The Hyundai Motor Group’s Korean web-site allow the incredibly modern and curvaceous cat out of the bag this night as the all-new Genesis GV70 compact crossover was discovered in all its purple glory.
Even though its encounter should absolutely be common to everyone who’s noticed the current G70 sedan, it truly is pretty apparent now that that facelift was motivated by its approaching GV70 sibling. The twin-slit headlight cluster and rounded fascia evidently dripped from the similar designer’s pen, but the crossover’s grille is less pointy at the base. Thankfully, that grille isn’t really ostentatiously massive like so quite a few autos these times, like Genesis’ have G90. At 1st look to these eyes, it can be quite the handsome thing and you will find practically nothing that appears to be overtly evocative of yet another brand.
The rear three-quarter view is potentially additional unique with its unusual C pillar, rear quarter window (be aware the chrome trim that flows like a wave from A pillar to liftgate) and sliced-and-diced rear fender. We do not have a whole glance at the rear, but it also has twin slit taillights like its significant brother, the GV80. The rounded roofline is also vaguely identical to the Porsche Macan’s, which is no poor point visually, but could mean a compromised cargo place. Notice that the red car or truck proven in photographs is equipped with a activity package.
Truly, though, the genuine present stopper is the inside. 1st, apparently you can get the point in purple. Just when you believed the blue G80 was cool and the inexperienced GV80 was nifty, properly, Genesis outdid them both of those with the Prince Memorial GV70 Deal (it very likely will not be called this). You can also get it in pink. Nonetheless, even in beige or black, the style ought to wow with its extensive widescreen display screen (shared with G80 and GV80, see video below), smooth integrated air vents and the most ovular regulate cluster since the 1996 Ford Taurus. It is truly fairly anything.
Except if the Google translation from Korean missed a little something, the Hyundai Motor Team posting failed to expose everything over and above the GV70’s pics and a entire bunch of words describing what you’re viewing in all those photographs. So, you know, form of like this post but with far more flowery marketingy prose.
Timing of when the GV70 could arrive stateside was not indicated. Its timing for Korea was not for that issue, both. We’ll be anxiously awaiting its arrival, however, simply because the compact luxury crossover segment is overdue for a nice shake up.
