Genesis G70 Render and Leaked Information





This is what the Genesis G70 will look like, thanks to the guys at Brenthon and additionally we have some leaked details about the upcoming G70.

Genesis cannot afford to get the G70 wrong



The already-crowded compact luxury sport sedan market is about to get even more competitive with the upcoming debut of the Genesis G70. This rendering looks similar to the spy photos we published last year and contains all the signature styling features of the new Genesis brand. We think the production car will be very close to what you see here.
We’ve been hearing about this car, which was originally codenamed RK, since before the Genesis brand was announced. Last year’s New York concept car by Genesis made it official that a 3-Series fighter was almost ready. With all the data Hyundai collected from the Genesis Coupe and two generations of Genesis sedans, it seems likely that the G70 will be a serious contender to capture some compact rear-drive sales.
What We Know About The Genesis G70


Performance

Our sources told us the Genesis G70 will be driven by a choice of a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder with a standard 6-speed manual transmission and optional 8-speed automatic, a 3.3L V6 with the 8-speed auto standard, and a diesel drivetrain with unknown displacement and around 195 horsepower for select markets. The target acceleration for the 2.0 would be around 5.9 seconds from 0-60mph, while the 3.3 is aiming at a 4.9 second time. We were also told Brembo brakes will be an option on the G70.
Interior

The G70 hopes to outshine its competitors on the inside, and promises to feature real aluminum trim, wireless phone charging, and a Heads-up Display (HUD) to impress drivers and passengers.


Pricing



Even if the G70 can match or outclass its rivals in performance, luxury, or styling, being a Hyundai product, the car will have to appeal on value to generate sales volume. To that end, our sources says the Genesis will be offering G70 buyers a base price of around $32,000 in the United States.
There’s no denying that the G70 is an important car for Genesis. In fact, the success of the brand may hinge on this car providing sales volume. With its combination of high-performing engine choices coupled to the rear-wheel-drive system through two transmission options, its focus on quality and luxury amenities, and its attractive pricing, it seems positioned to sell.
Expect to see the G70 launch soon – our sources said we should be getting the G70 ahead of the Mid-size crossover SUV.

The Hyundai Genesis Has Become An Insanely Great Used Luxury Car Value


Hey you, the person with luxury sedan desires but a Toyota Camry budget! Forget the out-of-warranty BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E Class. Those are fine cars, but they will cost you in the long run. The Hyundai Genesis is one of best used luxury values on the market, and you should buy one.


Hyundai first experimented with selling a luxury car in the American market with the Genesis and later the larger, more expensive Equus. Neither car really caught on with premium car buyers despite being much cheaper than their respected rivals. The main problem, aside from being a brand with no cachet fighting in well established European territory, was that most critics panned the first generation Genesis and Equus as “almost but not quite there” luxury sedans.

That all changed with the 2015 Genesis. Hyundai finally made a car that drove and felt like something you would get from a European marque. The shift was so dramatic that Hyundai is now spinning off Genesis into its own brand and currently offers the G80 (formerly called Genesis) and G90 (Equus) sedans.











This transition means that the 2015-2016 Hyundai branded Genesis is stuck in the middle, and that equates to some great values for you. There are tons of V6-powered, lightly used Genesis sedans out there in the mid-$20,000 range.






Oh, you wanted a V8? Okay, I understand, if you are going to get a luxury cruiser you want big engine under the hood. Gas is still cheap, might as well enjoy life.
For less than a fully loaded Sonata, you can have your Genesis with a 5.0-liter 415 horsepower V8 and rear-wheel-drive.




If you are in the market for a used luxury sedan you can go two ways: you can follow the crowd and get something German or a Lexus, and there is nothing wrong with that, or you can get something a little different that gives you everything you want without some of the baggage that comes with the usual choices. But the used Genesis has become way too strong a value to ignore.

