Loading Comparison...


The new 2019 Genesis G70 compact sport sedan joins the larger G80 and G90 sedans for the 2019 model year. The latest entrant from Hyundai’s luxury-level Genesis brand is a close relative of Kia’s recently-launched Stinger. Improved dynamics give the 2019 G70 a performance boost over the Stinger, but the luxury compact Genesis sedan has less interior space.

Ready to compete vigorously against such familiar sport sedans as the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the G70 is tuned for sportier behavior than its Kia cousin. Not only is the G70 smaller and more posh than the Stinger, it’s a sedan (with trunk) rather than a hatchback.

Two versions are available: 2.0T with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, and 3.3T with V-6 power. Advanced, Elite, Prestige, Dynamic, and Sport trim levels are offered with the 4-cylinder engine. Only four trims are available with V-6 power.

Unlike Kia’s Stinger, the G70 can be equipped with a manual gearbox, as an alternative to automatic.

In the 2.0T, the turbo four develops 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is standard, but a 6-speed manual transmission is optional (raising horsepower to 255). Only the automatic mates with the 3.3T’s 365-horsepower turbocharged V-6, rated at 376 pound-feet.

Rear-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive can be substituted on all models except the manual-transmission 2.0T Sport.

Each G70 incorporates launch control. All V-6 sedans and the 2.0T Sport get a limited-slip differential, promising improved cornering and control. Brembo brakes are available, to enhance stopping power. Options include a 15-speaker Lexicon audio system and leather upholstery.

Numerous active safety features are standard, including adaptive cruise control, forward- collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, and active lane control. Blind-spot monitoring includes rear cross-traffic warnings. Also standard are a rearview camera, driver attention warning, and automatic high-beams. Prestige trim adds a surround-view camera system, as well as adaptive headlights that move to point the way through curves or corners.

No crash-testing has been undertaken by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Two special-edition models have been available, in limited quantity: Dynamic and Design. Each is based on the 3.3T Sport.


Prices do not include $995 destination charge.

2.0T Advanced ($34,900 rear-drive, $36,900 all-wheel drive) comes with the 4-cylinder engine, 18-inch alloy wheels, synthetic leather seat trim, remote keyless entry, power driver’s seat with power lumbar support, heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, LED daytime running lights and taillights, 60/40-split folding rear seat, and auto-dimming mirror.

2.0T Dynamic ($43,900 rear-drive, $45,900 all-wheel drive) includes a limited-slip differential (on rear-drive models) and 19-inch alloy wheels with summer tires.

2.0T Sport ($44,900 rear-drive, $46,900 all-wheel drive) includes 19-inch wheels, an adaptive suspension, alloy pedals, dark chrome grille, dark tint taillight covers, and Nappa leather seat trim with Sport quilting.

2.0T Sport manual ($37,900) has a 6-speed manual gearbox, sport exhaust, manual parking brake, aluminum door and console trim, and power driver’s seat cushion extension.

2.0T Elite ($39,900 rear-drive, $41,900 all-wheel drive) includes a sunroof, low-beam assist, rain-sensing wipers, front/rear parking sensors, and wireless smartphone charging.

2.0T Prestige ($44,900 all-wheel drive) includes Nappa leather seat upholstery with Luxury quilting, a head-up display, a surround-view camera system, heated rear seats, and synthetic suede headliner.

3.3T Advanced ($43,750 rear-drive, $45,750 all-wheel drive) is similar to 2.0T Advanced, but with V-6 engine. Standard features include a power-adjustable steering wheel, Brembo brakes, dual exhaust, sport-tuned suspension, variable ratio steering, navigation, and heated and cooled leather front seats.

3.3T Elite ($45,500 rear-drive, $47,500 all-wheel drive) is similar to 2.0T Elite.

3.3T Prestige ($48,000 rear-drive, $50,000 all-wheel drive) is similar to 2.0T Prestige.

3.3T Sport ($49,500 rear-drive, $51,500 all-wheel drive) is similar to 2.0T Sport, with alloy pedals, an adaptive suspension, and dark tint taillight covers.

3.3T Design Edition ($48,750 rear-drive, $50,750 all-wheel drive) comes with Black Forest Green body color, Nappa leather upholstery with Luxury quilting, 19-inch wheels, and heated steering wheel (AWD).

3.3T Dynamic Edition ($50,250 rear-drive, $52,250 all-wheel drive) features Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, performance brake pads, an adaptive suspension, and tire mobility kit.


A particularly capable newcomer, the new G70 sedan bursts into a new branch of the sedan market. Nearly three inches shorter in wheelbase than the Kia Stinger to which it’s related, the G70 is 5.8 inches shorter overall. Most body dimensions come within an inch or two of its likely rivals, cars such as the BMW 3-Series and Audi A4.

Designers melded an aggressive stance with premium-sedan detailing, creating a sedan that can be branded both sporty and luxurious. Essentially, the G70 design descends from the larger Genesis G80.

Front fenders and lower bumpers, as well as the nose itself, convey assertive intentions. A long, creased hood and hexagonal mesh grille complement the winged Genesis badge. Energetic air intakes and dynamic strakes, along with boomerang-shaped elements, help to evoke a sense of adventure.


In any trim level, the G70 is packed with appealing features that blend sport with luxury.

Horizontal lines highlight the dashboard, while the center stack and the small-diameter steering wheel lean toward the driver. The information screen rises from the center. Diamond-tufted leather upholstery and knurled dials suggest upper-end luxury motorcars.

Front seats are sporty and supportive as well as spacious, substantially bolstered, and ready for long-term comfort. Back-seat space is acceptable for adults but on the tight side, especially for taller riders. At 10.5 cubic feet, the trunk is surprisingly small for a car in this class, but its rear seats fold down.

Driving Impressions

Proven on the Nürburgring track, the G70 promises nimble yet neutral handling, with sharper, more predictable moves than Kia’s Stinger. Ride quality is firmer – especially in V-6 models – but not excessively harsh.

Backed by brisk responses, on-road dynamics qualify as exceptional. Acceleration to 60 mph takes about 6.5 seconds with the turbo-4, versus a rocket-like 4.5 seconds with the potent, lively V-6. Peak V-6 horsepower emerges at a lofty 6,000 rpm.

Though reasonably quiet, the V-6 can howl when pushed hard. The 8-speed automatic yields responsive shifts. Rev-matching can smooth downshifts during high-performance driving.

A little lighter than Kia’s Stinger, the G70 uses aluminum for the hood and suspension components, boosting handling while saving weight.

All three levels of suspension tuning are stiffer than Kia’s. The 4-cylinder models are softest, while the 3.3T Dynamic Edition is stiffest. On lumpy pavement, even base 2.0T models yield a firm ride.

Suspension stiffness translates to sharp handling. A G70 flows gracefully along curvy roads. Its steering feels properly weighted, with ample on-center stability and balanced cornering.

Fuel economy is passable, considering engine power. With automatic, rear-drive, and the turbo 4-cylinder, the G70 is EPA-rated at 22/30 mpg City/Highway, or 25 mpg Combined. Manual shift drops the estimate to 18/28/22 mpg. With all-wheel drive and automatic, the turbo-4 is EPA-rated at 21/28 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined.

The rear-drive V-6 model is EPA-rated at 18/26 mpg City/Highway, or 21 mpg Combined, versus 18/25/20 mpg for the all-wheel-drive version.


Hyundai’s Genesis brand has created a worthy competitor to German entry-luxury sport sedans. Genesis’ G70 offers a broad variety of trim levels, with two hearty engine choices. Even the base 2.0T Advanced model holds plenty of standard equipment.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
