The base price of the sports sedan rises, and a new brown leather upholstery is also offered.

The Genesis G70 sports sedan will receive a slightly higher price in 2020, starting at $ 36,445 for the 2.0T and $ 47,495 for the 3.3T. The manual transfer option remains part of the options list, starting at $ 39,495. Minor changes for the new model year also include new 18-inch wheels and the newly available brown leather interior.

The Genesis G70 sports sedan enters its second model year with slight modifications and a slight increase in prices. The good news is that the manual gearbox remains part of the line, although initially we heard that it could be a one-year offer.

Although very few bought it – Genesis says that the six-speed manual transmission has so far made up only 4 percent of all sales of the G70 2. It is the only car in its segment that offers tougher gear shifts, now that BMW, Audi, Cadillac and others abandoned their manual options. (Of course, now that we drove the G70 6MT, we know that the six-speed, combined with the standard 2.0-liter, is not so good, but it does not matter, we value its existence independently.

The rest of the line is almost the same as before, with prices that go up several hundred dollars for most trim levels. The 2.0T model costs from $ 36,445, the growth is $ 550, the 3.3T model is from $ 47,495, the growth is $ 600, and the 2.0T Sport M / T stand-alone sports equipment with a manual transmission starts at $ 39,495 US, which is $ 600 more than before. Four-wheel drive remains the $ 2,000 choice for all automatic transmission models, and various trim levels for the Elite, Prestige and Sport remain. Brown leather trim, service brakes for the 2.0T Sport models, slightly different wheel trim for 18-inch wheels, and a boot lid for the 3.3T Prestige appeared on sale.
