2019 Genesis G70 Earns Canadian Best of the Best Title

Canadian Best of the Best - Toronto, ON

Since its introduction, the 2019 Genesis G70 has been making quite an impression on the Canadian market. Now, the sedan has been deemed the “complete package” by the Canadian Automotive Jury, who awarded the 2019 G70 with its annual “Best of the Best” award.

“This most recent award for G70 is particularly meaningful,” said Richard Trevisan, Genesis Motors Canada’s brand director. “The members of the Canadian Automotive Jury bring together a broad collective expertise and represent some of the top media outlets across the country. The accolade is therefore a testament to the exceptional achievements of our design and engineering teams in creating the G70.”

In order to be named the Canadian Best of the Best, the G70 had to outperform nine other finalists. The jury that decided the sedan’s fate was made up of 10 auto journalists from across the country.

The G70, which is currently available at Genesis Downtown, is the brand’s first foray into the compact luxury sedan segment. It focuses on offering the driving dynamics expected of its class, providing a rigid but lightweight platform that gives it a spirited, smooth ride.

Available all-wheel drive, a dynamic torque-vectoring-control system, and the standard 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 engine help this G70 perform well, with a zero-to-60 time of just 4.5 seconds. This powerful sedan also comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™.

Summer Car Care Tips for a Smooth Ride

Summer Car Care Tips for a Smooth Ride | Toronto, ON

It may be summer, but that doesn’t mean you get to put your car maintenance on hold. Here are a few important summer car care tips to remember during the hot months.

Keep your engine cool.

As temperatures rise, so does the chances of your engine overheating. To prevent getting stranded on the side of the road with an overheated engine, make sure your coolant system is working properly. Check the level of coolant fluid in your car and inspect the hoses and the coolant reservoir.

Give your air conditioning a check-up.

No one wants to get stuck in the summer without air conditioning. If your air conditioning isn’t working as well as it should, make an appointment to get it checked out here at Genesis Downtown. After all, you don’t want a minor problem to turn into a major one.

Don’t forget to change your wipers.

Rain happens even in the summer, which is why it’s important to ensure your windshield wipers are working as well as they can. If you haven’t changed your wipers in the last six months, now is the time to do so. Also, check your wipers for any cracks or chips that could hinder their performance.

3 Tips for Taking Care of Your Luxury Vehicle

Tips for taking care of your luxury vehicle - Toronto, ON

When you own a fancy luxury car, there’s more to it than just taking your vehicle out for a spin on the weekends. You need to keep up with its regular maintenance and ensure it’s functioning at the top of its game. Here at Genesis Downtown, we’ve put together some tips for taking care of your luxury car.

Follow the recommended maintenance schedule

Inside the owner’s manual of any car is a recommended schedule for routine maintenance. It’s there to ensure your vehicle is operating at its best. Also, keep in mind that you want to find an expert to tune up your luxury car — make sure that the mechanic taking care of it is a highly trained professional who knows what he or she is doing.

Clean your car frequently

Dirt and grime build up over time and can really do a number on your car’s exterior. If you wash your car every few weeks, this will ensure that there are no ill effects from the residue that comes with driving. When you do wash your car, don’t use your hose’s strongest setting as this can cause scratching. Instead, use buckets of water — and don’t forget to polish it afterward.

Spend extra money on high-quality products

Your luxury car likely cost you a bit of money, so why scrimp when it comes to the cleaning products you use on it? Make sure you’re getting the best ones possible to clean your car — even if they end up costing a little more.

If you’re looking for a car that’s the best of the best, visit Genesis Downtown to test-drive the 2019 Genesis G70. This model was recently awarded the 2019 Best of the Best award by The Canadian Automotive Jury, adding to its long list of accolades.  


To determine the winner of this award, ten prominent Canadian automotive journalists looked at the vehicles from the current model year. Each model is evaluated for its overall appeal with the top-ranked model being chosen from ten finalists, which includes the previous year’s winner.


“The most recent award for the G70 is particularly meaningful,” said Richard Trevisan, brand director of Genesis Motors Canada. “The members of the Canadian Automotive Jury bring together a broad collective expertise and represent some of the top media outlets across the country.

According to Jeremy Cato, an award-winning auto journalist, “The story here is primarily about road manners. The G70 manages to do something I did not think was possible — deliver what we used to call ‘German’ handling and responses.”


The G70 is the third new Genesis model to hit the scenes. The brand is expected to introduce three more before 2021.
