The GV70 takes apparent design cues from the GV80 and G80, with 4 skinny LED headlights and taillights, a large crest grille and a swage line that begins from the hood and falls again towards the taillights.

The GV70 seemingly rides on the identical platform because the GV80 and shall be provided with rear-wheel drive as customary or all-wheel drive as an possibility. The Sport mannequin might get extra energy than the usual variations, in addition to totally different tuning for the suspension and steering.
