Genesis G70 and Hyundai Kona win NACTOY awards

Korea's Hyundai dominated the car and SUV NACTOY awards for 2019.

The prestigious North American Car, Truck and Utility of the Year awards kicked off the Detroit Auto Show at Cobo Hall. Genesis, Hyundai's young luxury arm, won for car with its compact G70 sedan. Then the parent brand followed with SUV of the Year for the Hyundai Kona.

The Genesis G70 beat out the Honda Insight and Volvo S90. The Hyundai Kona compact SUV bested the Jaguar I-Pace and Acura RDX. It offers the same pair of engines that come with the sporty Hyundai Veloster sports coupe: a 143-horsepower, 2.0 liter 4-banger and a 175-horse, 193-torque, 1.6 liter turbo.
