Genesis GV80 2023

Despite offering some compelling products, Genesis has failed to make much headway in the Canadian market. About 1500 GV80s were sold in 2022, about the same as for 2021.

Constructed on a rear-wheel drive biased platform shared with the G80, the GV80 can be powered by either a 2.5L turbo four or a 3.5L-V6 turbo. Driven briefly, the V6 in the GV80 delivered vivid acceleration in near silence unless pushed hard, when it emits a compelling, cultured wail. The automatic transmission just gets the job done without calling attention to itself. Both the V6 and 2L engines require premium fuel. Steering is nicely weighted and precise and inspires confidence. Handling is steady, even though drivers can sense they are driving a very big and heavy vehicle. The ride is generally good but can allow more than typical vertical movement on rough roads.

Elegant exterior styling that elicits favourable comment of how much the GV80 could be a Bentley. The cabin of the GV80 is sumptuous, especially on premium versions with butter-sof leather, matte-finished wood and tasteful alloy accents. The cabin in roomy and seats are large and comfortable. The four-cylinder variants welcome five, but there is a third-row seat offered on the V6 models.

Like Tesla, Genesis vehicles are sold on a fixed-price basis including delivery. The base 2.5T Advanced trim, with a dual-panel sunroof, heated front and rear seats, L.E.D. headlights and leather seating, is nicely equipped. Opting for the V6 on the Advanced trim will set you back $6500. The third-row seat on the V6 Advanced trim will cost you $2000. Migrating up to the the 3.5T Prestige adds Nappa process leather, a Lexicon-branded audio system, soft-close doors, a microfibre headliner, a 16-way driver’s seat, power folding second-row seats and self-parking, but looks overpriced.

Above average reliability is predicted for both the conventional and hybrid models. Unlike European-branded competitors, the RX can be bought for the long term rather than just leased for four years.
