2021 Genesis GV70 Configurator Reveals Some Stunning Options

Luxury / Comments

But there's a catch...

The Genesis GV70 has just been unveiled with loads of tech meant to outshine legacy luxury marques like Audi and BMW. With the new fingerprint feature, this is an SUV that is looking to break ground in terms of design, tech, and luxury. It hasn't all been smooth sailing for the new vehicle though, as its fuel economy figures suggest that it's a rather thirsty machine. Nevertheless, it's still a highly attractive offering, and with Genesis now opening the configurator to the public, we played around online to see what's available. Unfortunately, individual options aren't allowed, so you can't pick and choose as you please.

Two models are on offer: 2.5T and 3.5T, denoting engine size. The first is available in Standard, Select, Advanced, and Sport Prestige trim levels. The base model rides on 18-inch alloys and features full LED quad headlights, and comes with all the usual advanced driver aids, a 12-way power driver's seat, and an 8-inch digital instrument cluster.

As you go up the range, more features are unlocked, but let's have a look at what we can spec on the top 3.5T variant. With this model, you get Standard, Sport Advanced, and Sport Prestige trim options. The latter gets 21-inch wheels, heated rear seats, and tri-zone climate control as standard.

Other features include things like an electronic limited-slip differential, Napa leather seats with suede inserts, carbon fiber trim accents, rear side sunshades, acoustic rear glass, a head-up display, and a 12.3-inch 3D digital cluster. This is an upgrade from the mid-level trim's leatherette accents, but both models get a Lexicon Premium sound system with 16 speakers.

It's a pity that we can't see pricing, as this makes it difficult to see which model offers the best value, but at least if you're one of the American customers looking to buy, Genesis is making the process very simple. We'd still prefer a little more freedom of choice though.
