The newest addition to the Genesis lineup has arrived in the form of the G70. The compact luxury sedan goes on sale in the U.S. next spring and will immediately join a competitive segment headlined by the BMW 3 series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C class. The G70 will be available in rear- or all-wheel drive and will come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a 3.3-liter turbo V-6 in the U.S. Here's some initial reaction from the automotive press on the G70.
"Right off the bat I'll say this: it looks sharp. More so than I expected. Granted, it's a bit indistinctive -- the total package reminds me of the Infiniti Q50 and the Alfa Romeo Giulia, two cars it'll no doubt compete against -- but you can't deny it's a handsome, aggressive, elegant design. They did good here. ...
"On the inside, it's definitely aimed at BMW -- check that control knob and screen combo. I'll wait to judge it in person, but it looks elegant, and at least something of a step up from nicer Hyundais I've driven."
