The wait is finally over! The Genesis G70 is now available for purchase in Australia with a starting price of $59,300 AUD ($41,251 USD) for the base 2.0T.

Both the 2.0 liter and 3.3 liter engines will be available for sale and in total there will be 6 different variants of the G70 to choose from:
- 2.0T - $59,300 AUD ($41,251 USD)
- 2.0T Sport - $63,300 AUD ($44,034 USD)
- 2.0T Ultimate - $69,300 AUD ($48,207 USD)
- 3.3T Sport - $72,450 ($50,398 USD)
- 3.3T Ultimate - $79,950 ($55,611 USD)
- 3.3T Ultimate Sport - $79,950 ($55,611 USD)

There will be plenty of features that come with the G70 and the suspension will be tuned for local roads.

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.

Aussies will love the G70 as its a baby version of the V8 RWD commodore sedan when you really break it down.

CarAdvice posted their video review of it as well, good watch and slightly different perspective from American publications

The bit at the end about the Genesis dealers not negotiating on price because they're factory owned is pretty interesting. Especially if the market is as competitive as the reviewer says.

As Genesis establishes themselves I bet that will easily change.
Being able to control every bit of the process when launching is vital the brands success. Don't know when that will happen though. Genesis only plans to build 20 more dealers on top of its 320 right now. No mention of others.

Not if vehicle subscription programs really take off which I bet they will once Genesis launches more SUV's. At that point very few people will want to own one.
