Genesis presented the G70 luxury performance sedan at the Hyundai-Genesis Design Center in Namyang.

The G70 offers three powertrains – a 3.3-liter V-6 gasoline turbo, 2.0-liter inline-four gasoline turbo, and a 2.2-liter inline-four diesel. The G70 Sport is equipped with the Lambda II 3.3-liter V-6 turbo GDI.

The G70 Sport has 0 to 62.5 mph acceleration in 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 168 mph. Variable-ratio steering and electronically controlled suspension are standard.

Dynamic performance features include launch control; rack-mounted, motor-driven power steering and multi-link rear suspension; dynamic torque vectoring system; and mechanical limited slip differential for safe driving capabilities in low-friction road conditions.

The G70 also incorporates advanced driver assist systems such as Highway Driving Assist, nine standard airbags, active hood function, and connectivity with server-based voice recognition technology, using Kakao Corp’s artificial intelligence platform.

The 10 exterior colors available include Platinum Silver, Carbon Metal, Marble White, Titanium Black, Racing Gray, Graceful Gray, Lapis Blue, Royal Blue, Blazing Red, and Umber Brown.

The passenger cabin is available in five different colors: Obsidian Black, Sandstorm Gray, Velvet Burgundy, Tobacco Brown, and Vanilla Beige.

The G70 goes on sale in Korea on Sept. 20, with timing for its rollout in other markets to be announced soon.
