Here's a fresh look at the luxury estate.
It has been a while since we've seen photos of the Genesis G70 Shooting Brake under development. These new shots catch the estate on the road near the Nürburgring.
Despite not seeing the vehicle for several months, the Genesis engineers aren't ready to strip off much camouflage yet. Looking past the concealment, it seems that the front end design is identical to the saloon with elements like split headlights, a diamond-shaped grille, and large openings in the lower fascia.

The vehicle rides on five-spoke wheels with a dark finish. Red brake callipers are visible behind them.
The engineers load the back with extra panels to conceal the shape of the hatchback. There are split taillights and a pair of exhausts coming out of the passenger side.
While not visible here, the interior should look the same as the saloon. This means there would be a stylish, somewhat understated cabin with a widescreen 10.25-inch infotainment display on top of the centre stack.
The estate's powertrain should be the same as the four-door, too. In America, buyers would be able to get a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder with 252 bhp (188 kilowatts) and 260 pound-feet (353 Newton-metres) of torque or a 3.3-litre twin-turbocharged V6 producing 365 bhp (272 kW) and 376 lb-ft (510 Nm) of torque. Both powerplants hook up to an eight-speed automatic, and customers can select rear- or all-wheel-drive layouts.
We expect the Genesis G70 Shooting Brake to debut at some point in 2021. Although, the exact date is not yet clear. Another question is where the brand intends to sell this model. Unlike Europe, the US isn't the strongest market for estates, and the GV70 crossover would seem to fit the needs of folks looking for something with a hatch.
