Review

Few estate cars have the visual appeal of the Genesis G70 Shooting Brake, plus it drives well and comes with a lot of equipment for the money. Those good looks have compromised it as an estate car, though, so if you want something practical that’s also good-looking, go for the Volvo V60 or Audi A4 Avant.

Even the entry-level G70 SB comes with lots of standard equipment, including LED headlights, 17in alloy wheels, electric lumbar support, auto high beam, front and rear parking sensors and rear-view camera, dual zone air conditioning and a 10.25in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, built-in sat nav, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

We’ve yet to try the least powerful 194bhp 2.0-litre turbo petrol, but its 9.3sec 0-60mph time suggests it’ll need a fair bit of coaxing to get up to motorway speeds (less powerful versions of the Audi A4 Avant and BMW 3 Series Touring are swifter).
