We recently shared exclusive information about the GV80 Coupe, like the addition of a new 27-inch OLED display for the interior to the use of the 3.5-liter Twin Turbo engine with electric supercharger. Today we have new pictures of the prototype testing caught by our friends at Shortscar. It is expected to be launched in January 2024.
What we know so far?
Main luxury brands such as Mercedes, BMW or Audi have several SUVs coupe on their line-ups, from the GLC Coupe (similar in size to the GV70) to Audi Q8, derivated from A8 (which is similar to G90) so it wouldn’t be a crazy idea if Genesis, that wants to fight against this luxury brands, launches someday a GV80 coupe.
Now it is confirmed. BMW was followed by Mercedes who be “inspired” from the bavarian carmaker to launch the GLE Coupe & GLC Coupe, and then by Audi with the Q8. Porsche already launched its Cayenne Coupe while BMW will launch the X8 large-suv. For the first time, a non-premium brand like Renault have released its first SUV-coupe model with the Arkana (also known as Renault Samsung XM3), which is already in Europe and clearly, a success.
Details of GV80 Facelift and GV80 Coupe Addition
But Genesis just arrived late to roll out their first SUVs (and this took a long time by the way) with a few more coming soon (like the GV60 EV SUV and recently confirmed large SUV to be named as GV90), so we need to wait a little bit, but at the end and as we said launching a coupe version of a SUV that is already developed wouldn’t be that hard after all.
Of course, we haven’t heard about Hyundai Motor Group’s SUV coupe development until now, however the SUV coupe seems to be an attractive model that will provide a significant impact on Genesis Motors expasion. According to our sources, the GV80 Coupe will have a more sloped front and rear glass angle. Would you buy a Genesis GV80 Coupe? Now and after we noticed that Genesis had this model planned on its product schedule, could be succesful?
