The luxurious 2023 GV80 has propelled the Genesis brand to the top of luxury-SUV wish lists.
How are we aware? Because when people stop to inquire whether it is a Hyundai, they now inquire whether it is a Bentley.
The available engines range from a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 300 horsepower to a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 375 horsepower.
The GV80's 60 mph pace with the turbo four was slower at 6.1 seconds, but many drivers won't miss the extra power.
A wide, slim-shaped infotainment display keeps things upmarket but uncomplicated inside the GV80. The cabin is tastefully completed with burled-wood trim, metal accents, and integrated ambient lighting.
