I also think that the front 3/4 view has hints of the Mazda 3

yeah.. very mazda-ish .. the seat looks very VW-ish with the diamond stitch

 

volkswagen-golf-edition-2014-5.jpg

 

Is this rear wheel drive by any chance or its just a more expensive Elantra Sports ?

 

While the handling was predictable there’s plenty of body roll and the G70 doesn’t react with the same directness of BMW’s 3-Series or Audi‘s A4. The electronic power steering also lacks a linear progression, particularly in Sport mode where there is a lightness off-centre but then significant weight when you wind more lock on. The additional weight doesn’t bring any meaningful benefits in terms of feel, so hopefully the Australian tune will be better.

 

Looks like if price like a Mazda 3 will be quite tempting ..

based on the initial reviews, all versions of the G70 come with rear wheel drive (with all wheel drive option), 8-speed gearbox, torque vectoring, mechanical limited slip differential (LSD) and even launch control, G meter and lap timer... as standard..

 

.. so i guess it should drive better than an elantra sports... lol. [laugh]

 

2.0 Turbo version with 248 bhp will probably be the hot seller.. if it becomes available locally and priced right..

you sell a new entire fleet of so call "luxury" car without a steep discount, who wants to take the risk to buy...? 

 

So it has to be price at a sweet spot that is too hard to refused.

 

Case in point. Infinity... do you see a sell out take up rate ?

 

Rear wheel drive. 2.0 engine. 

 

Even the G30 which is a reskin A class, also going no where. 

 

Unless the car is soooooooo technologically superior , I doubt no one would come out hard cash for a korean Luxus

 

And the profile segment that KMC is chasing after? If its the merc or BMW owner, whats the lifestyle experience that comes with the car ?

 

You can only begin with the Camry and Mazda 3 2.0 category to try to inch your way to the market with a price band.

 

When the innovation consumer curve hit 10%, thats where the 34% starts to bite.

 

early adopters will not queue up at KMC for 8 hrs just to book this car like Apple product. That much I am sure.

When I first saw the pics of the G70 I also thought I was looking at a Mazda 6. I was thinking facelift for the 6. LoL...

 

So I Googled to look for the concept car for the G70.....Looks far from it. Concept looks too radical from the real wan.

I don't see Genesis cars on our roads. I think one hand is more dan enough to count.

 

I know the Koreans have been making a lot of big luxury sedans for their domestic market from the longest time. But what I see is that they are lacking is new innovative technology. What I see mostly are "rip-offs" from existing makes from Germany and they put it in their cars.

They are no doubt good in their engineering dept but they lack something distinctive like only the Koreans have. They need to spend more on R&D.

It's really not for our market... it's aimed squarely at US & Europe... and hopefully China...

It's not just Singapore. Everywhere people look at brand first, there is always a perception of which brand is "better". If you are a "lousier" brand, it's hard to sell if you price similar or above the "better" brands.

 

Q50 is a good car for the price IMO. If I had 180k to choose between 318 or Q50, I would pick Q50.
