The Genesis G70 Shooting Brake Debuts To Beautify Euro Wagon Segment.
The G70 Shooting Brake is based on the facelifted sedan unveiled in South Korea back in September 2020 and it largely echoes the design of its three box cousin. The corporate Two Lines signature has been carried over and is slightly more prominent on the wagon version as the split taillights extend onto the tailgate.
It is quite the looker and will undoubtedly serve as an interesting alternative to the traditional German trio. Technical specifications will be released in due course, although we are expecting everything to be carried over from its sedan counterpart. The car featured here has the 2.0-liters and AWDrive badges and it will be interesting to see whether the Shooting Brake will also be available with RWD and the bigger 3.3-liter V6.
The long roof G70 stretches at 184.4-inches long, 72.8-inches wide and 55.1-inches tall with an identical 111.6-inches wheelbase. Even though the footprint has remained intact the reshaped body has allowed the engineers to boost cargo capacity by 40 percent over the standard model. To aid practicality, Genesis is installing a 40:20:40 split folding rear bench.
The names of those two EV have not been revealed but we do know one of them is a dedicated electric vehicle so it is likely a crossover related to the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 underpinned by the E-GMP platform. The other could be the GV70 EV since it appears in a Hyundai Motor Group product roadmap part of a presentation sent to investors where it is listed as coming in 2022.
