FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., April 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Genesis today announced that its entry-luxury G70 was recognized as Good Housekeeping magazine's 2020 Best New Family Car Award Winner in the Luxury Sedan category. This accolade represents the 21st award from a major, well-respected third-party since the G70's launch in the Fall of 2018.
"The G70 is the spark in our lineup. It's the spring in our step," said Mark Del Rosso, President and CEO of Genesis Motor North America. "So we just love it when third parties like Good Housekeeping get to experience the same feeling and share that with their audience."
"It's a super fun-to-drive, upscale vehicle…," wrote Good Housekeeping editors. "The exterior is designed to get noticed – and if you get behind the wheel, you'll notice it does turn heads."
As the first Genesis model in the highly competitive entry-luxury sedan segment, G70 outperforms legacy luxury sport sedans with driver-focused performance. Since its debut, the G70 has been named the 2019 North American Car of the Year, the MotorTrend 2019 Car of the Year, as well as a category winner in the Car and Driver 2019 10Best awards, among more than a dozen other significant third-party industry awards.
G70's ability to acquire such a wide array of prominent industry awards is proof it resets benchmarks and expectations among luxury sport sedans, with the holistic integration of performance, refined luxury, aerodynamic design and an extensive array of passive and active safety equipment available. Pricing starts at $35,450.
