2018 Genesis G70 Review & Changes – The 3rd model from Hyundai’s Genesis luxury brand has become spotted in prototype type. The car is a small sports sedan that will be called the G70. It will be a part of its larger G80 and G90 brothers and sisters in showrooms in late 2017, showing up as a 2018 model.
It had been previewed in March 2016 by the Genesis New York concept, although the manufacturing version appears to have the small resemblance to the stunning show car. The glasshouse appears comparable to the design of the Lexus IS although the rear looks like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Thankfully the extended hood and expansive dash-to-axle percentage of the concept stay.
The G70 gets into a populated section ruled by the BMW 3-Series and the previously mentioned C-Class, equally of which are servicing as benchmarks for the engineers, as confirmed in some of the shots. Other possible competitors include the Acura TLX, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Audi A4, Cadillac ATS, Infiniti Q50, Jaguar XE, Lexus IS, Lincoln MKZ and Volvo S60. To stay ahead of the group, Genesis will rely on value. This doesn’t necessarily indicate reduced pricing but rather ample warranty and maintenance strategies. Think 5-year new-vehicle guarantees, as well as a 10-year/100,000-distance powertrain extended warranties. Given the car’s very competitive established, assume rates to start in the middle-$30k bracket.
The G70 should also benefit from amazing dynamic qualities. Right, after all, aiding kind out the chassis is ex-BMW M design boss Albert Biermann. Rear-wheel drive will be standard but all-wheel drive will be accessible. The sole transmission will be an 8-speed automatic. In terms of powertrains, there should be a base model with an inline-4, probably turbocharged. A hybrid option combining the inline-4 with an electric motor should also be presented, as this is previewed in the New York concept that was rated at 241 horsepower. As well as at the top of the range need to be a G70 Sport packing a 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 excellent for about 365 hp.
