Photo spies managed to photograph a novelty on the roads of South Korea. Despite the dense layer of camouflage, we managed to see some interesting details.

The Korean premium car manufacturer Genesis is actively working on its lineup. a new crossover GV70 was spotted on the roads. The car has already been seen before, but this modification has clear differences. It is possible that we are talking about the version with the Sport prefix.

This Genesis GV70 prototype has a different grille design, large 20-inch wheels with original design, as well as more massive exhaust pipes. It has already been announced that the standard version of the Genesis GV70 will receive three different powerplant options – they will be 2.5- and 3.5-liter gasoline engines, as well as a 2.2-liter diesel power unit. The output of the 3.5-liter engine will be 380 hp.

It is possible that such a motor will only receive a modification with the Sport prefix.

The powertrain has not yet been officially confirmed, but there is little doubt that an 8-automatic transmission will be used, as in the vast majority of Genesis and Hyundai models. Genesis has already announced that an electric version of the Genesis GV70 will also appear in the future, but nothing is said about the timing.

Meanwhile, the new Genesis G90 sedan was first spotted in test trials. The main feature of the novelty will be the presence of an autopilot of the 3rd level. According to Genesis representatives, in terms of its level, it will be able to compete with the best Tesla cars in this regard.
