Pricing for the hotly anticipated 2019 Genesis G70 has been announced, and the most affordable Advanced trim with the 252-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive costs $35,895 (all prices include the $995 destination charge). Unsurprisingly, the G70 is priced accordingly against its German rivals.

Trim levels for the G70 2.0T include the Advanced, Elite, Dynamic, Prestige, Sport, and Sport M/T. The Sport M/T is the most athletic model in the 2.0T lineup, as it comes with a six-speed manual transmission, a sport exhaust system, Brembo brakes, and alloy pedals, for a starting price of $38,895.

The Elite 2.0T trim is an extra $5,000 over the base Advanced model with a starting price of $40,895. It'll cost you another $4,000 over that to get into the Dynamic, which blends luxury and sporty features at a starting price of $44,895.

Pricing for the Prestige trim, which is only offered with all-wheel drive, starts at $45,895. That's also the same price for the Sport trim. If you want all-wheel drive with your G70, that costs an extra $2,000. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-pot can be paired to either a six-speed manual transmission, which is exclusive to the Sport M/T trim, or an eight-speed automatic.

If 245 hp doesn't sound like enough, there's the available 365-hp, twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 that powers the G70 3.3T models. The V6 is only available with the eight-speed automatic transmission. There are four available trims for the 3.3T: Advanced, Elite, Prestige, and Sport.

The most affordable way to get the 3.3-liter V6 twin-turbo is with the Advanced trim that starts at $44,745. The Elite trim is the next step up and is $1,750 more than the entry-level trim with a price of $46,495. Pricing for the Prestige trim starts at $48,995, while the range-topping Sport is priced at $50,495. Once again, all-wheel drive is an extra $2,000 for the 3.3T trims.

At the time of launch, Genesis is also offering a few limited edition models of the G70, which are called the Design Special Edition and Dynamic Special Edition. Genesis plans to build 400 units of each. Pricing of the Design starts at $49,745, while the Dynamic costs $51,245. Both are available in rear- or all-wheel drive – the latter costing $2,000 more.

Genesis has priced its G70 competitively, as it's more affordable than the Audi A4, which starts at $36,975, and the Mercedes-Benz C 300 that's priced at $41,245. Interestingly, the G70 has the same starting price tag as the BMW 320i sedan ($35,895). The 320i, though, comes with a 180-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four. Moving up to the 248-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine in the 330i costs $41,245, which may have a similar amount of power as the G70, but is $5,350 more.
