Genesis G70 2019 review
The G70 marks Hyundai's first proper push into Australia's ultra-competitive premium market with its Genesis brand. But does it have the polish - and the power - to mix it with the big three of Germany?

Ah, wagons. Remember them? The Audi A4 Avant is a particularly handsome example of one, too, and it will cost you $71,400 for the 45 TFSI quattro S line.
Let’s start with the engine then - the 2.0-litre turbo will deliver 183kW and 370Nm, and a sprint to 100km/h in 6.0 seconds. It’s not lightning-fast, maybe, but the power feels plentiful for the nature of this A4.
That engine pairs with a seven-speed S tronic auto, and thanks to quattro, you get AWD. Also new is a 12-volt mild hybrid system that can lower fuel use by up 0.3L/100km - now a claimed 7.1L/100km on the combined cycle.
The Avant, or wagon, increases the A4’s dimensions to 4762mm x 1847mm x 1435mm, but also increases the cargo capacity to a considerable 495 litres with the rear seats in place, or 1495 litres with them folded flat.
You can expect AEB with pedestrian detect, an exit warning system, lane change warning, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera - all of which contribute to the A4's five-star ANCAP safety rating.
The high-tech stuff joins eight airbags (dual front, front side, side bags front and rear and curtains front and rear).
You’ll also find LED headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels, a new 10.1-inch touchscreen that's Apple CarPlay and Android Auto equipped, a smart key with push-button start, leather trim, three-zone climate, standard navigation, DAB+ digital radio, Audi’s Virtual Cockpit (a 12.3-inch digital display that replaces the traditional driver's binnacle), as well as sportier exterior and interior styling, frameless mirrors and illuminated door sills, and a better Audi 10-speaker stereo.
