Motortrend “Given the importance of the segment (and the fierce competition), Genesis has one chance to make its impact felt. And we’re happy to say that for the most part, it’s succeeded. If Hyundai’s luxury arm can nail this whole image thing—and given the talent involved, there’s a good chance it will—the G70 will be instrumental in establishing Genesis as a luxury brand with a distinct identity.”

Car & Driver -HIGHS Well-executed design, solid construction, sporting dynamics, there’s a manual option. LOWS Tight rear seat, 2.0-liter engine short on character, automatic doesn’t shift as sharply as competitors’.

CNet Roadshow -To those who hold brand prestige in high regard, it likely won’t, because nothing will be able to rip them away from the Audi rings, BMW roundel or Mercedes three-pointed star. But for those looking to break from the crowd and want a genuinely competitive alternative, the G70 — which goes on sale in August with prices starting around $35,000 — is certainly worth your consideration.

Alex On Autos who is my go to for car reviews:

“Genesis is serious about making competitive luxury vehicles and the 2019 G70 3.3T is proof of that. If combines the precision and expected reliability of the Lexus IS with the driving dynamics of a Jaguar XE, the thrust of a BMW 340i and tops it off with a large interior. It also shines a light on the upcoming rear wheel drive Genesis crossovers which will be more BMW than Lexus in driving character.”

The FP has the review out as well. It’s up there on my next car list despite being smaller than my other front runners it might win me over other more practical options. I am genuinely excited for this car and after testing the very promising G80 Sport and Stinger GT I am looking forward even more to test driving a 3.3T Sport soon.
