Genesis G70

Price $42,000 – $57,500
Fuel consumption 8.5 – 13.3 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 79%(view ratings)
Genesis' new model was an instant hit when it was introduced in 2018. With a 365-horsepower, twin-turbo V6 or a 252-horsepower four-cylinder turbo, this is the first compact luxury sedan to come out of Korea and measure up against the European elite. Purists will love the fact that a manual gearbox is available with a rear-wheel drivetrain, but all-wheel drive makes this vehicle easier to live with all year round.
