Genesis’ flagship SUV is getting an even more luxurious interior configuration.

    The 2022 Genesis GV80 is available to order now with a six-seat option, when equipped with all-wheel drive.

    The 6-seat Luxury package costs $13,500 and also includes all the features of the carryover Luxury Package, which costs $10,500.

    This includes a fixed centre armrest and dual 9.2-inch entertainment touchscreens, as previously seen in the related G80 sedan.

    The armrest includes a wireless phone charger, two cupholders, a storage space, and a rotary controller.

    The rear of the cabin has also been blessed with additional ambient lighting, while the individual bucket seats have a one-touch rest mode and wing-type headrests.

    Both the new package and the existing Luxury Package also receive a new 18-way power front passenger seat with massaging functionality, like the driver’s seat.

    There have been additional changes across the GV80 range. All models feature a new Intelligent Speed Limit Assist function, plus Recirculation Mode Plus which uses navigation information to prevent unwanted odours and emissions from leeching into the cabin.

    All GV80 models feature the upgraded front brakes with 380mm discs and four-piston calipers that were previously exclusive to the flagship 3.5T.

    Other tweaks include updated graphics for the augmented reality navigation mode, the addition of unlock buttons to the rear doors, and a new triangle icon in the mirrors for the blind-spot assist system.

    The second-row cupholders in five/seven-seat versions are now mounted within the armrest, which also scores an additional storage compartment.

    A new gloss Barossa Burgundy paint finish is now available, with the GV80 available in a total of seven gloss shades plus three matte finishes exclusive to models with the Luxury Package.
