Genesis Reveals Stunning G70 Shooting Brake

The practical G70

  • Don’t call it a wagon

  • Euro-special marks the beginning of Genesis in Europe


The Genesis line of crossovers are all wonderfully styled models (well, except for maybe the rear bit of the GV70), but this latest offering from the automaker is the one we want most. Of course, it’s not a crossover, so we probably won’t, but behold the Genesis G70 Shooting Brake that has just been introduced for Europe.

It’s the Genesis G70 sedan, but more practical. And more stylish thanks to the extra bit of roof that extends rearward and adds a certain level of added class to the model. In profile, it resembles the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, and if you’re to resemble another five-door car it’s hard to do better.

While many wagons shorten their overall compared with the sedan, the G70 Shooting Brake will be the same as the sedan, 4,685 mm long on a 2,835 mm wheelbase. Luggage space, though, is 40 percent larger and it likely has more headroom for rear passengers.

The hatch, which Genesis refers to as the trunk, because don’t call it a wagon, has a one-piece wrap-around rear glass which helps tie the piece into the slope of the roof. The Genesis quad-lamps at the rear extend slightly into the tailgate’s sheet metal as well, rather than making an unnatural cut at the shut-line.

The inside is the same as the sedan, which Genesis refers to as having the cockpit of a fighter jet.

This model is part of the beginning of the expansion of Genesis into Europe, which the brand refers to as “the home of premium luxury cars.” Competing with the likes of BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi on their home turf. G80 and Genesis GV80 orders open there this summer, with the G70 and GV70 soon after. No word on when the wagon will go on sale there, but Genesis did refer to it as their fifth car there, so expect it last.
