    genesis gv80 leaks 🇰🇷 ______________________________________ [12/1/19] happy december everyone, genesis is a monster about to emerge and the new gv80 is going to shake up the midsized luxury suv segment! now that they have autonomy from hyundai, genesis has been hard working on their own infotainments, switchgear, fonts, design and unique components only to the genesis brands! their first product to feature this is the upcoming gv80 suv that will tackle the x5, xc90, gle, mdx and other suv’s of that class! the gv80 is based on a rwd chassis derived from the upcoming all new g80 sedan and frankly looks stunning, almost like a bentayga met the xc90 and created a beast! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏁 @allcarnews spec sheet: the rwd/awd gv80 suv should pack a 3.3l tt v6 currently making 365hp but my sources say it will be revised to produce more power. other engines could include a base n/a v6 and possibly a turbo-4 as well. definitely expect a phev version in the future as well. 🏁 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ many call genesis a failure but no one points to their first true lineup yet to be (very soon) released consisting of the ground up new g80 sedan, the facelifted g90, the all new gv80 suv, the upcoming g70 suv, a facelifted g70 sedan, and a limited electric supercar in partnership with rimac! the gv80 features split strip led lights front and back with a new g-matrix genesis grille, and a radical interior design! the interior van be optioned with things like quilted leather, massaging seats and all the hands down best driver assistance systems that even give tesla’s autopilot a fun for its money in most conditions. the unique interior design with the horizontal steeringwheel, custom switch gear, integrated infotainment, digital dash and more offer a fresh look on a segment with interiors that have been around for ages... cough cough bmw. it is set to go on sale in the us summer 2020 too! ________________________________________ acn extra: super excited for the real genesis!________________________________________ text by @allcarnews #genesis #gv80 #gv70 #hyundai #korean #suv #v6 #v8 #g80 #stinger #carbon ||#powerful #performance

    the large pentagonal grille seen on the gv80 looks to be a new signature for genesis, as we saw it on the refreshed g90 sedan and in spy photos of the upcoming second-generation g80 sedan. slim headlights and an imposing, squared-off hood give the car plenty of presence, and from what we can see of the taillights the rear-end styling looks reminiscent of the bentley bentayga.

    interior images show a plush-looking cabin with quilted leather upholstery, a huge display screen mounted on the center of the dashboard, and two knobs on the center console that we assume are a rotary gear shifter and a control knob for the infotainment system.

    we suspect that the gv80 will use a turbocharged v-6 engine and possibly a turbocharged four-cylinder as its base engine, with a plug-in hybrid model set to join the lineup at some point. it will use a rear-wheel-drive platform shared with the g80, which is slated to get a redesign next year as well.

    this sneak peek gives us our best glimpse of the gv80 yet, but we'll still have to wait for the official reveal to get all the details. expect to hear more over the next few months as genesis prepares to launch its first suv.
