Genesis G70 revealed, on sale early 2018

Genesis G70 revealed, on sale early 2018”

"We launched the G70 to complete the Genesis sedan lineup and meet growing customer needs in the market", said Yang Woong-cheol, vice chairman of Hyundai Motor in charge of research and development, in a preview event held at the carmaker's Namyang R&D Center, southwest of Seoul.

South Korea's Hyundai Motor Co.'s luxury Genesis sub-brand unveiled its entry-level G70 sedan Friday to make its presence felt in the fast growing segment, which is now led by premium European marques, such as BMW's 3 series and the Mercedes-Benz C-class. It takes everything Genesis has learned with the larger G80 and G90 sedans and improves upon it. Genesis has confirmed we'll see it in the United States in early 2018, as a 2019 model.

Sharing powertrains with the Stingers means the G70 will likely offer a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder in base form, almost a pre-requisite for the compact luxury segment.

Engine options are expected to be shared between the two models and the images confirm this particular auto has a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 engine. The video also confirms the G70 will sport the same twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V-6 that the Stinger offers, which generates 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque under the Kia badge. Both engines will be connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system.

The quickest of the bunch is clearly the V-6 model which Genesis claims can run from 0-62 miles per hour in 4.7 seconds and top out at 167 miles per hour.

Enhancing the performance status, launch control, rack-mounted, motor driven power steering, multi-link rear suspension, dynamic torque vectoring and a limited slip differential have been fitted.