Genesis GV80 concept previews BMW X5-rivaling SUV



Genesis GV80 concept, 2017 New York auto show

Genesis has given us our first taste at one of its upcoming SUVs with the GV80 concept car unveiled on Wednesday at the 2017 New York auto show.
The concept also introduces the naming strategy for Genesis’ SUVs, with the “G” representing the Genesis brand, the “V” the extra versatility of an SUV, and the “80” the positioning in the brand’s lineup.
Hyundai’s luxury brand is committed to having a lineup of six cars by the end of 2020, and two of these cars will be SUVs. The first, previewed by the GV80 concept, will be a mid-size model targeting the BMW X5. The second will be a smaller model targeting the BMW X3.
If an alleged Genesis product roadmap is to be believed, the GV80 will arrive in production form in the next year or two. By then, Genesis will already be selling its new G70 small sedan.

Genesis’ “athletic elegance” design philosophy lends itself quite well to the SUV form factor, though it remains to be seen how much of the concept’s lines transfer over to the production model. Up front is Genesis’ “crest” grille which features a diamond pattern. This is flanked by split headlights made up of LEDs. One interesting element is the structural truss design for the roof pillars which can be seen from inside the vehicle.
The interior features an open design and is dominated by a 22-inch curved display at the top of the dash. It’s joined by a second screen that forms the main instrument cluster. The 22-inch screen presents two distinct zones, providing separate driver and passenger experiences. Interacting with the screen can be done by touching the thin metal strips in the center console. There is also a controller wheel whose center is a concave glass touchpad.
Genesis says the GV80 concept is powered by a fuel cell but hasn’t released any additional details.

Genesis G70 faster, lighter than Kia Stinger GT

Hyundai's luxury brand Genesis to up the ante with rear-drive twin-turbo V6 scorcher this year




The long-awaited Genesis G70 will be on sale in Australia before the end of the year, and will be offered with a pair of turbocharged petrol engines – four-cylinder and V6.
Although pricing and specification is still not finalised, the all-new G70 will be based on a new rear-drive platform and will compete against vehicles such as the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.




However it’s expected to be more affordable than its German rivals, which start at around $55,000, in line with the larger Genesis sedan currently sold here, which will soon be rebadged G80.
Hyundai Australia says the G70 will be lighter and faster than the Kia Stinger GT too, a vehicle which dispatches the 0-100km/h dash in just 4.9 seconds.
In its highest state of tune, the Korean-built rear-drive luxury sedan is expected to accelerate to 100km/h in around 4.7 seconds, thanks to its 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6, which should be good for at least 270kW and 510Nm – a similar output to the Kia Stinger GT.
“The Genesis G70 and [Kia] Stinger represent different design philosophies and positions in the market,” Guido Schenken, Hyundai Australia’s PR manager told motoring.com.au.
“The Stinger is a five door touring sedan with a hatch, while the G70 is a pure sports sedan.
“The G70 is shorter, narrower and lighter than Stinger as well as having a shorter wheelbase, hence it’s reasonable to assume it’ll offer better performance,” he told motoring.com.au.
Genesis’ new sports sedan is tipped to be more agile than the Kia too, given its lighter weight, and with at least 270kW on tap, it could rival European stock such as the BMW 340i and Mercedes-AMG C 43.
The prospect of local suspension tuning for the Australian market could also be a boon for potential buyers looking for an engaging car to drive.
Spy photos of the new G70 sedan undergoing pre-production testing at the Nurburgring confirm the vehicle’s sedan body style. The exterior design will also be heavily influenced by the Genesis New York concept which premiered in April 2016, although that car’s quasi lift-back derriere appears to have been scotched.
Expect strong after sales support from Genesis via five-year warranties, and while it’s not clear exactly when the G70 will arrive in Australia, it won’t be an easy sell just because its packing a boosted V6.
The German prestige car trio of BMW, Audi and Mercedes have a vice-like grip on the market, and there’s Lexus and Infiniti to consider as well.
“The Genesis G70 will be on sale in Australia before the end of the year,” said Schenken. “It will be available with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol or 3.3-litre V6 twin turbo.
“We’re not in a position to discuss pricing or specification detail at this time, because we’re still finalising these for the Australia market. We can only confirm the two powertrains.”
Genesis has promised to have a six vehicle garage by 2020, including the upcoming G70, the G80 and G90 sedans, along with a pair of SUVs, expected to be the GV70 and GV80.
The final model will be a grand touring or GT coupe akin to the Lexus LC 500.

