We love the 2019 Genesis G70 so much that we named the all-new luxury sports sedan Cars.com’s Best of 2019 vehicle, our top award. One of the ways it won us over was how well it smoked the competition, including the BMW 3 Series. But … that was the old 3 Series. The BMW sports sedan is redesigned for 2019 — so how does the new model match up against our old favorite?
We pitted the two vehicles against each other on a racetrack, a skid pad and an autocross course, as well as just during a good old-fashioned drive. Then we measured trunk space, calculated backseat room, tested multimedia systems and compared just about every component of each sedan to the other — including price and powertrain, where we saw some surprises.
Spoiler alert: Both sedans are delightful. But which one came out on top? Fasten your seat belts and watch the video of this head-to-head challenge for the results.
