Author: |

Genesis has recently introduced a mid-cycle refresh for its captivating GV70 SUV, set to debut in South Korea this May before its global release. While the overall exterior design of the new iteration maintains a strong resemblance to its predecessor, there have been subtle refinements. Notably, a fresh dual-weave mesh front grille and Two-Line headlights incorporating the brand’s latest MLA technology enhance the frontal aesthetics. Additionally, a new skid plate has been integrated into the front end.

Among the exterior updates for the 2026 GV70 are newly designed 19-inch dark hyper silver wheels, relocated rear turn signals now housed within the taillights, a revised rear spoiler, and reshaped exhaust finishers. These modifications contribute to a refreshed appearance.

Inside the vehicle, significant changes have been implemented. Following the lead of the refreshed GV80, the new GV70 opts for a unified, 27-inch display, replacing the separate digital instrument cluster and infotainment screen found in the outgoing model. The elliptical climate control screen has been replaced with a simpler rectangular display, although Genesis maintains the elliptical theme by incorporating it into the design of the air vents.

A new steering wheel, akin to the one featured in the 2025 GV80, has been installed, and adjustments have been made to the ambient lighting system. The GV70 Sport variant receives further enhancements, including a distinctive G-Matrix Crest Grille, enlarged air intakes, 21-inch dark metallic wheels, and dark chrome rear diffuser and muffler tips. Inside, it boasts a unique steering wheel and orange contrast stitching, adding to its sporty appeal.

While Genesis has yet to disclose specific powertrain details for the 2026 GV70, it is anticipated that the same engine options from the previous model will be available. These include a 2.2-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel, a 2.5-liter turbo four-cylinder petrol, and a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6. It is also likely that the GV70 Electrified variant will receive similar updates to its internal combustion engine counterparts.
