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.

    They need dedicated dealerships with Lexus-like customer service and quality.

      Agreed! I’m sure they’re at least thinking about it. Nothing against a Hyundai Accent or the person who decides to purchase one but I would imagine it would frustrate a Genesis owner to have to line up behind said person to have their car serviced…

        Genesis customers are the only customers that never have to step foot in a dealership. Everything from test drive to signing documents can be done from the comfort of their home. They don’t even visit the dealerships for service, Genesis goes and picks up their cars and leaves them with a loaner………….hard to rub elbows with someone if you never have to see them .

          Wow! So they solved the problem of the dealership experience by making it so you don’t have to go there in the first place.

          Wow had no idea, that’s pretty cool. Here’s to hoping I get one of these babies and that it has a Lexicon sound system.

      They’re working on it. Several articles on the issue over the past year or so.

      I imagine that Genesis will have their own dealerships by 2020/2021 when they have more models.

  • An Existing Person

    Genesis would be taken much more serious if they had dedicated dealerships. Having an $80k G90 parked next to a $30k Sonata in the same showroom is not appealing to a customer of that magnitude. It’s a shame because their current models are a better purchase than what older brands such as Acura and Buick have been producing for years.

      They’re working on it. Recently, they just said Genesis must be stand-alone dealerships, which upset existing Hyundai dealers that have already created and invested into a Genesis showroom.

      Wip…

    • Nick

      This is literally a non-issue.. it’s ridiculous

  • john1168

    Looks great so far!

  • Galaxium

    How interesting it would be if the G70 manages to be a better entry-level sedan than the 3-series or C-class.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      That would catapult Genesis to the top of the food chain.

    • john1168

      And you would still hear, “but it’s still a Hyundai!”….ugh. LOL

  • SteersUright

    Looks like it’ll be a real good looking car inside and out! I do take issue with the truly unexciting motors though which are down on innovation, tech, power, and noise compared with the best. 300 & 400hp should have been the targets, combined with a spectacular engine sound.

    I’ll definitely buy one as my first real new car so that BMW and Mercedes Owners have nothing on me.
