2020 Genesis G70: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Automotive Editor - January 07, 2019

Model Preview

In just its second year on showroom floors, we expect the 2020 Genesis G70 to roll into dealerships as a carryover model.

As a carryover model, we expect no visual changes to the 2020 Genesis G70. We anticipate it to carry on with its Kia Stinger-based platform and styling with the distinct Genesis front and rear fascias. We also expect no changes inside the G70. This means it would continue with its upscale, Stinger-based cabin. The Genesis G70 will set itself apart from its donor Kia with more upscale features like quilted seating, stainless-steel speaker grilles, brushed-aluminum surfaces, premium upholstery, and much more.

With nothing changing visually, we also expect the G70’s standard features to remain the same. If this proves true, the base 2.0T Advanced trim will include LED daytime running lights, heated mirrors, 18-inch wheels, 12-way power driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and tons more.

The powertrain is another area where we expect no changes. We anticipate the G70 will continue with its base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that cranks out 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Optionally, buyers can add a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 engine that ups the output to 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission, but an optional six-speed manual is available with the 2.0-liter engine. Rear-wheel drive will be standard, but all-wheel drive will be an option.

2019 Geneis G70

The current Genesis G70 is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, and we expect this to remain in the 2020 G70. It will continue to come standard with loads of advanced standard safety tech like automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, and more.

Pricing & Release Date

While there is still no official release date, we expect the 2020 Genesis G70 to start production in May 2019.

Pricing remains unconfirmed, but with no changes coming, we expect only a small price increase relative to the current G70’s MSRP range of $35,895 to $53,245 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Genesis G70 will battle the BMW 3-Series, Audi A4, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
