The 2024 Genesis G70 has been with us in North America since 2019 and for 2024 carries on with the same familiar Hyundai-Kia twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter Lambda II V6 engine that has been with it from the start.

Under the hood of the Genesis G70, it’s rated at 365 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 376 pound-feet of torque from a low 1,300 all the way up to 4,500 rpm. That’s what they call a flat torque curve. In the example we have here with the optional variable exhaust system, we add an additional 3 horsepower for a total of 368. It will run on both premium and regular fuel but less horsepower with the latter.

Following the air flow, the intake charge starts with two separate filter boxes that each feed into a separate turbocharger mounted low down below each cylinder bank. We’ll go with just one of them for the sake of simplicity.

Hard to see down there below, the turbochargers are considerably small and thus can spool up quickly with little lag. The air charge then travels down to below an air-to-air inter-cooler mounted low behind the front fascia, easily seen through the grille.

From there it travels back up to the main throttle body and into a composite intake manifold with variable runners. With its direct fuel injection, there is little of the fuel system to be seen from above, most all of it being hidden beneath.

Its aluminum 4-valve heads feature dual variable cam timing and have exhaust manifolds cast into them to allow the turbochargers to bolt directly onto them.

With 10:1 compression, pretty high for a turbocharged engine, all of the aforementioned tech features and computer controlled waste-gates help the engine attain its low lag and flat torque curve even on regular unleaded fuel.

Looking around the engine compartment, the G70 sports plenty of premium luxury car trims and trappings. Extruded aluminum cross bracing looks finely machined and complete sound shrouding surrounds the engine itself.

As far as servicing the G70 yourself goes, everything is easily seen and reached. The main fuse block is ahead of the passenger at the firewall, the windshield washer fluid right next to it. The battery itself is mounted in the trunk underneath to the spare tire.

Brake fluid and the oil level dipstick are found up at the driver side firewall, the brake fluid buried a little requiring a funnel to top off neatly. The engine CPU is down lower, just ahead of the brake fluid and next to the strut tower. .

Engine coolant is up front right at the radiator location. The oil fill cap is on top right of the engine where you would expect it and to its right is the oil dipstick noted by its bright yellow handle. The oil filter is located down low at the bottom of the engine and must be accessed from undeneath.

In the Genesis G70 we tested with its 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive the EPA rates it at 18 mpg city, 27 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined.
