You won’t apprehend Genesis accordant with this, but there’s a case to be fabricated that Hyundai erred three years ago in ablution its apprentice affluence cast with a brace of absolutely good, high-end sedans. The point being, the G80 and G90 were sedans – not SUVs.
Ditto the abutting Genesis, the G70: acceptable abundant to be voted North American Car of the Year but still, well, a car.
The official Genesis acknowledgment is that full-size sedans like the G90 (and Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7 Series etc.) accept commonly authentic the affluence segment, and that’s area Genesis bare to accomplish its aperture account as a affluence brand. It didn’t hurt, either, that appropriate out of the box, Genesis topped the JD Power Initial Quality Survey two years in a row.
Still, baptize beneath the bridge. These canicule SUVs boss the affluence end of the auto bazaar aloof as they do the banal end, and bigger backward than never, the aboriginal Genesis SUV has clearly burst awning in Canada.
The 2021 GV80 (the V continuing for versatility) is a mid-size SUV based on an all-new Genesis rear-wheel drive architectonics (though AWD will be accepted in Canada). So no, it’s not a gussied-up adaptation of the accomplished but front-drive-based Hyundai Palisade. Nor does it allotment any belvedere accouterments with the absolute RWD-based Genesis sedans (which, incidentally, were originally developed to be Hyundais, again repurposed back Genesis was created as a stand-alone affluence cast in backward 2015).
The GV80 will action a best of turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder or 3.5-litre V6 engines. It’ll be accessible with a cardinal of industry-first features, including alive alley babble cancellation, an alive motion driver’s seat, a centre ancillary airbag amid the avant-garde seats, a largest-in-segment 14.5-inch infotainment touch-screen, and avant-garde Forward Collision Avoidance Assist with aberrant levels of “situational awareness” and acknowledgment capability.
Not abundant is accessible yet in abstruse specs, but at 4,935 mm the GV80 is about identical in breadth to the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE, and will be accessible with third-row seating. We apprehend application ratings in the low 300s and aerial 300s appropriately for the four-cylinder and V6 engines respectively. Electronically-controlled capricious abeyance will be available, and caster sizes up to 22 inches.

Genesis bodies use the appellation “white space” to call the interior’s accent on affected yet anatomic simplicity. Noteworthy elements accommodate a rotary-knob accessory selector (made of glass), a abstracted touchpad ambassador for the capital screen, conspicuously abbreviate air vents, and touch-screen altitude controls. For bigger or worse, adamantine buttons and knobs were kept to a minimum.
The autogenous architecture aggregation additionally fabricated a point of accouterment the aforementioned levels of comfort, and fit-and-finish, for cartage in the additional and third rows. Designers, we’re told, nicknamed the average row the “Star Lounge” because the acceptable ambit of recline acclimation lets occupants conceive through the across-the-board bottle roof.
The exoteric presents the attitude and accommodation of a exceptional rear-wheel drive vehicle, with abbreviate overhangs and a coupe-like falling roofline. In accession to the latest “G-Matrix” change of the Genesis grille, the GV80 additionally introduces a four-headlamp analysis that is destined to be a signature Genesis administration element. The architecture of the awfully shallow, slot-like accumbent ablaze clusters carries through in the turn-signal repeaters in the fenders and the wraparound rear lighting. As well, the cross-hatch burden of the grille is a burden that appears in abounding added genitalia of the vehicle.
Why was Miami called for the acknowledge of the North American GV80? In no baby allotment because, for the aboriginal time, Genesis will run a TV bartering during the Super Bowl. And clashing best Super Bowl ads, the Genesis atom – featuring celebrity brace Chrissy Teigen and John Legend – will additionally be apparent in Canada.
There’s no appraisement yet, but Genesis is already demography online pre-orders for the GV80, for commitment starting in the additional bisected of this year. Beyond that, attending for a next-generation G80 auto soon, a abate bunched SUV in a year, and an electric car (possibly based on the attractive Essentia abstraction car) by the end of 2021.
