The GV80 positions the SUV alongside the mid-size G80 sedan in Genesis’ lineup. This means it will be a mid-size offering targeting the BMW X5. It will reach showrooms in 2019, likely as a 2020 model, and trailing it by about a year will be a smaller GV70 SUV targeting the BMW X3.
Expect the GV80’s final design to be muscular and imposing, at least if the GV80 concept’s lines are anything to go by. The hints of Bentley in the handsome concept shouldn’t come as a surprise as Genesis’ design chief Luc Donckerwolke previously had the same role at Bentley.
