2022 Genesis GV80 price and specs Revealed

Author: |

Since coming on sale in Australia in late 2020, the Genesis GV80 has received its first minor upgrade. For the first time, the Genesis GV80 big luxury SUV has been introduced for Australia, and it boasts a new premium six-seat option.

The GV80, the reigning 2021 Drive Car of the Year winner for Large Luxury SUVs, has had price increases across the board, but specs have also been tweaked.

The 380mm four-piston monoblock front brake calipers, intelligent speed limit assistance, and Recirculation Plus setting in the climate control menu are now standard on the 2022 Genesis GV80.

The $10,500 Luxury Pack adds soft-close doors, a 12.3-inch TFT-LCD instrument cluster, quilted Nappa leather, and improved headlamps to the list of safety, technology, and convenience features.

The new six-seat Luxury Pack costs an extra $13,500 and replaces the second-row middle seat with a center console, twin 9.2-inch entertainment displays, second-row wireless phone charging, and additional ambient lighting, in addition to the items of the basic Luxury Package.

The most costly and largest product from Hyundai's premium division will keep the same blend of petrol and diesel engines, with rear- or all-wheel-drive options.

The GV80 is still available in four different versions, each with its own set of engines and drivetrains. Previously, these grades only had one Luxury Pack option, but now three of them include the more costly '6-Seat Luxury Package' option. In the entry-level Genesis GV80, a 2.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine with 300 horsepower and 422Nm is offered with rear-wheel drive.

Larger turbocharged petrol and diesel engines are available, with a 3.0-liter inline-six diesel engine producing 273 horsepower and 588Nm and a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter petrol V6 producing 374 hp and 530Nm. Both of these variants are all-wheel-drive and include more standard amenities.
