First-Ever Genesis G70 Sport Sedan Might Wind Up Being a New Benchmark

Time and time again, we see headlines about a new car ready to take on the competitive sport sedan greats. But for the first time in forever, it seems like Genesis--Hyundai’s luxury brand—has a shot with its all-new 2019 G70. On paper, it has the essentials nailed, including more power than the segment benchmark. On the road, however, it truly proves its mettle.

When Autoblog tried some Korean-market prototypes over the weekend, they were blown away by its impressive scope comfort and performance abilities. With its drive mode settings in Comfort, the G70 behaved like a plush luxury cruiser. Dialed into Sport, and the G70 delivered a snarling growl while putting all 365 horses to the road, while its suspension and steering tightened up to nigh perfection. The cabin is quiet and well-appointed, and a warmer appearance than its top rival. As a further notch in the G70’s belt, rear legroom also eclipses it.

If you find the G70 enticing, we’d be happy to look into its availability for you. Contact our Hyundai dealership in Joplin, MO to let us know, or get more information on another vehicle we have on our lot.
