Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

A Genesis G70 Shooting Brake in Premium Line trim undercuts all its main rivals on price, except for entry-level petrol versions of the BMW 3 Series Touring and Volvo V60. Meanwhile, nothing comparable is cheaper if you’re after a diesel engine. 

Sadly, the G70 doesn’t fare well when it comes to economy and emissions. All its official WLTP figures are significantly worse than those of rival estate cars, and there isn’t a company car tax friendly plug-in hybrid option.

Overview

If you’re after an executive estate that comes with lots of toys and stands out from the crowd, the Genesis G70 Shooting Brake delivers. However, in most other respects it's well off the pace, with the majority of rivals more practical, quieter, better to drive and cheaper to run, whether you're a private buyer or a company car driver.

  • User-friendly interior
  • Well equipped
  • Five-star safety rating
  • Tight boot and rear space
  • Horribly unrefined diesel
  • Disappointing fuel economy
