Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Genesis G70 is an all-new compact luxury sport sedan with a fun-to-drive character for a bargain price. Genesis is a new face in the luxury car game, but we've been largely impressed with the brand's other vehicles for offering a lot of value for money. The G70 is no exception, with a capable 2.0T entry-level trim and exciting 3.3T model.

Pros
Sporty, fun-to-drive character
Some excellent upscale design touches
Excellent warranty coverage
Lots of features and tech for the price

Cons
Manual transmission isn't as engaging as it could be
Some cabin materials are subpar for the class
Infotainment screen out of a Hyundai
Cramped back seat

The 2019 Genesis G70 is a performance bargain that improves upon the dynamics of ts Kia Stinger cousin but lacks its space.

Pros
Potent V-6
Optional 6-speed manual
Exceptional on-road dynamics
Exceptional warranty
Aggressive looks...

Cons
...but are they over the top?
Smaller than Kia Stinger cousin
Firm ride
Not particularly fuel-efficient

By:

The G70 is the first real sports sedan from Hyundai's luxury Genesis brand, and it's quite good for a first attempt. Using a rear-wheel-drive setup shared with the Kia Stinger, the G70 is aimed squarely at the legendary BMW 3-series.

Pros
Looks like a sports sedan and acts like one, too;
power flows freely;
interior design executed right;
settles down when asked.

Cons
Unnecessary brake-based handling “aid,” short on rear-seat legroom.

The 2019 Cadillac XTS delivers on Cadillac's traditional strengths with a smooth ride, quiet cabin, a big back seat and classy styling. It's a smart pick if you want a luxury sedan without the sporty pretenses of Cadillac's sportier sedans, such as a stiffer ride.

Pros
Spacious interior has high-quality materials throughout
Offers plenty of standard features
Optional turbo V6 engine provides strong power
Seats are eminently comfortable

Cons
Driver aids remain exclusive to upper trims
Touch-sensitive controls can be a hassle while on the move
Trunk opening is surprisingly narrow for a car of this size
Standard V6 struggles to get this big car moving

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2019 Cadillac XTS feels purpose-built as an executive chauffeur’s chariot but provides a comfortable and pleasant ride from any seat.

Pros
Plenty of space, front and rear
Strong performance, especially in V-Sport trims
Solid, comfortable ride
Refined, high-end materials throughout, even in base models

Cons
Most safety features and driver aids are optional
Options and trim upgrades drive the price up—fast
Capacitive buttons sometimes confusing to use
