In our short history, we’ve won the praise of the automotive media and the industry’s most prestigious awards. A genuine honor. And reflection of Genesis’ driver-first approach to our vehicles and ownership experience.
For the second straight year, Genesis placed first in the J.D. Power* U.S. Initial Quality Study amongst all auto brands. A great honor and a tribute to our commitment to make Genesis owners’ needs our priority.
An industry benchmark, the AutoPacific®* 2018 VSAs are based on survey responses from over 58,000 owners. In just our second year in the market, Genesis won top luxury brand, achieving the highest brand satisfaction score to date. AutoPacific President George Peterson stated, "In just two years, Genesis has reached a level of owner satisfaction unattained by more established luxury brands."
In its very first year, the Genesis G70 ranked #1 in its class in two J.D. Power* 2019 Quality Studies for the U.S.—Initial Quality, and Multimedia Quality and Satisfaction. Most impressive, both studied the experiences of new vehicle owners—with their own vehicle after 90 days of ownership—and ACEN system.
We’re honored to be 2019 North American Car of the Year™. One of the most highly regarded accolades in the auto industry, this competition awards excellence in innovation, design, safety, performance, technology, driver satisfaction and value. A panel of 47 independent automotive experts chose the G70 for this distinction from among dozens of new or substantially changed 2019 models.
AutoPacific's Ideal Vehicle Award measures the fusion between expectation and reality. The 2019 Genesis G70 was recognized as the top aspirational luxury car with buyers who are driving their "ideal" vehicle. Regarding the award, AutoPacific* stated, “Owners don’t want them bigger, smaller, faster or more fuel efficient. This shows that planners, designers and engineers understand buyers and have provided a product closely targeted to their needs and desires.”
Confirming that Genesis has gone above and beyond, bringing its A game for 2019, the Genesis G70 has been crowned the 2019 AutoGuide.com Car of the Year. Editor-in-chief Jodi Lai said, “Our editors* were unanimously impressed by the Genesis G70 — it’s an overall excellent package that was smartly designed, cleverly engineered and fairly priced.”
Cars.com editors named the Genesis G70 their top vehicle for 2019. The accolade reflects quality, innovation and value. Stating, “This is as standout a choice as we've had in years,” Cars.com* added, “the G70 boasts excellent steering and good enough dynamics to hang with the best luxury sports sedans on the market.”
The 2019 Genesis G70 is the recipient of the Roadshow by CNET* Shift Award for "Vehicle of the Year" for its superior driving dynamics and intuitive technology. Calling the G70 “a winner across the board," Executive Editor Chris Paukert added "this isn't a model you buy just because you're trying to save money over rivals. You buy the G70 because it's the better driving car."
The 2019 Genesis G70 has been named a 2018 GOOD DESIGN®* Award winner. The program was established to create awareness about contemporary design, honoring both products and industry leaders in design and manufacturing that have chartered new directions for innovation. Genesis joins leading transportation, electronic, consumer and lifestyle product brands in receiving this honor.
Defined by athletic styling, exhilarating performance, spacious interior, plus our most advanced technology and safety features, the G80 has been lauded as everything a midsize luxury sedan should be.
For more than 30 years, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has set the standard for automotive safety, making it easier for drivers to choose safer vehicles. Genesis shares this commitment to safety first and that has resulted in the NHTSA* bestowing its highest rating on the 2020 G80.
IIHS tests are based on two essential criteria: how well a vehicle protects its occupants in the unfortunate event of a crash, and technology that can prevent a crash or lessen its severity. So, we are pleased that the 2019 G80 excels in these areas and has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick+* when equipped with optional LED headlights.
Our flagship, full-size sedan is the utmost expression of refined luxury. Its immediate and enthusiastic recognition, including the highest score ever in AutoPacific’s 2017 survey, may have caught some by surprise, but clearly not G90 owners.

The Genesis G90 received top billing for the second consecutive year, being named AutoPacific®* Best In Class Vehicle Satisfaction Luxury Car. An industry benchmark, the Vehicle Satisfaction Awards identify the most satisfying vehicles on the market, measuring owner’s satisfaction with their new vehicles.