#NYIAS: So, You've Seen Its EXTERIOR, How About The INTERIOR? Are You Diggin' The GUTS Of The Genesis GV80 Concept?






I have to admit that Agent 001 and I were a bit surprised by the Genesis GV80.



For some reason, it just didn't seem like Hyundai's luxury division would come out with a sport-utility vehicle this bold.

Of course given where sales are heading — right now buyers favor SUVs — it was clear that one would come along. But, you have to take note here.

New York Auto Show

**Interested in the GV80? Read all there is to know about it in the Genesis GV80 press release HERE!

After speaking with Agent 001, he gave me a pearl: Genesis' GV80 isn't reaching for the BMW X5, Lexus RX or Land Rover Range Rover. It's reaching for Bentley.

Just take a look at its exterior, which has led 001 to brilliantly coin the all-new Genesis concept, "The Gentayga." Only adding fuel to the fire is its interior, which is the definition of, well, decadent.

Get a glimpse at the best pictures of the all-new GV80's interior you'll find anywhere, right here on AutoSpies.com!

Headlights to become vestigial, says Genesis design boss




Luc Donckerwolke explains why the GV80 has such small headlights.
The Genesis GV80 concept at the New York Auto Show may have been notable for being a hydrogen-powered SUV or the brand's first luxury crossover, but there was another future trend written across its face — small headlights.

Luc Donckerwolke, head of design for the Genesis brand, believes that some time in the not-too-distant future headlights on cars will be rendered obsolete. Speaking to the Australian press, he noted that thanks to autonomous driving, cars of the future will be able to navigate roads in complete darkness.

It explains in part why the Genesis SUV's grille takes up so much frontal real estate, with only four slivers of LEDs flanking it on each side. "We are reducing the size because we are anticipating the fact that slowly cars won't need lights any more," he told Motoring.com.au.

Though lights for illuminating the road may be replaced by an array of radar and laser sensors, vestigial headlights like the ones on the GV80 might still persist as design cues.

Though it sounds far fetched, we wouldn't rule out anything Donckerwolke has to say. Having worked previously at VW Group designing Audis, Bentleys and Lamborghinis, the Belgian designer knows a thing or two about setting trends.

Genesis coupe to skip V-8 in favor of electrified powertrain



Hyundai Vision G (HCD-16) concept

One of the six cars Genesis plans to have in its lineup by the end of 2020 is a large, luxurious coupe built more for grand touring than carving up race tracks.
Unfortunately, a previous plan to fit the car with a V-8 looks to have been axed with Genesis instead favoring an electrified powertrain. The information was confirmed to Drive by Genesis design boss Luc Donckerwolke.
“As much as I like to drive V-8s, I believe electrification is going to be a main element,” the former Bentley and Lamborghini design told the Australian publication when quizzed about a V-8 being fitted to the new coupe.
He pointed to the regulatory environment as one of the key reasons for going the electrification route.
Hyundai Vision G (HCD-16) concept

“See what's happening; diesels are being banned from the cities.” He said. “Emissions have to be reduced drastically. Today a V-8 is not exactly responding to that environment.”
Separately, Manfred Fitzgerald, the boss of Genesis, told Drive that as more cars become electrified, you're going to see performance equalize among brands and thus become less of a differentiator. He gave the example of when most cars can do 0-60 mph in less than 3.0 seconds, customers will seek other attributes such as brand recognition or the design or the level of connectivity.
The Vision G concept car from 2015 hints at what Genesis has in store for its new coupe.
There are still a few years until the car arrives, however. If a leaked product roadmap is to be believed, the coupe will be the last of Genesis’ six planned cars. We’ve already seen the G90 and G80 sedans launched. Later this year we’ll see a G70 sedan join the range and after that we’ll see a mid-size SUV based on the recently-revealed GV80 concept, as well as a small SUV likely badged a GV70.

