Genesis G70 2020 – “younger” from sedans Genesis


The new luxury sedan Genesis G70 2019-2020 is presented on September 15 at the Hyundai Design Center in the Korean Namyane. The novelty became the third and last sedan in the lineup of cars of the young premium brand, making the company a larger four-door G80 and G90 . In the near future, the company expects to bring the number of its models to six, bringing to the market two crossover and one large coupe. But this is in the future, now preparations for the start of sales Genesis Ji 70, which will be available in the native Korean market from September 20, are in full swing. Price fork is already known – $ 36,000 (just over 2 million rubles) will cost a base sedan with a diesel engine, about 46 thousand dollars (2.6 million rubles) will be given for the most complete version with top engine V6.

On the Russian market, “seventy” Genesis, according to preliminary data, will be announced in early 2019. Approximately at the same time, the model will go on sale in the US and the countries of the Middle East, and a little later it will reach Europe. Here it will try to compete with BMW 3-series , Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class . It will not be easy to do, but still the G70 has much to lure potential customers. Among the novelties’ strengths we distinguish an incredibly stylish and dynamic body, a chic salon with a mass of high-tech equipment, an abundance of driver assistance systems, three modern turbo-motors with different traction characteristics. In this review we will present photos, complete sets and prices, technical data of the new Genesis G70 2019-2020 – a premium four-door that promises to drive rustle in the D-class.

Charismatic and hazardous appearance

With its graceful appearance, the new Genesis is wholly and entirely due to the chief designer Luke Donkervolke, who came from Volkswagen and who at one time had a hand in the creation of Bentley Bentayga . The new creation of the Belgian, perhaps, deserves only words of praise. The front sedan flaunts a solid shield falshradiatora with coarse mesh, an impressive bumper with an original configuration of air intakes and compact headlights with dual headlights with running lights.

The aft part of the car attracts the attention of a small, narrowed down, trunk lid with its crowned filigree spoiler, large lanterns with bright and unusual LED graphics, a powerful bumper with a pronounced diffuser and organically inscribed on both sides of the exhaust pipes of the exhaust system.

The profile of the new Genesis G70 is typical of classical, but at the same time extremely precise and elegant, outlines. The sports character of the models is emphasized by a short front overhang, a long hood, a streamlined roof dome with an antenna-fin, raised forage. On the side panels of the eye catches a horizontal line of punching under the window sill, dazzling ventilation slots in the form of boomerangs behind the front wings, graceful shells of mirrors on thin legs. In the wheel arches, 19-inch wheels with five pairs of spokes and a low-profile Michelin rubber of 225/40 ZR19 size feel great.

The color palette of the body of the novelty Genesis includes such shades as Carbon Metal, Platinum Silver, Marble White, Umber Brown, Lapis Blue, Racing Gray, Titanium Black, Graceful Gray, Royal Blue and Blazing Red.

The external dimensions of the G70 do not differ much from the size of other representatives of the D-class. In length the car has 4685 mm, in width – 1850 mm, in height – 1400 mm. The wheelbase of the car is 2835 mm.

Completion and interior decoration schemes

In the salon of the “younger” Genesis there are all the attributes of the premium sports sedan. The two front seats are in the cockpit format separated by a wide tunnel, the low-set front seats have a tenacious grip, the center console is deployed to the driver, the compact steering wheel is equipped with characteristic tides in the grip area. Finishing materials, of course, only high quality – soft plastics, genuine Nappa leather, polished aluminum. There are up to seven saloon variants: five standard (Sandstorm Gray, Obsidian Black, Vanilla Beige, Velvet Burgundy and Tobacco Brown) and two “sports” (Sports Gray and Sports Red).

Salon of the new model

The multimedia system of the new G70 relies the most that neither is fancy. It has an 8-inch touchscreen, popular interfaces for the integration of smartphones (MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto), voice recognition technology using the platform of artificial intelligence Kakao. A few do not correspond to the specified equipment bar except that the analog instrument panel, composed of two classic dials and a color screen of the bortcomputer. Virtually all competitors, as we know, in the arsenal there is a digital “assembly”. However, the producer of Genesis deliberately does not switch to virtual scales, especially since their usual analogs look and are read no worse.

Instrument cluster

Having stopped its choice on the Korean novelty, the buyer will get almost unlimited possibilities in the choice of options. In the top models, front seats with electric adjustments and ventilation / massage functions are available, electric steering column, projection screen, Active Sound Design (creates a background sound corresponding to the current driving mode and load on the engine), advanced Lexicon speakers with 15 speakers, nine airbags.

New Genesis G70 developers have ordered a set of active safety systems Genesis Active Safety Control. It combines emergency braking (it recognizes not only vehicles and pedestrians, but also cyclists), monitoring “blind” zones, monitoring the driver’s fatigue and a number of other assistants. In addition, the car is equipped with an active hood, which rises when the pedestrian hits and thus absorbs the impact energy.
