Genesis GV70 crossover revealed

https://media.genesis.com/news/all/t...4-c244582f80e9

Quote:
  • The new Genesis G70 strengthens brand identity, aligning all models with current ďAthletic EleganceĒ design philosophy
  • Feature set improvements, including 10.25-inch touchscreen, complement connected luxury sports philosophy
  • Driving performance features gain additional drive mode and sensory-focused improvements

SEOUL, Oct 20th, 2020 Ė Today, Genesis debuted the new G70, which updates the award-winning sport sedan with a fresh design and enriched technology. These changes further align G70ís visual signature with the latest iteration of the brandís ďAthletic EleganceĒ design language, as seen on the all-new G80 sedan and first-ever GV80 SUV. Likewise, the new G70 benefits from the incorporation of the brandís latest advanced-safety and driver-assistance technology, further elevating the ownership experience.

Comprehensive Style Update for the Most Athletic Genesis Sports Sedan

The most athletic sports sedan offered by Genesis, the award winning G70 receives a performance and styling update.

Up front, the new G70 gains the brandís signature Quad Lamps, featuring super thin LED lamps which stretch outward like the wings of the Genesis emblem. The low-slung Crest Grille evokes an aggressive stance that emphasizes the G70ís performance character.

Viewed from the side, the new G70ís profile retains the familiar long hood and short front overhang, communicating its agility even when parked. Four all-new wheel designs further enhance its presence, and a new air extractor positioned aft of the front wheel designed to optimize airflow efficiency. The Parabolic Line adds an elegant touch over the muscular surfaces, just a like a tailored suit for a world class athlete.

At the rear, Genesisí signature Quad Lamp taillights and prominent Genesis text over the clean of the surface of the trunk lid shows an unmistakable Genesis identity. Dual exhaust tips and a body-colored diffuser add the finishing touches to the sport sedanís updates.

A total of 14 exterior colors will be offered, including two new metallic options and three matte finishes. Sedona Brown and Tasman Blue are the new metallic offerings, while Verbier White, Melbourne Grey and an all-new G70-exclusive color, Bond Silver, make up the matte-finish options.

Luxury Updates Complement Driver-Focused Environment

The new G70ís driver-focused cockpit benefits from a number of useful improvements as well. A larger, wide-view 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system is positioned for easy reach at the center of the dashboard, and features both a Genesis-exclusive user interface and over-the-air navigation updates. The instrument cluster is also enlarged to provide better readability, and the wireless smartphone charger is enhanced to provide improved charging speed.

Finally, windshield and front door acoustic glass enhances interior quietness, making an already appealing environment more serene for all.

Improved Dynamic Driving Experience

The G70ís proven turbocharged, 2.0-liter, inline four-cylinder and twin-turbocharged, 3.3-liter, V6 carry over, as does the 2.2-liter, turbodiesel engine. All models benefit from the newly added "Sports+" drive mode, which further optimizes engine and transmission programming, allowing drivers to take full advantage of the G70ís performance potential.

In addition, the 3.3-liter V6 with Sports package benefits from the addition of a Variable Exhaust Valve System, which gives the car a more aggressive exhaust signature, and a new Dynamic AWD System offers a built-in drift mode.

Improved Safety & Convenience

The new Genesis G70 includes a wide array of improved driver safety & convenience features:

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)
Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)
Safe Exit Warning (SEW)
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA)
Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control (NSCC)
Lane Following Assist (LFA)
Multi Collision Brake (MCB)
Rear Occupant Alert (ROA)
Back-up guide lamp
The new G70 comes standard with a 10.25-inch infotainment system, including:

Over-the-air, wireless updates to the navigation system
Genesis CarPay
Voice-recognition car control
Valet Mode
Remote 360į view
Home Connect (Car-to-home, Home-to-Car)
Phone Connect (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto)
In addition, the new G70ís optional equipment includes:

Genesis Digital Key using NFC technology
Intelligent Front-Lighting System (IFS)
Wireless smartphone charging system
Rearview monitor
Built-in dash cam

The new G70 will go on sale first in South Korea followed by international markets in 2021.

It has similar silhouette to the Maserati Levante from the side, which I absolutely despise and I think its one of the ugliest designs in Automotive history... This looks a tad bit better proportioned and the interior is stunning and simplistic, nice job Kia

This looks nice, was a bit apprehensive since I am no fan of the GV80's styling.

I like it! I think the interior is gorgeous. Only thing I don't really like is the steering wheel design. Looks a bit retro but still functional i'll give it that.

The squiggly line trim is your toddler drawing on the doors, they just saved you some steps, even if you don't have a toddler.

I like it too. For her next vehicle, my wife is leaning toward a sport suv. Think the GV70 will at least get a test drive.

I can dig it. Hyundai did a nice job on this. Not my bag, but it will be great for those where something from this segment works for them.

I would say outside of that ridiculous steering wheel and that rear window, it looks pretty good.

Has a bit of an AMC Pacer (I.e. Garth's car from Wayne's World lol) vibe, but definitely is different and quite nice.

Very interesting design, especially that C-pillar which is very 928-esque. Overall looks pretty good, hopefully it drives like its G70 sedan counterpart.

The interior is tough for me I can't stand it ... I don't understand how others like it?! The steering wheel is the ugliest I have seen in a while

I don't like the steering wheel either. It reminds me of the S Class 2 spoke crescent style wheel.

I don't like the steering wheel at all, although from the very few press photos available, there is a sporty three-spoke steering wheel which looks better. I overall like the interior, just not a fan of the oval shaped control center housing the HVAC controls, I still think their GV80 and G80 interior design is better with the more angular and sweeping lines.

Looks nice inside and out, but not my cuppa.

Quarterpanel is too busy.

C-pillar motif is stolen from the Lexus RX.

Interior is dainty. Some people like dainty.

These will sell.

I think they were going for a topographic map theme.

I think the Mazda CX5 and CX9 are top of the class in design; sharp and soft at the same time. This is mundane at best.

I think the C-pillar treatment is actually pretty similar to that of a Porsche 928.

Makes sense.. plays into the illusion of offroad capability. Not sure there are many "luxury" SUVs built these days besides Land Rovers that can handle anything on the other side of a curb.

M-B G/GLE/GLS are solid off roaders. Not often talked about, especially GLE/GLS. It, however, is the case.
