2019 Genesis G70 is the Korean answer for the BMW 3 Series
Genesis has never been embarrassed by its aspirations to expand its ranks, but nothing has happened since the creation of its brand and its first two cars, the G80 and G90. But now, there is a new one, and it will wade through a segment with some old competition.
Genesis 2019 Genesis G70 is a compact luxury sedan intended to compete with three long-established German compact – Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
Genesis calls it a “settlement” of its lineup of sedans, so do not expect anything smaller to come out – from now on, the new Genesis model is likely to be an SUV. Genesis expects to uncover three additional models over the next four years, including some “alternative powertrains,” which may indicate a certain degree of electrification.
Based on the image, Genesis managed to adjust the G80 style with a smaller shape. The grille should be familiar to anyone who sees the G80, although the rest of the bumper is more carved and looks angry than any other Genesis model. In hindsight, I’m getting a bit of the last-generation C-Class on the taillights, but this is great with lots of striking LED elements to attract buyers.
2019 Genesis G70 Interior
Inside, things are very traditional Genesis. There are different materials in every layer of the dash, though the G70 bucks tradition uses one of the “floating” screen designs that love-it-or-hates-love. There are many physical buttons to manipulate climate control and infotainment, and chairs (at least with diamond-stitched clothing) look very luxurious.
The 8.0 inch touchscreen infotainment system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The music geeks will probably choose the 15-speaker Lexicon sound system.

When launched in South Korea this year, the G70 will come with one of three engines – 2.0 liter gas I4 with 248 horsepower, 2.2 liter I4 diesel with 199 horsepower and a 3.3 liter turbocharged V6 with 365 horsepower.
The latter will be used in the G70 Sport trim, which is intended for direct performance, with a 0-60 time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of about 168 mph. It has a standard variable-ratio ratio that can change the wheel based on driver preferences, as well as adaptive suspension systems.
Since it will not be a new car in 2017 without some kind of security system, the Genesis G70 packs a huge number of them. Genesis Active Safety Control suites include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control. His ship will also be lifted to absorb the shock of contacting pedestrians, in the hope of limiting the pain that affects the person’s path.
While the Genesis G70 goes on sale this month in South Korea, we will not know more specific North American information about the car until early 2018.
