One of the most significant 2023 Genesis GV60 features is the lack of shared body panels with other EVs built on the E-GMP platform. This platform is shared with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6. We could have seen shared body panels for all three models, but the Hyundai Auto Group did a masterful job of ensuring each electric SUV brings a unique personality and style to the market.

2. Your face is the key to driving pleasure

This Genesis SUV is advanced enough to read your face and utilize this information as the key for your vehicle. All you’ve got to do is walk out to the B-pillar and allow the camera to read your face. Once this information is verified, the doors unlock and off you go. Just don’t end up in the scenarios we saw in the movies Face/Off or Silence of the Lambs.

This allows the SUV to have a smooth, uninterrupted appearance that’s pretty easy to admire You can play a game of finding the cameras with your friends, but you’ll need to know where they are first.

4. Modular headlights in this Genesis SUV keep costs down
