On tests seen camouflaged prototype updated Genesis G70 2022

Journalists captured the prototype of the updated Genesis G70 sedan. The debut of new items is expected next year.

The premium South Korean Genesis G70 debuted just two years ago in the 2019 model year, but the young luxury brand from Korea is already working hard on an updated version of the compact sedan. We have long seen camouflaged prototypes of the G70, looking at which all the same hints of new body features were visible. A couple of hours ago, our editorial office received “fresh” photos from the tests of the new G70.

It’s no secret that the updated version of the model will receive a new Genesis false radiator grille, which can be seen on the recently shown G80 crossover.

We saw its contour through the “heavy” camouflage on previous G70 prototypes, but this time, the body false panels were not used, which gives us the opportunity to better consider the new product. The corners of the grill are still hidden, and the detailed lines of the body are still difficult to see. But we see dual optics, the same as the updated G80 sedan and GV80 crossover.

You can also see new fenders, and another rear bumper with large oval outlets and redesigned taillights. The “heavy” camouflage on the doors suggests that there will also be changes.

We do not expect big changes in the interior of the novelty. Most likely, a larger screen of the infotainment system will appear, as the “bigger-better” trend does not show signs of slowdown. In this case, this also applies to the hood, as the current 2.0-liter engine should be replaced with a 2.5-liter turbocharged analogue. The eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is expected to transmit power to the rear wheels. A large turbo V6 engine is likely to be offered as well.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the production of the Genesis GV80 crossover has been suspended. The reason for this decision was the lack of components due to the epidemic of coronavirus.
