Genesis News: Genesis GV80 Leaks Out

Recommended Posts

Genesis has been having a hard time keeping the lid on the GV80 leaks lately. A day after someone leaked grainy pictures of the GV80 on Instagram, someone sent 4 pictures of the interior and exterior over to Car and Driver who published them for all the world to see.

The GV80 is Genesis' first entry into the hot SUV market and enters the segment currently occupied by the Mercedes Benz GLE, the Audi Q7, BMW X5, and Lincoln Aviator. It rides on the same rear wheel drive platform as the next generation G80 sedan due out next year. The main powerplant will be a 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 which in the G80 currently makes 365 horsepower, but could go up in this application. There's also the possibility of a turbo 4-cylinder or a naturally aspirated V6 as a base engine. 

It's said to have driver assistance systems similar to Telsa autopilot which would be a first for Genesis. 

For now, most of this is rumor and speculation as we wait for the official reveal next month. The GV80 is expected to go on sale Summer of 2020.

Big grille....narrow lights...kind of like the lighting.  Clean and minimal inside, looks like.   Interesting to hear it will be based on the RWD car platform, I had assumed they would have made a upmarket version of Palisade/Telluride.

Maybe it needs to seen without the “camo” but ugh, that does not look very good on first impressions. Hate leaked shots though because of shots like these. They never really make the cars look good at all. The front end resembles the XT6 in a bad way here. Decent interior it seems but the whole thing seems to be a swing and miss in the looks department.

The grille looks a bit nuts even by BMW big grille standards.  But rear wheel drive so off to a good start.

It’s not a dead on ringer, but one can’t help but notice (At least the grill anyway and the lights to a lesser extent). There have been far worse examples of riffing though.

I really like the looks both exterior and interior. Should do well for competition.

One does have to wonder how the guy checking out the inside of the GV80 does not see the guy behind the auto taking pictures.

I do have to wonder how they do not keep control on phones in the work place especially with a new product launch.

I was wondering when Genesis would have a CUV.  While RWD is generally a good thing, sales of this RWD GV80 may not be as healthy as Genesis hopes. 

The original SRX was RWD and sales were lackluster, at least compared to its FWD successor and the modern XT5.  BMW RWD CUVs do not outsell the Lexus FWD CUVs at all, after all these years.

Seems like they are targeting BMW and M-B specifically....Genesis sedans are RWD/AWD also.   Lexus' RX may be higher volume, but I wouldn't seriously compare it to the GLE or X5/X6...

Wow some comparison posts on here are WAY off.

Back-end not bad if not a bit bland, but the front end with that huge chrome G90-esque grille is hideous. Looks like this is going to be the theme for the Genesis line from now on.

      At an event is Seoul, South Korea yesterday, Genesis finally unveiled their new GV80 luxury SUV.  The overall look of the GV80 has been leaking out on the internet for months, but we finally get the full official release now.
      The interior and exterior of the GV80 is designed with a common thread to give a familial look with the G70, G80, and G90.  The GV80 introduces a new quad headlamp design that will eventually filter out to the other vehicles in the Genesis lineup. The crest grille first seen on the G90 is here too. The interior of the GV80 focuses on the "beauty of white space". The designed accentuated the width and space of the of the interior with wide horizontal lines and thin air vents.  In the center is a 14.5-inch split screen infotainment display. Genesis intentionally limited the number of hard buttons and switches for aesthetic reasons. The GV80 comes in either 5-seat or 7-seat models. On up-level models, soft materials cover every surface from the inside of door handles to quilted knee pads that line the lower sides of the console.  The transmission selector is a dial in the center console. The integrated controller can be operated by an onscreen keyboard or by handwritten letters. 
      Trips in the GV80 are designed to be stress-free. It gets equipped with a Road Active Noise Cancellation technology to reduce road noise. The system is one of the advanced and fast responding systems in the world. The electronically controlled suspension with road preview helps maintain a smooth ride by recognizing road imperfections ahead via a front camera.
      The GV80 is based on a unique new rear-wheel drive platform, while all-wheel drive is available.  In South Korea is till be equipped with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine while the U.S. will get a choice between two unspecified turbocharged engines. All-wheel drive models in the U.S. will be equipped with an electronic rear limited slip differential.
      There is a host of safety and driving assistance technologies in the GV80 including Smart Cruise Control with Machine Learning, Highway Driving Assist II, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind-Spot collision Avoidance Assist, Rear cross-traffic collision avoidance, and driver attention alert warning. In the event of a collision, there are 10 airbags, including a center mounted airbag between the front occupants. 
      The 2021 Genesis GV80 will go on sale in North America later this year.
