If a new car isn’t under the tree, it’s ok. Consider starting the new year with a 2019 Genesis G70 2.0T Sport. This sporty vehicle offers a blend of athletic styling, performance and smart technology. In fact, it’s already been named MotorTrend’s 2019 Car of the Year®

This ve sophisticated all-wheel drive system works in sync with Dynamic Torque Vectoring Control to deliver enhanced stability and quicker response on slippery roads. A standard 2.0L turbocharged GDI 4-cylinder engine delivers an exhilarating 252 hp.

In typical Genesis fashion, all of their most advanced safety features and technology, like Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, are standard. 

The Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go helps keep the car stay in flow with traffic. The G70’s Smart Cruise Control’s front-mounted radar sensor detects the distance to the car ahead, automatically maintaining your distance and speed from that vehicle. Even after a full stop, speed and distance control is re-engaged when the car ahead starts moving again. Smart technology that’s also safe!

As I was driving, I felt  in sync with the vehicle thanks to advanced, fully integrated technologies that includes Heads-up Display, a Surround View Monitor and  a large screen navigation.

One of the many high-tech entities of the G70 Sport are the side mirrors that automatically open up, as the driver approaches the vehicle—a motion detector type feature that’s really cool and convenient.
