Another award for the G70.
It has to be the most awarded car of the year.
Maybe it should get an award for that. LOL!



FOUNTAIN VALLEY, California, April 11, 2019 – The 2019 Genesis G70 has been named a “2019 Best New Car” by Autotrader. The award, which was agreed upon unanimously among Autotrader editors, was presented to G70 on the basis of its class-redefining merits. Conveying the stand-out attributes of G70, they noted that its interior is “a highlight that rivals cars costing tens of thousands of dollars more.”

“This award is further recognition of the G70’s outstanding positioning among luxury sport sedans,” said Erwin Raphael, Chief Operating Officer, Genesis Motor America. We are honored for our new G70 to receive this accolade from Autotrader.”.

G70 was selected by the editors of Autotrader from a list of over 300 eligible, new vehicles. Led by Editor-in-Chief Brian Moody, the team of editors spent the year testing interior comfort and materials, build quality, available features and ride quality.

“Anyone can get a European luxury sedan, in some cities, they’re almost common,” said Autotrader Executive Editor, Brian Moody. “The Genesis G70 takes a different path. A loaded G70 with very impressive performance will set you back about $45,000. A nicely equipped and still luxurious base model is about ten grand less than that. It’s an excellent performance/luxury car for those who don’t want to follow the crowd.”

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 several other prominent 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.

Lets hope that all these accolades translate to successful sales numbers for year 1. Every bit of recognition counts, especially in a segment that's been on a heavy decline.
It's an awesome car, but I haven't had the chance to test drive one myself, but I've been doing a lot of research on it, and everything I've seen and heard has been really impressive. And the fact that it's being recognized not just for its performance but for its interior quality and design is really saying something. Also, just wanted to share with you and anyone else reading this that if you ever find yourself in a situation where you need to ship a car to another state, there are actually a lot of really great options out there. I had to do it once and was a bit nervous about the process, but I found a reputable company that made everything super easy and stress-free.
