2019 Genesis G70 previewed by New York Concept

The Genesis New York Concept previews the Genesis G70, which will take on the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, Lexus IS and Infiniti Q50.

The New York Concept, unveiled at this year’s New York Auto Show, will take aim at the Germany dominated field with rear-wheel drive, and optional turbocharged engines. The G70 will be based on the New York Concept, although with toned down details.

The Genesis G70 will slot in beneath the G80 (a rebadged version of the second generation Hyundai Genesis sedan), and the G90 (the Hyundai Equus replacement). The G80 will be in stores in 2016, while the G90 (badged as the EQ900) made is debut this year and will go to market soon.

The G70 will probably debut in 2018 as a 2019 model.
