Each TRD variant receives thicker underbody braces to increase torsional rigidity, and each has front brakes with 12.9-inch-diameter rotors, compared with the 12-inch rotors that are standard in the Camry and Avalon XSE trims. The TRD models are 0.6 of an inch lower and have specially tuned shock absorbers for more responsive handling. Wider, low-profile performance tires on lightweight matte-black alloy wheels are part of the mix, too.

If you could have only one automotive feature, this should be it. At Wheelbase Communications, we’ve chosen to stay away from providing an automotive-news column until we could do it in a non-traditional way. And here it is: the Auto Sleuth. Our worldly gumshoe has his ear to the ground, digging up the latest news on everything from product launches and updates to names in the news. The column is solely driven by reader interest. No boring statistics or auto-company pap here, just the straight goods peppered with the Auto Sleuth’s commentary and speculative, gossipy-style.

2019 Genesis G70</br>September 24, 2018

The interior strikes the correct balance between luxury and practicality. The driver-centric stitched-leather-covered dashboard comes with a trio of large dials for operating the various heating/cooling functions, and the eight-inch tablet-like touchscreen doesn’t look like an afterthought.  The G70’s platform is based on the Kia Stinger hatchback (Kia is owned by Hyundai), but the G70 has been shortened by about three inches between the front and rear wheels.
