The wait for Genesis’ first SUV is almost over as we’re nearing the GV80’s world debut which will most likely happen at the LA Auto Show next month.

The fact that the launch is just around the corner is obvious in the new camouflage adopted by 2020 GV80 prototypes. One of them was spotted at the Nürburgring with a tight fit camouflage covering the final production body, giving us the best look yet at Korea’s upcoming premium midsize SUV.

Looking like a toned down version of the GV80 Concept, the production model adopts very similar horizontal headlights and taillights consisting of two parallel elements. The proportions are similar to the namesake concept as well, albeit less athletic and more massive.

The third lateral window is fully covered by camouflage tape but a closer look reveals a triangular outline reminiscent of the GV80 Concept. In these photos, the Genesis GV80 does not appear to be fully in its element negotiating the treacherous Nordschleife.

This should come as no surprise, since we’re talking about a massive SUV that’s 4,945-mm long, 1,975-mm wide and 1,715-mm high. Therefore, it will need powerful engines and the good news is it will get them.

Earlier this week, Genesis confirmed a lineup of three powertrains for GV80: turbocharged Smartstream G2.5 T-GDi 2.5-liter four-cylinder and Smartstream G3.5 T-GDi 3.5-liter V6 gasoline units, plus a Smartstream D3.0 3.0-liter straight-six diesel. The four-cylinder delivers 304 PS (300 HP) while the V6 produces 380 PS (375 HP). The diesel is said to offer 278 PS (274 HP) but it will probably not be available in the United States. A new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic will also be part of the lineup.

The 2020 Genesis GV80 is the first of three SUVs to be launched by the Korean luxury brand, including a compact GV70 and an unspecified model.

not bad looking even with camo on. :D

Somehow the look reminds me of XC 90 and Bentayga.

Why need to test a big luxury SUV at Nurburgring??

Testing it 3.5 V6 engine, which is good for 380ps horsepower? Have to say the spec look quite good on paper, while the rest would be it handling, which maybe the Hyundai's engineers are trying to find out, by letting it run a little wilder on  Nürburgring?

Its SUVs and crossover craze worldwide these days. You should know by now that nobody buy sedans or hatches these days. This is why sedans are dying fast and you see big companies eg Ford and GM dropping most of their sedans lineup except their sports cars.

And since large heavy SUVs are less agile and ride poorly by default, it is up to the engineers to make changes to it so that a 2-2.5 ton SUV can handle as well as your hot Type R. 

Its the golden age actually, more power, more brakes, ultra tough suspension etc. All these are what motoring is all about... Fuel economy... who needs that... :D
