It’s been a few years since our first Road Test of the Genesis GV80– back when it was the brand’s first and only SUV. While that’s certainly not the case these days, the GV80 still remains a highlight; so, we’re happily visiting it once more.

Our original test was studded with words like “lavish,” “indulgent” and “elegant;” and that glass slipper still fits. The Prestige Signature trim takes luxury to the GV80’s highest point, including Nappa Leather seating surfaces and plenty of tech, like a 14.5-inch infotainment screen and fully digital instrument cluster.

The visually-pleasing body has been tweaked over the years, but overall remains the same. Though 2025 will see a new coupe body style that we can’t wait to drive.

And speaking of driving, the GV80 is as dream-like on the road as we remember. The eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive layout is standard; joined here by optional electronically controlled suspension. Under the hood is an available 3.5-liter V6, twin-turbocharged for 375 horsepower. A 300-horsepower 2.5-liter turbo-four is standard, should you feel the extra performance isn’t worth the extra dough.

Expect a starting price of $60,000 for the 2024 Genesis GV80, working up to roughly $80,000 for a 3.5T-powered Prestige Signature.

Like before, yes, the Genesis GV80 does command a higher premium, but dishes out a properly indulgent experience. That’s what the luxury buyer demands and what the GV80 does so, so well.

And we’ll have more Quick Spins…soon!
