Genesis GV80 isn't far pricier than the Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy from Genesis' parent brand. Built on the same platform as the 3rd-gen Genesis G80, the GV80 shares the two petrol engines with the G80, while an inline-6 diesel is also available. Unlike most crossovers in the segment, the GV80 is based on a RWD platform and is available with RWD drivetrain layout for all engine options.

Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The GV80 has impressed us in many ways. But for a slightly fidgety ride, we found it hugely appealing. And buying one is no compromise – as a first time offering in the UK, Genesis deserves huge praise for delivering such a competitive car. At 4,945mm long it sits between the BMW X5 and Audi Q7.
Genesis' new GV80 is priced to strike fear in the heart of today's premium SUV market. The 2.5-liter inline-four featured here has lots to offer -- not the least of which is its 300 horsepower. The 8-speed automatic shifts crisply and obsequiously and I'd ballpark a 0-to-60-mph time of 6.5 seconds.
The 2021 Genesis GV80 is arguably the most important vehicle in Genesis' lineup. The base 2.5-liter inline-four engine puts out a healthy 300 horsepower and 311 pound-feet of torque. Genesis' infotainment system works perfectly well, and the interior is top-notch.
The Genesis GV80 isn't just Genesis' first SUV, it's the parent company's first unibody crossover built on rear-wheel-drive architecture. The cockpit is swathed in all manner of upscale materials and finishes. Space behind the second row is a more substantial 33.9 cubes, and if you fold all the seats behind the front row you're looking at 84 cubic feet.
The 2021 Genesis GV80 is the Korean automaker's first SUV of its own. The interior manages to impress even more than the exterior does. There's plenty of throttle and brake modulation on offer for serene, dip-free starts and stops. Fuel economy is competitive, but outside of that bubble, it's not really all that.
