First details of the Genesis GV70 Model Year 2022, to be released in April in South Korea, where shared thanks to our colleagues at AutoPost.
The GV70 MY22 includes some updates that affects several parts of the vehicle, from drivetrain, to technology or NVH.
It is expected that this updates will carry over for overseas model between the end of the year.
GV70 MY22 product information (no change in appearance and engine):
1) Design: Enlarged application of front monoblock brake and rear wheel styling cover
It seems that the front wheel monoblock brakes and (4P) brakes that were only applicable to the 3.5T will be expanded and applied to the 2.5T and 2.2D models.
What was previously impossible to select except for the 3.5T model is now available in all trims. This was actually applicable from the beginning. It seems to have a pretext for improving product quality.
2) Convenience: Added optional ergo motion seat for passenger seat
The Ergo Motion Seat, which was applied only to the driver’s seat that was included in the convenience option, now GV70 MY22 will have the option to add this function to the passenger seat as well.
Now in this convenience package have the option to add the passenger seat in addition to the driver’s seat. This change arrives after many customers criticized the lack of possibility to add Ergo Motion Seat for passenger and even tried to buy one driver seat and install it on passenger side.
