The G70’s platform is light but rigid, since it has more curves than a conventional platform. The components and materials used in the G70 also reflect an uncompromising focus on lightness. As a result, the G70 weighs a mere 730kg (more than 100kg less than the Suzuki Alto*).
Note: * MT model.
2. Advanced aerodynamics
The shape of the G70 means excellent aerodynamics and greater interior comfort. A relatively upright windscreen ensures good forward visibility while directing air smoothly over the top and sides of the body. Other drag-reducing details include rear combination lamps which ensure a smooth airflow toward the rear and C-pillar garnishes which steer and adjust the airflow. The G70’s drag coefficient is more than 10% lower than that of a Suzuki A-segment production model.
The environmental benefits of the G70’s lightness and low running resistance are complemented by a highly efficient 800cm3 turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine with CVT.
4. Other fuel-saving technologies
An Engine Auto Stop Start system with regenerative braking saves fuel effectively by storing and reusing the G70’s kinetic energy during deceleration.
The G70 is not just another car with environmental features: it also has a distinctive character deriving from its "emotional" styling. The design language focuses on “premium casual”, which can be interpreted as mature elegance and fine quality. The use of transparent materials and relatively bright colours creates an airy impression and succeeds in expressing the quality of a compact car with less of an environmental burden.
A stylish, futuristic cabin incorporates a unique floating interface which provides information on navigation, audio and climate control. A transparent touch-panel display makes the information easy to read and allows easy inputs. The G70 uses the floating interface to recommend destinations and music in line with the driver’s preferences – which it infers from journey data and search records. It also uses the floating interface to show friends driving nearby on a map and enables the driver to share route information with them. Driving can be much more enjoyable with this infotainment system prompted by the G70.
Green bodywork underscores the G70’s environmental credentials. The paintwork has a deep, refined look which emphasises the car’s highly contoured shape. A white finish on the roof creates a fashionable two-tone look which suits the lightweight model.
