I know , half the 0 to 60 times these reviewers are quoting are the 0 to 100km times, also car and driver F#$&ed up their times as they got a 4.7 with the G70 but got 4.4 with the stinger...... i dont think so TimBeen a while...a new one...
The 2019 Genesis G70 is taking the fight right to Germany’s doorstep
Of course...they f’d up the 0-60 time...do these folks not read or investigate?!?!
Made sense until I read the last paragraph:
You’re right about that. Alex (on Autos) got 4.6 w/o the lauch and said he estimates 114/115 mph for 1/4 mile while R&T said 106 mph. Some good comments a couple of weeks ago suggested the testing conditions were bad due to being tested in the California desert in the summer with the sticky tires.
^ C&D strongly suspected their test mule came up lame. their article says as much and they are waiting another vehicle to test to confirm times...or perhaps the Stinger they had was stronger than spec. once we see multiple verified and instrumented testing data come in we'll have a much better sense of where the G70 ranks.
I think it makes sense as the 8 speed is a traditional automatic. It’s no different than doing a break stand before launching like you would do on an old car.After having tried launch control a few times on a demo and doing it in my car i really really feel there is better takeoff and acceleration by just mashing the gas, the weird thing was my Wife commented before i even mentioned it
Yes, i did it correctly lol, its actually quite easy on the G70
Fantastic in comfort mode. More than enough power for regular traffic, pretty smooth and quiet. Still lots available if you need it, and minimal turbo lag. Seats are super comfy and very adjustable.0 to 60 times notwithstanding, how is the car to drive in normal traffic? Any throttle tip-in delay? Is the turbo lag manageable? I wish reviewers focused on this as much as drag race times.
Almost no lag, i found that the 340i and cla45 had way more, c43 was on par, i am very surprised with quick response.0 to 60 times notwithstanding, how is the car to drive in normal traffic?

You probably know more than I, i have only driven the c43 for about 30 mins during a test drive, boy i do love that AMG exhaust, cant wait to see what comes out for the G70I personally feel the C43 AMG stays in the boost a little more than the G70 - it truly feels like it has zero lag while the G70 has a hint of lag lower in the tack, before hitting harder than the Benz in the top of the range. I don't see this as a negative. A whiff of turbo lag is fun to me.
Good shit. I love my 2018 Audi S5, but boy is there a lot of throttle lag in normal D mode. S mode is great of course.Almost no lag, i found that the 340i and cla45 had way more, c43 was on par, i am very surprised with quick response.
Weird thing is if i stop accelerating ( let off the gas ) just before the speed limit the car will continue to accelerate approx 10km/h more. I need to break after acceleration
