For the 2024 model year, the compact Genesis G70 sedan has been updated with a new standard engine, enhanced braking capabilities as standard, and several interior refinements.
The vehicle now features a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, replacing the previous 2.0-liter version. This new engine delivers 300 horsepower, an increase of 48 horsepower from its predecessor. Additionally, the previously optional Brembo brakes have been made a standard feature.
Overview of the Genesis G70
Continuing to be available is the twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V-6 engine, which is expected to maintain its output of 365 horsepower from the 2023 model. The standard configuration includes rear-wheel drive with an option for all-wheel drive, and an 8-speed automatic transmission remains the sole choice. Notably, the 6-speed manual transmission option was discontinued after the 2021 model year.
The exterior design remains largely the same but introduces a redesigned Genesis logo and two new color options: Vatna Gray and Kawah Blue.
Details of the 2024 Genesis G70
Inside, the car sees minor updates such as a new climate control display, a frameless rearview mirror, and two new two-tone interior color schemes: Obsidian Black/Fog Gray and Obsidian Black Vanilla Beige.
New standard features include a rear side airbag and USB-C charging ports. The G70 also introduces digital key technology, compatible with Apple Wallet and Samsung Pass, which enables smartphone-based vehicle access and sharing without the need for a physical key fob.
Since its debut in 2019, the G70 has undergone significant updates, particularly in 2022, enhancing its style and mature appeal. It remains the smallest sedan in the Genesis lineup, positioned beneath the G80 and G90 models.
