The 2022 Genesis G70 refresh seems superior
Genesis launched just a few pictures of the up to date G70 sedan on Tuesday, and I’ve received to say, it seems nice. I do know Genesis’ huge grille and quad-lamp lighting is not for everybody, however mixed with some softer edges and the G70’s extra petite bundle, I am completely right here for this refresh. In addition to, this replace brings the G70 according to its bigger, and siblings.
The entrance fascia clearly reveals the G70’s largest styling replace. In profile, the G70 is essentially just like the present automotive, with some new wheel designs that just about look barely too huge for this compact sedan. From the rear, the G70 is so much like its predecessor, although its chunky taillights at the moment are break up, bringing the quad-lamp signature round to the automotive’s butt.
Transferring inside, I am all concerning the purple leather-based upholstery, although the general design of the G70’s cabin hasn’t modified an excessive amount of. One huge enchancment sits atop the sprint: A brand new, 10.3-inch infotainment display that “options an unique Genesis UI design,” in response to the automaker. This new tech helps over-the-air updates because of Wi-Fi, in addition tocompatibility, although the corporate curiously does not point out — one thing that is obtainable within the present G70.
Genesis did not disclose any powertrain particulars when it launched these photographs on Tuesday, which may imply certainly one of two issues. On one hand, the present 2.0-liter turbo I4 and three.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engines may carry over unchanged, since that is solely a refresh. However alternatively, the G70 may profit from a brand new 2.5-liter turbo I4 engine — similar to the one present in, a automotive with which the Genesis shares a platform.
The up to date G70 is anticipated to go on sale in South Korea in October earlier than making its technique to different international locations. Contemplating the present G70 exists as a 2021 mannequin within the US, the brand new G70 will present up carrying a 2022 designation, which means it ought to arrive someday early subsequent 12 months.
