Genesis G70 review - interior and tech

The G70's interior is pleasant enough, but low-res screens and hollow plastics let it down

Evo rating
  • Striking design; interior quality and materials
  • Powertrains lacking; damping struggles with British roads; thirsty

From a user perspective, the G70’s interior reveals the model’s relative age, as it’s fundamentally the same as when it debuted in 2017. Still, the fundamentals are sound, and while it might lack the glamour of other Genesis models, it’s well built and easy to use.

Most functions are controlled through the generous touchscreen interface, which is neither the most intuitive nor irritating to use in the class. Physical air conditioning controls remain, and while a little clunky to look at, do the job just fine. There is a certain hollow feeling to most of the interior plastics, though, and while the optional Nappa leather trim is very nice, and the materials wrapping the dash and door cards look slick, it isn’t quite as solid as a BMW 3-series interior.

There is some superfluousness to the interior – the 3D dial pack is at first striking, but quickly becomes a little annoying thanks to the relatively low resolution of the screen itself. But it’s not as chintzy as a modern Mercedes offering, and there’s not a whole lot of content to wade through just to complete simple tasks. As un-evo as it might sound, a final note must be left with regard to interior space, which is to say there isn’t much, especially in the rear.
