2021 Genesis GV80 Luxury SUV Wears XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS ™ ‘Clear Bra’ with FUSION PLUS ™ Ceramic Coating and PRIME XR PLUS ™ Window Tint

The 2021 Genesis GV80 is the first SUV ever produced by the manufacturer. Genesis is a luxury brand for Hyundai and is still considered reasonably new compared to others. Yet, the Genesis GV80 has debuted to glowing praise from automotive media and consumers alike for its styling, comfort, and value. As a result, XPEL installation shops across the country are starting to see a new Genesis GV80 arriving to be fitted with paint protection film.

A new 2021 Genesis GV80 was treated at the XPEL install shop in Austin, Texas. Certified trained XPEL installers wrapped the GV80 with a full-front ULTIMATE PLUS ™ 'clear bra' paint protection film wrap. In addition, the client requested PPF on GV80's luggage rack, rocker panels, door cups, and door edge guards. These areas of a vehicle are prone to paint damage and scratches. Lastly, the SUV's side and rear glass were treated with PRIME XR PLUS ™ ceramic window tint for UV sun protection.

This GV80 luxury SUV is now protected by XPEL and ready to turn heads traveling down the road. The 2021 GV80 is significant, being the first SUV built by Genesis. Being the newest luxury vehicle brand, it needed to make a big splash in the cut-throat luxury SUV market. The 2021 Genesis GV80 impresses for less by being a proper luxury vehicle at a reasonable price. Features on the GV80 include Nappa leather seats, 14.5-inch touchscreen, and 22-inch wheels. The most expensive GV80 variant, the Prestige, starts at less than $75k and comes standard with features one typically pays more with German and Japanese competitors.

However, at the heart of the matter is the GV80’s 3.5-liter twin-turbo engine producing 375-horsepower. Powerful enough to reach zero to 60 mph in 5.3-seconds. The standard engine option is a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder making a healthy 250-hp. A 2.5-liter powered GV80 can reach 60 mph from a dead stop in under six and half seconds with fewer cylinders and one less turbo. The Genesis GV80 styling is also worth mentioning. It features Genesis's signature diamond-shaped grille and a new parallel double headlamp and taillight design. The profile of the SUV makes it appear as if it is traveling through space even when parked.

Car and Driver were so impressed with the 2021 Genesis GV80 that it earned an Editor's Choice Award. Meaning it is a vehicle they would recommend for quality, performance, and value.

ULTIMATE PLUS ™ Genesis Paint Protection Wrap

ULTIMATE PLUS ™ paint protection wrap is a transparent, durable film developed to protect surfaces against scratch marks, paint chips, and corrosion brought on by environmental contaminants. ULTIMATE PLUS ppf is virtually unnoticeable and leaves a high-gloss shine on wrapped surfaces. Our paint protection film 'self-healing' properties work with direct sunlight. Once exposed it can vanish away light paint damage like swirl marks and faint scratches.

XPEL offers paint protection wraps in a partial-front, full-front, or the entire vehicle. Certified installers can wrap any part of a vehicle's exterior based on your individual needs. ULTIMATE PLUS ™ ppf can also be applied to interiors and carbon fiber wings or diffusers.

PRIME XR PLUS ™ UV Protective Ceramic Window Tint

The sun in Texas is anything but a joke. With temperatures famously reaching triple digits in the summer, one should always be aware of the potential dangers. Long-term exposure to UV rays is one of the leading causes of skin cancer. PRIME XR PLUS ™ window tint works to block 99 percent of UV rays and deflect 98 percent of infrared heat.

Even at its darkest shade, XPEL window film will not disturb the clarity of people looking out. A benefit during nighttime driving. Tinted windows are almost a must-have in cities like Austin, Texas.
