Oman- Genesis G70 resets performance, luxury expectations


(MENAFN- Muscat Daily) Muscat- A new era for luxury motoring has dawned, with the official launch of the highly anticipated Genesis G70 luxury performance sedan. The G70 was recently unveiled in Seoul before officially going on sale in Korea. Timing for its rollout in other markets will be announced soon.

The Genesis G70 is an athletic sedan characterised by its graceful and dynamic exterior styling, elegant and intuitively designed interior and choice of three different powertrains: A turbocharged 3.3l gasoline V6, a 2l turbocharged gasoline I4 and 2.2l I4 diesel.

The G70 also incorporates numerous advanced driver assist systems and a high level of connectivity with server-based voice recognition technology using Kakao Corp's artificial intelligence platform. Genesis launched the G70 at a special festival in Seoul's Olympic Park.

Manfred Fitzgerald, head of Genesis Division, said, 'The launch of the Genesis G70 is an important milestone for our brand. We deliberately chose Seoul, as this is our place of origin. This is where we are coming together with our customers and friends in the music industry to celebrate as a people's festival.'

The all-new G70 showcases the future direction of the Genesis brand's design identity. Athletic elegance is represented in the exterior styling, as the car captures both beauty and tension, like an athlete poised to perform.

Luc Donckerwolke, head of Genesis Design, said, 'At Genesis, we shape fascination and desire with the passion, dedication and talent from our designers. We modulated all parameters from the Genesis DNA to tailor a sports sedan. This challenge required the highest skills and know-how. The G70 is designed to captivate all senses with its sensuous and tensioned muscular volumes.'

Sophisticated, elegant and driver-focused

The long hood and short front overhang, elegant roofline and assertive multi-spoke alloy wheels combine to form a sleek, dynamic profile, subtly highlighted by dark chrome aero trim, hockey stick daylight opening and parabolic sidelines.

From the front and side, the prominent crest-type grille, character lines extending from the hood emblem and pronounced air intakes, communicate muscular performance. Two distinctive linear LED DRLs on each side of the large crest grille foreshadow the future Genesis signature quad lamps.

In the rear, the LED rear combination lamps continue the quad lamp theme, while the raised trunk lid and compact bumper designs give the G70 a poised character. The rear lamps, evolved from the G80, have been stretched to convey a dynamic stance.

The G70's interior is configured to prioritise an excellent user experience, with superb fit and finish throughout. The interior packaging reflects simplicity, with an emphasis on genuine functionality instead of gimmickry. A horizontal layout brings a sense of stability, with intuitively laid out switchgear and a comfortable, assertive sport steering wheel.

Genesis designers employed premium materials throughout, including aluminium door handles, quilted leather door panels, metal speaker grilles and high-quality soft touch surfaces, in a wide range of unique and sophisticated colour options.

Nappa leather seats further add to the dynamic yet elegant interior.

Driving character: Agile yet safe, dynamic yet quiet

The G70 offers three powertrains internationally: A 3.3l V6 gasoline turbo, 2l I4 gasoline turbo and a 2.2l I4 diesel. The Lambda II 3.3l V6 turbo GDI engine is the heart of the enthusiast-focused G70 Sport, with 370PS and maximum torque of 52kgf·m, 0-100kmph acceleration in 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 270kmph.

Variable-ratio steering and electronically controlled suspension are standard to provide an agile steering response and an optimal ride-and-handling experience.

The G70 2.0 turbo gasoline model is equipped with the Theta-II 2l turbo GDI engine, with 252PS and maximum torque of 36kgf·m. (Sports package: 255 PS). The G70 2.2 diesel model is equipped with the R 2.2 VGT engine with 202PS horsepower and maximum torque of 45kgf·m.

Dynamic performance features:

These features include Launch Control to maximise power control in acceleration mode; rack-mounted, motor-driven power steering (R-MDPS) and multi-link rear suspension for precise handling and a comfortable ride; dynamic torque vectoring system to improve vehicle cornering control and mechanical limited slip differential (M-LSD) for safe driving capabilities in low friction road conditions such as rain, snow and ice.

The seat positions have been adjusted to lower the centre of gravity of the car to maximise performance. The Active Sound Design (ASD) system creates an aural character that reflects the engine load and driving mode settings. Overseas G70 specifications are planned to be announced in early 2018.
