2020 Genesis G70 OverviewThe 2020 Genesis G70 is offered in four trim levels; Advanced, Sport, Design and Dynamic. Of these four trims, two different powertrains are offered, a 2.0T and 3.3T. The G70 2.0T is a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that puts out 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque and is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. The G70 3.3T gets a 3.3L turbocharged V6, making an impressive 365 horsepower and 376 lb-feet of torque, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 8-speed transmission is Genesis' Shiftronic transmission with rev-matching to shift gears at the opportune time. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is available on all trims, which works with dynamic torque vectoring to improve handling on all road conditions.
The G70 stands out and makes a statement with its aggressive wide stance, sharp lines, sleek profile and signature Genesis crosshatch grille. The front end is highlighted by open intakes and sweeping headlights, while the short tapering back end adds to the sporty look. Inside the luxury comes to life with quality materials, diamond quilted leather and a clean line dash. Fine details such as leather trim, contrasting stitching and thoughtful configuration, enhance the drivers experience inside the G70.
The entry level G70 2.0T Advanced comes nicely equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, chrome exterior trim, rear lip spoiler, leather-wrapped steering wheel, 8-way power front seats, remote keyless entry, dual-zone temperature control, leatherette seats, rearview camera, 6-speaker audio system and 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
