2019 Genesis G70

Genesis G70
   

Power, Drive Quality, and Price

   

The Genesis G70 has a lot going for it, and people are really starting to notice. For one thing, it has been named Motor Trend's 2019 Car of the Year, and it's winning over more and more customers from the elite sport sedans, including the German ones.

   

There are five trim levels of the '19 G70, three with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine (252 hp) and two with a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 (365 hp). The four-cylinder with front-wheel drive is EPA rated for 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway; with all-wheel drive, the inline four gets 21 city/28 highway. There's also a six-speed manual version that achieves 18 city/28 highway. The six-cylinder with front-wheel drive is rated for 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, while the all-wheel drive version gets 18 city/25 highway.

Trims and Standard Equipment

The base 2.0T RWD comes standard with idle stop-and-go, a tire pressure monitoring system with individual indicators, dual exhaust, heated outside mirrors with turn signal indicators, and active safety technology, including lane keeping assist, intelligent cruise control, and forward collision avoidance assist with pedestrian detection. Upgrades are available in the form of three options packages, the Elite, Dynamic, and Sport packages, which add luxuries such as heated and ventilated front seats, wireless device charging, and quilted Nappa leather interior. AWD can be added for $2,000. The 2.0T Manual comes with the same standard features but adds Brembo brakes with performance pads, a sport exhaust system, heated and ventilated front seats, a power driver's seat cushion extender, alloy pedals, and an upgraded audio system with 15 speakers.

The 3.3L Twin-Turbo V6 RWD trim includes an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and rev matching, a hands-free smart trunk, proximity key with push-button start, a 12-way power driver's seat and 8-way power front passenger seat, and a steering wheel and shift knob wrapped in perforated leather. As with the lower trims, AWD can be added for $2,000. There are also three options packages for adding to the list of luxuries. The Elite Package adds a wide sunroof, wireless charging, rain-sensing wipers, and parking distance warning. The Prestige Package tacks on a heads-up display, surround view monitor, Nappa leather seats with luxury quilting, heated rear seats, and a microfiber suede headliner, and the Sport Package adds an electronically controlled suspension, copper headlight bezel accents, and dark exterior accents, including a dark chrome grille.


Performance

The G70 competes directly with the BMW 3 Series and offers something big that the Bavarians no longer do: a manual transmission. The stickshift trim adds dynamics and fun to driving the G70, as well as a slight horsepower edge: it puts out 255 ponies versus the automatic base trim's 252. The handling, suspension, and other aspects of ride quality are right there in the same league as both the German sports sedans and the Japanese competitors - with a considerably lower MSRP. With a choice between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive in either of two turbo-charged engine, there's something for every driver interested in an affordable yet impressively equipped dynamically driving four-door.
