Genesis GV80 Coming To The U.S. This Summer

The Genesis GV80 sport-utility vehicle, based on a rear-wheel-drive platform with allwheel drive optional, is powered by either a 2.5-liter or 3.5-liter engine in the North American market, each paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive models will be equipped with electronically controlled Limited Slip Differential at the rear axle. The GV80 will have Road Active Noise Cancellation technology, which reduces road noise while driving. GV80 features Smart Cruise Control with Machine Learning that enables GV80 to independently learn the driving characteristics of its drivers and implement autonomous driving similar to that of human drivers. Other driver assist and saftey components include Highway Driving Assist II including lane change when the turn signal is used, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist to help automatically bring GV80 to a stop if there is a risk of collision with an approaching vehicle on the left or right side of the intersection. GV80 is also able to detect potential collision risks if a pedestrian is in close proximity to the vehicle while in motion. Also standard are Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist and Driver Attention Alert Warning that monitors the driver’s attention when driving, by analyzing driving patterns and behaviors, including intermittent steering and unnatural deceleration, through vehicle signals, such as steering angle and steering torque and vehicle position in traffic lane. GV80 will arrive at retailers this Summer.
