2019 Genesis G70 2.0T

$34,900 | USN Performance Score: 9.0/10 | USN Overall Score: 8.9/10

You’ll have to order the Genesis G70 with absolutely no options to keep it under $35,000. However, even the base G70 is a high-performing, well-equipped option in the competitive luxury small car class.

The base G70 is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 252 horsepower. Rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission come standard. A manual is available, but it drives the G70’s price past $35K.

Standard interior features include dual-zone automatic climate control, power front seats, a hands-free automatic trunk lid, and an 8-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A full suite of safety systems is also standard. It includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and blind spot monitoring.

The G70 shares a platform with the Kia Stinger, a critical darling. As such, it has lithe handling and a composed ride. The suspension tuning is a bit more forgiving in the G70, as it is a luxury car. Minor, elegant details add up to a cabin that makes you feel special. Legroom in back isn’t generous, but it’s not meager either. The front seats are nicely cushioned.
