2021 Genesis GV70 revealed: Luxury medium-sized SUV bound for Australia
Emerging Korean luxury marque Genesis continues to grow its portfolio, with the medium-sized 2021 GV70 SUV revealed today after months of speculation.
The GV70 will become the fifth model in the global Genesis lineup, along with the the bigger GV80 SUV and G70, G80 and G90 sedans.
Likely to seat only five, the GV70 will compete with the likes of Mercedes's GLC, BMW's X3 and Audi's Q5.
UPDATE: Following our earlier look at the new 2021 Genesis GV70 as it lapped the Nurburgring (shown in this story in the black-and-white vinyl camouflage), a new prototype has appeared in South Korea with a heavy canvas camouflage.
The latest spy photos don't offer a great deal of detail, but it is clear we can expect to see the same new two-row lighting design at both ends, as recently revealed on the new G80 sedan and GV80 SUV, and spied on the upcoming G70 facelift.
Next generation Kia Stinger under a cloud – report
There may not be a second generation of the Kia Stinger, a report from Korean Car Blog has claimed.
It is the second time in less than 12 months the long term future of the turbocharged sports sedan has been questioned.
Last year CarAdvice reported Kia was undecided on whether it would build a successor to the current Stinger.
The Kia Stinger is a popular choice in Australia among former owners of Holden Commodore V8 and Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo sedans, and has sold well locally.
Genesis has taken first place in J.D. Power’s 2020 Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) in the marque’s first year of inclusion in the study.
J.D. Power is a United States-based automotive consumer analytics and car reviewing publication that devised the VDS to focus on vehicle dependability in a more practical time frame of vehicle ownership.
