2019 Genesis G70 Wins the MotorTrend Car of the Year Award

 

The 2019 Genesis G70 is an all-new model, and it's arrived on the scene with a splash. This year, the new small luxury car was voted the MotorTrend Car of the Year, a prestigious honor that highlights everything the G70 does right.

At Genesis of West Columbia, we want to show Columbia, Lexington, and Irmo motorists how the Genesis G70 fought its way to prominence and earned this incredible award. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!

Genesis G70: Engineering Excellence

The 2019 G70 does a lot right. According to guest judge Chris Theodore, "The G70 is smooth, quiet, fast, upscale, nimble, good-looking, and a great value."1 The car's standout quality, though, is its performance.

Judges were impressed by the G70's athletic handling, and some version of the word "balance" was found in the notes of seven different judges. Opinions were similarly positive on the optional twin-turbo 3.3L V6 engine. It kicks out a potent 365 horsepower and rockets from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.5 seconds!

It's a sport sedan that manages to be smooth and fun to drive all at once, and its performance certainly captured the judges' attention.

Deluxe Design: The Cabin & Exterior 

The Genesis G70 also earned praise for its attractive, luxurious cabin. The quilted black-and-white seats were a big hit, with their distinctive diamond pattern in the white stitching. They're fashioned from Nappa leather and are incredibly soft to the touch.

The looks of this small luxury car also earned attention, hitting similar notes to some of the most popular German brands. However, its expressive character-noticeable in the crosshatch hexagonal grille and the sporty 19-inch rims-really helps the G70 get noticed in a competitive field.
