2022 Genesis G70 official Images revealed: Predictably Tasty

The G70 gets a similar look to it's elder brother, the G80 but we're not really complaining.

Genesis is Hyundai’s brand that deals in vehicles at the luxury end of the spectrum. That means Hyundai, ahem sorry, Genesis will be competing with the likes of well-established luxury brands, the likes of Audi, Mercedes and BMW and such, what this means is that if Genesis is to have a real chance to occupy any share of the market space, they’ve got to make their cars distinct, and quite Hyundai-ishly,  they have.

Say hello, to the G70. It bears a strong resemblance to its brothers; the G80 and the GV80 SUV. The G70 gets Genesis’ distinct (and quite large in fact) diamond-shaped grill because nothing spells luxury for Diamonds really, and some very seek looking headlamp and taillamp assemblies, characterised by two sleek bars stacked vertically and separated by a slim body-coloured panel. Overall, the Genesis gets a very Sporty look, with large air vents just below the grill in the front, muscular rear haunches, a boot lip spoiler shaped trunk design, and dual oval exhausts in the rear end. In fact, the silhouette reminds you a lot of that of the BMW 5 series from the side.

The interior features a driver-oriented design and hosts the latest in connectivity options. you’ve got a new 10.25-inch infotainment system, with OTA updates, Android Auto and Apple Carplay, and well, obviously Wireless Charging, it’s 2020!

The G70 will be powered by a familiar turbocharged 2.4 litre 4 cylinder which will produce 290-hp, replacing the outgoing model’s turbo 2.0 litre. There will also be a more powerful twin-turbocharged 3.5 litre V6 available as an option for people who prefer a little more umph in their Hyundai, ahem I mean, Genesis. However, Genesis has chosen to scrap the Manual transmission on the G70 for the 2022 model year.

The New G70 will also be available in a shooting brake (wagon) model and will go on sale in South Korea starting next month.
