The new GV70 will join the larger GV80 in spring as a 2022 model. In The Sleuth’s opinion, this competitor to the BMW X3, Audi Q5 and Infiniti QX50 is easily the best looking of the bunch. From the chain-link-style V-shaped grille to the curved rear end, the GV70 conveys high fashion. A 300-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder is the base engine, with the GV70 Sport getting a 375-horsepower twin-turbo V-6. This model also gets a distinctive grille plus unique interior and exterior trim, paint and 21-inch wheels. The Sleuth expects pricing to begin in low-$40,000 territory.
The GV70 will be the second utility vehicle to join the Genesis lineup. It’s smaller than the GV80 and will have a lower base price.
