UPDATED: 2020 Genesis GV80 Leaks Ahead Of Its Official Debut: Here’s What It Looks Like Inside And Out

It's looking way more luxurious that the Genesis cars we currently know

It’s taken them a little while, but Genesis is just about ready to jump on board the SUV bandwagon with their first offering: the 2020 Genesis GV80. We’ve seen in covered in prior spy shots, but this is one of our first chances to see it completely undisguised, both inside and out. Right from the moment you see it, the GV80 has a certain presence thanks to its massive grille. The G90 sedan also has that feature, so this looks like its the imminent future of the brand’s design.

Genesis GV80 LEAKS 🇰🇷 ______________________________________ [12/1/19] Happy December everyone, Genesis is a monster about to emerge and the new GV80 is going to shake up the midsized luxury SUV segment! Now that they have autonomy from Hyundai, Genesis has been hard working on their own infotainments, switchgear, fonts, design and unique components ONLY to the Genesis brands! Their first product to feature this is the upcoming GV80 SUV that will tackle the X5, XC90, GLE, MDX and other SUV’s of that class! The GV80 is based on a RWD chassis derived from the upcoming all new G80 sedan and frankly looks stunning, almost like a Bentayga met the XC90 and created a beast! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏁 @Allcarnews Spec Sheet: The RWD/AWD GV80 SUV should pack a 3.3L TT V6 currently making 365HP but my sources say it will be revised to produce more power. Other engines could include a base n/a V6 and possibly a turbo-4 as well. Definitely expect a PHEV version in the future as well. 🏁 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many call Genesis a failure but no one points to their first true lineup yet to be (very soon) released consisting of the ground up new G80 sedan, the facelifted G90, the all new GV80 SUV, the upcoming G70 SUV, a facelifted G70 sedan, and a limited electric supercar in partnership with Rimac! The GV80 features split strip LED lights front and back with a new G-Matrix Genesis grille, and a radical interior design! The interior van be optioned with things like quilted leather, massaging seats and all the hands down best driver assistance systems that even give Tesla’s Autopilot a fun for its money in most conditions. The unique interior design with the horizontal steeringwheel, custom switch gear, integrated infotainment, digital dash and more offer a fresh look on a segment with interiors that have been around for ages… cough cough BMW. It is set to go on sale in the US Summer 2020 too! ________________________________________ ACN EXTRA: Super excited for the REAL Genesis!________________________________________ Text by @allcarnews #Genesis #GV80 #GV70 #Hyundai #korean #SUV #V6 #V8 #G80 #Stinger #carbon ||#powerful #performance

As for the interior, Allcarnews posted some more detailed pictures to Instagram. As you’d expect, there’s a wide range of premium materials, quilted leather, and what looks like a fully digital instrument cluster. Add to that a large infotainment screen, and it looks like Genesis is nearly ready to take on its rivals like the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE, Audi Q7, Acura MDX, Volvo XC90 and other luxury SUVs.

The 2020 Genesis GV80 should debut sometime in the next few months before going on sale later in 2020. It may arrive in time for the Chicago Auto Show, but that is more of a truck event. If anything, it’s likely Genesis will unveil it at the New York Auto Show, if not at its own standalone event. Alternatively, it could also show up at the 2020 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, which will now take place in June.

The 2020 Genesis GV80 was spied in South Korea.

Possible powertrains?

Engines are still a bit of a mystery at this point. However, it’s likely the 2020 Genesis GV80 will launch with a turbocharged four-cylinder as its base engine. Beyond that, we’ll probably see a turbocharged V6 variant, as well as a plug-in hybrid model in the future. Power outputs could range between about 300 horsepower and 375 horsepower, depending on what ends up in the GV80’s engine bay. The 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 from its sedans would be a solid choice, although here it may be revised to give more power and torque.

We should know more on the 2020 Genesis GV80 in the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned to TFLcar.com for more updates!
