The 2019 Genesis G70 takes an aggressive approach to the competitive, entry-level luxury segment. Wrapped in a sleek, elegant design, and with driver-focused performance features to cater to serious drivers, G70 embodies the Genesis ethos of respect while showcasing the future direction of the brand’s identity.
G70 is offered in five trim levels: Advanced, Elite, Prestige, Dynamic and Sport. Every G70 sedan comes standard with class-leading active and passive safety technology, refined interior appointments and driver-focused features.
The list of standard features on the 252-hp, G70 Advanced 2.0T trim is competitive. Rear-wheel drive is standard; the AWD Package, available on all trim levels except 2.0T Sport with the 6-speed manual transmission, adds HTRAC all-wheel drive and a heated steering wheel.
To complete the total ownership experience, every G70 model will come standard with Genesis Connected Services. Advanced telematics include technology like Destination Search powered by Voice, Car Finder, Enhanced Roadside Assistance and Stolen Vehicle Recovery. With a complimentary three-year subscription, Genesis Connected Services further enhances assurance for drivers and passengers, with SOS Emergency & Automatic Collision Notification.
When combining the power of Genesis Connected Services and an Amazon Alexa-enabled device, the Genesis G70 offers remote voice control, performing tasks including Remote Door Lock/Unlock and Remote Start with a specified interior temperature. Genesis Connected Services can also easily be accessed from the controls located on the vehicle’s center stack, the rearview mirror, the internet through the MyGenesisUSA.com website or via the smartphone/smartwatch app exclusive to Genesis owners. Genesis Intelligent Assistant adds another degree of seamless connectivity, sending notifications and recommendations ahead of the drive, delivering point-of-interest navigation directly to G70, and providing a vehicle health report on demand.
The 2019 Genesis G70 is the first near-luxury Genesis sport sedan and outpaces its direct competition in design, quality and craftsmanship—particularly in its class-leading interior. The G70 is the third of six new Genesis models slated to debut by 2021, and the final sedan of the lineup.
“The bar is set higher-than-ever in the luxury segment for vehicle quality and performance, making unique design and outstanding craftsmanship key differentiators in this industry,” said Manfred Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President and Global Head of the Genesis Brand. The all-new G70 showcases the future direction of the Genesis brand’s design identity. Athletic elegance is represented in the exterior styling, as the car captures both beauty and tension, like an athlete poised to perform.
Luc Donckerwolke, Executive Vice President and Head of Genesis Design, said, “At Genesis, we shape fascination and desire with the passion, dedication and talent from our designers. We modulated all parameters from the Genesis DNA to tailor a sports sedan. The G70 is designed to captivate all the senses with tensioned muscular volumes.” The long hood and short front overhang, elegant roofline and assertive multi-spoke alloy wheels combine to form a sleek, dynamic profile, subtly highlighted by dark chrome aero trim.
