If you’re after an executive car that’s slightly different to the usual suspects, then the Genesis G70’s comfortable interior and high levels of standard equipment make it a tempting choice. It is, however, overshadowed by established rivals like the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series, which offer better practicality, more dynamic driving and better economy. Company car users will want to look elsewhere, as rival executive cars with plug-in hybrid technology are far less costly for benefit-in-kind tax.

Top-tier Sport Line trim takes the G70 a step further by adding Nappa leather sports seats, 19in alloy wheels, heated seats and Brembo brakes. Due to the cost, however, we find that the Sport Line trim is hard to recommend.
The engineSee full engine specs
Offering 241bhp, the most powerful of the petrol engines will get the G70 from 0-62mph in 6.1 seconds. While official figures have to be taken with a pinch of salt, we can believe that it’s capable of that sprint. The engine is responsive from low revs, making pulling off a doddle and, when you’re on the move, the G70 will easily get up to motorway speeds and there’s a good amount of shove on offer whenever you need to complete an overtaking manoeuvre.
