Cosmetic issues

Overall performance great but when it's comes to the bronze and chrome finishes on my 2020 G70 AWD, I'm very disappointed with the quality of the product. The bronze on the front grill are peeling off and the windows chrome finishes are fading away. Very disappointed with the quality of the product.


I love my car!

I really love all the safety features and the speed. It is really fun to drive, cool looking and fast. The only negative is the miles per gallon, but everything else makes up for it.


Why buy a BMW?

I have owned 5 BMW's. My G70 V6 Sport equals or surpasses my BMW's. Luxurious, fast, great handling, comfortable, totally reliable and an incredible bargain. With the sole exception of my C7 Z51 Corvette, best car I have ever owned. Back seat a little tight and mileage around town not great, but fr outweighed by all the car's virtues.


Best daily driver you can get right now!

If you are thinking about getting a G70, just do it!! You will not regret your decision, especially if you get the V6 3.3T Lambda engine. This car is fun, fast, and very well built. The craftsmanship and quality feel is amazing. Everything is real; if it looks like that material, it is that material, no fake stuff!! The engine and transmission is amazing. Although the engine is not a rev happy "over squared" design, it is ready at any notice to shoot up the RPMs and move. The Lambda V6 3.3T in this vehicle is by far one of the nicest engines I have driven. A lot of people complain about the 8-speed transmission being a little slow, but I think it shifts perfectly fine and crisp. The interior is built to last. If you don't require much, you will be perfectly at home with almost too much comfort. My favorite thing is the ventilated seats on sweaty days. My main focus of this review is how the G70 drives. As stated before, the engine has tons of power at any moment, is very responsive, and has tons of passing power/acceleration. No one will ride your butt in this car, just smash the gas and watch them disappear in the rear mirrors! It is amazing for highway travel. It hums at a low 1,500rpm @55mph, and about 1,800rpm @80mph. This engine will not scream at you for making it do its job. Not only is it a highway cruiser, but is super fun on the back roads. You almost always run out of real estate before you have to step on the brakes from accelerating (brakes are great too).I wouldn't say it has snap oversteer, but the front-end xxxxxxin first before you feel the rear slide out, so you can feel how hard you can push it. Maintenance is tricky, but doable. It requires 7.26qts of oil, which is a decent amount. But, if you are smart, you can get reasonably priced parts, as it is shares a lot of parts with Hyundai/Kia's. To change the oil, you have to remove some under panels, which is annoying, but reasonable. It does have a oil filter cartridge, no spin on type, not a huge fan of those. It also is pure GDI, so carbon build-up is possible on the valves. But with just those few complaints, everything is very accessible in the engine bay for a twin turbo V6. SUMMARY: You will mostly likely buy/lease this car and not want to let it go!


Just bought the new car 1 month ago and loving it.

The exterior is good looking and sporty. The front grill is eye catching. The interior is luxurious and the leather is exceptionally plush and soft. Comes with all the safety features , other luxury sports sedans you will pay for. The 3.3 twin turbo AWD drives like a sporty car should feel . The car is fast and the performance puts a smile on my face when I'm driving especially in the mountain curvy roads.


Great Looking, Head Turner

Just bought it about (3) months ago. It turns a lot of heads wherever I drive it. I've had several people ask "what it is", because it doesn't have the normal upscale badges or symbols on the grill / trunk - yet it looks very upscale. I have to explain that Genesis is a real car company, not just a fancy Hyundai.


Fastest car I’ve owned!

The G70 3.3T AWD Elite is a luxury sport car that beats my old BMW 328i Xdrive. More bells and whistles for a better price!


Most exciting car I've owned

From a gs350 Lexus this 2020 g70 3.3t is far more then what I expected. Smooth ride, super fast, quiet interior, comfortable instrument setup. One draw back if you want to call it is tight rear seating. A+


Get the 3.3

I test drove the 4 and 6 cylinder versions and the 3.3 is the one to get. The power is smooth and the car has excellent handling. The Prestige trim gives you a luxury interior that appears as though you spend thousands more.


Buy This Car

I am now 3 weeks into my purchase of a genesis g70. It’s outstanding in every respect. Fun to drive, super quiet inside, comfortable with the best sound system I’ve heard in any car. It doesn’t make sense that genesis is still flying under the radar. I looked at bmw, Acura and Infiniti and I am thrilled that I chose this car. Go take a test drive. You won’t be sorry.
