Genesis GV80 luxury SUV spotted in India again

The GV80 is based on Hyundai’s M3 platform and features an almost Bentley Bentayga-esque design.

The Genesis GV80 has been spotted in India once again. The luxury SUV was recently seen on the streets of Chennai, leading to speculations that Hyundai could be planning to launch it in the Indian market.

Genesis is a subsidiary of Hyundai that offers premium products, similar to what Lexus is to Toyota. The GV80 is its flagship SUV. It was first seen alongside the G80 sedan at the inauguration of the new Hyundai India headquarters in Gurgaon.

The GV80 is based on Hyundai’s M3 platform and features a rather bold-looking exterior. It has an almost Bentley Bentayga-esque design featuring a large chrome grille, stacked LED headlamps and LED tail lights, as well as massive 22-inch alloy wheels.

The interior of the car looks clean and uncluttered with a simple dashboard featuring horizontal air-conditioning vents and a 14.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system up top. The car has a 2-spoke steering wheel and a digital instrument cluster.

In the international market, Genesis offers the GV80 with 2.5-litre and 3.5-litre petrol engines and a 3.0-litre diesel engine option. All three versions are available with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
