Genesis GV80 Leaked

Genesis GV80 is expected to make global debut early next year and is said to be based on the same platform as Hyundai Palisade

Hyundai has long been reported to introduce its luxury arm Genesis in the domestic market for years now. It was recently speculated that the Genesis was given a green light for debut in India as well. Currently, the global portfolio of Genesis comprises of three sedans but two more luxury SUVs will be added to the range in a year or two.

One is dubbed the GV80 and is based on Hyundai’s Palisade, the eight-seater SUV with the largest footprint within the brand’s stable. It will apparently have several commonalities with the G80 sedan while the GV70 SUV will be based on the G70 sedan and the highly popular Kia Stinger. The latter could share its underpinnings with the next-gen Tucson as well.

The GV80 could make its global premiere early next year and it could be considered for India but the chances of a right-hand-drive GV70 is highly likely as per previous reports. Coming back to GV80, it has created quite a buzz since the beginning of this year since the spy shots appeared on the web.
