By the year 2021, Hyundai’s premium sub-brand is planning to expand its lineup by offering customers six car models at once. One of them is the luxury Genesis GV70 crossover.

Genesis is going to bring to the market a luxury crossover with the GV70 index. In the hierarchy of brand models, it will follow the larger GV80. The appearance of the new product due to frequent spy photos was able to make out in the smallest details. In its design, the cross resembles the BMW X4, and experts unanimously call the curved line of the rear pillars, which makes the model more elegant and sporty, as its most noticeable detail. Also, the novelty gets a massive grille, original optics, separate taillights, a large rear diffuser, as well as a cool trunk lid in the spirit of KIA ProCeed.

When decorating the interior of the car, the manufacturer used high-quality leather with black accents, and on the center console there is a controller in the style of BMW iDrive.

 The dashboard has not yet been presented, but there is speculation that it will receive a tablet orientation. At the same time, the virtual dashboard will be similar to the one that will be put in the restyled G70 sedan. Among the options, it is worth highlighting the Lexicon premium audio system, all-round cameras, a rich set of driver assistants, etc. Among the electronic “assistants”, by the way, there is a remote parking system, like Tesla.

The Genesis GV70 platform will be borrowed from the G70 sedan, so they will probably share the motors too. This is a two-liter 252-horsepower turbo engine, a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with a return of 303 hp, as well as a powerful two-cylinder 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 with 365 hp. Probably a 2.2 or three liter turbodiesel, as well as a hybrid with a plug-in. Already in the “base” cross will receive 8-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive.

 Among the main competitors, the new products are called a number of premium crossovers, among them – Range Rover Evoque, BMW X3 and X4, Audi Q5, Porsche Macan, Jaguar F-Pace, etc. Genesis GV70 will reach dealers in North America only in 2021.

Meanwhile, Genesis rival BMW X5 showed off a camouflage-free interior. This is the first crossover of the Genesis GV80 brand, the debut of which they promise to organize before the end of this year.
