Kelley Blue Book put together an interesting side-by-side comparison with the G70 and the Infiniti Q50. What's interesting about their final recommendation is that despite KBB saying the G70 "either equals or beats the Q50 in every category," they still bring up that it doesn't have the same track record as the Q50.

Hopefully it's only a matter of time before reviewers stop bringing this up against the G70.
Similarities
2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder base engines and twin-turbo V6 upgrades; nearly identical fuel economy in base model; neither has a hybrid option; both thousands less than German rivals.

2019 Genesis G70 Advantages
Optional manual transmission in upper-level Sport model; slightly lower starting price; more power in base model; longer warranty.

2019 Infiniti Q50 Advantages
Bigger trunk; base V6 model is less expensive; proven reputation, whereas the Genesis is brand-new.

Final Recommendation
Choosing between these two is a very difficult decision to make, because they’re both so good in so many ways. Both the 2019 Genesis G70 and Infiniti Q50 are fantastic to look at, comfortable, great to drive, and very responsive. The Infiniti has been around a long time, from its previous naming convention of G35/G37 to now Q50, while the Genesis is a brand-new model. So, if you’re looking for a car with more of a track record, the 2019 Infiniti Q50 is a good pick. Still, the Genesis G70 is an absolutely fantastic car, and on paper it either equals or beats the Q50 in every category. If you’re looking for something a bit different and new, the Genesis is worth a look with the added bonus of having a longer warranty.

And what is your opinion of the Infinity Q50 / Q60 models?
Do any of them have a manual transmission option?
The Q50 and Q60 only come with automatic transmissions, no manuals unfortunately. From my understanding they're solid cars but I haven't driven one. Styling wise I prefer the G70's looks over both of them. Are you considering getting a Q50/Q60?

I’m loving my new G70 3.3T Prestige. The Q60 is out dated, bad media interface and the G70 is so much fun to drive. The Q60 is sexy...

I just grounded my 2017 Q50 3.0 the other day. It was an alright experience and I wouldn’t recommend owning an infinity for the following reasons.

1-Poor customer service
2-outdated technology
3-Turbo legs bad
4-Obsolete design

Conclusion: G70 is a way better car in every single aspect.
