2021 Genesis Gv80

2021 Genesis Gv80 Bares It All On Instagram

Genesis is nearly done turning the GV80 concept it unveiled during the 2017 New York Auto Show into a production model. It’s tentatively scheduled to make its debut during the 2020 edition of the event, but low-resolution spy shots posted on Instagram have given us an early look at the SUV.

Uploaded by user Allcarnews, the photos look like they were taken in one of the Hyundai-owned brand’s storage or testing facilities. They suggest the aforementioned design study accurately previewed the model, though its styling has evolved during the transition from a concept to a production car. The headlights look bigger, which isn’t surprising considering how small the concept’s were, and the grille has grown in size. The new look brings the GV80 in line with the recently-updated G90, the flagship of the Genesis range, without simply copying its face and pasting it onto an SUV.

The proportions don’t change much, but the rear end received comprehensive modifications. On the concept, the rear lights were pairs of thin, horizontal LEDs shaped like the ones up front. On the production model, they look like much bigger units that stretch well into the quarter panels.
