Genesis to take on Germans
The Hyundai-owned premium car brand, Genesis, will soon have a mid-size luxury car out to steal buyers away from the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4.
It will be known as the Genesis G70 and the guys at Automotive News in the U.S. have just published the below spy shot of the new Genesis model under testing.
If it looks a little familiar, that’s because it will share the same platform as the Kia Stinger.
Being tipped for a debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the Genesis G70 will be the first Genesis car that didn’t first wear the Hyundai badge when it comes to market.
Expect to see a choice of 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and 3.3 litre V6 twin-turbo petrol engines when the model comes to market in 2018.
