The Genesis G70 continues to impress with its successful blend of sportiness and luxury. Yesterday it was announced that the G70 would be receiving another distinction, claiming the 2019 North American Car of the Year award.
Hyundai has proven that their young luxury brand is more than capable of bringing the fight to established German rivals. It beat out the Honda Insight and Volvo S60/V60, which were the two finalists in the category.
Fifty-four jurors cast their votes on respective winners in each class, coming from a variety of different automotive publications and websites across the United States and Canada. This annual award is reserved for a car that sets new benchmarks for design, innovation, safety, performance, and dollar value.
While there were doubts that the Korean brand could succeed in such a competitive segment, Genesis’ driver-focused luxury sedan not only meets the established criteria but in many ways improves upon it. We expect that this new, impressive vehicle will serve as an aspirational halo vehicle for all future models from the brand.
