Genesis GV70 SUV released to the Australian market

Genesis GV70 adds to the growing luxury line-up from Genesis Motors. The latest SUV is a medium sized model that comes with a choice of three engines and either rear wheel drive or AWD, one transmission and two option packs which can be taken separately or together.

Genesis GV70Like all the Genesis vehicle the styling combines a conservative approach with stylish detail. It is well proportioned with the wheel at each corner design and a long nose.

The signature Crest grille with G-Matrix pattern and the two stripe Quad Lamp headlights are born out of the Genesis emblem crest and wings, showcasing Genesis’ Design Identity.

Genesis tells us that the interior is inspired by the concept of the “Beauty of White Space” which carefully balances function and tranquillity. Its cabin is an open, uncluttered space with a sporty, driver-focused instrument layout.

Inspired by the simple, yet dynamic forms of airplane wings and fuselages, the cabin relies on elliptical shapes to maximise the sense of volume and emotional gratification.

The first-ever GV70 takes the strengths of the Genesis brand – driving comfort and quietness – then adds confident, dynamic driving performance and new technologies to give the luxury, medium SUV segment a fresh, new direction.

As you would expect the GV70 is packed with many safety, comfort and luxury features as well as the optional packs.
