The Performance Comparison

If it’s important that your next vehicle hold its own whether you’re battling rush-hour traffic or soaring over an open highway, you’ll be interested to know the GV80 lets you choose between two engines. As a result, you can pinpoint the piece of machinery that best matches your lifestyle, priorities, and preferences.

The one that comes standard is a 2.5L Turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine that can produce up to 300 horsepower. The available 3.5L Twin Turbocharged V6 engine is even more impressive by generating as much as 375 horsepower. While it comes close, the maximum 335 horsepower you’ll get out of the 3.0L engine that propels the X5 simply falls short.

The moment you and your passengers take your seats inside the Genesis GV80, you’ll all notice there’s an abundance of space at your disposal.
