Hello!
I wanted to see if anyone had made the switch from a 2015-2016 genesis to the G70.

I currently have a 2015 genesis 5.0 ultimate, which is in great shape with about 50k miles. I really dig the g70 styling, the performance, and overall size but I guess I'm wanting to know if the switch is truely an upgrade or kind of moot.

Thanks ahead of time

went from a 2016 3.8 ultimate to g70. If you do some searching here you will see many have done the same. They are totally different cars. This caught me off guard as I went looking at g70 as my lease was coming due. In short. If you are into a big cushy comfy ride keep your current unit. If you want something rougher and sportier and more of a head turner check out the g70. 3.3T really runs!!!

Thanks for the replies. I'll try to test drive one today if I get a chance. I like the sportiness of the g70, just worried I'll miss out on the luxurious feel of the g80. I wish the g70 drivers area was a bit more like the g80 or even the new pallisade with the digital dash, depressed infotainment center, etc.

Sounds like your solution is a G80 3.3t Sport

Well. After test driving a g70 3.3t with the wife we actually really loved it. Overall it has all the same or more features compared to our 5.0 ultimate but with a smaller form factor and alot more sportiness. And with.. a much better... sound system.

So we went ahead and traded in and are now proud g70 owners. We really didnt need a backseat anyway ;).
