New for 2019

The 2019 Genesis G70 is the latest addition to the automaker's sedan lineup and it's aimed directly at the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2019 Genesis G70 is a compact luxury sedan that slots below the midsize G80 and will become Genesis' new entry-level model. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional.

Base G70s should come with a generous amount of standard features including Bluetooth, leather upholstery, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, a rear-view camera, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, heated front seats, and dual-zone climate control.

Higher trims could add on a 360-degree camera system, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, an 8.0-inch display in the center of the instrument cluster, an adaptive suspension, a limited-slip differential on rear-drive models, Nappa leather upholstery, full LED headlights, a power-operated trunk, and a large sunroof.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2019 Genesis G70 comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbo-four rated at 255 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. A 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 365 hp and 376 lb-ft is optional. An eight-speed automatic transmission will be offered on the four-cylinder, and Genesis may offer a six-speed manual, too. Models with the twin-turbo V-6 come only with the eight-speed automatic. EPA fuel economy ratings haven't been released yet.

Safety

The NHTSA and IIHS haven't crash-tested the 2019 Genesis G70. Available active driver assistance features include lane keeping assist blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams.

Utility

Genesis hasn't released trunk dimensions but considering its compact footprint, the G70's cargo capacity should be on the smaller end of the spectrum. Thankfully, it does come with 60/40 split-folding rear seats.

What We Think

In a 2019 First Drive, we were impressed with the G70's balance, offering sporty handling and a reasonably comfortable ride. However, in its most aggressive setting, the adaptive suspension is rough on less-than-perfect roads, and the steering could use more feel and feedback. The standard summer performance tires on the V-6-powered models can also get noisy. Models with the optional twin-turbo V-6 offer generous power and impressive straight-line speed.

The interior is well-appointed but the rear seats are cramped and best suited for two instead of three passengers. Seating up front, on the other hand, is comfortable with plenty of support for the driver and front passenger. Genesis' infotainment system is easy to use.

Cool Fact

The Genesis G70 shares its platform with the Kia Stinger but features a wheelbase that's 2.8 inches shorter than its hatchback cousin.
