2022 Genesis G70 Wagon

2022 Genesis G70 Wagon

Wagons like the Volkswagen Arteon and Peugeot 508 GT have carved out a small niche for themselves as being a classy, luxurious station wagon with loads of technology, safety and comfort for a price that is similar or undercutting anything similar from the big luxury brands of BMW, Audi, and Mercedes.  With the arrival of a super-stylish wagon in the form of the 2022 Genesis G70 Wagon (also known as Shooting Brake), their cut of the pie just got a little smaller.  The new G70 Shooting Brake flies in beneath $80k new.

If you’re not yet too sure about the origins of Genesis, this magnificent team of designers and builders of premium automotive cars blossoms from out of the South Korean luxury car brands Hyundai and Kia.  Genesis is the pinnacle of what these key brands can offer.  In the field of design, both Kia and Hyundai have been awarded many accolades over recent years.

The Genesis G70 Shooting Brake brings this artistic style into a wagon form, where its exterior lines are gloriously svelte and flowing.  The added 130 litres that the wagon form adds over the G70 sedan is quite crucial, especially considering that the Genesis G70 Sedan manages a rather slim volume of 330 litres.  Of course, the 465 litres of luggage space grows to things much greater once any folding of the 40:20:40 split folding rear seats have been utilized.

Seating space in the luxury mid-size Genesis wagon is very good; rear seat occupants of tall stature should be impressed with the decent levels of heads, shoulders and knee space.  Occupants in the front of the new Genesis G70 Wagon have loads of space, and the driver will find the adjustment in the steering wheel and seat ample for locating a comfortable driving position, with a good view of the road ahead and a decent ergonomic experience.  The actual seats themselves offer great support, and they deliver loads of comfort for any long periods spent travelling.

Underway and out on the open road you should find the new Genesis G70 Wagon a comfortable cruising machine.  Cruising at highway speeds is effortless and quiet.  Both around town and at highway speeds, the G70 Shooting Brake’s suspension rides well over a variety of surfaces.  Cornering grip is good, and the wagon feels nicely composed.  The Brembo brakes do a great job of hauling you in during an emergency stop, with ESC and ABS backing you up all the way.

From a standstill, planting the right foot to the floor will see the 2.0-litre petrol Turbo motor growling assertively and sending you scampering through to 100 km/h in around 6.4 seconds.  There’s flexibility in the engine as it goes about its daily chores.  Peak power is 179 kW, and this combines with 353 Nm of torque and a slick shifting 8-speed auto to provide leisurely cruising ability as well as relatively quick overtaking skills out on the open road.  At lower speeds around town, the transmission is nice and smooth with no hiccups in its function at all.  The 4-cylinder petrol motor can be quite frugal when cruising about, however hurtling the wagon’s near-1.8 tonnes about the place soon has the motor drinking a little heavily.  Fuel consumption should average out around 10 litres/100 km, though Genesis suggests a claimed 9.1 litres/100 km.

Potentially, some of the serious Genesis G70 Wagon buyers might be disappointed that there isn’t a more powerful version available, like with the V6 powerhouse available in the Sedan version.  Even something that could match the VW Arteon’s 206 kW.  However, the G70 Wagon skips quickly through the 0-100 km/h sprint and feels ample enough for most drives.  Because it won’t likely sell in high numbers (most wagons don’t now) Genesis has a good package here in the one-version-only luxury-packed G70 Shooting Brake wagon.  With a 5-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty if you buy new, the road to hassle free motoring is hard to beat.  You also get with a full-term roadside assistance service as well as free servicing for the first 5 years.

2022 Genesis G70 Wagon

Your new Genesis G70 Wagon is well-equipped vehicle from the outset.  Sitting upon 19-inch wheels, boasting a sunroof, equipped with wireless phone charging, having the joys of heated or cooled front seats and heated rear seats, this is a sweet package.  The Nappa leather interior is quilt-stitched, while suede fabric lines the roof and pillars.   A head-up display, 12.3-inch instrument cluster screen, and a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen all feature as the most recent Genesis technology and updates.  Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard.  Then there is the multi-zone climate control to keep you temperate for any weather.  Active cruise control helps to keep your speed in check, while you’ve got a navigation system to help you prevent taking the wrong turn.  The Smartphone connection also runs seamlessly through the infotainment system, which can adapt to run your own personalised phone apps.

The Genesis G70 Wagon has all of the safety features and strength of the Sedan, which was ANCAP tested, receiving the full five-star ANCAP rating.  Active safety tech includes things like collision warnings forward and rear, lane-keep assist, a superb 360-degree parking camera, adaptive cruise control and 10 airbags.  LED matrix headlights cleverly avoid dazzling oncoming drivers.

The new Genesis G70 Wagon is a premium product all ready to take you and your family places in style.  You’ll be a driver of a car that exudes style and luxury, and it will even boast a more exotic flavour than those who opt to drive an equivalent Audi A4 or BMW 3 Series alternative.
