Today we have a new photoset of the Genesis GV80 SUV spotted somewhere in the Middle East (the test car has a Dubai license plate) with just using sticker as camouflage, no more canvas.
What we know so far?
Genesis unveiled the GV80 concept as a fuel cell vehicle at the 2017 New York Auto Show. It’s slated to be the first crossover added to the brand’s SUV lineup, despite the brand need to have two extra crossovers to balance a product menu that has been carried by sedans that are highly rated but have struggled to build sales momentum in a truck-dominated market.
Despite that, the release date is still unkown, mainly due to the latest information that confirmed us the delay of the G80 sedan due to an issue with their new 2.5-liter and 3.5-liter Turbo engines.
Inside you will find an upscale design, followed by what we have seen also inside of the All-New G80 sedan, at the end of the day the GV80 is just SUV versión of the G80 so we do not expect many interior differences, we already have seen it on the spy pictures.
New details will be premiered on the Genesis Brand, like a Gear Selector, that now is a circle and probably will emerge at the time of start. We have seen this solution on Jaguar and Land Rover models as well as on Ford’s.
Also the steering wheel looks totally different compared to other Genesis models current on sale, and the infotainment system appears on top of the dashboard with a widescreen tablet-type system that could be connected together with the cluster like on the Palisade or more recent Sonata.
