The first crossover Genesis: new images

September 28, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

On the Web, alleged images of the Genesis GV80 crossover have appeared. They were posted to the genesisoffreehold Instagram account.

Images can be either renders from the configurator or visualization of a third-party artist – tightly tinted windows speak for which they cannot be seen in favor of their “virtuality”. Moreover, in general, the crossover is similar to prototypes: cars have the same angles of inclination of the roof line and glazing, as well as a similar shape of the slots in the front bumper.

In the summer, Genesis COO Erwin Rafael revealed details about the new off-road premium brand model. According to him, first a large crossover GV80, built on the G80 platform, will appear on the market, and then a more compact GV70 on the platform of the G70 sedan.

According to rumors, the premiere of the GV80 will take place before the end of the year. The main competitors of the model on the market will be the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE. The novelty will be offered with the same engines as the G80 sedan: a 3.8-liter aspirated engine with a capacity of 316 horsepower, a 3.3 turbo engine with a return of 370 forces, and also with a five-liter V8 (426 hp).
