Genesis has revealed images of the new Genesis G70, prior to going on sale in Korea next month. Launched globally in 2017, the luxury sports sedan has an athletic design, dynamic driving performance and leading safety features.
Since launching the sports sedan has attracted a myriad of notable achievements including the 2019 North American Car of the Year, 2018 Good Design Award (Transportation Design Division) and Top Safety Pick+ recognition from the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
The new Genesis G70 features enhancements which focus on an athletic exterior design evolution, a driver-centred interior and state-of-the-art technology update leveraging features found within the Genesis line-up.
The signature crest grill set even lower than the Quad Lamps which spread outward evokes a sprinter’s pre-race posture and highlights the new Genesis G70’s position, as the most athletic sports sedan by Genesis.
In profile, side air extractors optimised for efficiency, show a form-follows-function mentality while the sensuous surface around the front wheels expresses the powerful muscles of a sports sedan.
Rearward, Quad Lamp taillights inspired by the soaring wings of the Genesis logo, clearly identifies with a distinctive Genesis aesthetic. The full width G-Matrix mesh and body coloured diffusers surround the oval exhaust tips add finishing touches to the exterior design.
The interior leverages a driver-centred architecture resembling a fighter jet cockpit and adds the latest connectivity specifications.
To provide a seamless user experience, a new 10.25-inch infotainment system features an exclusive Genesis UI design supporting the latest over-the-air (OTA, Wi-Fi update feature) wireless updates, Valet mode and CarPay. In addition, the wireless charging system has been changed to a horizontal layout, increasing convenience for those with ever-changing smartphone sizes.
"The new Genesis G70 will engage customers with its dynamic design and the latest innovations in safety and luxury," a Genesis spokesperson said. "We are thrilled to reveal more detailed specifications next month."
The new G70 sports sedan will launch locally in the first half of 2021. The Australian model line-up and specification will be announced closer to launch.
