Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The Genesis G70 Shooting Brake makes it easy to find a good driving position because even the entry-level Premium Line trim gives you an electrically adjustable seat.

Unlike in the BMW 3 Series Touring, you get lumbar adjustment to help you stay comfortable on a long drive. However, you might want to consider adding the Comfort Seat Pack, which lets you adjust the side bolsters, thigh support and steering wheel electrically, and save your preferred settings.

The dashboard is quite logically laid out and has lots of physical controls, unlike in the A4 and Mercedes C-Class Estate (they put almost everything on screens). That might make the G70 look a bit old-fashioned inside, but it also means that it's far less distracting to adjust the climate control.

That’s not to say that Genesis is stingy with tech. You get a 10.25in landscape-oriented touchscreen with built-in sat-nav, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring. The screen isn't as easy to operate on the move as the iDrive system in the 3 Series. For example, it has quite small icons and does without a separate control dial, although mercifully you do get some proper shortcut buttons for swapping between menus.

The quality of the interior materials is good, and everything feels solidly put together, although the A4 still sets the standard. One word of caution: all the G70s we’ve driven have had the pricey Nappa option with fine-grain leather and a classy suede headliner, and cars without it might not feel as plush.
