Australian market GV70 specs are available.
In total, Genesis will offer four variants in the GV70: the entry-level 2.5T, the 2.5T AWD, the 2.2D AWD, and the range-topping 3.5T AWD Sport.

Opening the GV70 range is the 2.5T, which is powered by a 2.5-litre turbo petrol four-cylinder engine sending 224kW of power and 422Nm of torque to the rear wheels, while the 2.5T AWD is, as the name hints, offered in all-wheel drive.

The mid-range variant is the GV70 2.2D AWD, which sends 154kW/440Nm to all four wheels from an all-aluminium 2.2-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder engine.

At the top of the range, the GV70 3.5T AWD is powered by a 3.5-litre twin-turbo petrol V6, producing 279kW/530Nm. Power is also sent to all four wheels, but is paired with an rear electro-mechanical limited-slip differential to aid grip.

The entire GV70 line-up is fitted with an eight-speed automatic transmission, found across the current Genesis range.

All variants will be available with the optional 'Luxury Package', with all but the flagship model offered with the optional 'Sport Line Package' – though it's worth noting the 3.5T AWD comes standard with many of the features offered in the Sport Line Package.

Thanks for posting that. I've been having trouble finding the numbers, though right after seeing this thread, I found some of them on genesis.ca. Still haven't found the Interior and Volume numbers elsewhere, only here.

We're still only at the point of seeing what's comfortable, and what has decent/useful cargo capacity. Very disappointed to see 1610 L for max cargo on the GV70, I had set my minimum at 1800 L for being considered (totally arbitrary, 1900 L would probably be more realistic but I didn't want to be too constraining without seeing how it's arranged). GV70 made the cut because I couldn't find the number. :) Still need Hip room (F/R), and a few Y/N questions for my spreadsheet. Maybe the dealer will know.

I have to admit the GV70 is the most expensive I'm looking at, I also set a max of C$55K MSRP on my first-pass survey of the market, in addition to a few key features as well as meeting some sizing and capacity specs. I ended up with some upscale makers' bottom-end, and some mainstream makers' top-end (and a few mid-range if I compromise on less-critical features). Nothing ticks all the boxes, and I don't think spending more would do it though I may revisit the C$55K MSRP constraint. But we're plugging away and eventually will settle on something.

When they recommend "Unleaded/Premium", do they mean 91 or 93 octane? Unless Premium and Supreme are strict industry standards (I think they mean 91 and 93), they should be specifying an actual number. 93 is hard to get up here (only some stations sell anything over 91: ex-Sunoco (now Petrocan) in ON, and some Petrocan in QC. Dealer said the GV70 will run on regular but with inferior results, that Premium is just a recommendation (for my Forester I think it was mandatory). Is that actually okay as a full-time thing, or is it like my current oil "if you have to, you can put in 5W30 but do an oil change to 0W20 ASAP"?

Thanks.

I have emailed Genesis two weeks ago, specifically regarding this for the 2.5T and have yet to receive a response. My guess is that they haven't finalized details for the 2.5T and do not want to quote anything in writing before the car lands here.

Notice it is "recommend" not "required" as on cars such as the German competition. So dealer sounds about right but still nice to get it in writing. From what is gathered on the GV80 (as they have same drivetrains), it can run on regular (as in 87 octane) with lower horsepower and worse economy which unless you are tracking or on long distance drives, would not be noticeable. Figured if the 2.5T makes 300hp on 93, then I can accept 250hp on 87 as it is my daily cruiser, not looking for that performance edge here. One thing for sure is to stick with the gasoline grade on as a "full-time thing" and not switch to different grades every fill up.

If anyone can shed more light on this, please and thanks

The manual says

FUEL REQUIREMENTS: Your new vehicle is designed to obtain maximum performance with UNLEADED FUEL, as well as minimize exhaust emissions and spark plug fouling. For the optimal vehicle performance, we recommend you use unleaded gasoline which has an octane number ((R+M)/2) of 91 (Research Octane Number 95) or higher.
NOTICE Using unleaded gasoline that is lower than octane number ((R+M)/2) of 91 (Research Octane Number 95) could result in loss of engine power and increase fuel consumption.
and a bunch of the usual warnings about no methanol, max 15% ethanol, no E85, etc.
