FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., February 7, 2019 – Today, the multiple award-winning 2019 Genesis G70 received another significant award from the highly-regarded, third-party automotive experts at Cars.com. They named the all-new 2019 Genesis G70 luxury sport sedan the “Best of 2019”.
“G70 was designed and engineered to delight serious drivers and exceed the expectations of entry luxury sport sedan segment buyers,” said Erwin Raphael, Chief Operating Officer, Genesis Motor America. “We continue to be thrilled, yet humbled, by the overwhelmingly positive response industry experts have had to the G70. The talented and dedicated team at Genesis worldwide is very inspired and motivated by this acknowledgement of their good work.”
The “Best of 2019” award from Cars.com, its highest, was presented by Jennifer Newman, editor-in-chief of the leading consumer advice website. Every year, Cars.com tests dozens of new vehicles and considers their respective quality, innovation, and value, to determine a winner.
“The Genesis G70 is as standout a choice as the editors at Cars.com have had in years,” said Jenni Newman, editor-in-chief of Cars.com. The fact that it comes amid consumers’ preference for SUVs says something of the headwinds the G70 faced in earning Cars.com’s Best of 2019 award. It stormed through, and then some.”
As the first Genesis model in the highly competitive entry luxury segment, G70 outperforms legacy luxury sport sedans with driver-focused performance. G70, which was named the 2019 North American Car of the Year, as well as receiving several other prominent awards in recent months, resets benchmarks and expectations among luxury sport sedans, with holistic integration of performance, body strength, refined luxury and aerodynamic design. Pricing starts at $34,900.
