We don’t always report on premium car-audio systems, and when we do, it’s usually to help shoppers decide if they want to spend the extra money on an option. In the case of our long-term Genesis G70, winner of our Best of 2019 award, that’s not really the situation. We haven’t heard the G70’s basic audio system, and you probably won’t either, because the Lexicon 15-speaker audio system comes on practically all versions. The only way not to get it is to buy the base G70 2.0T Advanced with no option packages added. In automatic-transmission-equipped cars, the Lexicon setup comes in the $5,000 Elite Package along with a navigation system, parking sensors, power-folding and auto-dimming side mirrors, leather upholstery and many more features.
But that package is a prerequisite for other option packages, as well, so you’re pretty much going to get it, knowing how dealerships order vehicles. It’s even standard with the 3.3T version, which bears the G70’s larger engine.
