    Front looks better but those headlights look like rear tail lights off a Mercedes
    MB has to be a little ticked off at Hyundai as they have totally ripped off MB for a lot of their Genesis exterior design cues. Everytime a new or refreshed MB sedan is revealed the first thing you see is a flood of comments like "nice Genesis" or "looks like a Genesis".

    That's basically their design language though. Copy Mercedes and other high-end brands, and let the general population think you're driving something worth twice as much. Seems to be working for them though. They are the Racing Point of car manufacturers.

    The rear is very similar to MB. The difference is they're split into two separate housings. Their two line theme was created back in 2016 with the creation of the GV80 concept.

    Does anyone else think the original G70 headlights / front end looked way better than these quad headlights?

    I really like the original G70 design

    Yes the original is killer. This new one still has to grow on me. Still not digging the tail light placement. Should be more flat like the G80.

    I was there last week. Both looked good, but this was my first time sitting in pre production vehicles so that ruined it a bit since there were pieces that were cracked and peeling and switches that just didn't feel right (more so on the GV80 than the G80 likely because it has been around longer).

    Overall though, I am afraid I won't be able to buy the GV80 because it doesn't look like it will be available to tow. And for $85K, I think I would rather a Q7. I will wait until spring though and drive a few options to make my final decision.

    "Going to take on the Lexus RX"??? That's not a large SUV and it's tens of thousands less than the Hyundai.
    So, is the rest of the article as inaccurate?
    This thing better be deep in the Lexus GX territory and bordering LX for that price.

    It's competing in the mid size class with the x5 and GLE. I still think the price is a little on the higher side tho. GV90, whenever it gets developed, will be their full size SUV. That one should crack the CAD$100k mark. GV70 is their small SUV coming out sooner than later. Their focus should have been SUV's right from the get go when they split from Hyundai. Would have seen them way more established than they are.

    That is what Genesis Canada is claiming as well, but there will be no factory installed hitch or wiring. I am not going aftermarket and having a hideous hitch hanging under the bumper. I want something better built in and concealed like other SUV's in its class.
