South Korea just keeps soaring. The Asian nation is taking the world by assault; being one of the most technologically advanced
and digitally connected countries, taking on pop culture (watch “Parasite”, if you haven’t yet) and well, also taking the automotive world storm.
Hyundai Motor Company is one of the most successful Asian car manufacturers in the world, one that delivers trustworthy, well-made, gorgeous vehicles.
Its subsidiary, Genesis Motor, LLC, aims to please and dominate the luxury vehicle market, and it has enough ‘firepower’ to do so.
Let us meet one of its finest examples, the 2020 Genesis G70.
Handsome and powerful
The 2020 Genesis G70 is a sporty, handsome-looking sedan.
Curvy angles and an aggressive, but attractive front grill, give this beauty an imposing, gallant and agile figure and shape.
It should be noted that, under the hood, we can choose between a couple of engines.
The base version, the 2.0T, offers a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, with an output of 252 horsepower through an eight-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels.
Hp differs (for good) a little bit with a manual transmission, reaching 255 horses.
However, to be honest, the delicious, lusty, fierce power will be find in the second engine available: A twin-turbo 3.3-liter V-6, that delivers 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque.
This engine takes no prisoners, my friends. It will devour any road and highway that gets in front of it. You will enjoy it, that is guaranteed.
With the 2020 Genesis G70, we have three different trims at our disposition: 2.0T, 2.0T Sport and 3.3T.
Now, all trims are very well equipped, but in an effort of giving you a general landscape, let me tell you that the 2020 Genesis G70 has -and I quote Genesis website- “fully integrated technologies including an available Heads-up Display, a Surround View Monitor and touchscreen navigation”.
There is also a Surround View Monitor, that gives you ‘an all access’, 360 degree view around this gorgeous vehicle, allowing you to see normally unseen spots, for extra safety.
Quoting once again the Genesis website, on the safety front, you will not have to worry, since “In truest Genesis fashion, all of our most advanced safety features, like Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, come standard. Because there is simply nothing more important than you, your passengers and those around you”. Amen to that.
On the inside
You can feel the luxury running through this car ‘veins’.
It offers us a build quality like no other, impeccable design and layout and first class materials overall.
Its front seats are comfortable, but regarding the rear seats… well. Let us face that if you have tall friends, you will not want them back there -too little legroom.
Nevertheless, in general terms, this is an upscale vehicle, attractive to eyes and touch. Just gorgeous.
South Korea is not slowing down, at all.
They are taking the world by storm on different fronts, and as I said earlier, the automotive world is no exception.
The 2020 Genesis G70 is one of the finest examples of what this nation can do in the car manufacturing business, one that will endure in decades to come.
