Genesis GV70 | Toronto, ON

Genesis vehicles are built to impress, offering a wealth of innovative features and thrilling powertrains with attractive overall designs. As such, it should come as no surprise that every single Genesis model was named to the Car and Driver 2022 Editors’ Choice List.

The automotive experts at Car and Driver (C/D) researched and tested more than 400 vehicles and pared that down to a total of 116 in the final list. Here’s what they had to say about the Genesis lineup:

  • Genesis GV70, Compact Luxury SUV: As the newest model in the lineup, the GV70 was praised by C/D editors for its sporty handling, engine offerings, and premium interior design.
  • Genesis GV80, Mid-Size Luxury SUV: Similar to the GV70, the C/D editors noted that the cabin of the GV80 is also elevated and well-tailored. The SUV also stood out for its smooth, quiet ride and its many standard tech features.
  • Genesis G70, Entry-Luxury Car: The playful handling and premium cabin of the G70 helped this model stand out to the Car and Driver editors. Its affordable price was a bonus that was also appreciated.
  • Genesis G80, Mid-Size Luxury Car: To directly quote the editors at Car and Driver, the G80 was praised for “Lovely interior design, packed with features, bargain pricing.”
  • Genesis G90, Full-Size Luxury Car: In a crowded segment, the G90 stood out for its “silky-smooth” engine options, high-end looks, and budget-friendly pricing.

Canadian Automotive Jury Honors Genesis G70 with 2019 Best of the Best Award

Genesis G70 - Toronto, ON

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. This accolade is therefore a testament to the exceptional achievements of our design and engineering teams in creating the G70.”


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.
