The 2020 Genesis G70 and Cadillac CT4 have so much in common—like luxurious interiors, cutting-edge tech features, and smooth, powerful rides—that it can be tough to know which is right for you. But our comparison guide takes a close look at each luxury sedan, supplying all the info you need to make an excellent decision.
OUTSTANDING LUXURY: IT’S A TIE!
For premium comfort, you can’t go wrong with either the 2020 Genesis G70 or the Cadillac CT4. Both full-size luxury sedans deliver a long list of niceties, including supple leather upholstery and premium audio options. And, no matter which model you select, you’ll enjoy excellent support and generous passenger space throughout the cabin. Moreover, both sedans are home to cutting-edge infotainment features that link to your smartphone via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology.
SPEEDY PERFORMANCE: 2020 GENESIS G70
If you’re looking for a luxury sedan that’s as quick as it is stylish, the G70 will do nicely. Both of its available engines serve up a speedy performance. The standard G70 engine, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, contributes 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque to your daily drive. For an even livelier experience, check out the optional turbo 3.3-liter V6, which speeds up your performance with 365 horses and 376 pound-feet of torque.
The 2020 Cadillac CT4 also offers two engines. Its base turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine makes 237 horses and 258 pound-feet of torque. It’s fast, though not as fast as the G70’s base engine. The CT4 also offers two versions of its optional 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine. One makes 309 horses/348 pound-feet of torque, while the other boosts output to 325 horses/380 pound-feet of torque.
ADVANCED SAFETY: 2020 GENESIS G70
The G70 comes standard with the safety features shoppers expect to see in a luxury sedan, including adaptive cruise control and blind-spot warning. Unfortunately, the 2020 Cadillac CT4 doesn’t come standard with any high-tech safety aids.
Both luxury sedans do, however, provide a wealth of innovative safety systems. For example, the CT4 offers an optional rearview mirror that displays a video feed of the car’s rear surroundings. And the G70 can be had with a surround-view monitor that puts a relaxing spin on parallel parking maneuvers.
EXTRA PEACE OF MIND: 2020 GENESIS G70
Any way you look at it, the Genesis G70 offers longer-lasting warranty coverage than the Cadillac CT4, something to consider if you plan on hanging on to your luxury sedan for quite a few years.
For starters, the Genesis bumper-to-bumper coverage helps you solve issues that crop up for 5 years or 60,000 miles. Bumper-to-bumper coverage for Cadillac models lasts only 4 years or 50,000 miles.
The Genesis’s powertrain warranty coverage offers even greater peace of mind, lasting 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. For Cadillacs, powertrain coverage expires after 6 years or 70,000 miles.
While both the 2020 Genesis G70 and Cadillac CT4 treat you to a high-end, family-friendly ride, it’s the Genesis that gives you a little extra oomph. That is, it’s more powerful, more dependable, and comes standard with more safety features.
