Are you thinking about one of our exciting Genesis SUV models? Your daydreams likely include the 2023 Genesis GV70 or the 2023 Genesis GV80. The Genesis GV80 was the first of the Genesis SUVs and gave drivers all the performance and luxury synonymous with the brand name. The 2023 GV80 boasts a 300-horsepower engine, a cabin loaded with luxury appointments and competitive fuel economy. Not to mention, the 2022 Genesis GV80 also received IIHS Top Safety Pick+1 recognition.

The 2023 Genesis GV80 has the most cargo space of Genesis SUV models, offering 84 cubic feet of room at a maximum. This isn't to say the alternatives lack in luxury, as they have everything you need all rolled into a compact SUV. The 2023 Genesis GV70 has 56.9 cubic feet.

When comparing the models in the Genesis SUV lineup, you will notice the Genesis GV70 and Genesis GV80 both have all-wheel drive as an option. However, the Genesis GV70 has it as a standard feature on each trim, while the Genesis GV80 has rear-wheel drive on its base model. The higher trim levels will come with the all-wheel-drive drivetrain, and you can choose to add an available electronic limited-slip differential for optimal grip, no matter the road conditions. However, if you select the new electric Genesis GV60, you'll get standard all-wheel drive.

The Genesis GV70 is the second-smallest of the available Genesis SUV models, and it will carry up to five passengers. It is the perfect specimen of athletic elegance - made to help drivers learn to love being on the road again, perhaps with their family in tow. This compact SUV is ready to zip through city streets in style as it makes a statement with every turn it takes.


You can have either five or seven passengers in the Genesis GV80, depending upon which trim and options you choose. If you decide to go with the Genesis GV80 3.5T V-6 AWD, then you can determine what seating arrangement you would like, and the advanced safety features will help keep you safe no matter where you choose to go.

The lineup of new Genesis SUVs has continued to expand with the addition of the Genesis GV60 for the 2023 model year. There is at least one more to come, and many speculate that the Genesis GV90 will be the next model to join this prestigious group. As these new models begin to hit the market, it will be a waiting game for more luxury SUVs to appear.

The Genesis SUVs pack a serious punch as they offer 300 to 375 horsepower, depending upon which model and trim level you choose. Power will be in the palms of your hands the moment you take the wheel as you feel the engine purr when you press down on the throttle.
