Genesis G70 3.3T Review – Setting the Sport Sedan Benchmark

Germany has always dominated the compact sport sedan class with the BMW 3-series.

For 2019, Korea comes in with a strong sucker punch with the new 2019 G70.  Fortified with 365 horsepower from a twin-turbo V6, standard RWD (or available AWD), Brembo brakes, plentiful standard equipment wrapped in one seriously attractive design inside and out.
