The Genesis G70 is a credible challenger to German sport sedans like the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. It is engaging to drive, well-equipped, and nicely finished. But it falls short on a few measurements that cause it to rank midpack among its direct competitors. From the first mile, the G70 comes across as well-tuned, with a welcomed balance of performance, ride, and handling.
