Car video reviews:

Segment: Compact
Infotainment: Apple CarPlay icon Apple CarPlay   Android Auto icon Android Auto  

Hyundai’s most ambitious project, the Genesis, was a rear-drive premium saloon that competed with cars like the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class and other Lexus and Jaguar vehicles in its class.

The Genesis G70 had the same platform the KIA Stinger used, meaning short overhangs and a stiff body, with either a rear-wheel-drive or an optional four-wheel-drive.

The top-of-the-range G70 was equipped with a V6 responsive engine, that was also available with the KIA Stinger. If changed to the “sport” mode, the usual V6 sound changed to a more muscular note. The engine was mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The G70 had 5 different driving modes, the “Eco”, “Smart”, “Sport”, “Comfort” and “Custom”. The Eco mode was suitable for heavy traffic, managing to reduce fuel consumption. The “Custom” mode allowed the driver to set up the powertrain and the electronic dampers if equipped.

The cabin of the G70 was equipped with high-quality materials and nice detailing, the seats were very comfortable and the driving position created a nice cozy place to be in.

Like its most competitors, the G70 had analogue dials and a high-resolution 8-inch touchscreen. The infotainment system was intuitive, as well as the HVAC controls.

The Executive Vice President of Hyundai about the G70: “ For me, the G70 has special meaning. Key targets were driving position and fun to drive, but comfort also was very important”. And his words pretty much describe the car.
