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.

We’re yet to try the 2.2-litre diesel engine but the extra torque and a respectable 0-62mph sprint of 7.4 seconds (according to Genesis) should mean that it’s handy enough for most manoeuvres that you can throw at it. We suspect that the boosted economy figures may make this engine the pick for company car drivers.
