The all-new Genesis G70 has set the bar high in its first year, winning the 2019 MotorTrend Car of the Year award.

The 2019 G70 beat out 19 other cars for the honor based on its excellence in six categories: advancement in design, engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value, and performance of intended function. MotorTrend’s editors tested the compact luxury sport sedan both on the road and on the track before making their decision.

“At Genesis, we are focused on delivering premium vehicles that rise to the top of their respective segments,” said Erwin Raphael, executive director of Genesis Motor America. “We are so proud that G70 was named MotorTrend Car of the Year and can’t wait to hear how happy our customers are with their new purchases.”

MotorTrend’s editors were especially impressed with the G70’s balanced, sporty handling and the exhilarating performance of its available 3.3-liter twin turbo V6 — and they pointed out that it easily matches or even outclasses better-known luxury peers like the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

“The G70 proves you don’t have to compromise; you can have world-class driving dynamics and a smooth, comfortable ride. Power and efficiency can be found in the same luxury vehicle,” said MotorTrend Editor-in-Chief Ed Loh. “Genesis G70 democratizes safety, technology, and luxury, with a price point that will surprise and delight everyone — but its competition.”

This marks the first time that a Genesis vehicle has captured MotorTrend’s prestigious award. Judging from the impression the G70 made, it probably won’t be the last.
