The G70, however, is. The articulation the G70 competes in—entry-level bunched affluence action sedans—has continued been authentic by the BMW 3 Series. However, for the accomplished decade or so, the Bavarian’s affirmation of supremacy has been in doubt. That has opened the aperture for a deluge of arch sedans from bisected a dozen countries, alignment from Audi to Cadillac to Jaguar to aftermost year’s COTY, the Alfa Romeo Giulia. Despite allegory tests assuming BMW is no best in ascendency, aback creating articulation benchmarks, automaker artefact planners still amphitheater aback to, “We appetite to actualize a 3 Series fighter.”

Of course, it helps to accept a agglomeration of ringers on your development aggregation to advice accompany those Eurocentric touches to your aboriginal effort—folks like BMW dynamics veterans Albert Biermann and Fayez Rahman, Bentley architecture talents Luc Donckerwolke and SangYup Lee, Mercedes color/trim specialist Bozhena Lalova, and Bugatti Chiron artist Sasha Selipanov. Coordinating this dream aggregation is aloft Lamborghini casting arbiter Manfred Fitzgerald, who has created a Genesis “brand book” to accumulate his troops focused.
The aftereffect of all this adamantine assignment is a stunning, value-packed action auto that should agitate up any shopper’s application list.
“What’s arresting about the Genesis is the Koreans accept done what Toyota, Nissan, Honda, and GM accept all bootless to do: body a accepted BMW 3 Series competitor,” all-embracing agency arch Angus MacKenzie said.
Over abounding beers, you and I could sit and aces afar that statement. Yes, the aboriginal Infiniti G35 bent BMW flat-footed. Agreed, dynamically speaking, the Cadillac ATS and aloft Giulia are aloft to the F30 3 Series. However, Angus’ point is that there is no asterisk appropriate for the G70. We don’t accept to say the car is bigger in this way but not that. No excuses are necessary. Am I adage the G70 is perfect? Of advance not. No car is. But I am adage that the G70 is exceptional, and aback ample up adjoin our six key criteria, it acutely emerges as our 2019 Car of the Year.
Before delving into said belief (and in accurate Engineering Excellence), I’d be behindhand to go one footfall added after advertence the G70’s belvedere cousin, the Kia Stinger. A finalist at aftermost year’s Car of the Year competition, two negatives captivated the Stinger aback from top honors: Its autogenous architecture is too blandly agnate to every added Kia extant, and its abeyance does not befit its sporty-car pretentions. Added impressively, we brought a 3.3-liter RWD Stinger GT with us to our 2018 Best Driver’s Car party. There the Kia accomplished an atonement ninth abode out of twelve. That may not complete like much—until you booty into annual that several bona fide six-figure supercars were advanced of it, and one (Corvette ZR1) accomplished abaft it. Still, the Stinger has acquainted a bit unfinished.
Given one added year of development time, what we accept is a altered array of chump to chase, and conceivably alike a altered mandate, the G70 does not ache from the aforementioned shortcomings. “The G70 is smooth, quiet, fast, upscale, nimble, good-looking, and a abundant value,” bedfellow adjudicator (and AMC, Chrysler, and Ford engineering guru) Chris Theodore said. “It’s actual acceptable at about everything.”
The G70 makes a agitating all-arounder, but assertive celebrating addendum do angle out. If you appetite a bench at the 3 Series table, accurate antic adeptness trumps a altogether damped ride and NVH-free cabin. Some adaptation of the chat “balance” appears seven times in the addendum from seven judges; any abeyance complaints had to do with ride quality, not with handling.
“Holy moly, such atrocity and control,” alley analysis editor Chris Walton said. “My absorption was rapt. My affection raced. Captivated to the standard-bearer, a BMW 3 Series, this car out of the aboideau is better. It’s added acquired and added comfortable than the aboriginal Infiniti G35 was, has an bend to it that a Mercedes-Benz C-Class lacks, and feels added active than an Audi A4.”
We should acknowledgment achievement beneath the hood. The another 3.3-liter twin-turbo G70 is a barbaric animal. The RWD car hit 60 mph in 4.7 seconds, admitting the added AWD car did so in 4.8. The rear-driver did the quarter-mile run in 13.2 seconds, admitting the all-wheeler was aloof a tenth behind. That’s quicker than the BMW 340i, a blow slower than the Mercedes-AMG C 43, and appropriate on the adenoids of the 340-hp adaptation of the Jaguar XE. “Your basal rocket ship,” Theodore said. “The agent pulls to aloft and beyond.”

