NWAPA Run to the Sun: Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Wins Most Fun Sports Sedan

Honestly, I’m not one of those people who thinks a car needs crazy horsepower to be fun to drive. In fact, I’m a huge proponent of cars — think Mazda Miata, Subaru BRZ, FIAT 124 Spyder — which marry more modest output with great driving dynamics. To paraphrase Top Gun, you really don’t need to be going Mach 2 with your hair on fire to have a good time. But you know what’s also fun? Going Mach 2 with your hair on fire, in a car with crazy horsepower. And…

Genesis G70 vs Lexus ES: Featured Genesis Test Drive Reviews 

Powerful, Composed, Luxury: 2019 Genesis G70 Test Drive Review

Would you buy a Genesis over an Acura, Infiniti, or Lexus? The new Genesis G70 joins the G80 and G90 in the brand’s lineup and competes with the likes of the Audi A4, BMW 3-Series, Lexus IS, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. What’s interesting is that the Hyundai-owned luxury brand is striving to become a serious luxury contender with a sedan-only lineup, when luxury automakers and shoppers are more interested in crossovers and SUVs. Nonetheless, after spending a week with the Genesis G70, I have to say that this sedan proves that…

BM-Double Who?: 2019 Genesis G70 Sport Test Drive Review

The BMW 3 Series has long been regarded as the pinnacle of performance and handling among compact luxury sedans, and despite having a huge target painted on its rear bumper, few cars have come close to delivering this car’s high level of driving pleasure. There’s no denying how much the 3 Series changed the performance luxury landscape over the last 40+ years, but as modern sport sedans get bigger, heavier and softer, the all-new 2019 Genesis G70 looks to be the next game changer of this segment with a refreshing…

Bring on the Competition: 2018 Genesis G80 Test Drive

In the luxury automotive world, “base model” is a relative term, and it’s not something we get to test often. Usually, our test vehicles are equipped with a lot of the popular equipment and the most performance-oriented engine options. That was the case with the $56,000 Genesis G80 Sport we tested back in February. Following J.D. Power’s recent ranking of Genesis as the top automaker in the U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study, we wanted to see what a base G80 had to offer. For that, we hopped…

Power Move: Genesis Tops 2018 J.D. Power Study

What a difference a year makes. The 2018 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study has been released, and one thing is clear — Hyundai is on a tear. Last year, the Korean automaker was eighth on the list, but this year, its Genesis luxury line shot to the top, knocking off venerable regulars like Lexus and Porsche. What’s even bigger news is that Hyundai basically owns the top three spots, as KIA (which it owns 30 percent of) is second, and Hyundai itself is third. Expect to see plenty of advertising pushing this…
