When Hyundai decided to create a luxury brand and give it the Genesis name, it created a personality and admiration that we want to enjoy on the road. Those of us who remember driving the Hyundai Genesis models of the past, know that the Genesis was a car that had the sporty personality coupled with the luxury features desired. While the new Genesis brand showed up with two retooled models from the Hyundai lineup, their newest addition is a luxury sports sedan that makes a huge impression and is the first car completely developed for Genesis.
The G70 Takes the Top Honors
If you’re looking for a dynamic driving compact luxury sedan, the 2019 Genesis G70 is the right choice for you. Not only did this car earn the 2019 AutoGuide.com Car of the Year award, it’s a joyous machine to drive. This car was built from the ground up to be one that could compete against some of the stalwart luxury sports sedans that we’ve seen in the market for several years. As the newest member of this class, taking home the honors from a team that drives a lot of cars is certainly something for the Genesis team to be proud of.
The Second Honor of this Type for Genesis
The Genesis G70 isn’t the first car from this new brand to be award by AutoGuide.com. In 2015, the first model year the Genesis name arrived, the G90 earned the same award and was considered to be one of the most impressive large luxury sedans on the market. The new award for the G70 allows the team to continue to offer us premium vehicles that offer the balance of driving dynamics, luxury features, and quality performance on the road.
The Competition was Strong
Winning this award wasn’t an easy feat and the Genesis G70 wasn’t an incumbent in the category at all. The competition of other new models that were considered for this award includes the new Honda Insight, Nissan Altima, Kia Ro, and Hyundai Veloster. None of these other four were a match for the qualities, characteristics, and performance offered as a complete package by the Genesis G70. The G70 is a new and impressive compact sports luxury sedan that comes at a more affordable price than most of the other models in the class.
Changing the Market for the Better
The new 2019 Genesis G70 is a car that resets the market for the compact luxury sedan and for the driving dynamics you can enjoy when it’s time to get behind the wheel and take a drive. This award is likely only the first of many that will be donned on the Genesis team this year and on this car. When you’re looking for a car that has the engaging driving dynamics you want, the luxury comfort and features that make the drive better, and a style that’s impressive, you need to consider this car as the right one for you to enjoy driving every day.
