Hyundai's luxury brand Genesis unveiled its first SUV on Wednesday. The GV80 is capable of automatic lane-change, and other high-tech functions.
It is not environmentally friendly, which may limit its appeal in the long run.
The five-seater with rear-wheel-drive comes with a 3.0-liter diesel engine and a four-wheel-drive model seating seven is also available.
Motorists will have to fork out W65.8 million for the basic model, rising to over W80 million depending on options (US$1=W1,158).
The carmaker said a gasoline version will be also released in the future, but no hybrid or electric versions appear to be on the horizon.
Hyundai hopes to expand global awareness of the Genesis brand with the GV80. Launched in 2015, Genesis currently sells cars in the U.S., Canada, Russia, the Middle East and Russia, where fat gas-guzzlers offend few people.
