The Genesis GV70 is based on the same architecture as that of the recently introduced G70 business sedan. The company has announced several powertrains: a 2.5-liter petrol engine from the Theta III family (the same unit that is installed on the GV80 produces 304 hp) and a 3.5-liter 380-hp motor. A 2.2-liter 210-hp diesel engine will be available as an alternative. The GV70 will also be equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. AWD systems will be available as an option.

The interior, in turn, differs from other Genesis models. The central place on the fascia is occupied by an oval-shaped insert, which contains seat adjustment keys and a climate control unit. There are also an infotainment system with a touchscreen that rises above the fascia, a digital cockpit behind the wheel and a transmission rotary shifter placed on the wide central tunnel.
