2019 Genesis G70 vs. Its Competition

2019 Genesis G70
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

Most competitors in the class are sized within inches of each other and margins for individuality are razor-thin.

The BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class have the longest pedigree and helped define the class.

The 3-Series is relatively old and due for an update, but features a compelling turbo-6 in 340i guise that’s an athlete on back roads.

The C-Class is more refined, with a stately shape, and sports a fire-breathing V-8 in top models.

The Audi A4 is the technophile of the crowd and offers a compelling turbo-4 and automatic transmission that blends quietly into the background.

The ATS is the wild child and overdue for a newer version.

It’s angular and expressive, but lacks the polish of the others.

The Infiniti Q50 is an outlier and offers a finicky infotainment setup that we don’t much like.

It’s the alternative to the alternative.

7.0
Pricey and on the slighter side of mid-size, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class drops a beautiful cockpit, huge dollops of safety, and effortless AMG brilliance into the sport-sedan mix.
