G70 Shooting Brake – I must admit that sometimes I struggle to understand why the old-fashioned station wagon isn’t more popular these days.
I came to this conclusion when driving the Genesis G70 Shooting Brake this week.
Here is a stylish, practical, and comfortable vehicle that has an abundance of luggage space.
Inside its all luxury and comfort. Heated and ventilated quilted Nappa leather front seats, large driver digital instrument cluster including dash cams for blind spots.
Other technology includes a 10.5-inch infotainment system with inbuilt navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity and an extensive Genesis Active Safety Control suite.
Powering the G70 Shooting Brake is 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder producing 179kW and 353Nm and driving the rear wheels via an advanced in-house developed eight-speed automatic transmission.
Ride and handling can be modified by the drive mode select function.
For the more enthusiastic drivers there is selective Drive Mode with 5 settings: Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ & Custom.
It’s quiet, smooth, and compliant to drive and reasonably responsive. I would love to see a version with the 3.3L twin turbo V6 engine and AWD. That would be special.
The Genesis G70 Shooting Brake Sport is priced from around $76,700 plus the usual costs and its great value.
