Genesis just unveiled the shooting brake variant of their G70.
For the uninitiated, shooting brake translates to wagon. In this case though, the G70 wagon qualifies more to be called a station-wagon, than a wagon, owing to rear doors. Sadly this trim would only be available in Europe.
This is a shame, given the car looks pretty snatched, however that doesn’t change the fact that the EU market has a ton lot of buyers for wagons, than in the US or other parts of the world.
With a 40% increase in the cargo space, every other spec in regards to the powertrain remain unchanged from the G70 sedan.
The G70 sedan and this beauty right here, offer a turbo 2.0 litre inline-four and a twin-turbo 3.3 litre V6. Both of these engines could be mated to either a rear-wheel drive or a four-wheel drive configuration.
The 3.3 litre V6 has got 365 horses under the hood and is a sweet ride with 376 lb-ft torque.
All though there is a technical misinterpretation to its moniker – the G70 ‘shooting brake’, this long roof vehicle looks sweet enough for us to overlook that.
Quick question : Would you vote for this G70 wagon over a mainstream Audi A4 Allroad and a Volvo V60?
