Find Out What The Facelifted 2022 Genesis G70 Is Like To Drive
BY BRAD ANDERSON
NOVEMBER 28, 2020
Carscoops & Asianpetrolheads


Hot on the heels of the unveiling of the 2022 Genesis G70, the updated sedan has been put to the test in South Korea.


Much like the pre-facelift model, the new one is sold with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing 249 hp and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) of torque as well as a twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 developing 365 hp and 376 lb-ft (510 Nm) of torque. South Korean customers can also order a turbodiesel 2.2-liter with 199 hp and 376 lb-ft (441 Nm), although the example tested here is the flagship 3.3-liter.

Coupled to the engine is an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to a new all-wheel drive system that includes a drift function. YouTuber Asian Petrolhead notes that the transmission shifts through the gears very quickly while also remaining smooth in all gears, including first.
In addition, he is full of praise for the all-wheel drive system and is blown away by the grip, thanks in part to the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires.

As with any recent Genesis model, the facelifted G70 is also an excellent highway cruiser and includes an excellent lane-keeping assist system to make long journeys that much easier.

The genesis g70 with 3.3 liter twin turbo restyle is bold and I like it. I believe the brands doing well although shopping four door sports sedans id lean tesla model 3 awd and or alfa guila.

The gentleman doing the “ new genesis g70 3.3 twin turbo “video was fun to watch. Thanks for posting up.

I finally got to see one of these this eve in town, a white diamond color. It was right beside me in traffic and I'm like what the hell is that? This is a really nice looking car in person and it has presence.

The Korean brands ( Genesis, Hyundai, Kia) make the best looking mainstream ( non-luxury) vehicles in my opinion and its not even close. Honorable mention to Mazda.

Unlike GM/Chevrolet and some of their ill advised creases or flourishes. ;)

That Character line on the side has outlived its welcome
Along with that side scalloping on the Malibu, in which I read somewhere that the designer(I'm not sure who) had scooping ones hand through a sand drift as it's origin. :eek:

I was not discussing Malibu's design, Its unique and takes some getting used to, however, it does fit the cars profile.. I though the previous Regal had a really dramatic take on side character lines
