FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Genesis G70 luxury sport sedan has been recognized as the leading Aspirational Luxury Car in the 2019 Ideal Vehicle Awards presented by AutoPacific, the leading automotive research consultancy. AutoPacific's Ideal Vehicle Awards study asks owners to consider 14 vehicle attributes that they would want to change, and winners are selected based on the lowest desire for change. Over 50,000 vehicle owners contributed to the 2019 decision-making process.
"At Genesis, we design and engineer our luxury vehicles so they deliver, if not exceed, our owners' expectations, so we are honored to receive this award from AutoPacific that affirms our approach," said Erwin Raphael, Chief Operating Officer, Genesis Motor America.
This award for G70 continues a string of recognition by AutoPacific of Genesis leadership in the luxury automotive space. Last year, Genesis was named Highest Satisfaction Premium Brand, and the G90 flagship sedan was awarded the AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Award for Luxury Car.
"The ideal vehicle awards measure how well a vehicle meets the desires of its buyers," said Dan Hall, Vice President at AutoPacific. "This award shows that Genesis understands their buyers and has developed a car that is ideal for them."
As the first Genesis model in the highly competitive entry-luxury sedan segment, G70 outperforms legacy luxury sport sedans with driver-focused performance. Thus far in 2019, 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, body strength, refined luxury and aerodynamic design. Pricing starts at $34,900.
