The 2021 Genesis G70 is a relative newcomer to its segment, but it’s already making an impression. It offers a powerful engine, plenty of interior space, and the latest safety features. That’s why all of us at Genesis of Kearny Mesa are confident that it can stand up to other models in its class, including the 2021 BMW 3 Series. Let’s see how they compare. 

The Price

The 2021 Genesis G70 is a lot of car for the money. It starts at a lower price than many of its competitors, but still offers comparable performance and similar features. 

This new Genesis model starts at an MSRP of $37,025, while the 2021 BMW 3 Series starts at $41,755. 

Interior Space

The 2021 Genesis G70 offers plenty of room to stretch out, so taller drivers and front row passengers might appreciate this luxury car a little more. It offers 39.7 inches of headroom, 42.6 inches of legroom, and 56.3 inches of shoulder room in the front row. 

Compare that to the 2021 BMW 3 Series, which offers 38.7 inches of headroom, 42 inches of legroom, and 56 inches of shoulder room. 


Many cars in this class offer plenty of cutting-edge safety features, but we think that the 2021 Genesis G70 has an edge on the 2021 BMW 3 Series. That’s because you can find more standard safety features on the 2021 Genesis G70, while some features on the BMW model are locked behind trim level upgrades or options packages.
