Genesis G70 Review Australia | Features, Specification, Price

 

If you are looking for a small luxury sports sedan, it might be tempting to choose the 2021 Genesis G70. The Genesis G70 is a bona fide luxury sedan. It has a surprising level of performance, a nicely trimmed interior, and above-average seat and road comfort. The G70 Not only costs less, but it also comes with many incredible features to boot. It has a range of sedans, but the gem of the lineup is its 3.3T model. This model is powered by a robust turbocharged V6, which makes it a sports sedan through and through. Check out our review below to get our complete analysis of this year's G70 and decide if it's the right car for you.

 

Engine:

The Genesis G70 2021 comes with two carryover powertrains. The 2.0T model uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This engine produces 179 kW of power and 353 Nm of torque. The 3.3T model comes with an upgraded twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6. This engine produces 274 kW of power and 510 Nm of torque. It also has a new variable exhaust that provides an extra 2kW compared to last year's model. All models of  Genesis G70 in Australia come with rear-wheel drive. All these models use an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.

 

Exterior:

The  Genesis G70 brings a relatively fresh approach to the market. It is the best sedan for those who dare to be different but are still willing to pay for it. This new updated version of the Genesis G70 aligns with the rest of the model lineup in terms of design, technology, and equipment. The most apparent exterior changes include the Korean brand's new quad lamps design. This design provides it with a very familiar look to that seen on the  GV80, G80, and the upcoming and much-anticipated GV70. Another change is that the complete front and rear bumper and light assembly are now upgraded to what it was before.

 

Interior:

The interior is where the Genesis brand has the edge over the other brands. It has exceptional craftsmanship with beautiful leather, and throughout the cabin, there is an excellent use of colours. It incorporates dual screens that are both quick to respond to inputs and has super high resolution. The two displays to the side are legible and decent. The centre screen is 10.25-inch. The 3.3T models with the Luxury and Sport packs come with 12.3-inch 3D digital instruments. Genesis has also updated its Qi wireless charging system. It is now 15W, implying a much faster-charging output for modern phones like the iPhone 13.

 

The interior of the G70 is fantastic. The Sevilla Red interior is superb. The front seats of this sedan are comfortable and supportive. The second row of G70 is somewhat a tad cramped for tall passengers. Therefore much legroom should not be expected back there if you measure north of 175cm. The heated steering wheel will be excellent on a cold Sydney morning, but also, at the same time, the steering wheel does not match the sensation of the rest of the fantastic interior provided. But we can not say that it is bad because it really is good, but the rest of the interior is better.

CONS:

Final Verdict:

The G70 range is an incredible lineup Genesis. The lineup incorporates a small sports sedan that is somewhat similar to the BMW 3 Series. It would have been better if it had limited utility, a tight back seat, Hyundai-based infotainment technology, and subpar mileage. It still is fun to drive the car.
