- Genesis Model Type
- Genesis G70
I'm sure the PS4S helps with the acceleration a little as well as the lateral cornering and figure 8.as we start to receive more and more official test data, especially these head to head comparos, Genesis may have some explaining to do if data shows continual gaps between the G70 2.0T and competitors. it is reasonable, and logical, to expect one's 255hp G70 to be roughly equal to, say, a 330i which also has 255hp. given that enough of the other critical mechanical components (weight/gearing/etc) are also the comparable, we should not be seeing a delta of more than a few tenths. with this MW test, the delta is eight tenths 0-60 - almost a full second! sure, the 330i has 13% greater peak torque. but that doesn't explain the wide spread between times.
this has been discussed ad nausea already, but it will take a few more of these comparo tests, testing under similar conditions, to really expose if there could be a concern with the G70's numbers.
removing launch from the equation, the 45-65mph passing test also reveals a great divide of half a second to the 330i. if lag was the only issue, we should see the G70 close the gap a bit (or at least not lose more time) with the 330i for tests beyond 0-60. but that's not the case, either.
up until now i haven't been sold on the bust between the G70 2.0T and competitors. if we see several more tests like this one come in with similar numbers, like i said it may be time for Genesis to answer some tough questions.
i've heard there is an ECU update in Canada which may improve driveability or even add some power (?). i wonder if this is a fix...
Anyway the turbo is too small on our car!
Runs out of breathe easily around 5,000rpm.
The i30N and Veloster N have bigger turbos!
Best I could do stock was 6.0secs. And 5.5secs with the JB4. 200lbs lighter and maybe I can break 5.3secs.
