RIVAL BMW X3 and AUDI Q5 from GENESIS GV70

From the shape of the future GV70-so far only sketches of the media and camouflaged photos

From the shape of the future GV70-so far only sketches of the media and camouflaged photos on the tests. But it is logical to expect that the future crossover will quote the G70 co-platform sedan not only in the elements of appearance, but also in the cabin. So expect a high-quality leather trim and inserts a La piano lacquer, a media system with an 8-inch screen and controller in the style of BMW iDrive, as well as a circular camera and a premium audio system Lexicon. A full Suite of driver's assistants will also be available, including lane-keeping assistant, Parking and exit assistance.

Unification with the platform of the G70 sedan involves "mirroring" and on the part of the units. And this means a basic 2-liter gasoline turbo engine at 252 HP and 353 Nm, 2.5-liter engine at 303 HP or top-end biturb V6 volume of 3.3 liters and a return of 365 HP and 510 Nm. Also, we will not rule out diesel variants for 2.2 and 3 liters and a hybrid version. The transmission will be uncontested: 8-speed automatic paired with all-wheel drive.  

The future Genesis GV70 will have to compete with the sharks of the segment. These are BMW X3, Audi Q5, Range Rover Evoque, Volvo XC60, Porsche Macan, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Jaguar F-Pace, Infiniti QX50.

The GV70 is expected to go on sale by 2021, when Genesis plans to upgrade the G70 sedan as well. Publication Carscoops suggests that in the US the price of the novelty will start from $40 000. But the GV70 will not be the first crossover of the brand: its larger brother GV80, which has also been "caught" by photospies, starts earlier.
