Genesis announced the debut of the new Genesis GV80January 11, 2020
Genesis Motors has just revealed two new video teasers for its first GV80 SUV. A video titled “Cosmonaut” and “Boy” also confirmed the official date of the premiere on January 15th.
The long-awaited three-row (affordable) GV80 will be the fourth Genesis model to join the G70, G80 and G90 sedans. Like its relatives, the GV80 will be based on a rear-wheel drive platform unique to the Genesis brand; four-wheel drive will be optional. The letter “V” in the GV80 brand represents the versatility that the Genesis SUV can offer.
“Over the past four years, Genesis has proven to be a respected luxury brand with excellent car quality and a line of best-in-class sedans with a charismatic and distinctive style,” said William Lee, Executive Vice President and Global Manager of Genesis. “With the release of the GV80, Genesis will raise expectations of excellence in the luxury SUV market.”
The first images of the GV80, which will soon complete with product information, give a complete picture of the first SUV developed by Genesis Design.
Signature Genesis design elements stand out clearly on the GV80. The Crest Grille grille is surrounded by high-tech Quad lights. The parabolic line is located smoothly along the side with an exact design, underlined by power lines above each wheel.
The interior was created very spacious, characteristic of the elegant South Korean architectural aesthetics. Minimalism is hidden in the details, with a commanding position of driving surrounded by highly mounted control surfaces. The center console carries a rotary electronic gearshift in the form of a gemstone, which provide an elegant balance of simplicity and chic.
The GV80, which is set to appear in 2020, will be sold on the domestic market in South Korea in January. More details will be provided closer to launch.
