Genesis Motors Canada recently unveiled the all-new Genesis G70 compact luxury sport sedan in its Canadian debut during a press conference at the Montreal International Auto Show. Customers can pre-order the newest Genesis model beginning today through the brand’s comprehensive online purchase platform at www.genesis.ca. As with all Genesis models, customers can also take advantage of the exclusive Genesis at Home concierge service and have their new G70 delivered to their front door when the car arrives in Canada this spring.
The Genesis G70 is an athletic and elegant luxury sport sedan offering a graceful and dynamic exterior, a function-oriented interior, and two different powertrains – a 2.0-litre turbocharged I4 with an estimated 252 horsepower and a 3.3-litre twin-turbocharged V6 with an estimated 365 horsepower. With a rigid chassis and a wide-range of performance-enhancing components including Brembo® brakes, a mechanical Limited-Slip Differential (m-LSD), Michelin® Pilot Sport 4 tires, and a Nürburgring-tuned chassis, G70 will deliver a world-class driving experience.
As part of its standard features, Genesis G70 will offer a full-time active all-wheel drive system and advanced driver assistance systems including Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and more. Inside, the G70’s driver-oriented cabin features a highly-ergonomic design and luxurious finishes including quilted Nappa leather and brushed aluminum trim. State-of-the-art technologies like a full-colour Head-Up Display (HUD), a Multi-View Camera System, and customizable drive modes give the driver added confidence behind the wheel.
The all-new G70 will be available in six variations in the Canadian market, ranging from the well-equipped 2.0T Advanced to range-topping 3.3T Sport that encompasses all the model’s available luxury and high-performance features. For drivers seeking a more classic feel, the G70 range includes a special 2.0T Sport model featuring a six-speed manual gearbox, rear-wheel drive, and a compelling mix of equipment chosen with a focus on enhancing the driving experience.
The G70 is a compact luxury sport sedan completing the Genesis brand’s sedan lineup, joining the mid-size G80 and flagship full-size G90. Competing in the higher-volume compact luxury segment, it will further establish the brand’s presence in the luxury market.
Launched in November 2016, Genesis Motors Canada operates using a novel approach designed around the notion of bringing the purchase and ownership experience directly to customers, including at-home service and a complete online sales platform. By 2021, the Genesis product portfolio will expand to six models, including SUVs and potentially alternative powertrains.
