The Genesis G70 model series has been an exemplary model for the rest of auto brands who aim to make their name prominent in the segment of luxury sports sedans. The performing prowess of the Genesis G70 models is derived from the exclusive power combinations, especially if you notice the 2021 model year editions.
To ensure buttery smooth performance, each time you take out the 2021 G70, Genesis rounded up the features in each of its compartment with the best possible configurations, choice of materials and the most advanced set of technologies to support a sporty performance, commented a recent buyer of the 2021 Genesis G70 at the Conshohocken Genesis dealer.
2021 Model Year Edition Changes
The year 2021 brought the Genesis G70 some much awaited changes including some addition and subtractions as well. The 2.0T Sport gets duly replaced by the expansion of the 3.3T Elite package and now it contains a new heated steering wheel, adaptive headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, ventilated front seats, a wireless charging pad, front and rear parking sensors. All these come as standard on all models. The other noticeable change is the standardization of twin-turbo V-6 engine across the entire range of the lineup.
Tweaks for Luxury Performance
As a luxury sports car, the 2021 Genesis G70 presents an interesting bunch of performance related features that help these sedans move at top speed with unwavering grace. For this, the 2021 Genesis G70 models make use of the most effective engine and transmission that put a combined effort to ensure buttery smooth rides.
At the lowest form, the 2.0T trims feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 252 horsepower after mating to an eight-speed automatic transmission carrying the power to the rear wheels. But for those who want their 2021 G70 models to run on all four wheels, Genesis allows them this option at an affordable price, apart from the manual version. This particular engine has a unique personality with which it can handle any drive challenge with ease. What comes as an essential support is the instantaneous and intuitive responses of the driving components like the steering, accelerator and brakes, while the gearbox enables smooth gear changes as and when the onboard computer asks it to do so, as per its readings of the road and drive conditions lying ahead.
Among the entire range of powertrains, the twin-turbo 3.3-liter V-6 engine takes 4.7 seconds to gain the speed of 60 mph from a dead stop, since it is equipped with 365 ponies and 376 lb-ft of torque. The role of independent suspension cannot be denied, since it works towards ignoring the road imperfections and keeping the cabin bereft of hard jerks, even if it is driving through an uneven surface.
At the popular Conshohocken luxury car dealer, we test drove the 3.3T trim model of the 2021 Genesis G70 series, in which we got to experience the surprising effects of multiple drive modes that are enabled to suit the different drive conditions.
