Improved Customer Safety and Convenience Features

Genesis has equipped the newly released GV80 and GV80 Coupe with advanced technologies to enhance convenience and safety, making the driving experience better from start to finish.


The temperature control can be adjusted independently for maximum comfort in four areas: the driver’s seat, passenger seat, and the second and third rows.


These cars come with various convenient features like Fingerprint Authentication System, UVC disinfection trays, heated armrests, front and rear touch-based handle sensors, and a fragrance system that spreads pleasant scents throughout the interior.

The latest features built for convenience, improve driving for a smooth, comfortable ride. A Digital Center Mirror (DCM) shows the rearview camera’s view. Hands-On Detection (HOD) lets you easily turn off ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) by touching the steering wheel.


The improved ADAS system combines various features that help the driver, like Lane Following Assist 2 (LFA 2), Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist 2 (FCA 2), Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA), Remote Smart Parking Assist 2 (RSPA 2), Smart Cruise Control (SCC), Front/Side/Rear Parking Distance Warning (PDW-F/S/R), and Front/Side/Rear Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist (PCA-F/S/R).
