Unchanged from last year, the 2019 Genesis G90 sits atop the brand’s lineup, offering luxury buyers a sumptuous interior, cosseting ride, and an abundance of standard features. But it continues to disappoint with an innocuous design, a V-8 that doesn’t reward the extra shekels, and a wing medallion that still lacks the prestige of the roundel and three-pointed star.
All 2019 Toyota Corolla models are sensible, economical, and offer a host of advanced safety systems. At the same time, most are boring to drive and, until recently, offered all the allure and design panache of a large appliance. However, if you’re in the market for a new compact car and simply must have a Toyota, the latest hatchback is the one to get.
All-new last year, the 2019 Lexus LS 500, the brand’s flagship sedan, impresses with a sinewy shape, sybaritic interior, and serene ride, but falls short of perfection with unimpressive piped-in engine sounds, numb steering, and an improved – but still irritating – touchpad interface.
The 2019 Genesis G70 3.3T is a performance bargain that offers dashing good looks, a potent V-6, and exceptional dynamics that, despite tight rear seating, a smallish trunk, and middling fuel economy, is a worthy competitor to compact sports sedans from Germany, Japan, and the US.
