The Genesis G70 Shooting Brake variant continue its development test and it was captured near the Hyundai Motor Group R&D Center in Namyang, South Korea by our colleagues from AutoPost. The vehicle was caught with testing exhaust system.
There has been a lot of rumors lately whether the Genesis brand should be offered in Europe (expected at some point during 2021) and this could very well be one of the models that should be interesting for Europe and also exclusively.
The Genesis G70 Shooting Brake would then compete against the recently revealed VW Arteon Shooting Brake and the regular G70 of course against the Arteon or even Mercedes C-Class. As for now its hard to tell you how much the cargo space will be but it looks more of a life-style wagon than a car you buy for maximum luggage.
Looking at the rear design, it will have the same third brake light with a V-shaped design placed in the top of the rear window, like the GV70. The front end is of course also camouflaged due to the fact that the G70 already received a facelift giving it more of the looks of the larger G80 and GV80. Apparently even the rear taillights looks very similar to the G70 Sedan.
In the latest images, we can see that the tailgate fall could be more pronounced than expected, while Genesis still wants to hide using some float, so we are not sure if it will be as striking as rivals like the Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake or more classic as Mercedes C-Class Wagon.
About the powertrain, there are rumours that for the European market, Genesis could use the 2.5 and 3.5 instead of the 2.0 and 3.3
