Today, Genesis Motor America launched “The Art of the Stunt” featuring the 2019 Genesis G70: a three-part video series that demonstrates vehicle agility in a thrilling setting. In each video short, a stunt driver uses a G70 luxury sport sedan to recreate a classic scene of evasive driving from famous motion pictures. Working with Donut Media, award-winning film industry veterans and professional drivers, Genesis produced both the stunts and behind-the-scenes footage to engage performance enthusiasts and movie aficionados alike.
As the first Genesis model in the highly competitive entry luxury segment, G70 outperforms legacy luxury sport sedans with driver-focused performance. G70, which was named the 2019 North American Car of the Year, as well as receiving more than a dozen other prominent awards in recent months, resets benchmarks and expectations among luxury sport sedans, with holistic integration of performance, body strength, refined luxury and aerodynamic design. Pricing starts at $34,900.
The 2019 Genesis G70 received awards in the last two weeks from two leading media associations, in recognition of its outstanding overall performance. The Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA), based in Miami, Fla., bestowed G70 with its Best Panoramic Sunroof Sedan award at its annual Topless in Miami drive event, while the New England Motor Press Association (NEMPA) named G70 its Best Winter Sedan at the NEMPA MIT Technology Conference held in Boston, Mass.
“These two awards represent affirmation from respected media professionals that our engineers succeeded in making the Genesis G70 luxury sport sedan one of the most highly capable all-season sedans.” said Erwin Raphael, Chief Operating Officer, Genesis Motor America.
Each year, both NEMPA and SAMA honor new vehicles that stand out in their respective classes at an annual media association gathering.

Last night, MotorTrend named the 2019 Genesis G70 the recipient of its 2019 Car of the Year award at the annual MotorTrend Awards ceremony held in conjunction with the Los Angeles Auto Show. It marks the first time that a Genesis has taken the coveted and respected honor. “At Genesis, we are focused on delivering premium vehicles that rise to the top of their respective segments,” said Erwin Raphael, executive director, Genesis Motor America. “We are so proud that G70 was named MotorTrend Car of the Year and can’t wait to hear how happy our customers are with their new purchases.”
G70 competed against 19 other Car of the Year award contenders in MotorTrend’s evaluation of the most competent, desirable, and capable vehicles to debut for the 2019 model year. As part of testing, MotorTrend editors put eligible vehicles through their paces on both the street and on the test track to determine a verdict. “The G70 proves you don’t have to compromise; you can have world-class driving dynamics and a smooth, comfortable ride. Power and efficiency can be found in the same luxury vehicle,” said Ed Loh, MotorTrend’s editor-in-chief. “Genesis G70 democratizes safety, technology, and luxury, with a price point that will surprise and delight everyone – but its competition.”
