The Genesis GV80 will be based on a new rear-wheel drive platform. An all-wheel drive version will appear as an option. Technical specs of the new car are still kept secret, but it is known that the GV80 will be the first Korean car with 22-inch wheels and a center airbag, which will be activated between the front seats in the event of an accident.

The Genesis GV80 is claimed to have a multimedia system with handwritten text input, active noise cancellation, and voice control. The number of digital assistants will include at least active cruise control with autopilot elements.

Details about the new premium Korean SUV will be revealed soon, as its launch in the South Korean market is scheduled for January 2020.
