Genesis GV80 concept previews BMW X5-rivaling SUV



Genesis GV80 concept, 2017 New York auto show

Genesis has given us our first taste at one of its upcoming SUVs with the GV80 concept car unveiled on Wednesday at the 2017 New York auto show.
The concept also introduces the naming strategy for Genesis’ SUVs, with the “G” representing the Genesis brand, the “V” the extra versatility of an SUV, and the “80” the positioning in the brand’s lineup.
Hyundai’s luxury brand is committed to having a lineup of six cars by the end of 2020, and two of these cars will be SUVs. The first, previewed by the GV80 concept, will be a mid-size model targeting the BMW X5. The second will be a smaller model targeting the BMW X3.
If an alleged Genesis product roadmap is to be believed, the GV80 will arrive in production form in the next year or two. By then, Genesis will already be selling its new G70 small sedan.

Genesis’ “athletic elegance” design philosophy lends itself quite well to the SUV form factor, though it remains to be seen how much of the concept’s lines transfer over to the production model. Up front is Genesis’ “crest” grille which features a diamond pattern. This is flanked by split headlights made up of LEDs. One interesting element is the structural truss design for the roof pillars which can be seen from inside the vehicle.
The interior features an open design and is dominated by a 22-inch curved display at the top of the dash. It’s joined by a second screen that forms the main instrument cluster. The 22-inch screen presents two distinct zones, providing separate driver and passenger experiences. Interacting with the screen can be done by touching the thin metal strips in the center console. There is also a controller wheel whose center is a concave glass touchpad.
Genesis says the GV80 concept is powered by a fuel cell but hasn’t released any additional details.

#NYIAS: So, You've Seen Its EXTERIOR, How About The INTERIOR? Are You Diggin' The GUTS Of The Genesis GV80 Concept?






I have to admit that Agent 001 and I were a bit surprised by the Genesis GV80.



For some reason, it just didn't seem like Hyundai's luxury division would come out with a sport-utility vehicle this bold.

Of course given where sales are heading — right now buyers favor SUVs — it was clear that one would come along. But, you have to take note here.

**Interested in the GV80? Read all there is to know about it in the Genesis GV80 press release HERE!

After speaking with Agent 001, he gave me a pearl: Genesis' GV80 isn't reaching for the BMW X5, Lexus RX or Land Rover Range Rover. It's reaching for Bentley.

Just take a look at its exterior, which has led 001 to brilliantly coin the all-new Genesis concept, "The Gentayga." Only adding fuel to the fire is its interior, which is the definition of, well, decadent.

Headlights to become vestigial, says Genesis design boss




Luc Donckerwolke explains why the GV80 has such small headlights.
The Genesis GV80 concept at the New York Auto Show may have been notable for being a hydrogen-powered SUV or the brand's first luxury crossover, but there was another future trend written across its face — small headlights.

Luc Donckerwolke, head of design for the Genesis brand, believes that some time in the not-too-distant future headlights on cars will be rendered obsolete. Speaking to the Australian press, he noted that thanks to autonomous driving, cars of the future will be able to navigate roads in complete darkness.

It explains in part why the Genesis SUV's grille takes up so much frontal real estate, with only four slivers of LEDs flanking it on each side. "We are reducing the size because we are anticipating the fact that slowly cars won't need lights any more," he told Motoring.com.au.

Though lights for illuminating the road may be replaced by an array of radar and laser sensors, vestigial headlights like the ones on the GV80 might still persist as design cues.

Though it sounds far fetched, we wouldn't rule out anything Donckerwolke has to say. Having worked previously at VW Group designing Audis, Bentleys and Lamborghinis, the Belgian designer knows a thing or two about setting trends.

Genesis Won't Remain RWD Only, GV80 Concept Previews New Styling Direction




Genesis chief designer Luc Donckerwolke has revealed the company is making progress in its transition from becoming a sub-brand of Hyundai to a full-fledged luxury automaker.

Speaking with Car and Driver, Donckerwolke said “Genesis was born out of Hyundai and now we are splitting the brands, creating teams, but at the same time keeping synergies. This will likely prove an important step as Genesis needs to be seen as a legitimate luxury brand rather than a fancy Hyundai.

Part of the separation between the two brands will be visual as Donckerwolke is working to create a unique styling language for Genesis. Since the G70 was created before Donckerwolke joined the automaker, he says the GV80 concept provides a better glimpse at the brand's styling direction.

As Donckerwolke explained, the concept's distinctive head- and taillights will "become our signature." They will be joined by a new grille design which was also previewed by the concept.

