Almost everyone knows which model is Hyundai Genesis. This is a remarkable model from Hyundai Company, and a few years after this model hit the market, the new brand from Hyundai was introduced. That new brand is named after Genesis model, and the Genesis brand was introduced about two years ago. This new brand will be actually Hyundai’s premium division and we can definitely expect great models from them. First models were G80 and G90(Equus), those two had decent success in the market. One great future model should definitely be the new 2018 Genesis G70, which was derived from Genesis New York concept. According to Company, G70 will hit the market sometime next year, probably on the end of the year.
2018 Genesis G70 Exterior design
The exterior design of the approaching model will be very appealing like every Genesis model. The appearance of this model will be very similar to the G90 and G80 models, but the biggest similarity should be with Genesis New York. Although the vehicle is almost completely camouflaged, we can clearly say that have the same design language as two older brothers. The most recent 2018 Genesis G70 will look very attractive especially at the front side. Here, this model will feature a massive front grille with the new Company logo in the middle and with the some with horizontal slats. We can expect some chrome details around the grille and the air intakes.
Also, the front bumper will look very massive and it will be very aggressive. Here we can expect large air vents in order to improve engine performance as well as LED-powered fog lights in order to improve road vision in foggy or rainy conditions. Furthermore, the headlights of this model will be very stylish and it will use the next generation of LED technology. The roof of this model will be very sleek and that looks very nice. Compared to the G80 model, this one will have slimmer headlights and taillights. When it comes to wheels, we don’t know the exact size, but we know that will be made from aluminum materials.
Genesis G70 2018 Interior design
Unfortunately, photos of the cabin are unavailable and everything about the interior design is based on speculation. New 2018 Genesis G70 will probably borrow so many interior design cues and features from the larger G80 model and for sure from Genesis concept. Of course, we can’t expect space like in those two models, but we certainly expect a high dose of comfort and so many high-quality materials. Just like in the G80 and New York concept, all seats of the G70 model will have leather upholstery. Also, we can expect aluminum, wood and Alcantara materials. If this model shares some features with the G80 and concept, then we can expect a big 8-inch touchscreen(not big as in the concept), SiriusXM, automatically adjusted seats, USB auxiliary jacks, HD Radio, Bluetooth capability, modern air condition, adaptive cruise control, rearview camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and so many others as well. Optionally drivers will get Lexicon surround-sound system with 15-speakers.
Safety (Genesis Active Safety Control):
– pedestrian detection (FCA system lift’s the hood to absorb injury in the possible collision with pedestrian or cyclist).
– Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist,
– Highway Driving Assist,
– Blind spot Collision Warning
– Driver Awareness Warning.
Engine and Performance
Beneath the hood, the anticipated model will probably have two engine options. The base engine will most likely be twin-turbo, 3.3-liter V-6 engine borrowed from the G90 model. This engine will be capable of producing 370 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. From 0-60 mph it will run for 4.7 sec, with max speed of 168 mph or 270km/h.
The second engine option will probably be a 2.0 turbo turbocharged GDI (Theta-II), four-cylinder engine that will have a max power output of 245 horsepower as well as 260-pound-feet of torque.
Some rumors also suggest that we can anticipate diesel engine. If that is true, this powertrain will include an engine of the 2.2-liter diesel engine (R 2.2 VGT) with the max power output of 200 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque.
When it comes to the new Genesis G70 2018 transmission system we can expect a six-speed automatic transmission.
Dynamic features will have:
– Launch Control – it boost power control while accelerating,
– Motor-driven power steering – better handling and comfortable ride,
– Multi-link rear suspension – better handling and comfortable ride,
– Dynamic torque system – better cornering of vehicle
– Mechanical limited slip differential – safer driving at ice or snow, and rain.
Price and Release date
The 2018 Hyundai Genesis G70 release date of the future model will be probably in the second half of next year. When it comes to prices, we can expect a starting price of around $35.000-$37.000.
