Genesis unveiled the GV80 partial change model and the Genesis first coupe-type SUV ‘GV80 Coupe’. The newly reborn GV80 partial change model in about 3 years and 9 months has greatly upgraded its design finish, and the GV80 Coupe features a more dynamic design and a sporty sensibility. We focused on the design of the GV80 partial change model and the GV80 coupe.

The GV80 is the first model to showcase a design element that completes Genesis’s unique value, such as a crescrest grille that embodies the Genesis brand emblem, a two-line headlamps, a parabolic line that emphasizes the elegant proportions and silhouettes on the sides, and a G-Matrix pattern that expresses the reflection of light in diamonds. Since then, from sedans like the G80 and G90 to SUVs like the GV60 and GV70, the charm of the Genesis design identity of ‘Athletic Elegance’ has gradually intensified with each new model.

The GV80 has undergone a partial change in about 3 years and 9 months, inheriting the dynamic and sleek design of the existing GV80, while completing a relaxed interior space with a modern sensibility. The GV80 Coupe is also the Genesis’ first coupe-type SUV to maximize dynamism, featuring bold and unparalleled styling. We focused on the changes in the newly refurbished GV80 partial change model inside and outside, and looked at the special charm of the GV80 Coupe, which emphasizes the dynamic boldness.

The GV80 partial change model is characterized by adding luxurious details to the existing high-quality design. The first part to look at is the front part that has greatly changed the atmosphere by touching it in detail. By inheriting the technology of MLA (Micro Lens Array, a technology that reduces the existing projection unit module based on ultra-precision manufacturing technology) technology, which was first applied to the G90, the Genesis flagship sedan, to strengthen the Genesis design identity of ‘Two Line’ design, while building a unified design for the brand as a whole.

In addition, the GV80 partial change model redesigns the G-Matrix pattern of the radiator grille in two rows while gently trimming the edges of the grille to emphasize sophisticated charm and gorgeous look. Meanwhile, there’s also a new skid plate at the bottom of the front bumper that emphasizes the SUV-like solid impression. In addition, the bumper shape with air intake and air curtains is more dynamic, perfecting the atmosphere of a hard, bold sports SUV.

The rear part was changed around the bottom of the bumper while maintaining the existing high-quality design. Instead of exposing the muffler at the bottom, we applied a hidden type muffler, and the V shape inspired by the design of the Genesis Crest grille is chrome to complete the future-looking image. In the era of electrification, the rear diffuser design that contains the eco-friendly value pursued by Genesis is applied.

The Genesis’ first GV80 Coupe highlights the profound appeal of a luxury SUV with a dynamic elegance and a bold silhouette. Compared to the GV80 partial change model, the GV80 Coupe is even more appealing. The MLA lamp technology is used to enhance the completeness of the two-line lamp design, but the GV80 Coupe double-stamped the G-Matrix pattern of the radiator grille to highlight the high-performance image. A Double Layered G-Matrix pattern introduced through the GV80 Coupe Concept Car. It also widens the area of the air inlet at the bottom of the bumper, and applies four sports-inspired slots to the bottom of the radiator grille to complete a bold and dynamic appeal.

The difference between the GV80 partial change model and the GV80 coupe is the silhouette from the side. Genesis has established a design philosophy centered on proportions to complete the paradoxical contrast of dynamic elegance. This embodies a beautiful proportion of design that sets it apart from any other luxury brand, and gives it a persperation that maintains its aesthetics over time.

Backed by this philosophy, the GV80 completes a design with a ratio that sets it apart from its competitors’ luxury SUVs. Even after the partial changes, the proportions that complete the dynamic elegance of the GV80, the parabolic line, and the design elements of the C-pillar, which are as straight and strongly stretched like a hockey stick, have been followed. The bottom chrome line, which runs from the front bumper to the rear, completes the powerful character and voluminous profile of the GV80 sub-change model.

The GV80 Coupe boasts a silhouette that fully emphasizes the opposite charm of dynamic elegance. The smooth loopline after the B-pillar boasts the sleek curves of the sports coupe, with the trunk lead end raised to maintain a tense tension. The GV80 Coupe has an invisibly unobtrusive plush type roof rack for a clean roofline. At the end of the elegantly flowing sidewindow molding, driven by the roofline, two rows of ganisi with a Genesis design identity are in place. The GV80 partial change model uses glossy chrome material, while the Coupe model uses dark chrome anis, while the GV80 partial change model uses a glossy chrome chrome material.

The GV80 is characterized by ▲ an exterior that adds luxury details to the elegance and style of the existing car ▲ a built-in that adds a high-tech sensibility to the ‘the beauty of the margin’ ▲ safety and convenience that provides a comfortable driving experience.

On this day, Genesys also unveiled the brand’s first coupe-type SUV, the GV80 Coupe.
