Genesis G70

Audi A4

You demand automotive excellence from your sports sedan - the very best performance, exquisite styling, and advanced safety and technology features. The temptation to go with an established brand like Audi is strong, but first consider how the Genesis G70 stacks up. Genesis of North Kingstown makes the case for the superiority of the G70 against the reputable Audi A4.

There's no question the Audi name is a heavyweight in the sports sedan world, perenially earning top honors in the compact luxury sports sedan class, but what is exciting about the entry of the Genesis G70 into this class is its outstanding value. Genesis is hungry to earn the trust of this segment's drivers and is offering more for your car buying dollar.

Genesis has given the G70 all that it needs and more to go head-to-head with the Audi A4. Aggessive styling, robust performance, and abundant features all point to its advantage. Under the hood, the base model G70's 252-horsepower 2.0L Turbo has a clear advantage over the A4's 190-hp rating. The extra horses are sent to a standard-equipped 8-speed automatic transmission offering enhanced accelration and easier cruising than Audi's 7-speed automatic. The G70 generously supplies an 800-amp battery to power your cold-starts throughout the challenging New England winters, clearly besting the A4's 420-amps.

The G70 also offers an intangible that goes beyond pure numbers...peace of mind. Genesis backs the G70 with a 5 year/60,000 mile basic warranty and 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty, and then gives you a full three years (or 36,000 miles) of scheduled "door to door valet service" maintenance. In comparison, Audi only backs the A4 for 4 years/50,000 miles, and only covers your first scheduled maintenance visit. The advantage is clear. Check the specs below to see why the G70 is the right choice.
