This should be the most enthusiast-friendly G70, but it’s not.

What is the car’s mission, and how well does it execute it? It’s one of the most important questions we ask of a new vehicle. Genesis teed up its all-new G70 sedan to compete head-on with BMW’s 3-series, betting that loudly bogeying the German elephant in the entry-luxury space would confer legitimacy on its first true sports sedan.

So far, the Genesis G70 has done more than shoulder its way into the conversation on brazen shot calling alone. After testing the 365-hp, rear-drive 3.3T and sampling all the G70 variants, we named the entire lineup to our 2019 10Best Cars list. Overall, it’s a successful entry in a segment of which we’re particularly fond. The version reviewed here, the only G70 with a manual transmission, should be the one to grab driving enthusiasts by the clutch pedal, the one that truly validates the brand’s freshman sports-sedan effort.
