The 2022 Genesis G70 is getting drift mode
It's now acceptable to play Deja Vu in... a Genesis?
The 2022 Genesis G70 reveal has been pretty quiet, and it hasn't really made all that much fuss. That is, until now.
The refreshed G70 get a lot of new features, so let's dig right in. A lot of features in the G70 are luxury focused, like the use of acoustic glass in the windshield and front doors. Acoustic glass is essentially thicker windows, which means interior cabin noises will be reduced. The 2022 G70 does also get a 10.25-inch option infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, However, the best feature in my opinion is Genesis CarPay, which allows you to pay for your gas or parking fees without having to leave your car. With CarPay, you don't need to deal with all the peasants at the gas station, and you get to stay in your Korean cocoon.
The 2022 Genesis G70 keeps the same engine options as the prior model, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a 3.3-liter V6. The four banger makes 249 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, while the V6 makes 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. However, Genesis has added some new performance options to the G70.
The first of which is a new sports exhaust system which adds all of 3 horsepower, and more importantly, a meatier exhaust note. The second of which is a new mode called Sport +, which delays gearshifts and deactivates the engine start/stop system. But best of all, the Genesis G70, if equipped with AWD, comes with drift mode. It works by sending almost all the torque to the rear wheels to make the rear more tail-happy.
Overall, the refreshed G70 is a really solid option if you're looking for a luxury sedan. It offers a great combination of luxury and performance features. Pricing will most likely be below the $40k price range, judging by the current pricing of the G70. Until then, you can fascinate about playing Deja Vu in your Genesis G70, as you drift into your parking space at your office building.
