Genesis G70 Elite
It has been a good year for South Korea’s Genesis Motors, as its G70 was named Car of the Year by Motor Trend, North American Car of the Year by NACTOY, as well as the best car of 2019 by the Canadian Automotive Jury. The compact luxury sports sedan, which shares a platform with the fastback Kia Stinger, beat out the competition in almost every category.
For just $42,000, you get a tech- and luxury-laden interior, as well as Genesis’ superior 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder making 252 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Bump that up to $47,000 to match the Model 3 and you’ve also earned yourself a navigation package. Because why not?
