Earlier this year, Genesis introduced a new two-line design language with the G80 sedan and the GV80 SUV. Spy photos show that the automaker is about to translate this into the smaller G70 sedan. Numerous spy photos have shown the updated and unmistakable design of the headlights and the many nuances of coating on a larger grille, as well as countless other minor updates. A new rendering video from the AtchaCars YouTube channel imagines what the G70 front end might look like when applying the G80 front design to its little brother.
One of the most notable changes is the design of the headlights. While the G80 and GV80 have almost horizontal headlights, the G70 rendering units are tilted slightly to give a more sporty appearance, which is imitated in spy photos. The rendering video also shows the lower bumper with its widened entrances pushed into the corners, which gives the updated face of the G70 a more sporty appearance.
The new look of the G70 will also coincide with a new engine. Genesis has already confirmed that the updated sedan will receive the 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the automaker, which will replace the 2.0-liter of the current car. The new mill could produce 290 horsepower (216 kilowatts) and 310 pound-feet (420 Newton meters) of torque, which the mill will produce in the Hyundai Sonata N-Line.
The Genesis G70, while being a smaller sedan in a crossover and SUV world, is important to the automaker’s bottom line, and substantial visual refreshment will only guarantee its position. In 2019, the G70 represented more than half of the brand’s sales, which doubled compared to 2018. The redesigned G70 and the brand’s first SUV, the GV80, should only further strengthen the brand’s sales. luxury. We don’t know when we will see the new G70, nor do we know when it will go on sale. It can arrive as a 2021 model year vehicle or slide until 2022.
