2020 Genesis GV80 SUV Expected In The 1st Quarter Of 2020

Genesis, Hyundai’s luxury brand, is about to jump into the real big leagues with a pair of SUVs

Most car critics and members of the auto media have wondered why, when Hyundai officially launched the Genesis brand, they did not do so with at least one SUV at the ready. Instead, they went with a trio of sedans which, no matter how good they may be, have yet to make but a scratch in their respective segments. Now that we know the Genesis GV80 is on the way, things might turn around.

This is far from guaranteed, however. All luxury SUV segments are packed with options and most of them are German. And the Germans are really hard to beat at the game especially when they’ve had a few decades to warm up.

Genesis will nevertheless launch the GV80 midsize luxury SUV in the first quarter of 2020. If we were to make an educated comment, we’d say that it’ll probably drive very well, based on the cars of course.

A compact Genesis GV70 is expected a year later, in early 2021, and it too will likely be entertaining. This is the news pertaining to SUVs. Now, on to cars.

The gorgeous Essentia concept is apparently well underway to seeing series production. In a discussion with Motor Trend, Genesis brand chief Manfred Fitzgerald said that chassis, configurations and other details were still being worked out.

He also mentioned that the very cool Mint city-car concept has market potential. This one’s a little farther out but it got lots of love all over the world. We think it’ll be a full EV when and if it reaches showrooms in the future.
