Genesis will update the rival BMW 3 Series


In the Network appeared the pictures from the tests restyled version of the most affordable “chetyrehdverki” Korean brand. The official premiere is likely to take place next year.

On the home market, the Genesis sedan G70 was released in the fall of 2017, it opens a range of owned by Hyundai premium brand and the main competitors “chetyrehdverki” are BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Last year, the “seventies” in Korea was slightly updated, but the design at that time fresh models did not change, it just expanded the list of equipment – in particular, there are optional virtual “tidy”. Now preparing for the premiere of the G70 after a full facelift, transformed images of the sedan were uploaded on Korean websites Autospy and Bobaedream.

Car in the photo is Packed in a dense camouflage, however, the main new thing is still naked: lights and lamps made in the style of the flagship “chetyrehdverki” Genesis G90 and lighted on the eve of the Genesis crossover GV80 (by the way, this is the first SUV in the line of the brand). Even G70 got a new grille – I’m sure it was more, again, as the older models. Pictures of the interior yet. Most likely, the touch screen multimedia system increased in size, plus additional materials.


Some media tipped G70 new petrol turbo engine 2.5 and 3.5 with a return of 304 and 380 HP respectively. Pre-reform sedans in Korea is presented with a petrol turbo “four” 2.0 T-GDI (252 HP) V6 3.3 T-GDI (370 HP) and a turbodiesel 2.2 e-VGT (202 HP), all engines are equipped with an eight “automatic” and rear – wheel drive or full (with coupling connections of the front wheels).

The redesigned sedan is likely to debut next year. Former Genesis G70 at home in the “plus” in January-October 2019 implemented 14 131 car, which is 25% higher than a year earlier. For comparison, the sale of the family BMW 3 Series for ten months there was about 5100 units – about 36% less than in January-October 2018 (the collapse, apparently related to the scandal because of the burning “of the Bavarians”). And Mercedes-Benz C-Class (including coupe and convertible) in January-October this year went to South Korea with a circulation of 7581 instance (+19%).
