We all thought that the G70 design would be how the future Genesis model will look like when they arrive but according to Genesis, the GV80 is the one we should all be looking at.
According to Genesis chief designer Luc Donckerwolke, the company is working hard to make sure the Genesis is being recognized as a luxury automaker instead of just being a sub-brand to Hyundai.
He highlighted that it is an important step for Genesis to separate itself from Genesis. One way to separate the two is to make sure the design is completely different. He added that the G70 was created before he joins and since the GV80 came after him, it should reflect Genesis’s styling direction better.
He added that the new headlights and taillight design will be their signature and that the vehicles will be getting a new grille design. One thing to also note is that the Genesis might not be exclusively rear-wheel drive in the future so we can look forward to that as well.
