Genesis motors in India

Hyundai has already brought Kia in last year. The automotive landscape will certainly change post-Corona-crisis and everyone will have to recalibrate their plans and approach as the economy is expected to take a hit and recover over time.

Genesis’ India will most probably be led by their all-new upcoming SUV, the GV70. This 5-seater luxury SUV will compete in the Mercedes-Benz GLC – Audi Q5 – BMW X3 segment and is expected to debut by the end of 2020 since it will be launched as a 2021 model.
