The 2019 Genesis G70 is a compact luxury sedan meant to compete with three long-standing German compacts -- the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Based on the pictures, Genesis did well adapting the G80's style to a smaller form.

When it launches in South Korea this year, the G70 will come with one of three engines -- a 2.0-liter gas I4 with 248 horsepower, a 2.2-liter diesel I4 with 199 horsepower and a 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 with 365 horsepower.

The latter will be used in the G70 Sport trim, which is meant for outright performance, with a 0-60 time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed around 168 mph.

The G70 Sport has standard variable-ratio steering that can change steering feel based on the driver's preference, as well as an adaptive suspension system.

Its 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system includes both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Music geeks will probably opt for the 15-speaker Lexicon sound system.

The Genesis Active Safety Control suite includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.

Its hood will also lift up to absorb the shock of contacting a pedestrian, in the hopes that it will limit the hurt headed that person's way.

While the Genesis G70 goes on sale this month in South Korea, we won't know more North American-specific information on the car until early 2018.
