- genesis europe posted photos of a camouflaged wagon, the g70 shooting brake, on instagram.
- the luxury korean automaker will enter europe this summer and has confirmed we won't get the g70 wagon in the states, just the sedan.
- it'll be powered by either a turbocharged four-cylinder or a twin-turbo v-6.
genesis will make its debut in the european market this summer, and with it will come a shooting brake, or wagon, model of the new g70, which will compete against other popular european wagons including the audi a4 avant and the bmw 3-series touring. however, sadly, genesis confirmed to car and driver that the g70 shooting brake won't be available in the states—we'll just get the new sedan.
the g70 received a significant redesign for the 2022 model year, giving it a similar look as its larger g80 sibling. genesis also welcomed the gv70 crossover to its lineup for 2022, which is based on the g70 sedan and will go on sale in the u.s. this year. the wagon version, the g70 shooting brake, looks just like the updated sedan but with a sloped roofline and more pronounced rear spoiler, similar to the design of the gv70 crossover. it retains the same dual oval exhaust tips as the sedan.
the 2022 g70 will use the same turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four and twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter v-6 engines from the previous generation. they'll be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and either rear- or all-wheel drive. and in even more bad news, the optional six-speed manual transmission will be dropped for the 2022 model year. genesis recently revealed its first electric vehicle, the electrified g80, and says more are on the way.
the 2022 g70 sedan, which will have a limited launch edition model in the u.s., will arrive this summer starting at $38,570.
