Having given us the first photos and preliminary details of the new 2022 GV70 back in October, Genesis will perform the global launch of its first luxury compact SUV in Korea during a live stream at 8pm ET.
Slotting in the company’s lineup under the GV80, the new GV70 will challenge the likes of the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC and Audi Q5, and is instantly recognizable as a Genesis model thanks to its dual head- and taillight design and the signature crest grille at the front.
Its sporty looks are complemented by the slightly arched roofline, muscular shoulders and rounded lines. The chrome trim contrasts the exterior paint finish, and the range-topping Sport variant features an exclusive front bumper design, round exhaust pipes at the back and 21-inch wheels with a unique pattern.
The overall look of the cockpit has few things in common with the platform-sharing G70 and the GV80 SUV, as it features its own, distinctive styling.
We are about to find out the first details concerning the powertrain range, yet we could be looking at the 300 HP 2.5-liter four pot in the base, rear-wheel drive version, while the upper grades are expected with all-wheel drive and a twin-turbocharged V6, with either the 365 HP 3.3-liter or the 375 HP 3.5-liter units being the best candidates.
