Official Pictures Of The 2021 Genesis GV80 SUV Released

Deliveries of the Genesis GV80 start in January in South Korea, and Globally in 2020.

  • This much-anticipated SUV should quickly become the company’s best-seller.
  • Leaked images from a few weeks back were spot-on.
  • The GV80 is built on a new RWD platform, AWD will be standard in Canada.

It was at the 2017 New York Auto Show, so nearly three years since Genesis first teased its GV80 SUV. If anything, the Concept that we saw then was already very close physically to the final product.

Genesis is not yet sharing much about their new luxury SUV. For now, it’s all about exterior and interior design. As for the outer shell, Luc Donckerwolke, Executive Vice President, Chief Design Officer of Hyundai Motor Group explains that: “GV80 allows us to expand our definition of Athletic Elegance design language to a new typology, while retaining sublime proportionality and sophistication of form.”

The front is certainly distinct with its high-tech Quad Lamps and gargantuan Crest Grille. The latter did not garner many thumbs-up from critics, much like BMW’s exaggerated affairs but, in time, they will become the norm. If anything, the SUV’s lines are quite elegant, reminiscent of the Lincoln Aviator and Range Rover Velar.

The cabin looks equally elegant with a minimalist approach with a focus on “the beauty of open space, characteristic of the elegant South Korean architectural aesthetic.”

As for specs, all we know for sure is that the 2021 Genesis GV80 SUV will be offered with AWD as standard in Canada and that it is assembled on a bespoke platform. We assume that the311-horsepower 3.8-litre V6 will be offered but because it is its own vehicle, Genesis may surprise us.
