Which GV80 is the Best?

The Genesis GV80 joins a crowded and competitive segment, but it looks to have the chops to take on the segment's best players. Any model is recommendable and well-equipped but we think the Advanced trim – especially in 2.5T trim – is an excellent value. Those with deeper pockets can get a more sublime and sophisticated luxury SUV. Genesis' standard 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty makes the GV80 all the more appealing. Find a Genesis GV80 for sale

Is the 2021 Genesis GV80 a Safe Car?

The new GV80 comes stocked with a full suite of active safety and driver-assistance systems. Included in its repertoire are lane-keeping assistance, blind-spot collision assist, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.

Optional are even more impressive systems. Blind-Spot View Monitor presents a live image in the digital instrument cluster of the GV80's left and ride sides when changing lanes. The Remote Smart Parking Assist enables the GV80 to pull in and out of tight parking spaces while you control the vehicle while you stand outside it. Another good-to-have feature is Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist (Rear) – essentially automatic emergency braking for when you're in reverse.
