Bottom Line

The Genesis G70 does what the Infiniti G35 did two decades prior: offers a genuine BMW 3 Series alternative. It's sharp to drive and look at, even if it can't quite match the polish of the BMW's drivetrain (or tech).

2024 Genesis G70 First Drive Review: Keeping It Fresh

For a certain generation of car enthusiast, the letter G followed by two digits holds a certain nostalgic appeal.

It’s true: back at the turn of the century, a certain Japanese brand took the fight to the Germans. Just as fashion is cyclical, so too is the compact luxury sedan scene: it was G35 then, but G70 now. The Genesis G70 has held that torch for a few years however, and for 2024 the Korean luxury brand has updated its entry-level model with a new engine and more tech to keep it appealing to the sedan loyalist. We spent a day with every permutation of the latest G70, on both road and track, to see how it stacks up.

2024 Genesis G70 Hands-on Preview: Better as Standard

Genesis is tweaking its small sedan with more tech and a powerful base engine.

Genesis started as a sedan company. The Korean luxury brand kicked off with the G80 and G90, fleshing out the lineup with the G70 sport sedan for 2019. Shortly after the SUVs followed, and it should come as no surprise they now make up a huge chunk of sales. But the G70 continues to sell in consistent numbers in both Canada and the US, and for 2024, Genesis is sweetening the deal with a handful of choice upgrades.

2022 Genesis G70 Review: First Drive

You didn’t envy the Genesis team tasked with giving the G70 its mid-cycle update.

Improving on greatness is tough. When the G70 showed up on the scene for 2019 it wowed critics, including this very publication when we named it our 2019 Car of the Year. Genesis stole BMW’s lunch money, building a better compact sport sedan than the venerable 3 Series, yet also undercutting it.

In the three short years since, Genesis has spread its distinctive Athletic Elegance design language across its rapidly expanding lineup. As the final hold-out, now it’s time for the G70 to get the twin-line treatment. Thankfully, Genesis hasn’t messed with the basics, producing a satisfying compact sport sedan that continues to offer outstanding dynamics at a remarkable value. Now it even looks cooler, too.

Acura TLX Type S vs Genesis G70 Comparison: Sport Sedan Shoot-Out

Back in the early aughts Acura put Type S branding on several of its cars, which I remember well because for a short period of time, I sold them.

The CL, TL and RSX were all Type S cars, and they were the ones that got me excited to go the showroom everyday.

Those heady days of 2002 didn’t last long, however, and soon those cars became extinct as Acura moved away from precision crafted performance and into a long winter of entry-level luxury boredom. Thankfully, the brand emerged from its decade-plus doldrums in 2016, with an all-new NSX and a rededication to precision crafted performance. Acura was back.

And while it took a few years, Type S is back too, with TLX and MDX variants that are built for performance.
