Simone takes an early sneak preview of the 2022 Genesis G70. It’s a further indicator of just how far Genesis has come with their luxury vehicles and packaged in a small sedan.

First of all, the looks. It gets the twin line headlights and the new grille. Some people love them, some don’t, but it definitely stands out and looks better than the pre-facelift G70.

The side view is less aggressive, but it also looks nice. I have to say I love the slightly slanted rear side section that gives a bit of a coupeish style.

Engine Specifications

Engine: 2.0L Turbo Gasoline
Power: 185 kW @ 6,200 rpm
Torque: 353 Nm @ 1,400-4,000 rpm
Transmission: 6 Speed Manual

Engine options for the new Genesis G70 start from a 2L turbo petrol and go up to the 3.3 V6 twin-turbo. The 2 L produces 185 kW and 353 Nm and the V6 gives 272 kW and 510 Nm.

They are both sporty, but the difference is more than noticeable, of course in favour of the V6. We will be doing a full driving review of the latest Genesis G70 soon so stay tuned for that video.
