The upcoming 2021 Genesis GV80 will arrive in early 2020. The manufacturer is finally converting the concept into a production model. We saw the same concept at the New York Auto Show 2017. Recently, some low-resolution spy photos have been leaked to Instagram. It is the first look at the company’s latest SUV.
As we see in the pictures, Genesis has updated the design and will also introduce completely new exterior features. The photos were taken at a Hyundai storage facility. The interior is also visible and provides new design elements that are also different from other Genesis models. Under the hood, we can expect a powerful and reliable V6 engine along with a hybrid powertrain.
2021 Genesis GV80 Exterior leaked on Instagram
As the latest pictures show, the design of the 2021 Genesis GV80 will differ slightly from the concept of the GV80. Genesis design differs from other commercial vehicles. It is another step forward for the auto industry. Converting a concept into a production model is a daunting task, so everything has a full meaning. The headlights are larger, and it is not surprising.
After all, the concept headlights were very small. The network has also grown. The new look is similar to the recently updated G90 design. As for the dimensions, they are the same as in the concept. The back contains some important changes. The taillights are larger and extend to the side panels.
2021 Genesis GV80 Interior details
New Instagram photos also show interior photos. For starters, the 2021 Genesis GV80 comes with a higher central console that separates the two front seats. There is an electronic disk in front of the driver and the driver can easily change gears. In addition, a round touchpad is available as well as several passenger seat buttons.
The dashboard contains an easy-to-use infotainment system. Higher cutting levels are equipped with a digital instrument panel that can also be configured by the driver. However, the basic models come with traditional analog meters.
2021 Genesis GV80 Reliable V6 engine and other transmission options
Like the next-generation G80, the new 2021 Genesis GV80 will also appear as a rear-wheel drive vehicle. In both cases, two models share the same platform. In addition, the two will share many mechanical components, including the V6 engine. Genesis isn’t waiting for the development of the V8, so the reliable V6 was the only option.
Now we know that an eight-cylinder engine should wait a little longer. However, an additional hybrid alternative is possible. The PHEV version is likely to be added to the payment system, but you will have to wait until 2022. The all-wheel drive is available and is optional. AWD setting is standard at some trim levels.
2021 Genesis GV80 price and release date
As for the release date, the 2021 Genesis GV80 which will come close to display will be released in early 2020. Once it arrives, the GV80 will take well-established models such as BMW X5 and Audi Q7. In addition, Mercedes-Benz GLE, Volvo XC90 and Lincoln Aviator are other potential competitors. As for the starting price, Genesis did not specify the details. However, the most likely result for this SUV starts from $ 50,000.
