Luxury got a facelift with the introduction of the GV80 — it maintains a reverence for timeless sophistication while bringing its own take on high-grade innovation to drivers across the country. You’ll experience its first-class atmosphere before you even step inside: Available 22-inch wheels, full LED quad headlights and a high-set grille contribute to the GV80 model’s formidable stance. But soon you’ll be embraced with metal accents, burled-wood trim and integrated ambient lighting, ensuring that your drive in the GV80 exceeds every expectation.

While both models have a generous supply of convenience, tech and safety features, if you’d like an SUV that does more than just meet the minimum you’ll want to drive the 2021 Genesis GV80. Its standard 2.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine produces better mpg ratings, as you can see from our chart, and unleashes 300 horsepower (compared to the standard 248 horsepower from the Audi Q7). Better efficiency and more power? Check. The GV80 also delivers high marks in convenience with its available power reclining, sliding and folding second-row seat with cushion tilt, a feature that can be accessed from the infotainment screen. Double check. And not only does the GV80 have a larger standard touchscreen and more available speakers, but it was honored as a IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ for 2021.
