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.

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™.
