Genesis’ 3-Series, C-Class and A4 rival, the G70, has just been introduced to the Australian market.
The luxury sports sedan is offered with two powertrains: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 240 HP and 353 Nm (260 lb-ft) of torque, and a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 with 364 HP and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft).
Both engine options are sold in three different grades. The range, therefore, consists of the G70 2.0T, 2.0T Sport, 2.0 Ultimate, and the 3.3T Sport, 3.3T Ultimate, and 3.3T Ultimate Sport. All models use an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.
Genesis sells all G70 variants with a five-year/unlimited kilometer warranty, five-year/50,000 km complimentary scheduled servicing, five-year 24/7 roadside assist, five-year map updates, and a five-year subscription to Genesis Connected Services and the ‘Genesis To You’ valet service.

Like the larger G80, all Australian G70s feature Genesis Adaptive Control Suspension, Dynamic Stability Damping Control and Electronic Control Suspension as standard. The suspension was tuned to local roads, building upon the comprehensive testing which Genesis previously did in the likes of Korea, Germany, the U.S., and Sweden for G70 models sold worldwide.
Moreover, all models come with seven airbags as standard. There is also the Genesis Active Safety Control suite, which includes Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with pedestrian detection, and a lane-change oncoming function, as well as a Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning system, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, a Surround View Monitor in Ultimate-badged models, Forward/Reverse Parking Distance Warning, and a Rear-View Monitor with parking guidance.
Prices for the entry-level G70 2.0T start at $59,300 AUD ($41,251 USD) and increase to $63,300 AUD ($44,034 USD) for the 2.0T Sport and $69,300 AUD ($48,207 USD) for the 2.0T Ultimate. The base 3.3T Sport model starts at $72,450 ($50,398 USD) and rises to $79,950 ($55,611) for both the 3.3T Ultimate and 3.3T Ultimate Sport.
