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.

Tesla has made the Model 3 a better value for 2019 by dropping the price on all three of the variants listed below by $2000. The Model 3 Performance also now comes standard with the the previously optional Performance Upgrade package, which includes 20-inch wheels with summer tires, upgraded brakes, a carbon-fiber spoiler, aluminum pedal trim, a lowered suspension, and a 10-mph increase in top speed (to 155 mph).

Pros
Quick acceleration and nimble handling,
real-world-usable driving range,
lots of future-is-now technology.

Cons
More affordable variant may never arrive,
driving range doesn't hold up on the highway,
stark interior layout.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Pros
Explosive acceleration at any speed
Class leading in-car technology and driver assistance systems
Easy to drive with established charging infrastructure availability

Cons
Charging infrastructure in Australia lags behind the USA
Some build quality issues
Handling not quite as sharp as we expected

By:

A less expensive battery pack is expected to debut later in the year. Aside from a few ergonomic issues, the 2019 Tesla Model 3 is one of the best electric vehicles on sale today.

Pros
Tesla prestige at a lower price
Class-leading performance and handling
More technologically advanced than rivals
Supercharger network access for long-distance driving

Cons
Touchscreen interface design can lead to driver distraction
No Android Auto or Apple CarPlay support
Limited cargo capacity and interior storage
