Default Genesis G70 Coupe Previewed

Should the build it? This rendering looks legit!



Genesis has kept quiet about the possibility of a coupe joining its lineup, but with the success of the new G70 sports sedan, the brand’s hiatus from the two-door market could be at an end.

Genesis built the G70 to take the battle to its German and Japanese rivals, and they’ve surprised everyone with a car that drives like a BMW used to – likely because Genesis employed BMW’s former M performance line boss Albert Biermann to make sure of it.

In fact, it’s been so good it won the North American Car of the Year award!

If the G70 Coupe did make it into production, as our artist rendering suggests, it would be a stunner, competing with the C-Class Coupe, 4 Series Coupe and Audi A5 – amongst a host of others.

Seen here in a stunning crystal red, it makes use of the brand’s newest grille design, as seen on the updated G90 luxury sedan.

Expert a slightly more aggressive stance and possibly larger wheels with lower profile tires.

Under the hood, we’d expect both engine options to be available, with the 2.0T making 255-hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, while the V6 turbo delivers 365-hp and 376 lb-ft.

Rumors have suggested Genesis is looking to roll out a performance trim option for the G70 sedan, and the G70 coupe could be just the excuse needed to debut it on!

With the sedan stickering for $35,895 for the 2.0T model and $44,745 for the V6-turbo, expect the coupe version to cost approximately $1,000 more – plus an extra $2,000 for AWD.

Back in 2016 a leaked future product document from Genesis revealed that the brand was planning a coupe version of the G70, which is set to arrive after the launch of the GV80 mid-size luxury SUV and right around the same time as the launch of the compact GV70 SUV.

The news came at about the same time, the brand debuted the G-Coupe Concept with a swoopy design.

Look for a Genesis G70 Coupe in about a year’s time. That should give the Germans long enough to get worried.
