New Winter Testing Genesis G70 Spyshots!

With the winter storms happening on the east coast it’s appropriate that we now have some interesting spy shots of the Genesis G70 testing in winter conditions!

Something that stands out is that there are now two different sets of exhausts which indicates there will most like be a few drivetrain choices.  These will probably follow the Kia Stinger choices which makes sense as they share the same platform.  The dual oval exhausts probably will go with a twin turbo 3.3l V6 and then you have the single dual tip rectangular exhaust that will most likely mate with the turbo 2.0l four cylinder engine.

The fact that they are testing this vehicle in cold weather climates possibly indicates that they are also testing an all wheel drive system.  Rumors have it that there will also be a hybrid system which would make the G70 line-up a fairly formidable one.

    Hyundai (and Kia) have reached the point now where everyone knows that they build a solid, reliable car – something that BMW and Mercedes used to be known for, but no longer are. It is therefore the perfect time for them to introduce these higher end “luxury sport” cars to leverage that reputation and take market share from the Germans.

    if the electronics of this car is good and reliable this could be a real competitor for Audi BMW and Merc-Benz entry level :o)
