– The new G70 strengthens brand identity, aligning all models with the Genesis current “Athletic Elegance” design philosophy.
– It also receives the new 10.25-inch touchscreen display – like the one found in the GX70
– We’re also gaining a new drive mode and sensory-focused improvements for the 2022 G70
You have a few different powertrain options with the G70 including a 2.0-liter turbo engine in both AWD and RWD. this pushes 252-hp and 260 torque. You also have a 3.3-liter turbo V6 pushing 368 hp, and 375 torque also available in RWD or AWD.
The one we’re diving has that turbocharged V6 under the hood and has ample power for this sporty, compact executive sedan. The interior is great as well, it’s nice and luxurious, especially with that big screen up on the dash. The seats and driving position were good for our short drive but I could easily see spending much more time in this car.
The base price for the G70 is $37,775 – the tester we drove had an MSRP of $51,445. It competes with the likes of the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 or Cadillac CT4. All in all, I think it’s a great car. I’ve been looking forward to driving one ever since seeing it launched and ever since driving the Kia Stinger which is a sister car to this. In this short drive, it didn’t disappoint. Of course, I’d love to get more seat time with the G70 and do a full review on it. If you’d like to see that as well, leave me a comment below so I can bug Genesis to make it happen.
