With the 2022 G70, Genesis credibly challenges rival luxury sports sedans for back-road performance supremacy. This surprisingly small car features a turbocharged four-cylinder or twin-turbocharged V6 engine, rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD), and lots of luxe for fewer bucks than BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

What’s New for the 2022 Genesis G70?

Genesis gives the 2022 G70 a cosmetic makeover by adding the company’s “Athletic Elegance” styling themes to align the car with the rest of the automaker’s offerings. New infotainment and driving assistance systems also arrive, adding technological sophistication to the G70.

Genesis G70 Competitors for 2022

The Genesis G70 is small — even by compact luxury sedan standards. It contains tight rear-seat accommodations and restrictive trunk space. Therefore, while it rivals models like the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, it must also contend with the Audi A3, BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe, and Mercedes-Benz A-Class and CLA-Class models. The Acura TLX, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Cadillac CT4 and CT5, Infiniti Q50, Jaguar XF, Lexus IS, and Volvo S60 also compete in this segment.

My first word was “car.” That’s what I’m told, anyway. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with them. The design. The engineering. The performance. And the purpose. I’m a car enthusiast who loves to drive, but I’m also most interested in the cars, trucks, and SUVs that people actually buy. Anybody can tell you that a sports car is fast. What you need to know is whether or not you should buy that new SUV, and why. My life purpose is to help you make that decision.
