2019 Genesis G70 Named Good Design Award Winners
In December it was announced that the 2019 Genesis G70 won 2018 GOOD DESIGN® awards. Genesis joins leading transportation, electronic, consumer and lifestyle product brands in receiving the annual awards from The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. The Genesis G80 Sport and GV80 Concept won awards in last year’s judging.
The 2019 G70 is the third of six new Genesis models slated to debut by 2021, and the final sedan of the lineup. As the first Genesis model in the highly competitive entry-level luxury segment, G70 will outperform legacy luxury sport sedans with driver-focused performance. G70 resets benchmarks and expectations among luxury sport sedans, with holistic integration of performance, body strength, refined luxury and aerodynamic design.
The G70’s base engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four making 252 horsepower, and 365-hp twin-turbo 3.3-liter V-6 is optional. All-wheel drive is available with both engines, and an eight-speed automatic transmission is standard across the board. The 2.0T can be had with a six-speed manual on the driver-focused Sport trim, though, which also gets desirable performance options as standard.
Designed to make an instant and undeniable statement, the G70’s exceptionally low center of gravity creates a wide, dramatic stance. The sleek profile follows through, creating a powerful visual momentum drawing your eye from the aggressive crosshatched grille to the available sporty dual exhaust tips.
True luxury is about the complete experience. Designed around real needs and wants, respecting how you actually live. This is the Genesis Experience, a thoughtfully crafted suite of owner benefits.
