So much better than my BMW and other German cars

by strich9 from Austin, TX | November 09, 2019

This is a far better car than any of the German cars I've owned (besides purist track cars like my Porsche). People are saying the much more expensive 2020 M340i slightly edges it out, but I'm getting better acceleration and 1/4 mile times (not getting into road courses with my daily yet) than what the magazines are stating. I'm dynoing far above the advertised Torque at the wheel - by almost 50 lbs of Torque. I don't know if I got a ringer, but other folks are getting the same. I'm getting 0-60 in 4.3-4.4 without launch control - which is faster. I'm also running 12.4-5 in the 1/4 without launch control and shifting early around 5300 rpm. This is the 3.3T. The 3.5T comes out in a year and I'm thinking about upgrading. It has adaptive dampners and handles much better than the Kia Stinger GT2 with better suspension set up and lighter than the GT2 Stinger. The only downside would be the back seat is a bit cramped (quilted Napa leather is nice - no cheap plastics in this car) and it doesn't offer a manual in the 3.3T engine option. This is the first non-3 pedal car I've owned for myself in over 20 years. I would have paid more for a manual no matter how great the auto is - and it is. The car is all around better tuned and nicer than the GT2 Stinger. The GT2 Stinger is roomier and more of a GT for the family. I gave that up for the better tuned engine and suspension in the G70 3.3T Sport/Elite/Prestige. My only complaint is lack of forward adjustable headrest like is in other Genesis models and in the overseas version. The sounds system is the best I've ever had and blows my top of the line BMW sound system out of the water. The build quality and interior quality is far better than my previous 3 series vehicles.

Great Car.

Enjoying my new car. Great performance and very stylish. The price was amazing. For better value then the BMW 340, Lexus IS and Audi A4 I was looking at.

Great car, but first year issues.

by TTChicago from Chicago, IL | October 21, 2019

This car is amazing, and an incredible value for the money. On the road it is smooth, and much quieter than some of my previous cars, like the 2014 Mazda 3 and an older Toyota Corolla. However, it is not nearly as quiet as the Genesis G80 or Chrysler 300 that I’ve rented and driven. For example, my Genesis G70 3.3T AWD with Elite package does NOT come with an acoustic windshield or acoustic side glass. As a result, anything past 65 mph on the highway gets loud, fast. On crappy Chicago pavement the ride is firm, but not crashy, just right for me. However the car does quickly reveal random buzzes and rattles, which is concerning in a car in this price range. Most Toyota and Lexus cars, and even the Genesis G80 had no interior rattles on the same streets. The best part about this car is the 3.3 liter engine, and the handling. The car can be violently fast when you want it to be, and the steering feels “on rails”, especially when taking on or exit ramps at high speeds. The engine makes an OK sound, but even with the audio pumped into the cabin, it doesn’t sound aggressive enough. Definitely better than any 4 cylinder sound, though. Quality is proving to be a bit of a concern. The dealer has to fix a B pillar panel that is coming unglued on the outside driver’s door of the car...and it’s only 3 weeks old. In addition, the air conditioning system developed some strange noises. The dealer will be taking a look at that as well. Finally, Genesis Connected Services did not work for two weeks because the car’s modem would not recognize the USIM card. That was eventually resolved. It may be worth waiting a year or two for production issues to get worked out.
