Performance

The G70 is taking home wins and for good reason, Genesis worked hard at making it competitive in every respect to target sedans like the legendary BMW 3-Series. In the performance category, it features a 365 ponies from a 3.3L V6, helping the G70 to achieve a 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. All-Wheel-Drive, a Standard 8-Speed Automatic, rigid frame and optional Brembo brakes complete the engines output.

The sound of its inspiring exhaust note hints at the G70’s impressive performance credentials. The available 3.3L, 365-horsepower twin turbo paired with launch control pushes the G70 to a quick, confident jump off the line.

0-60 IN A BREATHTAKING 4.5 SECONDS
A standard 2.0L turbocharged GDI 4-cylinder engine delivers an exhilarating 252 hp. And an available 3.3L twin-turbo GDI V6 365-hp engine gives the G70 a quick, confident jump off the line, going from 0-60 in a breathtaking 4.5 seconds.*

AVAILABLE ADVANCED DUAL MODE ALL-WHEEL DRIVE
The sophisticated all-wheel drive system works in sync with Dynamic Torque Vectoring Control to deliver enhanced stability and quicker response on slippery roads.

AVAILABLE BREMBO® BRAKES
The confidence of extraordinary stopping power is the Yin to horsepower’s Yang. A race-bred Brembo braking system, featuring floating brake discs provides optimal performance.

STANDARD 8-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WITH SHIFTRONIC®
Power is delivered from engine to wheels seamlessly via the G70’s standard Shift-by-Wire 8-speed automatic SHIFTRONIC transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Rev matching flawlessly manages all shift points.

HOLD TIGHT AND LET GO ALL AT ONCE.
An extraordinarily tight, responsive ride is the result of a more rigid frame, exceptionally low center of gravity and electronically controlled sport suspension. The superior stopping power of available Brembo® brakes provides a heightened sense of confidence and security.

Of the most noticeable are its bold crest grille, available 19" sport alloys, audio-system-generated acoustics, tilt-and-slide sunroof, a driver-focused cabin with adequate sporty and elegant design cues, and optional 16-way adjustable driver seat.
Designed to make an instant and undeniable statement, the G70’s exceptionally low center of gravity creates a wide, dramatic stance. The sleek profile follows through, creating a powerful visual momentum drawing your eye from the aggressive crosshatched grille to the available sporty dual exhaust tips.

Safety

Advanced active safety systems have become standard features over the years and Genesis follows suit with the G70. For 2019 we get Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Smart Cruise Control, Blind Spot Collision Warning, Rear Cross-traffic Warning, Driver Attention Warning system and Lane Keeping Assist. Overall these ensure the highest levels of safety and significantly reduced odds of getting into a collision.

In truest Genesis fashion, all of our most advanced safety features and technology, like Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, are standard. Because there is simply nothing more important than you, your passengers, and those around you.

FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE ASSIST
Looking out not just for you and your passengers, but those around your G70, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection* can detect slower or stopped vehicles ahead, as well as pedestrians and bicycles.

SMART CRUISE CONTROL WITH STOP & GO
To help keep you in tune with the flow of traffic, Smart Cruise Control’s front-mounted radar sensor* detects the distance to the car ahead, automatically maintaining your distance and speed from that vehicle. Even after a full stop, speed and distance control is re-engaged when the car ahead starts moving again.

BLIND SPOT COLLISION WARNING
Blind Spot Collision Warning* alerts you when it senses vehicles in your blind spot or approaching at high speed from behind. Rear Cross-traffic Warning helps warn you of vehicles approaching from the rear sides.

DRIVER ATTENTION WARNING
Analyzing driving patterns, the Driver Attention Warning system* helps detect driver fatigue or distraction, and issues visual and audio alerts suggesting the driver take a rest when necessary.

LANE KEEPING ASSIST
Protecting you from unintended lane changes, Lane Keeping Assist* uses a windshield-mounted camera to monitor direction, then applies corrective steering assistance when necessary.

UNLIMITED POSSIBILITY COMES IN LIMITED NUMBERS
To celebrate its unprecedented introduction, the G70 will be offered in two very special limited editions of only 400 vehicles each. The sporty, performance-oriented Dynamic Edition and the aggressively stylish Design Edition.

Is there anything exclusive to those special editions that can't be equipped on the regular models? Most of what I've seen listed is similar to what you get in the Sport package.

I'm kind of disappointed we didn't get more design cues from the upcoming G80, I always felt this G70 had too many soft lines.

The Design Edition gets a special Black Forest Green exterior paint that's contrasted by a cream and dark green interior. The steering wheel is also wrapped in a special Pasubio leather. Dynamic has performance brake pads, a special tuning for the suspension and an upgraded cooling system.

G0 is due soon so maybe we'll see what might trickle down to the G70?

If not then some tuner like Hamann could get involved.

Not sure if these 'special editions' really warrant a $10k premium over the base models. I know they are limited production but the changes that have been made here are extremely minor.

Agree.

In cases like these dealers have shown they're willing to bargain and if that wasn't the intention from the start, odds are they're taking a loss on each model just to prop up the brand

They did similar special edition versions of the G90 last year, though I wasn't a big fan of the two tone color scheme. I imagine that most of the allocations are being reserved for their home market anyways.
