2019 Genesis G70 News – The Genesis, Hyundai’s luxury brand, is developing a rival of the BMW 3 Series, which should debut by the end of 2017.
A new brand-now ripe for the big jump, in the 2016 Hyundai announced a brand new luxury, in the wake of the Japanese rivals Toyota, Nissan and Honda which, now almost thirty years ago, founded Lexus, Infiniti, and Acura. It is called Genesis and, at least for now, has the American and Chinese markets as the first goal. The range currently has two models, the Genesis G90 and G80, but soon there will be also a third. The spy photos that we have taken these days on the Nürburgring circuit leave no doubt. The Genesis is now in the final stages of development of the 2019 Genesis G70, a sedan that for size and character should go to confront the BMW 3 Series and its rivals: Audi A4, Mercedes C, and Alfa Romeo Giulia
Final stages of development – the 2019 Genesis G70 should debut already by the end of 2017 to be on sale in the first half of the 2018 and will have a rather classical setting. It is a four-door sedan with the tail, about 470-480 cm long which, as the images show, will be rather different from the concept that in 2016 anticipated the existence, the Genesis New York Concept (below). The camouflages of the specimen taken from our photographers are rather heavy Ancora, but already you can see the right proportions of the car body that do not escape the rule of the low and spinning roof, of the snout along with the back cabin and well “Aquattato” on the rear wheels.
2019 Genesis G70 Engine; Hybrid
Rear and hybrid – from a technical point of view the new 2019 Genesis G70 should share skeleton and mechanics with the recent Kia Stinger. Then expect the rear wheel drive (or integral) and the longitudinal arrangement of the front engine (in pure BMW style) with a refined suspension geometry to facilitate the driveability. The 2019 Genesis G70should lead to the production of the hybrid propulsion system seen on the Genesis New York Concpet, which can count on a 2.0 four-cylinder turbo engine combined with an electric motor and an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Also possible the adoption of the recent 3.3 V6 bi-turbo gasoline with 370 hp and torque of 510 nm for the most sporty version. If Hyundai were to decide to bring the Genesis mark in Europe, it would also be necessary to include a diesel engine, which could be the same 4-cylinder 2.2 capable of 202 HP and 441 nm which equips the Kia Stinger.
