The 2021 Genesis G70 is one of the most impressive luxury vehicles of the year. The Genesis takes the #3 spot among small luxury sedans. Although it belongs to the luxury class of vehicles, it also has sporty handling and performance characteristics on the road that make it a fun car to drive. Additionally, the Genesis G70 at Genesis of Brunswick has a stylish and head-turning exterior. There are some minor updates to features and amenities at each trim level of the Genesis this year. The Genesis G70 competes with several other cars in the luxury sedan class, including the 2021 Acura TLX. However, the Genesis is more comfortable than the Acura, and it offers a more thrilling driving experience.

Performance and Handling

When you take the Genesis G70 at Genesis of Brunswick for a spin, you’ll get a feel for its strong engine and quick acceleration. The Genesis G70 comes in two trim levels, and each trim has its own engine. The base engine for the Genesis is a turbo 2.0L engine that has four cylinders. The base engine has a maximum power output of 252 HP, and its peak torque output reaches 260 LB-FT. Next, with the 3.3T trim, comes a more powerful engine with a 3.3L displacement and six cylinders. This engine cranks out 365 HP and 376 LB-FT in torque. You will get a manual transmission with the base engine and an automatic with the second. The Genesis has a standard rear-wheel drive drivetrain, but all-wheel drive is optional. The Acura TLX also has two engines, but its power output does not reach what you’ll get with the Genesis G70. At most, the Acura’s power output tops out at 355 HP, and its maximum torque is less than the G70’s at 354 LB-FT.


The Genesis G70 is known for its exceptional interior, which you can try out during your online test drive at our dealership. The G70 has large seats and premium materials throughout its cabin. The G70 has many desirable amenities to begin with, including simulated leather upholstery, an eight-inch touchscreen interface, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. It also has a hands-free opener for the trunk and heated front seats. An abundance of safety aids are standard, including blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, forward collision avoidance, and adaptive cruise control. The top 3.3T trim has a performance-oriented cabin. The Acura TLX has less legroom and headroom for its occupants in both rows. Its seats are not as comfortable as the G70’s, and you won’t get the same authentic sporty characteristics. The Acura’s materials are not as high-end as the G70’s, which gives the Genesis a more luxurious feel.

Style and Design

Impressive styling is a highlight of the 2021 Genesis G70, which is equipped with LED lights and 18-inch alloy wheels. Special sporty 19-inch wheels come with the top trim level. The Genesis exudes luxury with chrome touches for appearance, while rain-sensing wipers give its exterior a practical and safe design. Brembo brakes are added to the top trims, which are not available on the Acura TLX. Additionally, only one set of wheels is available on the Acura, which provides fewer choices for a custom finish.
