The 4.9-meter Korean crossover is equipped with adaptive cruise control with automatic lane change on the highway, a central airbag between the driver and front passenger, four-zone climate control and active noise cancellation.
The Genesis G80 sedan is built on the same platform as the GV80. Its interior with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a multimedia system with a 14.5-inch monitor is almost identical to the interior of the crossover. Among the sedan's competitors are the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS.

Also available for the sedan is a diesel 2.2 with a capacity of 210 hp, and for a crossover - an in-line diesel "six" 3.0 with a return of 278 forces.
- The Russian cost of new products will be announced closer to the start of sales. In the home market, the GV80 rear-wheel-drive crossover with a turbodiesel costs at least 66.1 million won (3.9 million rubles), and for the G80 sedan - 55 million won (3.3 million rubles).
In mid-June 2020, a Russian car subscription service called Genesis Mobility will start operating. Initially, only the G70 sedans will be available, with the addition of the G80 and GV80 in the second half of the year. Last year, a similar service, Hyundai Mobility, was launched, but a separate mobile application will be developed for the premium brand. Delivery of Genesis cars by subscription will take place in the company showroom in Moscow City or they will be delivered to the specified address.
