, complemented by premium materials like leather, aluminum, and genuine wood.

As for the powertrain, no alterations have been implemented. The revamped GV80 continues to offer a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 300 hp or a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine with 375 hp. The GV80 Coupe introduces a third option that includes an electric compressor paired with the twin-turbo V-6, increasing output to 408 hp.

Unique Characteristics of the GV80 Coupe

Long employed by Genesis’ German competitors, the electric compressor enhances boost pressure in a turbocharged engine until the conventional exhaust-driven turbo activates, effectively mitigating turbo lag and thereby improving low-rev engine responsiveness.

Distinctive to the GV80 Coupe are several features accentuating the vehicle’s sporty demeanor. These consist of a sound generator capable of mimicking the exhaust note of a high-displacement sports car, along with a Flex Brake feature that allows for adjustable brake pedal responsiveness.

For those choosing the top-tier powertrain that includes the electric compressor, the GV80 Coupe offers Launch Control, a Sports+ driving mode, and an instrument cluster screen displaying metrics such as oil temperature, torque, and turbo pressure.

Specific details concerning the U.S. market will be disseminated at a future date.

Honestly, I thought they would’ve upgraded the powertrains of the standard GV80 given the success. Guess if it aint broke, don’t fix it.

So they hid the exhaust tips on the regular GV80 but not on the coupe? Interesting choice.
