Genesis G70 Shooting Brake. Who said station wagons are ugly?

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?
