Genesis G70 Finally Launches Down Under, Starts From $59,300 AUD

Genesis’ 3-Series, C-Class and A4 rival, the G70, has just been introduced to the Australian market.

The luxury sports sedan is offered with two powertrains: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 240 HP and 353 Nm (260 lb-ft) of torque, and a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 with 364 HP and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft).

Both engine options are sold in three different grades. The range, therefore, consists of the G70 2.0T, 2.0T Sport, 2.0 Ultimate, and the 3.3T Sport, 3.3T Ultimate, and 3.3T Ultimate Sport. All models use an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.

Genesis sells all G70 variants with a five-year/unlimited kilometer warranty, five-year/50,000 km complimentary scheduled servicing, five-year 24/7 roadside assist, five-year map updates, and a five-year subscription to Genesis Connected Services and the ‘Genesis To You’ valet service.

Like the larger G80, all Australian G70s feature Genesis Adaptive Control Suspension, Dynamic Stability Damping Control and Electronic Control Suspension as standard. The suspension was tuned to local roads, building upon the comprehensive testing which Genesis previously did in the likes of Korea, Germany, the U.S., and Sweden for G70 models sold worldwide.

Moreover, all models come with seven airbags as standard. There is also the Genesis Active Safety Control suite, which includes Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with pedestrian detection, and a lane-change oncoming function, as well as a Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning system, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, a Surround View Monitor in Ultimate-badged models, Forward/Reverse Parking Distance Warning, and a Rear-View Monitor with parking guidance.

Prices for the entry-level G70 2.0T start at $59,300 AUD ($41,251 USD) and increase to $63,300 AUD ($44,034 USD) for the 2.0T Sport and $69,300 AUD ($48,207 USD) for the 2.0T Ultimate. The base 3.3T Sport model starts at $72,450 ($50,398 USD) and rises to $79,950 ($55,611) for both the 3.3T Ultimate and 3.3T Ultimate Sport.

    This is a cool car.


    still no chance of introducing genesis brand in europe though

    • bd0007

      Won’t happen ’til 2-3 more years.

      No point of launching in Europe until products suited for the market are ready.

      Right now, there’s just the G70 (but needs a hybrid variant).

      In 2-3 years time, there will be the GV70 and GV60 crossovers and a BEV.

  • Jawohl

    Genesis = worst depreciating brand. Good luck to any sucker who buys one.

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      Uhhh, no, not even close to true.

      They don’t even have a single model in the top 10 fastest depreciating vehicles, but BMW has multiple.

      Stop spreading lies.

      • bd0007

        Jawohl likes to make derogatory remarks about the Korean brands, even if not true/accurate.

        • Jawohl

          err, it is true and can easily be backed up.
          Google “ motorbiscuit Don’t Plan on Reselling: These 10 Cars Depreciate Fast”

          • bd0007

            Again, OUTDATED article.

            And that was for when the Genesis sedan became the G80.

            Most recent lists don’t have any Genesis model, but the usual suspects (Germans, Americans and some BEVs).

          • Jawohl

            Oh so it was accurate hey?

      • bd0007

        The troll is using an outdated list which for that year had a special circumstance – the Hyundai Genesis sedan being rebranded the Genesis G80, so the previously branded Hyundai models took an extra depreciation hit.

  • smartalec

    Looks like they didn’t do their research, Australians don’t really buy sedans any more, only SUV’s.

    • bd0007

      They did; Genesis has 3 CUVs in development w/ the first, the GV80, to launch in Korea later this year and other markets early next year.

      • smartalec

        Then why not wait to launch with vehicles that people actually buy?

        • bd0007

          Cuz, people still purchase sedans (not everyone buys a crossover or SUV).

          The 3 Series and C Class are still among the best selling luxury models.

  • bd0007

    There are no dealerships per se, but showroom boutiques (of which 10 are planned).

    Sales will be handled directly by the manufacturer.

    • Mr_Fanta_Pants

      Call it what you like, you can only buy at one location at the moment. The others are not opening in a hurry

      • bd0007

        Again, just one SHOWROOM for now, but since the manufacturer is managing sales directly, can purchase at any of the major metro areas.

        • Mr_Fanta_Pants

          If you live within 70km of Pitt Street, they’ll do that.
