This Is The Face Of The Upcoming Genesis G70

| |

Last week, an image surfaced online showing the Genesis G70 from the rear without any camoflage in sight. Based on that grainy image alone, many appear to be fans of the sports sedan already.

Now, we’ve stumbled on a handful of additional images of the G70 on the Korean Beast forums and one of them reveals the completed design of the front-end with nothing more than some strips of white tape.

Up front, the G70 adopts headlights that look remarkably similar to those of the Infiniti Q50, not that that’s necessarily a bad thing. In the middle of the fascia is a large grille with four-sided diamond-shaped mesh while the bumper appears to consist of two large air intakes on either side and a prominent splitter.

Compared to the aggressive design of the Kia Stinger, the G70 looks much more restrained and will probably blend in with traffic better than its brother from another mother.

Like the Stinger, the range-topping G70 is tipped to get a twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 with 365 hp and rear-wheel drive as standard. There’s a possibility that all-wheel drive will be an option and that the entry-level model may receive the same 255 hp, 2.0-liter turbo four as the Stinger.
