Genesis launched just a few pictures of the up to date G70 sedan again in September, and I’ve bought to say, it seems to be nice — however issues preserve getting higher with a brand new set of pictures dropped by the corporate on Tuesday. I do know Genesis’ massive grille and quad-lamp lighting is not for everybody, however mixed with some softer edges and the G70’s extra petite package deal, I am completely right here for this refresh. Apart from, this replace brings the G70 according to its bigger G80, G90 and GV80 siblings.

The entrance fascia clearly reveals the G70’s greatest styling replace. In profile, the G70 is basically much like the present automotive, with some new wheel designs that nearly look barely too massive for this compact sedan. From the rear, the G70 is lots like its predecessor, although its chunky taillights are actually cut up, bringing the quad-lamp signature round to the automotive’s butt.

Transferring inside, I am all in regards to the purple leather-based upholstery, although the general design of the G70’s cabin hasn’t modified an excessive amount of. One massive enchancment sits atop the sprint: A brand new, 10.3-inch infotainment display that “options an unique Genesis UI design,” in accordance with the automaker. This new tech helps over-the-air updates because of Wi-Fi, in addition to Apple CarPlay compatibility, although the corporate curiously does not point out Android Auto — one thing that is accessible within the present G70.

Genesis confirmed on Tuesday that the present 2.0-liter turbo I4 and three.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engines would carry over unchanged, however that they are going to obtain further drive modes. Different world markets will get a four-cylinder diesel engine choice as properly. As we have beforehand reported, an eight-speed computerized transmission is now the one unit accessible. The handbook is lifeless.

The up to date G70 is anticipated to go on sale in South Korea in October earlier than making its approach to different nations. Contemplating the present G70 exists as a 2021 mannequin within the US, the brand new G70 will present up carrying a 2022 designation, that means it ought to arrive someday early subsequent 12 months.
