2020 Genesis G70 vs. Its Competition

2020 Genesis G70
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Genesis G70 is a small luxury sedan that competes with rivals that have more established identities and names, even if sales in the class have slowed.

The BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C Class are stalwarts and still the benchmark that others are measured against.

Each have similar powertrains to the G70, but deliver their goods in different ways—BMW edges toward performance, Benz is a little more graceful.

The Audi A4 is updated this year with a new look, but it’s the conservative pick of the bunch.

The Cadillac CT4 is new this year, we’ll update this once we’ve driven it.

The Lexus IS is the most aged of the bunch, discounts should be available for it.
