Anchoring the core of the Genesis brand’s three-sedan lineup is the G70. For 2022, the smallest and best-selling sedan in Hyundai’s luxury brand gets refreshed styling that includes a dramatically larger shield grille and twin hash-mark LED headlamps and taillights of the G80, G90, and GV80 models, as well as a revised interior that gains an electronic driver display and a larger 10.25-inch infotainment display. Other updates include an expansion of safety and driver-assistive systems.
Genesis offers the 2022 G70 in six trim levels. Including the $1,045 destination charge, they include the $38,570 2.0T, $42,570 2.0T Prestige, $43,145 3.3T, $47,445 3.3T Sport Advanced, $51,445 3.3T Sport Prestige, and $53,545 3.3T Launch Edition. The Launch Edition is a limited-production offering with matte paint and a two-tone red-and-black interior. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is a $2,000 or $2,100 upcharge, depending on the trim.
The G70 competes with entry-luxury sedans such as the Acura TLX, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Audi A4 and A5, BMW 3 Series, Cadillac CT4, Infiniti Q50, Kia Stinger, Lexus ES and IS, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Volvo S60.
