The Genesis G70 luxury sport sedan has been recognized as the leading Aspirational Luxury Car in the 2019 Ideal Vehicle Awards presented by AutoPacific, the leading automotive research consultancy. AutoPacific’s Ideal Vehicle Awards study asks owners to consider 14 vehicle attributes that they would want to change, and winners are selected based on the lowest desire for change. Over 50,000 vehicle owners contributed to the 2019 decision-making process.
“At Genesis, we design and engineer our luxury vehicles so they deliver, if not exceed, our owners’ expectations, so we are honored to receive this award from AutoPacific that affirms our approach,” said Erwin Raphael, Chief Operating Officer, Genesis Motor America. This award for G70 continues a string of recognition by AutoPacific of Genesis leadership in the luxury automotive space. Last year, Genesis was named Highest Satisfaction Premium Brand, and the G90 flagship sedan was awarded the AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Award for Luxury Car. “The ideal vehicle awards measure how well a vehicle meets the desires of its buyers,” said Dan Hall, Vice President at AutoPacific. “This award shows that Genesis understands their buyers and has developed a car that is ideal for them.”
The 2019 Genesis G70 has been named a “2019 Best New Car” by Autotrader. The award, which was agreed upon unanimously among Autotrader editors, was presented to G70 on the basis of its class-redefining merits. Conveying the stand-out attributes of G70, they noted that its interior is “a highlight that rivals cars costing tens of thousands of dollars more.”“This award is further recognition of the G70’s outstanding positioning among luxury sport sedans,” said Erwin Raphael, Chief Operating Officer, Genesis Motor America.
We are honored for our new G70 to receive this accolade from Autotrader.”.G70 was selected by the editors of Autotrader from a list of over 300 eligible, new vehicles. Led by Editor-in-Chief Brian Moody, the team of editors spent the year testing interior comfort and materials, build quality, available features and ride quality.“Anyone can get a European luxury sedan, in some cities, they’re almost common,” said Autotrader Executive Editor, Brian Moody. “The Genesis G70 takes a different path. A loaded G70 with very impressive performance will set you back about $45,000. A nicely equipped and still luxurious base model is about ten grand less than that. It’s an excellent performance/luxury car for those who don’t want to follow the crowd.”
The Genesis G70 was recognized as a finalist in the 2018 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA®) by The Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA). The organization evaluated the G70 based on its design innovation, user benefits and social responsibility.
“Being a ‘design-first’ brand means that our ultimate goal is to shape fascination and desire with the passion, dedication and talent from our studio team,” said Luc Donckerwolke, Executive Vice President and Head of Genesis Design. “The G70 being named a finalist in the prestigious IDEA competition is validation of those efforts and support that our design has captivated the jurors’ senses with its tensioned, muscular volumes.”
The 2019 Genesis G70 luxury sport sedan resets benchmarks and expectations in its class for the holistic integration of performance, refined luxury and aerodynamic style. The all-new G70 showcases the future direction of the Genesis brand’s design identity by representing athletic elegance in its exterior styling, as the car captures both beauty and tension, like an athlete poised to perform.
