An exciting and elegant sports sedan

Sleek and nimble, the 2021 Genesis G70 is a sporty sedan that's dressed to impress. Its intricately-designed grille is the first thing you'll notice, followed by a well-crafted body that appears to be constantly in motion. Powered by two engine options—a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder or twin-turbo 3.3L V6—the G70 is ready to take you as far as you want to go. You'll appreciate the little touches in this sedan like a handy shelf in the front of the console for your phone and ample trunk space for five suitcases to accompany you and four passengers on a weekend trip.

Genesis has made a name for itself as a luxury brand, and the 2021 G70 delivers with finely-crafted leatherette or available quilted leather seats, stainless steel, and brushed aluminum trim. The seating and interior are offered in a choice of four elegant colors, and the driver and passenger can adjust their power seats in a multitude of ways. Combined with the quality audio experience, your cabin becomes an inner sanctum that makes the drive incredibly relaxing

3. Eight vibrant exterior colors

Whether you like your vehicle swathed in a smooth neutral coat or an eye-catching shade, the 2021 Genesis G70 has a paint option for you. You might choose shiny Uyuni White, or perhaps one of three gray hues (Savile Silver, Siberian Ice, and Himalayan Gray). If you prefer an azure tint, there are two: Mallorca Blue and Adriatic Blue. Havana Red and Forest Green are deep colors that show off the body lines, and the stealthy Vik Black rounds out the list

4. Generous driver-assist features

Using radar and multiple cameras, the 2021 Genesis G70 features as standard forward collision-avoidance assist, blind-spot collision warning, and lane-keeping assist to monitor all sides of your vehicle. The also-standard rearview camera includes guidelines to help you back out confidently. And a rear occupant alert, which comes with every 2021 G70, helps you to ensure everything and everyone is out of the car when you park.

5. Two sporty engines

If you crave the zippy feeling of a powerful engine, the 2021 Genesis G70 has two choices. On the 2.0T trims, you'll get a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder powertrain with an eight-speed automatic. Or if you're a fan of manual transmissions, you might opt for the six-speed manual transmission, which makes 255 hp. The largest engine roars under the hood of the 3.0T variant with a turbocharged 365-hp 3.3L V6 with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
