The Genesis GV80, the luxury marque's first crossover, has been leaked ahead of its anticipated official unveiling some time this month.

These photos, seemingly taken inside one of Hyundai's factories, was posted on Korean website AutoPost.

As we've seen in earlier spy photos, the GV80 will keep many of the design elements from the 2017 concept car, such as the twin headlight and tail-light strips.

UPDATE, Jan 15 2020: The GV80 has now been revealed in full. Details and official images here.

Unlike the concept, the production vehicle looks as though it will feature less fluid surfacing. It also adopts the brand's large pentagonal grille.

The cabin also draws heavily from the 2017 show car. While the overall dashboard design is very similar, the crossover heading to showrooms will have significantly more buttons and dials switches to play with.

The lower dash features a pod for the climate control system, while the centre tunnel is home to a transmission dial and controls for the infotainment system.

A report last month indicated the GV80 will be available globally with two petrol engines: a 226kW 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, and a 283kW/529Nm 3.5-litre turbo V6.

Some markets will also receive a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel inline-six with 207kW of power and 588Nm of torque.

While other Asian luxury brands use front- and all-wheel drive architectures for their crossover models, Genesis has decided to take the German marques head on as the GV80 looks to be based on a rear- and all-wheel drive platform.
