2020 Genesis GV80 Configurator Goes Live, Time To Practice Your Korean

The GV80 can be equipped with everything from rear seat pillows to a dashcam.

Genesis unveiled the highly anticipated GV80 last night and now the company has launched a configurator for their first luxury crossover.

If you just can’t wait to build your perfect GV80, you can check it out here. That being said, there’s a bit of learning curve as the configurator is in Korean and doesn’t work with Google Translate.

If that hasn’t put you off, you can build away. The only engine available at the moment is the 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel that produces 274 hp (204 kW / 278 PS) and 434 lb-ft (589 Nm) of torque. Once you confirm that selection, you’ll be given options for rear- or all-wheel drive. The next step involves selecting between a five- and seven passenger seating configuration.

Once the basics are out of the way, then comes the fun part. Users can select between eight standard exterior colors or three optional hues that cost an extra ₩700,000 ($604). After the paint is selected, the configurator presents three wheel choices including standard 19-inchers and two optional wheels that measure 20- and 22-inches.

Moving into the cabin, there’s 11 different upholstery options. The model comes standard with black or white leather, but the Signature Design Selection seats are far more elegant as they feature diamond-quilted leather. Of course, they’re a tad pricey as they cost ₩3,000,000 ($2,589).

Users can also select between four different types of wood trim including Birch, Black Ash, Olive Ash and “Metallic Pore Filler Ash.” The latter appears to be a poor translation, but it’s a unique trim with a sand or rock-like appearance.

From there, you jump into the options and are presented choices for a head-up display and a “high tech package.” The latter includes a 12.3-inch 3D digital instrument cluster and adaptive headlights.

Buyers can also opt for a driving assistance package which adds augmented reality navigation, remote smart parking assistance and a surround view monitor. There’s also second row comfort package that adds heated (or power) second row seats with ventilation. The package also includes a tri-zone climate control system, rear seat pillows, rear seat mirrors and power sun blinds for the doors.

Other options include soft closing doors, adaptive cruise control and an 18-speaker Lexicon audio system. The model can also be equipped with an integrated dashcam and a panoramic sunroof.
