Genesis GV70 SUV Unveiled
The Genesis GV70 SUV is the second luxury SUV of the brand which is located worldwide below the GV80. Genesis, the luxurious brand of Hyundai that adopts the same models as brands such as Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Jaguar as well as Infiniti, is for those who do not know.
The rise to the European launch of Genesis continues with its latest model – the Genesis GV70 SUV. Genesis’s current GV70, Genesis’ 5th G70, G80, and G90 and GV80 SUV – will be going off in the forthcoming, mid-sized luxury SUV segment with the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC.
Hyundai’s luxury weapon, Genesis, released in 2015 as a standalone brand, is based on an optional all-wheel-drive architecture like the U.S. and its native Korea. The new GV70 is no exception.
As such, Genesis is set to be one of the main models in the launch of the European business, originally for this year but only after the recent Genesis meeting, and a former Audi Sales Manager, Dominique Boeschto, started to bring a senior executive team together to oversee the launch.
However, the GV70 is yet to be supported with more technical information for the new SUV, while motors are likely to mimic the Genesis GV70 that has been recently upgraded and include a 245hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline and a 2.2-liter diesel of 196hp. Sources suggest that the GV70 shares the bulk of its support with the Hyundai Tucson SUV recently unveiled in 2021.
Official images from the new GV70 show an exterior style popular for the larger GV80 SUV and an interior that borrows a lot from the G70. There will be two models, a regular edition and a Sport variant, and both will be introduced at the revelation of the car.
According to Hyundai’s strategy 2025, the first all-electric Genesis is also expected next year with more to come from 2024.
In July 2019 we showed that to escape high import duties on fully installed imported units, Hyundai assessed the market launch of the GENESIS brand in India. The GV70 will come with an option for RHD and could be one of the first models of this brand to come into India, which will be based on Tucson’s platform and European launch plans. Genesis has registered for its electric vehicles in India a long listing of trademarks, but the brand has yet to reveal an electric vehicle worldwide.
