The highly-anticipated 2019 Genesis G70 has made a splash in the competitive sport sedan segment. Genesis’ newest entry begins with a starting price of $35,895 (all prices include the $995 destination charge). The G70 features a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6, as well as two limited production special editions for the cherry on top.

Choosing Your Genesis G70
If you’re a fan of multiple options to choose from, the 2019 Genesis G70 is right up your alley. There are two main trim levels that depend on engine choice, while there are several sub-trims to choose from within each of those. The 2.0T trims are powered by the 2.0-liter turbo-four engine that makes 252 horsepower. The 3.3T trims house the 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 that produces 365 hp.
A Dynamic Special Edition and Design Special Edition feature the 3.3T powerplant with only 400 of each being produced for 2019. Consumers can also opt for a standard rear-wheel drive, or upgrade to all-wheel drive ($2,000 extra). An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard fare with each engine, though a six-speed manual is offered on the 2.0T.
The 2019 Genesis G70 is an intriguing vehicle that should be test driven and seen in person to determine if it’s a good fit for you. With so many trim levels, finding one that fits your needs and budget should be rather simple. One item to carefully consider is your location. Anyone living in cold weather climates should opt for AWD and consult with Genesis dealerships about a good all-season tire, as the standard Michelin summer tires are great for dry roads, but not so great for wet and icy conditions.
