• Touchscreen infotainment found in the Genesis G70
  • Ten-speed automatic transmission for smoother shifts in the Acura TLX

These two sports sedans provide driving fun for parents who’ve just dropped the kids off at school and want to head out for a bit of pavement fun before heading back to the workday that awaits them.

Which 2022 sports sedan has a better interior area?

Acura TLX vs Genesis G70 | CarScoops

Acura TLX

The Acura TLX offers a flashy cockpit filled with knobs, switches, colors, and textures. Some of these items make sense, while others are there to increase the “wow factor” and make you smile. The drive mode selector is a large silver knob that your eyes are drawn to when entering the car.

You’ll find plenty of legroom for you and your front-seat passenger in the TLX, but your rear passengers will complain about the 34.9 inches of leg space if they are adult-sized. The trunk of this Acura is sizeable at 13.5 cubic feet, giving you a great place to take items with you when it’s time to head to the golf course or bring the brass instrument to your child for their school band practice.

Genesis G70

Luxury car qualities stand out in the Genesis G70, giving you a more conservative appearance than the TLX. You’ll see a logical arrangement of controls and features with fewer buttons and knobs than the Acura. This means there are more controls in the infotainment system for the G70, which could be something you like or possibly don’t enjoy.

If you think the rear seat of the TLX is tight, the G70 is a little tighter, with only 34.8 inches of legroom for passengers. The front is spacious and comfortable, giving you quilted Nappa leather at the 3.3T trim level. The trunk of the Genesis measures 10.5 cubic feet, which gives up a lot of space to the Acura.

Does the Acura TLX Type S or Genesis G70 3.3T offer better tech and safety?

2021 Acura TLX Type-S | Acura

Acura TLX

You’ll find the array of items you expect when you step inside the Acura TLX Type S. Tech features found in this car are:

  • 10.25-HD infotainment screen
  • Head-up display
  • Wireless cell phone charging
  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
  • ELS Studio 3D Premium Audio system (17 speaker layout)

On the safety side of things, you’ll have AcuraWatch, which includes:

  • Collision mitigation braking
  • Advanced pedestrian detection
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Low-speed follow
  • Lane-keeping assist

Genesis G70

The tech items found in the Genesis G70 3.3T are generous, giving you what you expect out of the luxury arm of the Hyundai family. Some of these items are:

  • 10.25-inch touchscreen display
  • Head-up display
  • Wireless phone charging
  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
  • Lexicon Premium Audio system (15 speaker layout)

The biggest difference in technology between these two cars is the use of touchscreen technology for the G70, while the TLX has a rotary dial controller for the menus.

The safety package for the Genesis G70 includes:

  • Forward collision avoidance assist
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Blind-spot view monitor
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Adaptive cruise control

Should you drive the Genesis G70 or Acura TLX?

Both cars give you specific benefits to appeal to your driving desires. The Acura TLX Type S offers more gears in the transmission, more buttons and knobs, and a larger cabin area. Looking at the Genesis G70 3.3T, you’ll have the touchscreen system, more power from the engine, and a stronger sense of luxury in the cabin. As you can see, these two cars appeal to different types of drivers. The question you have to answer is, “which car appeals to you?”
