GENESIS Motors Australia’s evocatively styled G70 Shooting Brake is said to combine the best traits of a sportscar and a station wagon. Priced from $79,000 (plus on-road costs), the variant is powered by a 179kW/353Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that propel the rear wheels via Genesis’ proprietary eight-speed automatic transmission.


While the front-end design of the G70 Shooting Brake is characterised by the Korean premium brand’s signature quad-lamp architecture and crest grille, the ‘wagon departs from its sedan sibling’s styling with twin parabolic body lines that accentuate the wheel-arch flares and a swoopy rear spoiler that appears to float above the single-piece glass hatch – a characteristic also visible in the newly unveiled X Speedium Coupe concept.


The G70 Shooting Brake offers a luggage volume of 465 litres, compared with 330 litres for the sedan (VDA figures). The G70 Shooting Brake’s tailgate is electrically operated and can be opened automatically via the vehicle’s smart key.


The new model’s general specification is said to combine the G70 sedan’s Luxury and Sport Line Packages. A Brembo brake package and limited-slip differential are fitted as standard, as are touch-type door handles, electro-chromatic mirrors, as well as a panoramic sunroof.


A no-cost optional Sport Line Styling Package, which incorporates Sport Line interior, 19-inch sport alloy wheels, sport grille and dark chrome exterior highlights, is also available.


With the standard Luxury Package, the Shooting Brake’s interior features quilted Nappa leather trim combined with aluminium trim inserts. The optional Sport Line styling package adds sportier quilting, bespoke swirl-patterned aluminium inserts and sports pedals.


Standard interior appointments include a 12.3-inch digital instrument, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system (that offers smartphone-mirroring technology and incorporates a surround-view monitor), a dual-zone climate control system with heated- and ventilated front seats, laminated side glass and a wireless phone charger.


In terms of the safety suite, G70 Shooting Brake comes equipped with 10 airbags, as well as an extensive array of Genesis Active Safety Control driver assistance and advanced active safety technologies.


Among these systems are forward-collision and driver-attention warning with leading vehicle-departure alert, forward- and rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist with junction turning function, blind-spot cameras and collision-avoidance assist, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go function, lane-keeping and following assist, adaptive headlights, safe exit warning and rear occupant alert.


Included in the package (from new) are a five-year/unlimited kilometre comprehensive warranty, complimentary scheduled servicing for five years/50,000km and five years’ access to the Korean luxury brand’s concierge, courtesy vehicle, and valet services plus a premium roadside assistance program.
