The G70 is getting more industry recognition, this time with awards from SAMA and NEMPA. As Genesis sorts out supply issues I bet we'll see more!
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, California, June 4, 2019 — The 2019 Genesis G70 received awards in the last two weeks from two leading media associations, in recognition of its outstanding overall performance. The Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA), based in Miami, Fla., bestowed G70 with its Best Panoramic Sunroof Sedan award at its annual Topless in Miami drive event, while the New England Motor Press Association (NEMPA) named G70 its Best Winter Sedan at the NEMPA MIT Technology Conference held in Boston, Mass.
“These two awards represent affirmation from respected media professionals that our engineers succeeded in making the Genesis G70 luxury sport sedan one of the most highly capable all-season sedans.” said Erwin Raphael, Chief Operating Officer, Genesis Motor America.
Each year, both NEMPA and SAMA honor new vehicles that stand out in their respective classes at an annual media association gathering. 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 more than a dozen other prominent industry 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.
