Soon, the range of the premium sub-brand Hyundai will be much more, since by 2021 the Korean company plans to release six new models.
One of such models will be a compact luxury SUV called GV70, which will follow a larger GV80. Fortunately for us, a lot of spy photos depicting the GV70, gave us a good idea of how it will look in the model.
GV70 is more in line with the BMW X4 than the traditional crossover. One noteworthy design element is the curved line of the rear pillars, which descends to the rear thigh, once again emphasizing the elegant, yet sporty character of the model.
In the front you can see a large grille, split led headlights. Visible behind the separate rear lights, large rear diffuser with twin vertical exhaust and cool the trunk lid, which can be rozanstvo the Kia ProCeed.
The interior design complements the sleekness of the exterior, with cascading lines and oval shapes. Everywhere in the cabin will be used finishing of high quality leather with black elements and a center-console mounted controller in the style of BMW iDrive. While we have not yet seen the instrument panel, we expect that it will have tablet orientation and a digital instrument panel, is very close in design to the updated version of the sedan G70, which is scheduled for the same year.
Technophiles will appreciate the 8-inch head-up display, camera circular review and audio system premium Lexicon. Will be available a complete set of driver assistance, including assistance with lane departure, Park assist, assistance at a safe exit and system of remote Parking lots similar to the Tesla.
Because the heart of the model is the same platform as that of the G70, the power plant will probably be borrowed from the sedan. They will include a 2.0-liter turbo engine with a power of 252 HP with a torque of 353 Nm, a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder turbo engine capacity of 303 horsepower and a powerful V6 cylinder turbo the volume of 3.3 litres with output of 365 HP and 510 Nm.
In addition, in the engine range the crossover might have come with a turbo diesel 2.2 or 3.0-liter engine and maybe a hybrid variant plug-in. Automatic transmission with eight-speed will be standard as all-wheel drive system.
GV70 will compete with a lot of very good crossovers such as BMW X3 and X4, Audi Q5, Range Rover Evoque, Volvo XC60, Porsche Macan, Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe, Jaguar F-Pace and the Infiniti QX50.
While its “big brother”, the GV80 SUV, could debut this month with the launch of sales next year, GV70 is expected to arrive in dealerships in North America in about 12 months, in 2021, when Genesis updates the sedan G70.
