We gathered all the relevant information about the 2019 Genesis G70 from the New Jersey Genesis dealer, who were eager to let us have a test drive with it.
The 2019 Genesis G70 is modern in every sense. Powered by a turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 16-valve 2.0-liter inline-4 engine, it can generate a horsepower of 252 or 255 and a torque of 260 lb-ft. The other powertrain combination includes a twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 24-valve 3.3-liter V-6 engine that gives a 365 of horsepower and a torque of 376 lb-ft. You get to choose from two transmission options as well; one is the 6-speed manual, and the other is an 8-speed automatic transmission with manual shifting mode.
The 2019 Genesis G70 is capable enough to pick up a speed to 60 mph from a dead stop in merely 4.3–6.0 secs and you can accelerate the G70 at the top speed of 130–155 mph.
With both these powertrain options the 2019 Genesis G70 could achieve an EPA estimation for its fuel efficiency that counts 20 to 22mpg in a Combined trip 18 to 25 mpg in the city and 25 to 30 mpg in the highway.
Cargo and Passenger Space
The 2019 Genesis G70 is good enough to carry five passengers with ample space in its cabin that measures 92–96 cu ft, with and without the rear seats folded down. The Trunk volume is however about 11 cu ft. which is average in its class.
The Way it Looks
The 2019 G70 is impressive because of the way it looks. It exhibits the elite taste of its designers who didn’t compromise with the materials to support the design it carries. The honeycomb front grille, the slants and cuts that passes through the side, the eye shaped head and tail lights all add to a symmetrical harmony that makes its presence felt when it rolls on the road.
The interior of the 2019 Genesis G70 is equally impressive with its premium quality materials matching the criteria of a luxury car, but the overall looks of the cabin is kept simple and the instrument console is clutter free. The seats both at the front and rear are comfortable with the right driving angle. Genesis made it a point to keep the seat of the driver a little low, but that didn’t compromise the outward visibility, because of its relatively thin pillars and lowered exterior mirrors.
According to the Genesis dealer New Jersey, in the 2019 Genesis G70 an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system is integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Amazon Alexa and Google Home connectivity. For connectivity the G70 has three USB ports. The standard driver aids in 2019 Genesis G70 includes adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind spot monitoring, high beam assist, rear cross traffic alert, and a driver-attention monitor.
The 2019 Genesis G70 is a small luxury sedan that is a driver’s car but that can make every occupant happy with its comfortable and dynamic drives.
