The 2019 Genesis G70 is headed to the Russian market following a recent ceremony at The Museum of Moscow. Over 500 guests and influencers joined the Genesis brand for a music festival that ultimately welcomed the G70 to Russia. In the Russian market, the G70 will come in five trim levels: Premier, Elegance, Advance, Sport, and Supreme.
“The launch of G70 in the Russian market confirms our strong commitment to deliver customer-oriented models that combine innovative technology, superior design, and the latest engineering advancements,” said Alexey Kalitsev, Managing Director of Genesis Brand in CIS.
Expansion & Design
The G70 is the brand’s foothold in an already competitive entry-level luxury segment. The car rounds out the Genesis sedan lineup alongside the G80, G80 Sport, and flagship G90.
“The brand will continue to expand its product portfolio to all areas of the luxury auto market,” reads a statement from Genesis.
The G70 is characterized by the company’s “Athletic Elegance” design language, which consists of a long hood, short overhangs, and high beltline. From the side, Genesis notes the “parabolic character line” that accents the curves and smooth surfaces alike. Similar its sedan stablemates, the G70 features the Genesis Crest Grille with LED daytime-running lights.
Power & Performance
The 2019 G70 for the Russian market will be offered with two different four-cylinder engines with 197 and 247 horsepower respectively. Engine availability will depend on trim level. In the United States, the G70 is offered in both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, although Genesis was not exactly clear in their press materials if this would be the case in Russia.
The G70 will have a generous array of safety features with the Genesis Active Safety Control package.
In the basic version, the G70 is 1,949,000. The G70 in Elegance starts from 1,999,000. Advance (197 horsepower) – from 2,249,000 and the Supreme from 2,709,000. The G70 Sport is 2,899,000.
