5 reasons to buy the 2019 Genesis G70

1. Expressive design

The 2019 G70 wears an elegant yet athletic design with a long hood and short overhangs that complement the sedan's dynamic roofline and high beltline. As your G70 prowls through the streets, you'll attract attention from on-lookers who are curious about its sleek profile and sculpted curves. A vast signature Genesis Crest Grille leads the way on all 2019 models with distinctive linear LED daytime-running lights flanking either side. For a moodier appearance, you can opt for the 2019 G70 Sport trim, which boasts shadowy chrome bezels and copper accents, along with a dark chrome-finished grille with 19-inch gunmetal alloy wheels.

2. Luxe interior

Nappa leather upholstery with luxurious quilting covers the seating surfaces in 2.0T Prestige, 3.3T Prestige, and 3.3T Design trims, while the door panels include quilted inserts for a touch of comfort where you least expect it. Genuine brushed aluminum surfaces and stainless-steel speaker grilles accent the soft-touch surfaces throughout the cabin. 2019 2.0T Elite, 2.0T Sport M/T, and 3.3T Advanced trims also come standard with a Lexicon® 15-speaker audio system with Quantum Logic® Surround & Clari-Fi Music Restoration, which fills the G70 sedan with crisp, vibrant sound.

Craving pure, unbridled on-road fun? The 2019 G70 offers two powertrain configurations to quench your thirst for performance. The first is a 252-horsepower 2.0L turbocharged inline four-cylinder with 260 lb.-ft. of torque or you can opt for a 365-horsepower 3.3L twin-turbocharged V6 with 376 lb.-ft. of twist. The four-cylinder and V6 engines come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission but if you want to engage with each rev, the 2019 2.0T Sport M/T trim boasts a six-speed manual transmission that pays homage to the segment's sporting roots. All automatic 2019 G70 models also come standard with a launch control system for greater acceleration right off the line.

4. Dynamic handling

The 2019 G70's low center of gravity sets the stage for its dynamic handling. All 2019 models ride on a MacPherson multi-link front suspension and a multi-link rear suspension, delivering optimal wheel control and balanced comfort. 2019 G70 2.0T and 3.3T models with the Dynamic package also benefit from a mechanical limited-slip differential that improves traction by balancing torque distribution across the rear axle when wheelspin occurs. For even more agility, 2019 G70 3.3T models use variable gear ratio steering for nimbler directional responses, while 2019 3.3T Sport models boast an electronically controlled suspension allowing you to further customize the sedan's handling.

5. Connected technologies

Want to feel in sync with your car? The G70's technologies have the intelligent functionality you need. Every 2019 model features Genesis Connected Services, which is your digital concierge when you are inside or away from the vehicle. Using the Genesis Connected Services app on your smartphone, you can remotely lock or unlock the 2019 G70, start the engine and adjust the climate controls, or pin the car's exact location in a crowded parking garage. Other standard features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities on all 2019 trims while the 2.0T Prestige trim boasts wireless device charging and a Heads-up Display. This feature projects speed, navigation, and other alerts onto the windshield designed for you to stay focused during your drive.
