The exterior is highlighted by a sleek front fascia with a massive grille flanked by a couple of sporty-looking air intakes. Out back, the G50 looks more like a minivan than an MPV, with a huge tailgate and an equally large rear windshield. Two alloy-wheel sizes are available: 16 or 17 inches.
Inside, you get a roomy cabin with eight seats, as mentioned. The base variant gets fabric seats, an eight-inch touchscreen display with a four-speaker setup, and a manual air-conditioning system. The two higher trim levels get leather seats, a 12.3-inch infotainment system with six speakers, and automatic A/C controls.
The top-spec G50 also gets a few exclusive features, including a wireless smartphone charger, a panoramic sunroof, a power tailgate, power-adjustable front seats, a seatback table, automatic LED headlamps, and auto-folding side mirrors.
Meanwhile, standard features across the range include cruise control, a keyless entry system with push-start ignition, a tire-pressure monitoring system, and rear parking sensors with a reversing camera. The two higher variants also get additional front parking sensors and a 360-degree view monitor.
Only one engine is available with the new G50: A 1.5-liter in-line-four turbopetrol that generates 167hp at 5,500rpm and 250Nm of torque at 1,700 to 4,300rpm, and is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Exterior color options are Roland Purple, Polar Ash, Deep Golden, Warm White, Warm Argent, Metal Black, and Water Blue—availability depends on the variant.
