Genesis simply unveiled its refreshed GV80 SUV (pictured above) in South Korea, and together with it, the manufacturing model of the GV80 Coupe that we first noticed as an idea in April of this yr. Beginning with the standard model, the GV80 wears a redrawn Crest grille that is narrower and wider, ringed by a brand new line of chrome trim. Beneath that, the central consumption’s been inverted, so as a substitute of forming an elongated “U,” it kinds an elongated “A” underlined by a shiny fake skid plate. The vents on the corners have been opened up and crammed with mesh as a substitute of being largely lined with a body-colored panel as on the present mannequin. Two new wheel designs are available in 20- and 22-inch diameters. Out again, the exhaust ideas have disappeared, the undisturbed decrease bumper mentioned to “elevate the GV80’s sophistication” — a notion the shiny and matte Storr Inexperienced exterior colours may also contribute to.
Inside, the previously separate digital instrument cluster and infotainment touchscreen have been mixed right into a single 27-inch OLED show. Forward of it, a three-spoke steering wheel centered round a tidy, stitched-leather hub replaces the single-bar wheel we have now now. To the suitable, a extra unified console design with a waterfall-like trim piece descends from the multimedia buttons and HVAC panel — with knobs for the audio quantity and the local weather management temperature! — onto a central tunnel boasting a redesigned wi-fi charging pad. The brand new pad association leaves the telephone extra seen than within the present GV80 and makes room for bigger cupholders. Second-row passengers can take within the sights on the rear home windows or on the rear leisure screens, every display a 14.6-inch unit suspended from the entrance seatbacks. Or they’ll admire the expanded vary of inside coloration remedies that embrace the hues Bordeaux Brown, Earth Brown, and Glacier White.
Over on the coupe, you would be exhausting pressed to inform it from the boxy GV80 from the entrance. Look carefully, although, and you may see a bunch of 4 vents underneath the crest grille, and the chrome bars within the decrease aspect intakes sit a bit greater up on the coupe than on the standard SUV. The profile view is unmistakable and does not stray removed from the idea; the scalloped decrease doorways and black garnish across the hem that we noticed on the New York present automotive are gone, however the change does not rob the coupe of any drama. In again, the channeled hatch spoiler and decrease ducktail spoiler dwell to see manufacturing, the full-width gentle bar doesn’t. The coupe was additionally launched with its personal wheel designs and the unique coloration Bering Blue.
The GV80 Coupe inside differs by having a barely totally different two-tone and stitching patterns on its flat-bottom steering wheel, metal-look pedals, and totally different out there inside colours.
The coupe additionally will get a racier engine alternative. The present turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder making 300 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque carries over, as does the twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 with 375 hp and 391 lb-ft. Within the coupe, consumers can decide for a similar high-output 3.5-liter supplied with the G90 sedan, an electrical supercharger turning the wick as much as 409 hp and 405 lb-ft. Coupe drivers can profit from that with an unique Sport+ driving mode, adjustable brake pedal really feel, and an exhaust enhancement system mentioned to imitate the emanations of a “large-displacement sports activities coupe’s exhaust.”
U.S. spec for the GV80 and GV80 Coupe should not be far-off. The 2023 GV80 begins at almost $59,000.
