Revving up your driving experience to the next level

An athlete through and through, the new 2022 Genesis G70 Sport comes dressed in a tailored suit, matching its performance chops with style. 

Bold styling focuses on the Crest Grille in the front, set low and flanked by wing-like Quad Lamps. The side profile is sculpted with muscular leonine tension, looking ready to launch at a moment’s notice. And the rear end integrates LED Quad tail lamps, expressive badging and oval exhaust tips. 

The grille, bumper and fender trim and door handles are finished in Dark Chrome, adding to the mystique. And the aesthetics are completed with stunning dark 19-inch rims.

The G70 is motivated by a twin-turbocharged 3.3L V6, putting out 365 HP and a pavement-wrinkling 376 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with a quick-shifting 8-speed automatic and Genesis’ outstanding H-TRAC all-wheel drive system. 

Putting the hammer down catapults the car off the line, but the G70 isn’t just about raw straight-line power – it offers a delicious balance between supreme power and genuine athleticism and competency on the road. The precise steering is a delight and its adaptive suspension juggles comfort and sport, easily handling potholes and curves alike.

Traction on any surface is predictable and secure and powering out of high-speed corners is a dream, courtesy of the mechanical limited-slip differential. If you want even more engagement, you can use the shift paddles to change gears manually. 

The G70 lets you choose between a variety of driving modes – Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport + Smart and Custom – and the car’s steering, throttle response and even the variable exhaust system all react to your driving inputs differently based on your choice.

When it comes to bringing things back down to earth, the world-famous Brembo brakes provide ultimate stopping power while looking fantastic with their red calipers. 

World-class materials, best-of-class fit and finish, and modern styling all come together to present the driver and passengers with an interior for the ages. 

The heated and ventilated Nappa leather seats are as comfortable as they are supportive and the heated steering wheel is a delight in the hands of any driver. Rear passengers are treated to all the same beautiful trimmings, including heated seats. The trunk lid is powered for quick access. 

The G70’s array of cutting-edge technologies provide access to everything a driver needs for convenience, safety and comfort. 

The brilliant heads-up display gives all the information a driver needs without having to look down. Front and centre is a wide touchscreen that allows you to split its content into different parts of the screen. An astounding 15-speaker Lexicon audio system – with subwoofers under both front seats – will satisfy even the most discerning audiophile. Behind the scenes, the full suite of state-of-the-art driver assistance technology, including navigation-based smart and adaptive cruise control, works together to get you and your passengers to your destination confidently and safely. Even when you’ve arrived, the Safe Exit Warning system protects you from opening the doors when it’s unsafe. 

When it comes to balancing power and dynamic drivability with luxury, presence, style and comfort, the Genesis G70 does it all with ease.
