2019 Genesis G70

Genesis G70 2019

Wouldn’t a small sedan with AWD, luxury fittings, exterior style and a powerful twin-turbo V6 be a nice drive?  You bet; and Hyundai Genesis thinks so too.  The G70 is Hyundai Genesis’s small luxury sedan alternative in much the same way as you’d find a Lexus IS is to Toyota and the Infiniti Q70 is for Nissan.  The 2019 Genesis G70 is an assertive sports sedan with an athletic edge, but with the dynamic underpinnings there is plenty of classic styling and loads of new technology.  Hyundai’s very modern new Genesis G70 is a really good luxury small/medium sedan alternative.  Now let’s see if we can turn your eyes away from the likes of a 3-Series Beemer, C-Class Mercedes or even a Lexus GS.

Hyundai’s new Genesis G70 premium sports/luxury sedan is nicely drawn with a balanced silhouette, gorgeous detailing and even with a flair resonant of Italian cars.   This athletic G70 sedan boasts exclusive piano black, chrome or dark chrome exterior highlighting, a set of suave 18 or 19-inch sports alloys, a full LED front lighting system including Bi-LED headlights with auto-levelling, a panorama glass sunroof-single panel and even an acoustic laminated front windscreen.  To the eye, the G70 has a hint of Maserati.

Genesis G70 Interior 2019

Enter inside the new Genesis G70 sedan and the sensation of luxury takes a step up.  Nappa premium leather appoints the interior which is roomy and comfortable for its class.  Naturally with the small/medium sedan dimensions the rear seat leg room in a G70 is a little tighter than you’d find in a larger sedan, for sure; but that goes for most cars settled in this class of car – Mercs included.  The suede headlining, rear shelf, pillars and sun visors give an opulent touch, and the G70 makes use of plenty of classy aluminium trims for centre console and door trims.  The stainless steel tweeter covers and door scuff plates show the attention to detail that this new Genesis sedan provides its owners with.  Luxury is in the driving experience, and with the new G70 you are cosseted in comfort.

At the helm of the G70, the driver can find the exact driving position to suit their dimensions.  A 16-way power adjustable driver seat boasts features like 4-way lumbar support, a seat bolster adjustment, seat cushion length adjustment, driver position memory and even heating/cooling functions.  Steering wheel adjustment ensures you’ll be comfortable for hours, and the power-

Is the new G70 safe?  Quick answer is yes, and the long answer is that it’s equipped with: Genesis’ Active Safety Control system, 7 Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags, front airbags (driver and passenger), knee airbag (driver), side (thorax) airbags (driver, front passenger), side curtain airbags (front and rear), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), ABS, a Brake Assist System, Dynamic Stability Damping Control, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Hill-start Assist Control, a Traction Control System, Vehicle Stability Management, Active bonnet lift collision system (for additional Pedestrian safety), Parking Distance Warning (Front and Rear), Tyre pressure monitoring with individual tyre pressure readout, Genesis Active Safety Control, Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assistance, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Pedestrian Detection, Automatic High Beam Assist, Lane Keeping Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go Function, and a 360° Surround View Monitor.

You’ll also find the new G70 sedan’s 8-inch HD touchscreen is really good and simple to use.  Its wireless phone recharging feature, as well as its ability to work with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, makes for easy wireless phone communication in conjunction with premium audio.  The 15-speaker sound system designed by Lexicon and Harman has audio technology that’s won a Technical Grammy Award, no less!

Hyundai Genesis has developed two engines specifically for the G70 sedan.  The emphasis of these two engines is emphatically on performance and excitement.  The 2.0-litre turbo direct injection petrol spins freely with its twin cam, 16-valve, 4-cylinder design.  With this engine under the bonnet, strong response and smooth, fuel efficient performance is what you’ll enjoy.  Maximum power is rated at 179 kW, and with 353 Nm of torque there is plenty of flexible pulling power.  A 0-100 km/h dash is completed in around six seconds.  RWD and AWD models are available with the 2.0-litre turbo.

A 3.3-litre, 24 valve, quad cam, direct injection, twin turbo V6 petrol engine adds more muscle, and with 272 kW of power and 510 Nm of torque on tap there is no doubting that this is a very quick car.  A 0-100 km/h sprint time of around 4.7 seconds is fast, and the car feels totally composed at any speed.  This car runs on to speeds above 270 km/h effortlessly.

Complementing the engines is the Electronically Controlled Adaptive Suspension.  It constantly adjusts and responds to the road in real time – giving you the most comfortable, safe and responsive ride possible.  Both the 2.0-litre and 3.3-litre engines are linked to a really nice eight-speed automatic gearbox with paddle-shifters for those who like to have total control and an engaging drive.

Other technology that’s found in the 2019 Hyundai Genesis G70 sedan are features like: Dynamic Stability Damping Control (DSDC), MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension with aluminium control arms that provide more precise wheel control and handling, a Limited Slip Differential (LSD), Dynamic Torque Vectoring Control, a Launch Control Function, High performance Brembo brakes, High performance 19-inch Michelin or 18-inch Continental tyres, an Aluminium bonnet and rear parcel shelf for weight saving and lower fuel consumption, a drive mode with 5 settings – Comfort, Eco, Sport, Smart or Custom, a lap timer function, G-force meter and electronic engine oil temperature, engine torque and turbo boost gauges… and loads more.

The new Genesis G70 sedan signals the luxury brand’s desire to make its mark as a serious player in a segment packed with some fabulous cars.  Genesis does boast Hyundai’s deserved reputation for reliability, and the G70 oozes the quality and driving dynamics a discerning sport/luxury driver is going to enjoy.  The new 2019 Hyundai Genesis G70 sedan is a quality drive, loads of fun and more affordable than most of its equals.  If you’re on the lookout for a new luxury drive, then it’s time you checked the G70 out.
