The verdict: The Genesis G70 compact sports sedan got a light refresh for 2022 with a fresh face and new multimedia system. In the backseat, the space is still roomier than it looks. Like in the model-year 2020 version we last tested, we fit two car seats with little trouble.
Take a look at how the Latch system and each car seat scored below in our Car Seat Check of the 2022 Genesis G70.
- Latch: The sedan’s two sets of anchors sit under hinged plastic covers; they’re easy to find and use. Three sets of top tether anchors sit on the rear shelf. They’re well marked and have plenty of clearance for easy connection.
- Forward-facing convertible: After raising the head restraint, this car seat fit well. Both the lower and upper anchor connections were easy.
- Booster: We removed the head restraint to situate the booster flush against the seatback. The outboard buckles are short but stable, which should make them easy for kids to grasp and use. The inside buckle is floppy, however.
- Infant: Installing this seat was easy. We moved the front passenger seat up a bit to get enough clearance, so legroom was a little cramped for our 5-foot-6-inch front passenger with the seat installed in back.
- Rear-facing convertible: Again, this seat installed easily, but it slightly compromised the front-passenger legroom.
A: Plenty of room for the car seat and the child; doesn’t impact driver or front-passenger legroom. Easy to find and connect to Latch and tether anchors. No fit issues involving head restraint or seat contouring. Easy access to the third row.
B: One room, fit or connection issue. Some problems accessing the third row when available.
C: Marginal room plus one fit or connection issue. Difficult to access the third row when available.
D: Insufficient room, plus multiple fit or connection issues.
F: Does not fit or is unsafe.
