Forget physical gauges, Genesis is going 3D!
When Genesis first showed off its compact G70 sedan, we were extremely impressed. The G70 is an excellent sports sedan and we loved it during our first review of the car. It rides on a shortened version of the Kia Stinger's platform and is powered by the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 3.3-liter V6 engines, making it as good if not better than the Stinger.
Unfortunately, the G70 has been repeatedly delayed and some Genesis dealers still don't have any to sell. The G70 also has to contend with an all-new BMW 3 Series, so Genesis may need to add something special to set its car apart.
Clearly, Genesis agrees because the Korean automaker is now previewing a new digital gauge cluster to replace the G70's slightly lackluster physical gauges. This new 12.3-inch display will not only replace the physicals gauges with a screen but also feature state-of-the-art 3D technology.
That's right, the new G70 will display information that looks like it is popping off the screen. Drivers will have the option to switch to standard 2D, while the 3D technology will work without the need for special glasses.
The 3D display will include three themes, “modern”, “space”, and “edge,” as well as five driving modes, Eco, Sport, Comfort, Smart, and Custom. According to Korean Car Blog, along with the 3D display, the G70 will see a few other updates including a revised infotainment system, auto-hold function, an eco-coasting feature, and a Dynamic AWD system with a limited slip differential. All of these changes will appear on the Korean market car but chances are the US car will receive the same upgrades in the next model year.
