Gen­e­sis G70

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

The flag­ship Gen­e­sis G70 is the one we’re excited about – 272kw of twin-turbo 3.3-litre V6 in a cut-price, rear-drive Ger­man mus­cle-sedan hunter com­plete with lo­cally tuned steer­ing and sus­pen­sion. The most po­tent ver­sion is pow­ered by the same 510Nm donk as the Kia Stinger, wrapped in a more tra­di­tional medium, four-door pack­age. There will also be a 2.0-litre turbo four­cylin­der ver­sion aimed at en­try-level C-class, A4 and 3 Se­ries, but with Korean cost-of-own­er­ship, war­ranty and value equa­tion. Ex­pect the hard-hit­ter to do 0-100km/h in 4.7sec, use 11L/100km and cost about $75,000. The 190kw/353nm four will likely start at less than the Ger­mans with a fig­ure be­low $55K.
