2022 Kia Stinger vs 2022 Genesis G70: Compare Cars

Two of the more compelling sedans performing under the radar this year continue to be the Kia Stinger and Genesis G70. The related rear-wheel-drive cars offer unassuming but impressive performance at a relative value, and with a warranty and standard feature set that’s far better than other premium or entry-level luxury vehicles. 

Crafted by famed German auto designer Peter Schreyer, the two models share chassis, powertrains, and other mechanicals. For 2022, after about five years on the market, the brands disentangle the sedans’ shared DNA to make them each more representative of Kia and Genesis, who cultivate distinct identities under their parent Hyundai Motor Group. The refreshed Stinger sports a more powerful base engine to complement its fastback looks, and the refreshed 2022 Genesis G70 merges into the ascending design language of the Genesis luxury brand.

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Genesis G70 leads with luxury trimmings and service—and its footwork has caught up to its German rivals. The refreshed 2022 Stinger upgrades with the latest technology, but the new base powertrain is a letdown.
