The 2023 Genesis GV60 is a five-passenger electric crossover made in two trims: Advanced and Performance. Both have two electric motors (one per axle), enabling all-wheel drive capability. The Advanced generates 314 horsepower and 446 lb.-ft. of torque, while the Performance produces 429 hp (483 hp in Boost mode) and 516 lb.-ft. of torque. The Advanced is rated to travel up to 248 miles on a single charge, which according to the EPA translates to 103 MPGe in the city and 86 MPGe on the highway (MPGe stands for miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent). Meanwhile, the Performance has a total electric range of 235 miles, or 97 MPGe city/82 MPGe highway.
When it’s plugged in to a 350 kW DC fast charger, the GV80 can gain 60 miles of range in just five minutes or go from a 10 to 80 percent charge in as little as 18 minutes. As another example of Genesis’s forward thinking, the GV60 is equipped with a special Relaxation Mode that will recline the driver’s seat to enhance comfort while the vehicle is being charged.
Genesis outfits the exterior of the GV60 Advanced trim with specialty items such as a hands-free liftgate, a tinted fixed-glass “Vision Roof,” and sleek power-retractable door handles. It also has proximity keyless entry, power-folding side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, roof rails, and 20-inch wheels. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, you’ll be able to access and start the vehicle using the sophisticated fingerprint and facial recognition (Face Connect) systems.
Inside, the Advanced features push-button ignition, a synthetic-leather upper instrument panel, a heated power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, automatic climate control (two zones), a head-up display, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and manually operated rear-door sunshades. Its seats are upholstered in genuine leather, and in the front row, they’re also power-adjustable, heated, and ventilated. The indulgent driver’s seat comes with a power cushion extender, too, enhancing comfort on even the longest drives.
Infotainment is contained within the 12.3-inch central touchscreen, which manages navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, and a 17-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system. Wireless device charging comes standard as well, along with multiple USB ports and access to Genesis Connected Services.
Genesis packs in a full array of cutting-edge driving aids, starting with forward collision-avoidance assist, automatic high beams, lane-keeping assist, lane-following assist, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, adaptive cruise control, parking collision-avoidance assist, and driver attention warning. It also has highway driving assist, intelligent speed limit assist, a blind-spot view monitor, a surround-view monitor, Remote Smart Parking Assist, advanced rear occupant alert, and safe exit assist.
The Performance upgrade is treated to finer Nappa leather seats, microfiber suede linings, an Ergo-motion driver’s seat with a power bolster, heated rear seats, alloy sport pedals, and 21-inch wheels. Not only that, but it also comes with Genesis Digital Key 2, allowing you to access and start the GV60 via smartphone.
