Genesis G70 Shooting Brake arrives in Australia, priced from $79,000


The wagon version of the Genesis G70 has now arrived in Australia with every feature the brand could throw at it – except for the biggest engine

The Genesis G70 Shooting Brake has finally arrived in Australia with a price tag that starts from $79,000 before on-road costs.

Available in a single grade, the G70 Shooting brake is specified with the same level of equipment as the G70 sedan when equipped with the Luxury and Sport Line packages, with the latter being available as a no-cost option.

The arrival of the G70 Shoot Brake marks a rare new addition into the wagon segment that has been thinning in previous years, though the BMW 330i wagon and Audi A4 45 TSI Avant will represent some fierce competition. 

Bigger boot, same style 

A key point of difference between the G70 sedan and Shooting Brake body styles is the growth of the boot size from 330-litres to 465-litres.

Those figures are according to the VDA standard and thus only tell half the story as that standard only measures the boot space up to the height of the rear seat – and buyers also gain a huge chunk of ceiling space not found in the sedan.

Genesis has included a feature that will automatically open the hatch of the boot when the car key comes within 50 to 100cm of the rear of the car to make access easier when your arms are full.

The face of the G70 remains unchanged, as expected, and the roofline keeps its coupe-like shape that end with a rear spoiler. The back end is complete with a revised set of Genesis’s quad lamp LED headlights that spill onto the rear hatch and sit about the dual-exhaust pipes.

Sitting at each corner are 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels finished in dark grey that can be combined with 15 exterior colour choices.

Under the bonnet of the G70 Shooting Brake

Genesis is offering its first car-based wagon exclusively with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine producing 179kW of power and 353Nm of torque.

This unit is coupled with an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission that sends power straight to the rear wheels, with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres fitted at all four corners.

Sadly, Genesis does not offer the G70 Shooting Brake with the same 3.3-litre twin-turbo petrol V6 found in the sedan that produces significantly more grunt at 274kW/510Nm.

However, keen drivers will be happy to learn that the G70 Shooting Brake comes standard with a limited-slip differential and a Brembo brake package.

A luxury focus inside

The decision to offer the G70 Shooting Brake in a single fully-equipped grade means the wagon has a significantly higher entry price than the sedan at $79,000 compared to $63,000 (both before on-roads) but buyers will receive a feature-packed vehicle.

Genesis has fitted an array of tech including a huge 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster with a 3D function and the marque’s signature ‘blind spot view monitor’ that beams up a live feed of your blind spot onto the screen when changing lanes.

Accompanying this display is a 10.25-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation and wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto – and can display the 360-degree camera when needed.

Other features a heated steering wheel, wireless phone charger, full-length panoramic sunroof, 15-speaker Lexicon sound system and a power-adjustable steering wheel.

Genesis equips the driver’s seat with 16-way power adjustment with a memory function while the front passenger receives 12-way power adjustment. Both the front seats and heated and cooled while the backseats only receive the heating function.

The seats are trimmed in quilted Nappa leather as standard with a Sport Line packaging (a no-cost option) that adds suede on the headliner and on the pillars along with sports pedals.

Safety features include 10-airbags and AEB with pedestrian, cyclist and junction detection along with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot collision avoidance and the aforementioned blind-spot view monitor.

The Genesis G70 Shooting brake is now available to purchase in Australia.
