The new 2021 Genesis GV80, the first SUV from the Hyundai Motor Group’s luxury brand

It is rare to see an automobile unveiled in the morning and then drive it later that day. But such was the situation with the newest 2021 Genesis GV80, the first SUV from the Hyundai Motor Group’s luxury brand. MotorTrend was among a few foreign journalists encouraged to Seoul for the worldwide debut of the car that went available instantly in South Korea; it’ll arrive in the USA and Canada later this year, likely in the autumn. Additionally, it will be sold in eight Middle Eastern states, Russia, and Australia. We then had an opportunity to push GV80 SUV only.

Not surprisingly, the bustling city of Seoul is filled with Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis vehicles. However, the accession of the very first SUV to get Genesis is a giant deal. Cases in point: Around 300 local press came out to the premiere, and if we had been behind the wheel, a car (presumably filled with members of the Korean media) followed for miles, the passenger hanging outside the window taking photos with a high-end camera.

For North America, the GV80 will be crucial, as the Genesis manufacturer has struggled to get traction. It is the first of 3 crossovers planned by calendar-year 2021 (an individual will be a pure EV, we heard ), and is thought of as the brand’s new flagship. And while SUVs are ubiquitous today, the Genesis GV80 does bring stylingâ$” and probably valueâ$” to the table.

The GV80 joins the Lincoln Aviator as one of the few non-body-on-frame SUVs to ride on a rear-wheel-drive platform with the all-wheel-drive capability and is a midsize five-passenger vehicle with an optional third row. Genesis layout, which revolves around the idea of two lines is further refined by it. That’s reflected in the strips which function as LED headlamps and taillamps, as well as. Genesis design leader SangYup Lee describes the GV80.

The creative process for the final design of the GV80 started with a more complicated shape: a mainstream style, a one, and three concepts, which is. The chief design officer of Hyundai Motor Group, Luc Donckerwolke, said after that the rest fell into place, and the group concentrated with a brief overhang, long dash-to-axle ratio, and wheel arches to accommodate 22-inch wheels. The shape was compared to the Bentley Bentayga, but search for its GV80 to begin as low as $48,000 compared to Bentley SUV’s six-figure price tag.

The Korean-spec GV80 starts with a new 3.0-liter turbodiesel I-6, with an output of approximately 274 horsepower and 434 lb-ft of torque. Diesel is a favorite in Korea, and also the powertrain will allow Genesis to expand into Europe as early as a year ago. Sadly, the diesel will not be available from the U.S. This is the engine in our test vehicle. On a short drive from Seoul to Incheon and back in the Korean-market diesel, there was ample torque in the ready, and acceleration was constant and smooth. The motor is remarkably quiet; you’d never discern it smell, feel, or is a gas by noise. The character of the engine matches the car like a glove, which isn’t surprising given that the M3 platform for the coming and GV80 G80 sedan was designed with this engine in mind.

Two turbocharged petrol engines will follow in a few months, both of which will allow it into America. The U.S. will have a choice of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder or 3.5-liter V-6, with specifics like output still to come. The 5.0-liter V-8 no longer makes sense at a global automobile when most global efficiency and emissions regulations now preclude using larger engines, and it doesn’t make business sense to provide it just for your U.S. The engines are more straightforward but do not sound as satisfying. We’re told the gas engines aren’t the identical Smartstream powertrains utilized in front-wheel-drive vehicles like the Hyundai Sonata; they are altered for Genesis rear-wheel-drive vehicles.

The first two rows provide plenty of headroom, but like most midsize SUVs that are three-row, accommodations get a little cramped in the back row. The chairs are comfortable, front and back–and Genesis says they are the most innovative it’s utilized to date. The Korean-spec versions have pillows on the headrests. The driver’s seat has seven air cells to distribute body pressure and reduce fatigue. The front seats are heated and cooled and extend a lovely massage.

Past three- and – four-spoke steering wheels from Genesis’s other versions are replaced here with a new design together with the winged badge at the center of the brand; the controls are tucked to the sides. It looks and functions only and cleanly, and it’s also easy on your grip. The GV80 includes a lot of infotainment and driver-assist technology, and many of the systems will be regular so that Genesis hopes to set up itself as the benchmark. Among them is an automated system with a turn sign, as well as the usual variety of collision-alert and -avoidance systems. The display shows vehicles coming from behind in the adjacent lane.

Some markets will acquire navigation which takes video from cameras that are front and displays it on the screen. This may not make it to the U.S., although Mercedes does provide a similar feature in its latest models here. An instrument display watches your own eyes to see whether you’re diverted, and they pull off a trendy three-dimensional impact as your eyes travel to the side. Again, this might not be U.S.-bound. Much effort went into an active noise-cancellation system. There are roughly eight smart microphones and an algorithm that focuses. The machine employs the speakers to then cancel it out, but while we discovered the cottage quite enough, it wasn’t a total cocoon.

Our first taste of the critical GV80–it hopes to bite into sales of their Mercedes GLE, BMW X5, and their ilk–shows that it could be the catalyst that places the brand on the radar of buyers that have not yet discovered Genesis’s stellar sedans. We are looking forward to seeing if that belief holds up once we get more time behind the wheel, and also in America.
