The launch of the 2019 Genesis G70 luxury sedan has been a little unusual. Genesis introduced the car in South Korea earlier this year, but decided to show the car for the first time in the U.S. at the 2018 New York International Auto Show, which is where we had a look at it.

From the outside, the G70 is an attractive little beast, but the styling elements aren’t exactly new — that front end is a good mix of Maserati Ghibli and Infiniti Q50, while the back end combines elements of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the rear-wheel-drive BMW 3 Series. Unlike the Kia Stinger, this is a sedan with a proper trunk, not a hatchback with an open cargo area. The overall look is appealing, but not terribly distinctive, and isn’t likely to stand out too much in the crowded, competitive compact luxury sedan field that has lookers such as the Alfa Romeo Giulia.
