Premium sub-brand Hyundai Motor is preparing to debut the new Genesis GV70 crossover, which will become the “younger brother” of the flagship GV80. The day before, the first pictures of the novelty were published on the Web.

A test prototype of the Genesis GV70 luxury crossover was previously spotted by photo spies in South Korea. The car almost completely repeated the appearance of its “big brother” – the luxury crossover GV80, whose appearance should take place next year. From this SUV, the novelty borrowed a radiator grill and original headlights in the form of two horizontal stripes. The last “trick” came up with the Belgian designer Luc Donkerwolke, who became the new director of design at Hyundai Motor. GV70 should debut immediately after its fellow. In the meantime, Thekoreancarblog portal showed the first photos of the future news.

 Next to the GV70, we see the G70 sedan, and this neighborhood cannot be called random. This car will become a direct relative of the GV70, not only in the model range of the brand, but also in technical terms.

According to experts, the crossover will receive the same rear-wheel drive platform, as well as three powertrains: Lambda II V6 3.3 T-GDI with 370 hp, Theta II 2.0 T-GDI with a return of 252 or 255 hp as well as a 2.2-liter 202-horsepower diesel engine. As a transmission, the manufacturer is likely to choose an eight-speed automatic. As for the premiere of new items, the specific date has not yet been announced. It is planned that the debut of the Genesis GV70 will be organized in the second or third quarter of 2020.
