Genesis GV70 Teased For The First Time

Honey, I shrunk the GV80.

With the GV80, Genesis was fashionably late to the luxury SUV party, but Hyundai’s premium marque is making up for lost time with a second high-riding model. Meet the GV70, teased here for the very first time ahead of an official reveal expected in the coming weeks. The South Korean brand remains coy on details for the time being, only saying the model rides on a rear-wheel-drive platform and that prototypes will undergo final testing locally for about a month.

Although dipped the GV70 remains dipped in camouflage, it’s easy to notice the styling won’t stray away too far from the larger GV80. The “two lines” lighting motif lends the posh SUV an interesting look, while the crest grille is quite large and imposing. Those air intakes on the sides of the bumper are also rather large and seem to be just for show as they’re blocked off.

Chances are the Genesis GV70 will have a lot in common with the G70, which received a mid-cycle facelift earlier this month. The refresh received by the luxury sedan also gives us an idea of how the SUV’s interior is going to look, with a new 10.25-inch infotainment system located at the top of the center console. A fully digital instrument cluster is expected, along with lots of other tech goodies like wireless charging and over-the-air updates.

The wraps should come off before the end of the year.
