Canadian International AutoShow: The Genesis GV80 Coupe Makes its Canadian Debut

Genesis returns to the Canadian International AutoShow with four models, including the Canadian premiere of the GV80 Coupe.

  • This model is a sportier version of the existing GV80 SUV.

  • The automaker also showcases three other models in Toronto.

  • This marks the return of Genesis to the Canadian International AutoShow.

The newly unveiled Genesis GV80 Coupe makes its Canadian debut at the Canadian International AutoShow, held in Toronto from February 16 to 25th.

As its name suggests, this new model is a coupe-like version of the current GV80 which features a more dynamic and distinctive design.

While it features most of the same equipment and trim as the regular GV80, the GV80 Coupe benefits from a few unique characteristics, such as exclusive 22-inch alloy wheels.

To back up its sportier appearance, the Genesis GV80 Coupe can only be equipped with the most powerful of the two powertrains offered in the regular version of the large SUV.

This means that every GV80 Coupe will feature a 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 engine that uses a 48-volt electric supercharger to deliver 409 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque, from as low as 1,300 RPM.

Along with this new model, Genesis will showcase three other vehicles at the Canadian International AutoShow.

First is the 2024 GV60, which is the brand’s first electric vehicle and its only one to not also be offered with a gasoline engine option. The automaker says this model features a maximum range of 399 kilometres on a full charge.

The 2024 Genesis Electrified GV70 is a fully electric version of the gasoline-powered GV70 compact SUV. Since this model has been on sale in Canada for a while already, visitors to the AutoShow will be able to test drive it on the facility’s indoor EV test track.

Finally, the fourth model to occupy the Genesis booth in Toronto is the 2024 G70 sedan. This model has received interior updates and new standard performance features for the current model year.

The 2024 Canadian International AutoShow takes place from February 16 to the 25th at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre.
