The Genesis G70 was named the Best Small Premium Car in Canada for 2022 by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC).
The voting members of AJAC praised the redesigned 2022 Genesis G70 for its powertrain performance, vehicle dynamics, and overall value. This is the second year in a row that a Genesis car has had a category win from AJAC.
“The Genesis G70 sport sedan received a long list of enhancements as part of a mid-cycle refresh, and we’re grateful to AJAC and its voting members for taking note of all of them, namely as it concerns the comprehensive design update and refined performance,” says Lawrence Hamilton, Executive Director of Genesis Motors Canada. “The Genesis G70 has a number of accolades from around the world, and we’re thrilled to add a notable Canadian award to that list and share this with our customers and distributors.”
Winners in AJAC’s 13 vehicle categories are selected by more than 50 Canadian automotive journalists who tested over 250 vehicles last year. Their in-depth evaluations are conducted under various road and weather conditions across Canada, needed to evaluate according to the 20 voting parameters set by AJAC, some of which include: exterior styling; cargo versatility; convenience and entertainment features; noise vibration and harshness; engine; transmission; overall consumer appeal, and market significance.
The Genesis G70 is in the running for “2022 Canadian Vehicle of the Year.” The winner will be announced by AJAC in the coming weeks.
