Genesis G70

When you look good, you feel good. That’s why choosing a luxury sedan with ample curb appeal is essential to your self-care. Both the Genesis and the Lexus are breathtaking and alluring, making it easy to leave you satisfied and other drivers in awe.

Visual Harmony

The G70 and the IS have many commonalities, including this: They are the very essence of visual harmony. Size-wise, these models are nearly identical, which means they offer comparable interior and cargo space. Their wheelbases are almost the same length, letting drivers experience a smooth yet zippy ride.

However, the luxury sedan that helps you hold your head the highest is the Genesis G70. It sits atop 19-inch alloy wheels that raise the ride height and make you feel confident and in charge on the road. Although similar wheels are available on the Lexus, it makes 18-inch alloy wheels standard instead.

Hues That Inspire

The next sedan you drive will be a showstopper; the Genesis and the Lexus will make sure of that. Both models are available in classic and inspiring paint options; however, the G70 is available in 11 hues, while the IS is offered in seven paints. Despite this difference, they share several colors in common:

  • Uyuni White
  • Savile Silver
  • Makalu Gray
  • Havana Red
  • Mallorca Blue

If your version of me-time consists of enjoying the great outdoors to the fullest, you’ll love the four additional paints offered by Genesis. Will you make a splash in Capri Blue or Tasman Blue? Or will you ground yourself in the rich Hallasan Green? The choice is yours.

The purpose of self-care is to reset, recharge, and re-balance. The same can be said about the standard safety suites on the Genesis and the Lexus. These intelligent driver-assistance aids are constantly at work to make sure your peace of mind is never compromised.

Safety Starter Pack

Your self-care starter pack may include a true crime book, a weighted blanket, a day full of football games on TV, or a dinner with a friend. In the Genesis and the Lexus, your protection detail manifests as brand-specific versions of these driver-assistance features:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go
  • Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist

In the daytime, the headlights of these sedans dazzle drivers. At night, their standard High Beam Assist feature illuminates a clear path ahead. It works alongside exterior sensors that watch for other drivers and, when detected, will toggle off the high beams to avoid inconveniencing other drivers.

Prioritize Your Peace

It’s the Genesis G70 that really steps up to protect your peace. You’ll find even more standard safety features on this model that are not offered on the Lexus IS, including:

  • Highway Driving Assist
  • Driver Attention Warning
  • Rear Occupant Alert
  • Safe Exit Warning

While the Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 is a fully comprehensive suite and will ensure your security, the G70 goes above and beyond to prioritize you.

Sometimes connecting with others, listening to your favorite music, or starting a new audiobook are the best ways to grant yourself self-care on the go. The Genesis and the Lexus make doing so easy during pivotal moments.

Pairing Made Easy

So, your friend recommended a new memoir to check out, and your favorite artist just released a new album. What do you do? Well, you must decide which you’ll listen to first. The easy part is pairing your phone to the G70 or the IS with any of these smartphone integrations:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • Bluetooth®

These integrations make listening to your preferred entertainment easy, and they make the central display an extension of your phone!

Easy on the Eyes

Speaking of central displays, the Genesis and the Lexus offer impressive screens in the center dash. They function as your entertainment hub and as your navigation screen. So, does one model offer a bigger screen than the other?

  • Genesis G70: 10.25-inch screen
  • Lexus IS: 8-inch multimedia screen

The Genesis’ larger display will help reduce eye strain, which will come in handy after a long day at the office.
