2021 Genesis GV70 detailed: Turbocharged engines, advanced safety confirmed for luxury SUV
Further details of the 2021 Genesis GV70 have been handed down today, confirming the Korean mid-size luxury SUV's engine line-up and active safety suite.
Three engines will be offered by Genesis, for a line-up identical to the larger G80 sedan: a 280kW/530Nm 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged petrol V6, a 224kW/422Nm 2.5-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder, and a 155kW/441Nm 2.2-litre twin-turbo diesel four-cylinder.
We talk a lot about road, tyre and engine noise when reviewing cars, applauding the quieter vehicles for their clever sound-deadening measures.
But these days, it's not enough just to minimise noise in a car – you have to eliminate it entirely.
Enter the era of noise cancellation in cars – the same concept utilised in those fancy headphones everyone uses on planes, but extended to an entire car.
The refreshed 2021 Genesis G70 has been revealed ahead of time this week, thanks to a pair of leaked photos.
Surfacing on The Korean Car Blog this week, these images offer our best look yet at the G70's complete front and rear makeover.
Where the premium sedan previously wore a handsome if somewhat anonymous look, its midlife refresh brings the car in line with the new-generation G80 sedan with its unique 'double-line Quadlamp' lighting and 'Crest Grille'.
Next generation Kia Stinger under a cloud – report
There may not be a second generation of the Kia Stinger, a report from Korean Car Blog has claimed.
It is the second time in less than 12 months the long term future of the turbocharged sports sedan has been questioned.
Last year CarAdvice reported Kia was undecided on whether it would build a successor to the current Stinger.
The Kia Stinger is a popular choice in Australia among former owners of Holden Commodore V8 and Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo sedans, and has sold well locally.
