- the 2022 genesis gv80 adds a new trim level called the prestige signature.
- it's a four-seater with second-row captain's chairs that are heated, cooled, and power-adjustable.
- only 600 units will come to the u.s. and this model costs $78,295.
if you're the type to be chauffeured in your genesis gv80—or even if you just want to treat your kids to an ultra-luxurious back seat—then the new prestige signature model is your ticket. this new version of the mid-size luxury suv comes with a four-seat layout that includes fancy rear-seat captain's chairs that are heated, cooled, and power-adjustable. it costs $78,295—$4500 more than a loaded gv80 3.5t prestige—and only 600 units will come to the u.s.
genesis hasn't yet released a photo of exactly what the rear thrones will look like in the u.s. version, but we assume they'll be similar to the setup available in the global gv80 (pictured below).
the gv80 prestige signature also looks a bit different thanks to its 22-inch 10-spoke wheels and matte paint. it's available in just two color combinations: matte grey with a black interior or matte white with a blue and beige interior.
this genesis isn't cheap, but it's a relative bargain compared to other luxury suvs on the market that offer similar four-seat setups. the lexus lx600's new ultra luxury model starts north of $120,000, while the mercedes-maybach gls tops $160,000. volvo previously offered an excellence version of the xc90 but discontinued that trim in the u.s. a few years ago.
the standard 2022 gv80 is still offered as a five-seat two-row model or a seven-seat three-row model if you opt for the $69,095 3.5t awd advanced+ configuration. pricing starts at $51,295 for a base 2.5t rwd model.