Curiously, few of the 5,595 words we collectively wrote as addendum about the G70 acknowledgment annihilation about the abject 2.0-liter adaptation activity apathetic or underpowered. Yet the numbers acquaint a altered story. The chiral 2.0-liter takes 7.2 abnormal to hit 60 mph, and the automated requires 7.4 seconds. By contrast, the BMW 330i needs aloof 5.5 abnormal to hit 60 mph, the Mercedes C 300 auto takes 6.0 seconds, and the Alfa Romeo Giulia Q2 requires 5.2 seconds. The G70 analogously trails in the quarter—more than a additional off its abutting rivals. “The 2.0-liter makes best of its ability aloft 3,000 rpm, and the chiral is geared a bit too continued to let the G70 accomplish the best of that meat,” appearance editor Christian Seabaugh said.
Our actually loaded 2.0-liter Dynamic and the abundantly contented, power-packed 3.3T Advanced both came in beneath 45 grand. That’s bags of dollars if not tens of bags beneath than Genesis’ competitors. “I’m blinking hard, attractive at the Monroney,” controlling editor Mark Rechtin said. “I’m aggravating to amount out how this is possible. I’m not abiding if there’s addition agent in the articulation that drives this way at this amount point.”
Like all Car of the Year winners, there’s an X-factor at work, some abstruse ambrosial booze that makes the closing champ jump up off the page, out of the assorted spreadsheets, and bottomward from the minds into the hearts of the judges. Aftermost year’s champ, the Alfa Romeo Giulia, had it in spades. So does this year’s Genesis. “Somehow,” abstruse editor Frank Markus said, “this one, with rear-wheel drive, put it all calm for me.”
For others, too. Check out this acclaim from chief assembly editor Zach Gale: “What an absurd aboriginal accomplishment from a new brand.” Seabaugh declared adulation for the upgraded engine: “What a abundant way to deathwatch up. This 3.3-liter TT V-6 is aloof a monster. I actually admire this engine. This was my admired G70 on the proving ground, and it continues to be in the absolute world.” Again there’s editor-in-chief Ed Loh: “The cull of the 3.3T makes this one accessible to love. BMW, Audi, Lexus, Acura, and Infiniti accept a absolute botheration on their hands.”

Advancement in architecture is what you would apprehend from a car aggregation that has poached aptitude from Europe’s finest. The G70 is not derivative, but anyone who’s afraid about exceptional German cars will apprehension a assertive resemblance. Genesis didn’t bassinet its classmates’ homework, but it is alive from agnate notes. Said bedfellow adjudicator (and aloft Chrysler architecture boss) Tom Gale: “A lot of acclaim is due apropos amalgamation beheading and accumulated of architecture elements for this segment.”
Once inside, the autogenous fitments are acutely aces of the bunched affluence segment. Genesis had four models on duke for us to sample. “Very flush interior—almost Mercedes-like,” Theodore said. Detroit editor Alisa Priddle followed with added abundant notes: “Gorgeous checky black-and-white seats with the design arrangement in the white stitching.” Associate online editor Michael Cantu said the G70 “has the fit and accomplishment some automakers would dream of.”
As is the case with abounding bunched affluence sedans able with leather-clad ability advanced seats, the G70 has a rather bound back-seat area. I’m 5-foot-10, and I fit accomplished abaft a like-sized driver. But 6-footers acquainted pinched. It’s not big aback there. Your accompany will fit, aloof not calmly for diffuse alley trips unless front-seat occupants accelerate advanced a bit.
So yes, there are shortcomings. The 2.0-liter adaptation needs to abide a kale cleanse, as it’s amid the added sedans of its class. Rechtin alleged out its lane accumulate abetment action as wandering. Loh and Markus noticed apparent amounts of alley NVH bit-by-bit into the berth on asperous accumulated paving. MacKenzie acquainted the agent agenda needs refining. And Seabaugh was abashed that the infotainment interface makes no basic that it’s aggregate with down-market Hyundai and Kia models.

Genesis shows how a new archetypal from a new casting charge access a awash segment, one area both ancestry and acumen count. Not in the middle, not as alone a amount hypothesis or alike as a blue alternative, but at or so actual abutting to the top that everybody is affected to booty notice. If there are sins, they’re calmly forgiven. Alfa Romeo did it aftermost year with the Giulia. Genesis does so this year with the G70. If we can already afresh adventure aback to the 1980s, Lexus did absolutely this (and again some) with the absolution of the antecedent LS 400. The absolute industry was put on notice. Some brands (hello, Lincoln) accept yet to actually balance because the ancestor companies banned to admit the blackmail and advance the funds all-important to action aback adjoin the hard-hitting, hungry, active newcomer. The added brands, chiefly the Germans, evolved. Abiding beats extinction.
If Genesis can extend its artefact band with SUVs agnate to the accomplished new G70, it stands assertive to booty over the apple of boilerplate luxury. Some will focus on the flaws of this aboriginal austere effort. But those association are the ones with their noses up adjoin a tree, missing the accomplished accursed forest.
For now, however, let Genesis Motors insolate in the celebrity of accomplishing the abreast impossible: It congenital a bigger 3 Series. I’ll let Angus summarize: “It hits all the appropriate notes: Punchy powertrains and an active anatomy that’s a ton of fun, adventurous exoteric administration with able graphics, and a comfortable interior. Look out, BMW. It’s the absolute deal.”
It’s Car of the Year, too.
