The GV80 is a midsized SUV from Hyundai's luxury brand, Genesis, and by the way it drives it holds its own against some esteemed competitors.
It's quick, quiet, beautifully appointed, and enjoyable to drive.
The standard engine is a 2.5-liter turbo four-cylinder, and the uplevel engine is a punchy 3.5-liter turbo V6.
The latter delivers effortless power, but it's not fuel-efficient.
Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are available.
The GV80 has sharp steering and feels taut and agile through corners, yet the ride is comfortable and composed.
The interior is finely crafted, but the infotainment system's controller dial is rather tricky to use.
A third-row seat is available, but it's tiny.
Standard active safety features include FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, and RCTW with rear automatic braking.
