Genesis continues its charge of luxury with the, and this compact model offers great value with its starting price of $ 42,045. That’s after a destination fee of $ 1045, mind you. All comes standard with all-wheel drive and Genesis puts a 2.5-liter turbo-four under the hood, good for 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard across the board.
That’s not all. Heated seats, a hands-free tailgate, power-adjustable front and passenger seats, a 14.5-inch touchscreen, fingerprint recognition, and a live update feature are all found in the base model. Plus, an 8-inch digital gauge cluster is standard, as are leatherette upholstery, dual-zone air conditioning, 18-inch wheels, and LED headlights and taillights. It’s a lot to list, but seriously, it’s worth saying because the list of baked equipment is very impressive.
Spend $ 4,000 more and that puts you in the GV70 Select, which adds a panoramic roof, 19-inch wheels, ventilated front seats and a 16-speaker Lexicon audio system, and more. The GV70 Advanced version is based on the Select version, for a total of $ 8,150 compared to the basic version. This unlocks genuine leather upholstery, ambient lighting, a heated steering wheel and a whole host of driver assistance functions, intelligent remote parking assistance.
At the top of the line is the GV70 Sport Prestige, which costs $ 53,795. It is a fully loaded model, with giant 21-inch wheels, sporty touches such as its aluminum trim and alloy pedals, a digital key and a driving assistant on the road.
For those who need the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, you start over with the GV70 Standard trim, but the price rises to $ 53,645 to start. However, Genesis also mixes other standard products with the V6 engine, such as an electronically controlled suspension, the “Sport Appearance” look of the turbo-four’s Sport Prestige trim and genuine leather. The Sport Prestige trim on the V6 model is the true top-of-the-line GV70 that sells for $ 62,500. Here, buyers unlock exclusives like a 12.3-inch digital groupset, carbon fiber trim, heated second-row seats, and sun visors.
Overall, the prices are quite on par with the German rivals the GV70 is targeting, such as the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC and Audi Q5. We still don’t have a launch date for the SUV, but if you’re interested, Genesis is taking reservations right now.
