The idea entered my head during a quick trip to the Miami Auto Show back in late 2018, when I saw the Genesis G70 in the flesh for the first time. It was in a striking shade of blue, and I believe it was one of the rare Prestige/Advanced/Sport trims that stickered for about $54k. It was, without doubt, the best looking car at the show. I sat in the front seat and instantly loved it. The quilted interior was delightful, the aluminum trim was sublime, and the Lexicon audio was downright symphonic.
I then sat in the back seat and instantly hated it.
“The back seat is way too small,” I complained to the Genesis booth worker.
“Then get the G80!” he replied with a smile.
“Yeah, not the same, dude.”
“I know,” he moaned, in a very Eeyore style of voice.
