The 2022 Genesis G70 receives a refresh with a new design, a more powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and a few extra tech features. In addition to these changes, the 2022 G70 arrives with a larger starting price tag. The base Standard trim is now priced at $38,570 (with destination), which represents an increase of $1,525 from last year. Getting all-wheel drive with the base four-cylinder engine and Standard trim now costs $40,670 or $1,625 more than before.

Interestingly, moving up to the available twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 engine brings prices down compared to last year. With rear-wheel drive, the 3.3T Standard trim costs $43,145, while all-wheel drive models start at $45,245. For rear-wheel-drive models, that’s a decrease of $4,100 and $4,000 for all-wheel-drive G70s. The decrease in pricing is likely attributed to the addition of extra trim levels for the optional 3.3-liter V6 engine.

Unlike last year, Genesis will offer the 2022 G70 in Prestige, Sport Advanced, Sport Prestige, and Launch Edition trims. With the new trim levels, the G70 matches Genesis’ other vehicles for a more harmonious lineup.

Despite pricing creeping upwards for the 2022 G70, the compact sedan continues to be a value option in the class. The G70 is more affordable than the Audi A4 ($40,145), BMW 3-Series ($42,895), Mercedes-Benz C-Class ($43,700), Volvo S60 ($39,995), and Alfa Romeo Giulia ($39,245). The only sedan in the class that costs less than the G70 is the Acura TLX, which carries a starting price of $38,525.

The starting price may seem like a large increase, but it’s normal to see pricing go up for a refresh and the higher price tag is justified with the new changes. Last year’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine has been replaced with a larger turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder that makes 290 horsepower. It’s the same engine that’s found in the G80 and GV80. On the inside, the sedan now comes with a 10.25-inch infotainment screen. Highway Driving Assist, which is a Level 2 driving-assist system that combines adaptive cruise control and a lane-centering assist system to handle a lot of the driving on highways, is also standard for 2022.

Genesis hasn’t confirmed when the 2022 G70 will officially go on sale, but we expect the compact sedan to arrive at dealerships before the end of the year.
