Genesis says the US-spec mannequin can have a Sport Bundle, which doubtless incorporates the aforementioned applied sciences. And identical to the GV80, the GV70 can have an electronically managed adaptive suspension that may regulate damper settings primarily based on upcoming highway situations.

Genesis gives a boatload of security tech on all its autos and the GV70 will observe go well with. The corporate’s Freeway Driving Help II tech, which mixes adaptive cruise management and steering help, will likely be obtainable, as will computerized pace adaptation, forward-collision avoidance, blind-spot monitoring and a driver consideration monitor. The navigation system can have augmented actuality overlays, and mother or father firm Hyundai’s distant parking characteristic — you recognize, Smaht Pahk — will likely be provided.

Inside, Genesis says the GV70 can have a fingerprint authentication system in addition to sensors that may detect rear-seat passengers. There is a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and the extensive infotainment display screen atop the sprint measures a powerful 14.5 inches. That is all packaged in an inside that appears tremendous premium, and if our time in the new G80 and GV80 are any indication, the supplies and total match and end ought to be class-leading stuff.

We initially saw the GV70 back in October, nevertheless it’s price mentioning but once more that this factor appears tremendous cool. The quad headlamps and sloping roofline are nice, and the Sport Bundle provides a darkish chrome mesh grille, redesigned bumpers, a body-colored diffuser and distinctive wheels.
