This time with the GV70 it enters directly into one of the hottest categories of the luxury and luxury car market - the mid-range crossovers / Jeeps - a group from which every manufacturer with ambitions has one representative or another.

The Mercedes GLC, Audi Q5, Volvo XC60 and BMW X3 are just a very partial list.

The exterior design continues with the manufacturer's hallmarks that are hard to ignore: a huge, meshed grille on the front and narrow lighting units on the sides.

Its dimensions are generous with 472 cm from end to end, width of 191 cm, height of 163 cm, wheelbase of 288 cm and trunk of 542 liters.

In most sections he is the greatest or one of the greatest in his group.

The cabin dominates an elliptical motif in the design and the GV70 also gets the latest versions of the control systems like the dial-joystick-touchpad in the console between the seats and more. The multimedia system is displayed on a large 14.5-inch screen and the 12.3-inch dashboard - here too, sizes are unusual compared to competitors.

The GV70 currently comes in two "luxury" and "sports" trim levels, each with differentiation and features that meet exactly what they are called - from the exterior appearance, cabin and more. Either way they offer a long, but really long, armature list. 19-inch rims (or 21-inch in the sports finish level), full leather, massage for the driver's seat, heating and equipment for the seats, climate control with 3 air conditioning areas and we are only warming up, we have not yet talked about three-layer windshield insulation, semi-active engine mounts and the list It goes a long way and makes the entry-level versions of the more established competitors more indescribable than embarrassing.

Another "elegant" finish level will be added later and will be the entry-level version.

However, it is also very well equipped in relation to the entry-level versions of the old luxury brands.

Its equipment list will include 19-inch rims, mood lighting, electric and heated driver and passenger seats, a panoramic window, split climate control, and an electric trunk.

But gives up the Lexicon audio system, double glazing for acoustic insulation, ventilation and massage for the front seats and more.

The list of safety systems includes, among other things, automatic braking, lane departure correction, steering assistance to avoid an obstacle, "dead space" vehicle warning (including video display on the dashboard), cross-traffic warning, radar-based anti-child warning system (as opposed to sensor-based systems And less sensitivity), 8 airbags when the eighth is between the driver and passenger and more.

The GV70 has a 2.5-liter turbo engine, four-cylinder that produces 304 hp and 43 kg.

Dual propulsion and a planetary gearbox with 8 transmission ratios propel it to 100 km / h in 6.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 240 km / h.

In terms of propulsion and driving systems there are small differences between the two versions in which it is currently marketed as the "Sport" gets adaptive shocks, "Sport +" mode in the driving mode selector (which partially eliminates traction control and more).

The price card and the service card (Photo: Manufacturer's website)

As with the rest of the brand's models, here too customers receive the Genesis service package which includes a personal customer service manager available 24/7, collection, parking of a replacement vehicle and returning the car from care, 3 years of periodic treatments at no cost and more.

Prices for the GV70 start at NIS 339,000 for the elegant finish level, the luxury finish level costs NIS 379,000 and the sports finish level will cost NIS 399,000.

This is a price tag that starts at NIS 20,000-30,000 lower than the entry-level prices of competitors that come with a significantly lower level of finish.

All this is happening in one of the turbulent and costly demand categories in the car market in general and the luxury category, boring will not be here.
