The Australian market has recently been informed about the 2024 Genesis G70 range. For the 2024 model year, the automaker's local division has reduced the number of models in the G70 lineup to two. Sadly, Australian consumers cannot place an order for the new 2.5-liter four-cylinder that was released in international markets.
The G70 Shooting Brake Sport Line Luxury, which is only offered with the company's entry-level 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, sits at the bottom of the range. The new 2.5-liter turbo-four engine that is available elsewhere has 300 horsepower and 422 Nm of torque, whereas this engine's maximum output is only 240 horsepower and 353 Nm of torque.
The G70 Shooting Brake starts at AU$81,000 locally. Brembo brakes, rear-wheel drive, and a limited-slip differential are standard on all models. Intelligent Speed Limit Assist and updated Genesis badges are additional updates included in the 2024MY version.
In prior model years, the G70 sedan was available with a 2.0-liter turbo-four or the flagship 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V6, but only the 3.3-liter has been retained for the 2024 model year. This engine still produces 367 horsepower and 510 Nm of torque, and it is coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission that distributes power to the rear wheels.
Additionally, a limited-slip differential and Brembo brakes are fitted to every G70 sedan model. Additionally, they get an active variable exhaust.
The only modifications for the 2024 model year are a new 6-inch touch climate control display, a frameless electro-chromatic rearview mirror, an additional USB port in the second row, and support for over-the-air updates and connected car services. Local pricing begin at AU$88,000, and the G70 sedan's only option is AU$2,000 matte paint.
