2024 Genesis G70

The G70 release also sees the lineup refined to just one highly specified sport luxury grade in either a four cylinder shooting brake wagon or the V6 sedan. It competes against other mid-sized sedans like the BMW three Series and Audi A4.

Pricing and features

The G70 3.3T sport luxury sedan will cost you $88,000 before on road costs. That’s $7,000 more expensive than the 2.0 t shooting brake version, and places it right in the middle of its nearest rivals, but you get some fab features included.

Features include a sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, as well as a premium Harman sound system with 15 speakers.

The update also sees the G70 get an Intelligent Speed Limit Assist feature, Genesis Connected Services app, as well as over-the-air software updates.


The G70 sedan is absolutely gorgeous, and blue paintwork of vehicle really makes the crisp pleating across the body just pop out.

The muscular stance is much like its BMW rival, but the rear shaping is a lot softer. The front looks sophisticated, with the wide set LED lights and the black air intake vents.

The cool, sporty 19 inch alloy wheels with their red calipers also hints at what the V6 engine can do.

The interior looks really high good is white Nappa leather quilted upholstery and leather trims.

The dashboard looks robust and solid, but it is enhanced by the slick 10.25in touchscreen multimedia system and the digital climate control panel.


The front row has plenty of head and legroom if you’re not sharing the cabin with anyone else.

If there are adults in the back, you will have to scoot forward to accommodate their legs.

That being said, the seats themselves are pretty comfortable, although the passenger seat is less so than the drivers.

But it’s great that they both have adjustable lumbar and under thigh supports.

First Row

The individual storage space is all right, with a shallow glovebox and middle console two cupholders and quite small drink bottle holders in each door.

You also get some pretty good charging options up front with a single Usb-A and C port, a 12 volt port, or a wireless charging pad to choose from.


The multimedia system looks great and it is easy to use. The touchscreen is really responsive and I like that it has built in satnav as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are both wired.

The 12.3in digital instrument cluster is easy to read and is semi customizable.

The eight inch colored head up display is clear, and I like that it pulls through the satellite navigation directions and the traffic sign information.

I like that the sun visors are extendable, which is always handy, and You can move the passenger seat without leaving driver’s seat from the controls on the right hand side.

2nd Row

There is plenty of headroom in back row, but legroom is tight so if you are taller, you may find it a bit uncomfortable.

That being said, the seats themselves are very well cushioned and I love how you have heat function on the outboard seats.

I found this car to be quite low to get in and out of because of the 130mm ground clearance.


I really like the amenities in back row. You get hot and kick plates, two matte pockets, reading lights, directional air vents, two usb-C ports, cupholders in the fold down armrest, and very shallow bin holders in each door.

Because of the tall transmission tunnel and just the width of the seats. It’s best to think of this car as a four seater rather than a five seater.

And as such, even though you’ve got Isofix child seat mounts on the outboard seats and three top tethers, two seats are definitely going to fit best.

Front passenger comfort is also going to be compromised when a 0 to 4 rearward facing child seat is installed, too.

Boot Space

The boot is an okay size at 330l, and if things do roll to the back, it’s not too difficult to retrieve them.

The rear seat has a 60/40 split, and there’s a temporary spare tire underneath the floor.

This features a power tailgate, which are usually loved to have on a car, but I almost feel like it’s superfluous in this model.

Under the bonnet

The G70 3.3 T sport luxury sedan has a 3.3l V6 turbo petrol engine with a maximum power output of 274kW and 510 Newton meters of torque.

It’s a rear wheel drive and features an eight speed auto transmission. It’s got a great sense of power and can do a 0 to 100km sprint time in just 4.7 seconds.

Road Experience

The G70 is a beautiful car to drive. It’s graceful on the road, and there’s a really good well of power to dip into when you need to.

it’s as easy to drive in the city as it is on the open road, which is always lovely to have. The steering in this is really responsive and the car in general just feels very nimble to maneuver.

This suspension is on the firm side, and you might get a few little grunts when you go over harder bumps, but overall the ride comfort is actually really pleasant.

The cabin is generally quiet, but the wind and road noise does creep up when you’re hitting higher speeds, and it’s not really enough to intrude on chatting, but you’re not going to forget that it’s there either.

This is really easy to park because it has an 11 meter turning circle, a very clear 360 degree view camera system, as well as front and rear parking sensors.


The compromise to getting all of that power, though, is that she’s a thirsty gal. The official combined fuel cycle is 10.4 litre per 100km.

Based on the official combined fuel cycle and the 60 liter fuel tank. Expect a driving range of around 577km on average, so not as efficient as some other sedans out there.


The Genesis G70 has a great suite of safety features, and it’s almost a case of what doesn’t it have.

But a real highlight is the Blind Spot View Monitor, which pops a video feed of your blind spot onto your digital instrument cluster.

The G70 has a maximum five star ncap safety rating from testing done in 2018, and the update now sees ten airbags, which is outstanding for the class.


I’ve said it before, but the Genesis after purchase program is pretty good and hard to beat because you get up to five years or 50,000km complimentary servicing with the G70.

How good is that? The G70 also comes with a five year unlimited kilometer warranty, and the servicing intervals are at every 12 months or 10,000km.
