2019 Genesis G70
“The foundation for any kind of car that performs well dynamically is an incredibly rigid platform,” said Albert Biermann, President and Head of Vehicle Performance Division of Hyundai Motor Group. “That translates not only to performance, but how it feels down the road as well as safety achievement levels.”
The synthesis of iconic elements of the Genesis design ethos, Athletic Elegance, contribute further to a sleek, aerodynamic design. G70 has the lowest overall height and widest overall stance in the segment providing exceptional dynamic performance from the resulting low center of gravity. The kinetic form language of G70 was engineered to return a sleek 0.28 Cd, allowing G70 to slip through the air. When fitted with aggressive 19-inch wheels and Michelin® Pilot Sport 4 summer tires, G70 returns 0.29 Cd.
Through the extensive application of hot-stamped parts and reinforced connecting structures, G70 has among the strongest body structures in its segment. Strategic use of lightweight aluminum for the hood and strut tower reinforcement bars helped the G70 lower its center of gravity. An integrated frame reduces the number of physical parts needed to strengthen G70.
Fundamentally, the robust, reinforced structure is part of an effort to provide class-leading occupant safety, just like other Genesis models. The additional benefit of such a rigid body structure is the ability to finely tune the suspension for both excellent ride quality as well as superb handling dynamics.
