Hyundai’s premium brand, Genesis, refreshed the GV80’s lineup for the 2025 model year after almost four years since the model’s introduction to the market in 2019.

The Korean automaker knew the premium segment could bring a higher profit margin than mass-market vehicles. Honda, Nissan, and Toyota did the same back in the ‘80s and ‘90s, creating the Acura, Infiniti, and Lexus, respectively. So, Hyundai followed the same recipe when it launched the Genesis brand in 2015. After introducing a few sedan vehicles, it went onto the SUV and crossover segment and made the mid-size GV80 that it unveiled in 2019. Fast forward to 2023, and the vehicle went through a well-deserved refresh that brought it a redesigned exterior and an upgraded interior.

At the front, the 2023 GV80 kept the same twin-headlight design language, where each headlamp housed an LED blade light. They flanked the massive, diamond-shaped grille that sported a rhomboidal pattern, similar to the one from the 2019 model year, but with a different styling. Furthermore, the bumper was redesigned and sported triangular side scoops and a flatter lower air intake that helped to cool the engine and the AC compressor. In addition, Genesis installed a skid plate below the apron that mimicked an aluminum underbody shield, specific for off-road vehicles.

From its sides, the refreshed 2025 GV80 featured new trims for the front fenders’ fake vents that featured turn signals. Still, the sculptured doors remained the same, and the same went with the rear quarter panels, enlarged over the wheels, like shoulders. Finally, at the back, the automaker created a new bumper, where chromed trims adorned the corners and were extended by red strips. Lower, on the apron, the automaker added two chromed elements and V-shaped trims surroundings for the side-mounted tailpipes that resembled the diamond-shaped grille.

Inside, the most significant difference was on the dashboard. The 2025 GV80 received a 27-inch OLED screen mounted atop the redesigned dashboard. This new unit replaced the system used on the 2019 model that featured a 12.3-inch display for the instrument cluster and another 14.5-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system. The leather-wrapped interior offered customers a set of heated and ventilated front bucket seats and a bench seat for three in the rear, where the outboard seats could provide warm or cold air. Another significant difference was for the audio system, which featured a Bang&Olufsen unit instead of the previously used Lexicon. Both brands are owned by Harman International, which is an independent subsidiary of Samsung.

Under the hood, the base version of the 2025 GV80 came equipped with a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-four that sent its power in all corners via an eight-speed automatic transmission. As an option, customers could get a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6.
