2019 Genesis G70
The 2019 Genesis G70 high-end compact sedan pitches the nascent Hyundai brand into a turf war with cars like the 3-Series and C-Class. With the G70, Genesis isn’t simply sending out a message; they’re going straight to the bed mattress. The G70 raids the Kia Stinger’s closet for parts and labor to tackle new rivals such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi by themselves turf.
When it goes on sale later on in 2018, the 2019 G70 will count on a 252-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo-4 or 365-hp 3.3-liter turbocharged V-6 for motivation, coupled with an 8-speed automatic with paddle shifters or a 6-speed manual. The latter is a surprise– Audi and Mercedes quit their 3rd pedal in the States like the guy bun– and one of the key differences from the Stinger.
2019 Genesis G70 Design
The G70’s style follows closely the bigger G80, at least in broad strokes. What’s new? The G70’s strongly formed lower front bumper, nose and front fenders apply for the new sedan’s performance credentials. Open consumptions, strakes, and lighting pinch toward a six-sided mesh grille. The G70 has the exact same short front overhang, like the G80, and a creased hood that bookends the winged Genesis badge. In profile, the Stinger’s long hood is echoed by the G70, while boomerang-shaped trim includes visual drama to the body of the little Genesis that learns more “upstart” than “facility.”.
The G70’s body sides listed below the windows play with daylight more than the G80 and blue-haired G90; above the fold it takes the G80’s lead, by our eyes. The tail end tapers towards a trunk cover turned up slightly for a stylish appearance.
2019 Genesis G70 Interior
Inside, the G70 is awash in quilted leather and horizontal lines along the dash. Genesis hasn’t yet comprehensive trim levels for the G70, however it’s likely that even base models will wear artificial hides with contrast stitching in multiple tones.
2019 Genesis G70 Engine
The 2.0-liter turbo-4 is the only way to get rear-wheel drive or a 6-speed handbook (they need to come together), and the 3.3-liter comes standard with rear-wheel drive and an 8-speed with paddle shifters. All-wheel drive is offered with both engines. Launch control is standard on all models and while Genesis hasn’t defined efficiency figures, comparable powertrains in the Kia Stinger handle an added to 60 mph in less than six seconds with the turbo-4 and less than five seconds in the V-6.
2019 Genesis G70 Features
Some versions of the G70 will get a limited-slip differential for much better cornering and control, and uprated Brembos are offered for shorter stops. All G70s get front struts and a rear multi-link suspension setup tuned for a canyon workout.
Compared to the Stinger, the G70 is nearly 3 inches shorter in between the wheels and almost half a foot more compact, bumper to bumper. Compared to the Audi A4, BMW 3-Series, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the G70 is sized within two inches in a lot of dimensions. (Eds: Splitting hairs or splitting beneficiaries?).
Genesis hasn’t yet detailed exactly what features the 2019 G70 will have when it goes on sale later on this year, however a 15-speaker Lexicon audio system, nappa leather, 19-inch wheels with summertime tires, and uprated brakes are all on the options list. Active safety features, 18-inch wheels, and Genesis’ concierge services are all most likely standard.
2019 Genesis G70 Price
Genesis hasn’t yet announced what does it cost? the G70 will cost, however like the G80 and G90 before it, we expect it to undercut rivals by thousands.
