Genesis G70 vs. BMW 3-Series Comparison

GENESIS G70 VS BMW 3-SERIES - HOW DO THEY COMPARE?

Genesis G70

BMW 3-Series


There is a new serious player in the near-luxury sports sedan class and Genesis of North Kingstown is proud to make its case. The new Genesis G70 is making the old-guard luxury car makers stand up and notice. BMW 3-Series shoppers now have an alternative that gives them exceptional value without sacrificing quality and features.

From concept to completion, the designers of the Genesis G70 had a clear vision of sporty sophistication, beginning with its distinct grill and headlight facing back to its sleek, agressive profile. The G70's interior echoes the same attention to detail, carrying through distinctive design cues that make it unique among a class that often plays things safe. To illustrate, US News described the BMW 3-Series as a "handsome" car with an interior design reminiscent of "understated European elegance." Nice, but underwhelming.

Sport sedan drivers expect their vehicles to deliver outstanding performance and the Genesis G70 delivers more than BMW, especially when considering the higher-end models. The G70 3.3T 3.3 turbo V6 generates 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft torque compared to the BMW 340i Gran Turismo 3.0 turbo 6 cylinder with its 320 horsepower and 330 lb-ft torque - a marked difference that discerning drivers will find more than noticeable. In the area of maneuverability, the G70 exhibits nimbleness with a 36.1 foot turning circle compared to BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo's 40.4 foot radius.
