Following the refreshed Hyundai Ioniq 5’s launch in March, other Korean auto giants are gearing up to reveal updated versions of their electric vehicles. Among them are the Kia EV6 and the Genesis GV60, all based on the E-GMP architecture.

While the heavily disguised GV60 prototype hints at significant design changes, in reality, these updates will be rather minor. Instead, anticipate slight design tweaks, a larger battery, and technological enhancements.

Three years after its debut, the Genesis GV60 is due for a refresh to maintain its relevance in the market. The typical changes include subtle alterations to the front and rear designs, revamped bumpers, and updated lighting signatures. Despite the camouflage suggesting otherwise, the refreshed GV60 retains its core design elements.

Expect minor alterations to the exterior, with the new model remaining largely indistinguishable from its predecessor. The headlights feature slight modifications, while the rear spoiler appears to sport a revised light strip.

Inside the cabin, finer materials and upgraded equipment are likely, although significant changes are unlikely, given the GV60’s recent adoption of the new cockpit design standard across Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis vehicles. The facelifted model is expected to integrate Hyundai’s next-generation infotainment system, offering wireless connectivity and over-the-air software updates.

Performance-wise, the facelifted GV60 is set to receive a larger 84 kWh battery pack, improving its range over the current model’s EPA estimate. Additionally, it will adopt the Active Air Skirt system for enhanced aerodynamic efficiency. The refreshed GV60 is slated for release in the coming months in Korea, with a US debut anticipated for the 2025 model year.
