Model variants are an expensive proposition for European car manufacturers. It must be developed and approved in accordance with European Union regulations and then marketed as well. Versions like the Station Wagon can’t even be sold worldwide because customers in Asia and the United States are more into sedans and SUVs. Such a version is only logical if you also believe in its success.
Genesis seems to believe in it. This year, the luxury brand from the Hyundai Group also launches the G80 sedan and GV80 SUV in Europe, two years later. This will be followed by the smaller G70 and GV70 models, among others – and the fifth innovation for Europe is a station wagon called the G70 Shooting Brake.
Luggage compartment is much larger
Shooting Brake – This is what Mercedes or VW also calls their station wagons if they want it to look more stylish. The new Genesis is based on the G70 sedan which is 4.69 meters long with its somewhat discreet grille and rear hatchback with 40 percent more storage space than the sedan. Genesis has not released the details yet. The rear seat bench will fold in a 40:20:40 ratio.
Not even with regard to drives. The G70 likely shares that with the G80: the kit includes a 304hp four-cylinder petrol engine, a 3.3-liter V6 with 380hp and a 210hp turbo diesel – the latter should also only run in Europe. Prices have not yet been set.
