Genesis is making a mid-cycle update of the G70 sedan for the 2021 model year.
The “two lines” look echoes the G80 and G90 and will be a motif for all new models in the coming years. As can be seen in the latest spy photos available on the Internet, the Genesis G70 facelift is the next in the lineup to get split lights at the front and rear.
The changes include a larger corporate Crest Grille, a new widescreen infotainment system with Genesis Connected Services, updated 3D instrument cluster inside, materials of better quality.
The model will get a new gasoline 2.5-liter turbo engine paired with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. This mill with the fuel consumption of 28.9 mpg is 10 percent more efficient than the current 2.0-liter unit it replaces. Frankly, the car’s fuel economy is unimpressive compared with rivals.
The company also improves the G70’s driving performance, which is not good at high speeds, and reduces the weight by 26.5 pounds (12 kg).
The 2021 Genesis G70 sedan will be unveiled in late 2020. A wagon version is under consideration as well.
The current G70 is priced between $35,450-46,650. It has #1 ranking within the luxury small cars category. The model tops the predicted reliability rating and has excellent safety scores.