Besides talking about the brand's styling direction, Donckerwolke hinted Genesis might not remain exclusively rear-wheel drive. As he explained "electrification changes the situation." However, the magazine reports the change won't be happen anytime soon as it expects three new models will be launched by 2020 and all of them will be driven by the rear wheels.

Spyshots: 2020 Genesis GV80 SUV Testing to Kickstart Hyundai's Luxury Crossover



With SUVs selling like hotcakes these days, it was only a matter of time until Hyundai's new Genesis upmarket sub-brand would aim for a slice of this pie. Well, here we are, bringing you the first spyshots of the future Genesis crossover.
52 photos



A pair of prototypes of the Genesis SUV was spotted doing its thing in the proximity of the Arctic Circle. We're looking at chassis mules hiding new tech bits under modified Santa Fe bodies.

Notice the extended wheelbase, the heftier track width, as well as the wheels, some of which showing the Genesis badge.

One of the test cars also came with a window sticker delivering a few tech details: JX1 must be the internal code for the project, while the rest of the label read 3.5G 4WD AT.

While this could mean the automatic, all-wheel-drive SUV will feature a new 3.5-liter V6, we're expecting the engineers to also come up with a hybrid powertrain for the vehicle, with this potentially arriving later in the model's lifecycle.

Keep in mind that this SUV was previewed by the Genesis GV80 Concept, which landed at last year's New York International Auto Show. Hopefully, the production model will stay true to the impressive lines of the concept. For one thing, Luc Donckerwolke, who helms the Genesis design department, used to hold a similar position at Bentley, while having also led Lamborghini's penning department in the past

We're expecting the Genesis SUV to bow in late 2019, coming as a 2020 model, which means we have plenty of time to try and get under its skin.

While the GV80, which may or may not receive a new nameplate, will compete with SUVs such as the 2019 BMW X5 or 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE, the Genesis brand will also welcome a second crossover, namely a compact proposal aimed at the BMW X3 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC.

Speaking of the competition, we'll remind you that the Genesis sub-brand now has its independent US dealer network.

Genesis GV80 SUV To Arrive End of 2019




Genesis plans to have its own network of dealers and a extended line-up of vehicles for them to sell as it seeks to take a piece of the cake of the luxury market, as soon as 2022.


By then, the already separated Genesis brand need to have three crossovers to balance a product menu that has been carried by sedans that are highly rated but have struggled to build sales momentum in a truck-dominated market.
Genesis unveiled the GV80 concept as a fuel cell vehicle at the 2017 New York Auto Show. It’s slated to be the first crossover added to the brand’s SUV lineup.


Global brand chief Manfred Fitzgerald told Automotive News in March that the three-row crossover could come at the end of 2019 or early 2020. Fuel cell or plug-in hybrid versions could be in store.
A second Genesis planned crossover is expected to ride on the same RWD/AWD platform as the G70 sedan and use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo and an optional 3.3-liter twin-turbo.


Hybrid or plug-in hybrid versions are possible. A GV70 crossover would quickly follow the larger GV80. If the GV80 arrives on schedule in the late-2019, early-2020 time frame, the GV70 could come a couple of months later.
The third SUV was included in a product scheduled that Hyundai showed to media reporters last year in South Korea and it could join the line-up in 2021.

Genesis Will Launch Its First Crossover In Early 2020











Launching a new brand is always a difficult task and it’s a significantly harder when the entire lineup consists of sedans when consumers are far more interested in crossovers.

That’s the situation Genesis finds itself in and it’s not surprising to learn that sales have been pretty dismal as a result of this and other factors. According to Carsalesbase data, Genesis only sold 20,612 vehicles in the United States last year and has only moved 8,490 units through August of 2018.
To put those numbers into perspective, Cadillac also is a luxury brand with a sedan focused lineup. However, the company managed to sell 156,440 units in the United States last year and has a new entry-level crossover on the way.
While Genesis got off to a rocky start, things should improve in the future. The 2019 G70 was unveiled earlier this year and it will soon become the brand’s most affordable model.

Further down the road, we can expect a handful of crossovers. The first will arrive in early 2020 and Car and Driver reports it will be a mid-sized crossover that was previewed by the GV80 concept. The publication says the model will ride on the same platform that underpins the next-generation G80 and will likely be offered with V6 and V8 engines.
One year later, the company is expected to unveil the entry-level GV70 crossover which is loosely based on the G70 sedan. The model will reportedly compete with other luxury crossovers such as the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC. While it would be natural to assume the model would use the same engines as the G70, Genesis Motor America executive director Erwin Raphael told the publication the crossover’s launch “could be a great time to introduce other powertrains.”
Besides the crossovers, we can expect at least one coupe. Earlier reports suggested the Essentia concept would be going into limited production, but it appears that’s not the case – at least officially.