Genesis G70 to be faster, lighter than Kia Stinger GT






Genesis plans to try its hand at the sport sedan game when the G70 officially arrives by the end of this year, and it's going to be a quick machine—even outpacing the Kia Stinger GT.
While the Stinger GT will accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 4.9 seconds, Genesis has revealed to Motoring that the G70 will be capable of an even quicker time thanks to its lighter platform, supposedly a new design making its debut in the G70.
Both the Stinger GT and G70 receive power from a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine. While we don't know final numbers, the Stinger GT manages 365 horsepower from the mill. The G70 should arrive somewhere in the same ballpark.
"The Genesis G70 and [Kia] Stinger represent different design philosophies and positions in the market," Guido Schenken, Hyundai Australia’s PR manager told Motoring. "The G70 is shorter, narrower and lighter than Stinger as well as having a shorter wheelbase, hence it’s reasonable to assume it’ll offer better performance."
The 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 will certainly be the enthusiast's choice of engine, but a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 will also be available.
Genesis has grand plans as it takes a page from Lexus' handbook. The brand will encompass six distinct models by the end of the decade, including two SUVs, plenty of electrification, and a luxury grand touring coupe. The brand recently previewed what we may see from a future SUV in the GV80 concept.

Genesis prices 2018 G80 lineup; Sport to start at $55,250




The Genesis G80 lineup gets a reorganization for 2018.
Genesis announced pricing for its 2018 G80 Thursday, giving us our first look at the model's new hierarchy.



The 2018 G80 comprises three trim levels and six total variations (each of those trims is available in either rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive.
Each trim gets its own engine, starting with the base G80 3.8. As the name suggests, this carries over Hyundai's 311-horsepower 3.8L V6. This trim starts at $41,750. At this price, you get a host of safety and semi-autonomous features (lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, etc.) which are not often standard on large luxury vehicles.
The next step up is the G80 Sport. This model is entirely new for 2018 and is aimed at the likes of the Mercedes-AMG E43. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.3L V6 which produces 365 horsepower and 378lb-ft of torque. This gets to the ground via a reprogrammed eight-speed transmission.
Sport models also get a retuned suspension for improved dynamic performance. The R-Spec may be gone, but this is the G80 for the enthusiast.
There's more good news. The 5.0L V8 remains in the lineup. The 5.0L Ultimate is the range-topping trim, boasting the aforementioned 420-horsepower V8. Rear-wheel-drive 5.0L Ultimates start at $57,000 even.
Genesis is leading with the 2018 Sport model, which should be arriving in showrooms starting in May. 3.8 and 5.0 trims should start to trickle in this summer.

Genesis will not be beholden to "corporate face"




Each model will have a unique personality, designer says.
Common identifying design cues on luxury marques has been a tradition for many decades, but new kid on the block Genesis intends to buck that trend.

Whether it's BMW kidneys, the Lexus spindle grille, or Lincoln baleen whale mouth, such features give an automaker "brand identity." However, to the average buyer this often results in similar-looking models at different tiers.

"We feel like each platform deserves its own unique personality," Genesis designer John Krsteski told Motoring.com.au. Indeed, this philosophy was borne out in the recent GV80 concept, which does not resemble either existing Genesis models, the G80 or G90 (though as of now the latter two do look very similar). Genesis has already announced plans to expand the line to six models, including a G70 sport sedan, a GV70 crossover, and a yet-unnamed GT coupe.

The lack of brand identity is often seen as a negative for automakers catering to status-conscious luxury buyers, but it is one of the ways Genesis intends to distinguish itself in the hotly contested market. "We don't feel constrained to try to live up to something that was there before," Krsteski says.
