Ultimate Dream Cars: 2019 Genesis G70
2019 is looking to be the year of Genesis. After all, this luxury Korean car brand built itself up quite a bit in recent years. And for 2019, we finally have a luxury sports car that’s ready to throw down with the greats in German engineering. So how does the 2019 Genesis G70 fair at the end of the day? Let’s take a closer look to find out!
When it comes to the G70’s engine, Genesis gives you quite a few options here. The base version is a turbocharged and intercooled 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder. Overall, this one packs between 252-255 hp and 260 lb-ft torque. So it’s certainly providing enough performance to comfortably pass any Sunday driver on the road. By default, you’ll get an 8-speed automatic. But if you’re looking to take more control, you can also opt for a manual transmission.
Now, if you’re looking for more speed, not to worry, as Genesis has you covered with a 3.3-liter twin turbocharged direct injection V6. This version offers you some impressive 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft torque. In fact, this is one of the most powerful engines you’ll find in this price range for a luxury sports coupe. And if that’s not enough, you’ll get a 0-60 in 4.3 seconds. So it’s without a doubt a fast car.
Upon first look, it’s obvious the 2019 Genesis G70 is a suave and handsome car. Just look at the front! That 6-point shield grille blends sleekness with power. Plus, let’s not forget about those air scoops for optimizing the aerodynamics. And if you opt for the panoramic sunroof, you’ll even get a black roof for a cool 2-toned look. Either way you look at it, this design looks like something straight off the cover of a high-end car magazine.
But for the fun to begin, let’s step inside this dream car. Immediately, you’ll notice an overall cool interior. The black seating is standard. Plus, you’ll even get your choice between red or grey stitching. And if you’re really going for sleek designs, why not opt for the heated and cooled Nappa leather seats? And speaking of the seats, don’t forget that the driver’s side is 14-way power adjustable. So you can certainly find plenty of ways to drive comfortably here!
While on the subject of comfort, this cool car even offers a power tilt and telescoping heated steering wheel to ensure you get the most comfortable drive possible. For that matter, this luxury car is built so much around comfort that there’s even a comfort drive mode! Here, the car adjusts its suspension to make your drives less bumpy and far more relaxing. And once you put it into use, you’ll see it works quite well!
Back on the topic of the interior design, you’ll also get a charging pad for an easy means of keeping your phone’s battery topped off. Plus Genesis threw in a few USB ports for good measure! And to finish things off, there’s a little control just above the center console to move the passenger’s seat forward and backward. It might not seem like much, but it performs wonders for those days you need to adjust the passenger’s seat from the comfort of the driver’s seat while driving solo!
The 2019 Genesis G70 offers features and a sleek design that ranks on par with some of the world’s most expensive cars. Yet, you can buy one for as low as $35,000! That’s an incredible price given everything that’s offered here!
For years, brands like Mercedes Benz and BMW dominated the luxury sport market with cars like the SL and 8 series. But now, Genesis is here to prove that Korean engineering has something to offer as well. And quite frankly, if Genesis continues down this path, there’s no doubt it’ll dominate the automotive world within a few years. Simply put, the 2019 Genesis G70 is a stellar car. It’s really hard to find something not to like about a fast car that packs plenty of features focused on keeping you safe and comfortable! So now, all we can ask is what’s next from Genesis?
