Genesis GV80 Revealed: New Competitor to the X5

Looks pretty good both inside and out and looks like Genesis has finally gotten their own switchgear and design language that isn't shared with parent company's Hyundai cars. Now if they can get some separate dealerships, they might have a better time selling cars.

What do you guys think?

Love the interior. Not sure about exterior till I see one in person. Thanks for posting!

But isn't this a mechanical twin of the Hyundai Palisade?

They use Genesis' RWD platform. The Telluride/Palisade twins are FWD based. I believe the Kia Stinger is the only non Genesis vehicle to use the RWD platform.

That would be in line with all the other mainstream/luxury marquees - wouldn't it?

Think Highlander/RX350, Pilot/MDX, Tahoe/Escalade, so on and so forth. I don't think that is a problem so long as quality, NVH, and feature content is appropriately distinguished.

This is an entirely different platform. The GV80's RWD platform will be what the next gen G80 uses. Same with the GV70 and G70.

Same concept as the Giulia to Stelvio.

I'm hoping the GV70 is as good as the G70 since I get a substantial discount and the wife is bored with her RX.

From what it looks like the GV70 will be the next model out although the proportions look a bit weird towards the back. Looks very small too although I guess we'll see when its revealed.

Exterior looks reminiscent of the Bentayga. Looks more expensive than it is.

Interior looks nice from a materials standpoint, but the design is typical Genesis: boring. When you look at a Merc, BMW, or Audi interior you can tell which company it came from. Genesis interior designs are yawn inducing.

Makes sense being that Genesis poached the designer of the Bentayga

While the interior doesn't really stand out in originality, I will say the cabin looks to be made out of high quality materials, especially after sitting in a G70 which I think has some really nice materials, and they finally have their own switchgear too, and I will say, this is much better than any of the Japanese luxury interiors from Lexus, Acura or Infiniti in my opinion.

0% of me likes the rear end. Something just doesn't quite look right.

It really is bad. The new Golf Mk8 back is similarly challenged.

looks nice. I saw Kia Telluride on the road and they do look 'expensive' for what they are. just not sure how long it will be before you start seeing wear on the seat, steering wheel, paint and clearcoat peeling off (like the Kia Stinger had).

I had a 2015 Hyundai Genesis that I traded in for my 2020 330i. From a tech standpoint, that car outshines anything with iDrive 7. And after watching the video below, I kind of want to move back to Genesis even more now. I can't think of any tech BMW has right now that Genesis doesn't have or won't have once the GV80 is out.
