Genesis Australia is kicking off the momentum for their new GV70 SUV with a pre-order incentive for the first 100 customers. The offer isn’t currently being widely promoted, with the only mention on the GV70 product page. Our searches across social media and other sources don’t yield any results.
The pre-launch offer is a $1000 deposit match for the first 100 customers who pre-order, make an EOI payment by 22 March 2021, and take delivery of their new Genesis GV70 by 30 June 2021.
Interestingly, not much has been revealed about its launch here in Australia. The pricing and launch date is still to be confirmed. However, we assume that the launch window will be April or May, with pricing around the $70k AUD mark.
The Genesis GV70 is the next product to join the model line-up, following the new G80 sedan and GV80 SUV. Once it arrives it is set to compete against the likes of the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC, and Audi Q5.
There will be three engine choices, a 224kW 2.5L Turbo, a 279kW 3.5L V6 Twin Turbo, and a 154kW 2.2L Diesel. AWD and RWD options haven’t been specified yet, but we suspect it will mirror the GV80 where the 3.5L V6 features the AWD system as standard.
Each type is available in the Sport Package as well, which exclusively offers features such as the Electronic Limited Slip Differential (e-LSD) system and includes Sport-exclusive wheels to boost its remarkable off’-road driving performance.
From what we’ve seen in the G80, GV80 and photos of the GV70 we’re expecting the high-quality interior appointments and features to be plentiful.
“The audaciously designed new GV70 breaks new ground for Genesis through purity of design execution. This follows the Genesis G80 and GV80 which demonstrated the perfect balance of our design identity ‘Athletic Elegance’said SangYup Lee, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Genesis Design.
In addition to its tech like self-parking via the key, a new Fingerprint Authentication System which will be connected to the in-car payment service ‘Genesis CarPlay’. How that will work and what it will be useful here in Aus is something we’ll have to wait to learn.
We’ll bring more info as we get more information on the upcoming GV70. In the meantime, are you looking forward to it?
