After weeks of teasing teasers and spy photos, the premium sub-brand Hyundai Motor has finally officially unveiled its first Genesis GV80 crossover.

The novelty got a branded radiator grill, high-tech headlights Quad Lamps and a distinctive body shape: a pair of sharp lines running along the doors and extending to the sides of the car. 22-inch wheels complement the stylish appearance of a luxury crossover.

In the manufacture of many body parts (for example, the hood and doors), the manufacturer used ultralight and yet durable aluminum.

The brand tried to maintain its loyalty to the concept when working on the interior.

For silence in the cabin is the active noise reduction system.
