Genesis G70
STATUS: Unchanged for 2020 - The midsize G70 sedan is aimed at the BMW 3-series, the Jaguar XE and the Audi A4. The G70's platform is a shortened version of the one used for the Kia Stinger hatchback (Kia is owned by Hyundai). The base 2.0T is armed with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The 3.3T has a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V-6 that puts out 365 horses and 376 pound-feet of torque. Genesis claims this engine can launch the G70 to 60 mph from rest in 4.5 seconds. An eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is standard with either engine. Its rev-matching feature blips the throttle to smooth out the downshifts. A six-speed manual gearbox is available in the rear-wheel-drive 2.0 as part of a Sport package that includes Brembo-brand brakes, limited-slip differential and alloy pedals. The stick-shift. The Sport can also be had with the V-6 and all-wheel-drive.
