The compact Genesis G70 sedan is the brand’s BMW 3 Series fighter. It’s fun through the curves and protects its occupants admirably in the IIHS’s crash tests. It gets the Top Safety Pick+ designation with either of two Good-rated LED projector-style headlight sets. One that’s both curve adaptive and has an auto high-beam feature is available as part of the Prestige, Dynamic, or Sport packages on 2.0T or 3.3T models equipped with an automatic transmission.
The other lighting system, which is not curve adaptive, is available on the 2.0T with a manual transmission, or the automatic-equipped 3.3T and 2.0T, with the latter requiring the Elite package. The standard headlights on the 2.0T with the automatic transmission are deemed Poor. However, the G70’s Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection system is rated Superior.
