Overview of the Genesis G70

Learn about the Genesis G70

Summary

The Genesis G70 gets top marks across the board when it comes to power, design and safety. First released to North American markets in 2019, the Genesis G70's luxurious interior and a healthy list of standard features justify its price tag.

Drivers have options when it comes to engine power, and no matter what trim or year you choose, you're bound to be impressed by the car's perfect handling and beastly acceleration. There are only a few drawbacks to this luxury vehicle, but considering all the Genesis G70 has to offer, it's well worth a test drive.

Safety

Even the basic trim of the 2019 Genesis G70 has a lot to offer in this category. The safety package automatically includes:

  • Lane-keeping assist – to help drivers stay in their lane
  • Lane-departure warning – which alerts drivers when they're veering
  • Cross-traffic alert – to warn drivers when other cars are approaching their path
  • Blindspot monitoring – alerting drivers of vehicles approaching from the side 

Front and backseat side and head airbags keep all passengers secure and all models are equipped with child safety locks.

Interior

The Genesis G70 lives up to its luxury status when it comes to interior finishes. To start off, all models come with a backup camera and leather-wrapped steering wheel. If you spend a little more on a higher trim, then you can enjoy heated/cooled seats and leather seating. Hyundai worked hard on the finer details, delivering premium cabin materials like quilted Nappa leather seats (on the Sports package) and a heated steering wheel. The dashboard, controls and doors are trimmed with fine metals.

Technology

The Hyundai Genesis G70 comes with a healthy list of standard technology features, even for entry-level models. Starting from its 2019 release, the sedan comes equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as optional heads up display and rear parking aid. The higher trim offers a premium sound system and satellite radio. Other technical goodies include:

  • Smart device integration
  • Satellite radio
  • Hands-free communication and optional navigation system

Despite the infotainment system's intuitive layout, its display and graphics aren't as refined as other luxury models. Still, drivers won't be disappointed in the overall tech offerings of this vehicle.

Space

Front-row passengers enjoy plush seating and ample legroom in the Genesis G70, but extra passengers may feel a little cramped in the backseat, as it doesn't offer a ton of legroom as some of the other models in its class. Pack light for long road trips, as the trunk space in the Genesis G70 is on the smaller side. With lumbar support and optional power seating, drivers and front-row passengers of all sizes can get comfy in this luxury sports sedan.

Comfort

No matter what year or trim, the Genesis G70 is sure to impress with its power, agility and handling. Turning sharp corners and navigating slippery roads is a breeze, whether you're riding on the eight-speed automatic turbocharged engine or the twin-turbo V6 beast. Some drivers may experience some rolling with hard turns, but otherwise, the ride is quiet and comfortable. Rear-wheel drive (RWD) is standard across all trims, but all-wheel drive AWD is also available to make your trips even smoother.
