Automobile Corporation Hyundai has started testing a new premium crossover Genesis GV80. Photo-spies noticed his test mule on the eve of the roads of Scandinavia. Photos are shown in the video of Youtube channel AutoNews Creative.

Two years before the proposed premiere, the company’s engineers have already begun to test the future crossover. While his test mule is convicted in a body from the current generation Hyundai Santa Fe. However, it is given out by elongated front fenders and a hood. Of course, this is due to the fact that the Genesis has a longer wheelbase.

It is likely that Genesis engineers use the Sante Fe body to adjust the suspension and transmission. This is common practice in the early stages of developing a car.

The Genesis GV80 concept was presented in New York in April 2017. He had a fairly spacious four-seater salon. According to rumors, the GV80 will share most of its base with the Genesis G80 E-Class sedan.

The serial version is likely to be available with hybrid powerplants. After all, environmental norms become stricter every year. The concept was demonstrated power unit on hydrogen fuel cells. But this version probably should not be expected on the assembly line. The novelty will become a global model.
