Autotrader editors unanimously named and selected the 2019 Genesis G70 from a list of over 300 eligible new vehicles as 2019 Best New Car, noting that its interior is “a highlight that rivals cars costing tens of thousands of dollars more.”
“This award is further recognition of the G70's outstanding positioning among luxury sport sedans,” said Erwin Raphael, chief operating officer of Genesis Motor America. “We are honored for our new G70 to receive this accolade from Autotrader.”
“Anyone can get a European luxury sedan, in some cities, they're almost common,” said Autotrader executive editor Brian Moody. “The Genesis G70 takes a different path. A loaded G70 with very impressive performance will set you back about $45,000. A nicely equipped and still luxurious base model is about ten grand less than that. It's an excellent performance/luxury car for those who don't want to follow the crowd.”
G70 was also named the 2019 North American Car of the Year.
