Genesis lifted the veil on its first crossover, showing a production version of the GV80 with many of the premium brand’s new design features, including high-tech quad lamps and an imposing Creste grille.
The long-awaited crossover also features the brand’s so-called Parabolic character line accentuating the sides and wheel arch treatment for “athletic elegance.”
The images of the production version GV80, expected to go on sale in 2020, show a vehicle that builds on the GV80 Concept introduced at the 2017 New York Auto Show. It resulted from a collaboration of Genesis design studios in South Korea, the United States and Germany.
Genesis said the vehicle is also based on a new rear-wheel drive platform.
“With the launch of GV80, Genesis will elevate expectations for excellence within the luxury SUV market,” William Lee, executive vice president and global brand head, said in a statement.
