Genesis have brought their premium compact sedan, the G70, to the 2017 Dubai Motor Show, prior to its launch in the local market early next year.
Nothing much has changed compared to the G70 offered in other markets, apart from the fact that the 2.0-liter inline-four diesel, which makes 204 PS (201 HP) and 439 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque, won’t be available in the Middle East.
Thus, the G70’s lineup will consist of two turbocharged gasoline engines: a 2.0-liter unit rated at 252 PS (248 HP) and 353 Nm (260 lb-ft) of torque, and a 3.3-liter V6 with 370 PS (365 HP) and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft). The V6 variant helps the G70 Sport sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 270 km/h (168 mph).
Genesis promises an enhanced experience that comes courtesy of the multi-link rear suspension, mechanical limited slip differential, dynamic torque vectoring and Launch Control.
These are joined by what the company calls “an unparalleled suite of advanced driver assist systems”, such as Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind Spot Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking and Driver Awareness Warning integrated into the Genesis Active Safety Control package.
The list of equipment is generous and, depending on the selected trim level, includes an 8-inch touchscreen display that supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink, and a 15-speaker premium sound system from Lexicon, among others.
