Simply stunning!

I drove an Audi S5, BMW m340i and hesitantly - I decided to go with the G70. Having had it for a week now, I am in awe of everything from the build quality to performance. What started as a decision solely based on cost savings has turned into an affection for the brand. And having switched from a Tesla model 3, I am blown away by this vehicle’s performance. Its an absolute machine. Downfalls include the partly digital cluster, though you get used to it quickly. I think they could clean up the interior by getting rid of most of the chrome, but we’re splitting hairs at this point. I love the G70 and arguably will be a fan for life. Not to make sure they keep their promise on the service side and hopefully, this amazing warranty holds true too. Time will tell but I’m in love.

I took a test drive on the highway and then around a few city turns, then looked again at the features on the window sticker and the drive-out price and asked my sales person where to sign so I could drive it home asap. The G70 got my attention back in 2020 but at the time we opted for the Accord 2.0, which is no slouch, because of price and practicality as the grocery getter. This time, for our 2nd car, the G70 with advanced package and RWD sat in the sweet spot. The exterior looks even better after the refresh as does the dash. This machine is beautiful in and out. I also had to make sure my golf bag fit in the smallish trunk and it did. I drove MB and Audi between '06 and '20 and while I loved them both, the price/performance ratio on this G70 can't be beat.

This car has exceeds my expectations on so many levels. It’s power from the twin turbo awd v6 is a pleasure to drive. Extremely agile, yet luxurious. Fit & finish are very high quality. Looks are subjective, however this car has so many nice body lines. Add in the covered mainline (take note bmw/Mercedes’ Benz /Audi) plus the best warranty it’s a home run.

Love the car; customer experience, not so much

I’ve had my 2021 G70 for a month now and I love the way it drives, looks, feels, and sounds. This is a Prestige with every bell and whistle available. The interior is amazing: I just sink in and enjoy the drive, even if it’s just to the store and back. But getting this car in my garage was a torturous process of awful local dealership experiences that evoked third-rate used car lots rather than a luxury brand (I ended up traveling 200 miles away to get this car). I went in for my first service today (locally) and the experience was just as bad. Genesis/Hyundai: train your people! You will never be a competitive luxury brand when every customer experience is a joke. Up your game. Don’t make me regret that I bought this car. The 5 stars is for the car ONLY. Customer experience is 1-star.

Bought 2.0T AWD to replace muscle commuter

Riding in a friend's GV80 with Highway Driving Assist immediately convinced me to look at Genesis. I seriously do not like long drives and traffic so thought I'd replace an optioned out 2018 392 Challenger with something that could help make long trips and lines of traffic bearable. My initial concern was that I'd miss the 392's acceleration so I test drove both a 3.3T and a 2.0T, but to be honest, I didn't feel there was a huge "street legal" difference in performance between those two Genesis engines. In full disclosure, I also own an 1100 rwhp Camaro, so my yardstick pushed the 2.0T and 3.3T's performance well to the left of not simply the 392, but definitely that of the Camaro. Public streets being what they are, especially with rush hour traffic, I couldn't justify the extra $9k for a 3.3T AWD. Give me that Highway Driving Assist to deal with long trips, an AWD powertrain to deal with poor weather conditions, and the best factory sound system. Those 3 items can be found with the smaller engine, but I will say, the Lexicon sound system is not as good as the Harmon Kardon's found in any of the BMW/Dodge/Mercedes/RAM vehicles. And that's a shame, so one star off. I will say, in support of the 4 stars, that every day I drive the G70, I like it more and more. I was briefly considering a WRX, but the Genesis definitely feels more substantial, better built, comes with the best tech this side of Mercedes, and has more efficient powertrain. I do wish the 2.0T models had some of the features the 3.3T has, like HUD, buttonless trunk opener, digital key and...well, that's about it, and those aren't deal breakers for a car that does 12 miles (30 minutes) per day. This is a great 3 series type car, and that doesn't even consider the price point, so yes, great car!
