Overall Value & Awards: 2019 Genesis G70 vs 2019 Audi A4

The MotorTrend Car of the Year is one of the most highly-coveted awards in the industry! This award represents an independent body labeling the best and brightest vehicle in each segment. Every vehicle is evaluated on six different criteria: advancement in design, safety, value, efficiency, performance, and engineering excellence. And the 2019 Genesis G70 was named the 2019 North American Car of the Year for exceeding expectations, which isn't something the A4 can say!  

Performance: 2019 Audi A4 vs 2019 Genesis G70

The 2019 Audi A4 is notorious for impressive performance. You can choose between two different engines: A 2.0L turbo four-cylinder that pumps out 188 HP or A 2.0L Quattro 4 cylinder that produces up to 248 HP. 

While these numbers are impressive, they pale in comparison to the performance of the 2019 Genesis G70. The standard turbocharged 2.0L GDI four-cylinder engine produces an exceptional 252 HP; the available 3.3L twin-turbo GDI V6 delivers a bludgeoning 365 HP. 

In other words, you'll enjoy more standard power in the Genesis G70 than what's available on the Audi A4. Best of all, the 3.3L G70 blazes from 0 to 60 in a breathtaking 4.5 seconds; while the Audi lumbers behind at 5.6 seconds. 

Vehicle Reliability: 2019 Genesis G70 vs 2019 Audi A4

The 2019 Genesis G70 is #1 Ranked Compact Premium Car in Initial Quality by J.D. Power 2019 U.S. Initial Quality Study, which speaks volumes about its reliability. On the other hand, the Audi brand is ranked 25th on this list, which is well below the industry average. Specifically, Audi vehicles have an average of 37 more problems per 100 vehicles. 

In the end, the reliability of the Genesis comes down to the details. For instance, the G70 comes with a massive standard 800-amp battery that is responsible for handling large electrical loads and starting in virtually any condition, The Audi A4 comes with a standard 420-amp battery. 

Special Utility Features: 2019 Genesis G70 vs 2019 Audi A4

The Genesis G70 boasts a range of comfort and convenience features that are either not standard or are not available on the 2019 A4. For starters, the Genesis G70 offers a standard remote vehicle starting system, hands-free trunk, and an available panoramic roof - neither of these features are available on the Audi A4. 

At the same time, the Genesis G70 comes loaded with standard advanced safety features, such as cross traffic alert, lane keep assist, and blind spot monitor. The Audi offers many of these features as available options, which means you'll have to dig deeper into your pockets.
