Genesis unveiled the 2022 G70 luxury sports sedan updated in October last year. Even though the G70 is among the first Genesis models to land in the United States, it is the last to inherit the brand’s ‘Athletic Elegance’ design philosophy after renovating the G80, G90 and unveiling the new GV80 SUV.
The price of the 2022 Genesis G70 starts at $ 38,570 (including $ 1,045 destination fees), representing a price increase of about $ 1,525 over the outgoing G70 2.0T RWD model. Despite this, the basic 2022 G70 remains fully equipped with desirable features such as 18-inch wheels, quadruple LED headlights and taillights, a 12-position electric seat with heated front seats, dual automatic temperature control and more.
The basic G70 also comes with a bevy of advanced safety equipment. It has eight standard airbags, front seat belt pretensioners and a range of driver assistance features, such as front collision prevention, lane tracking assistance, lane maintenance assistance, blind spot collision prevention, assistance high beam and smart cruise control, to name a few.
The 2022 Genesis G70 2.0T has a turbocharged 2.0 four-cylinder engine with 252 horsepower and an eight-speed automatic gearbox (a six-speed manual is available). Rear-wheel drive is standard, while the AWD remains a $ 2,100 option. The Prestige package is a $ 4,000 option for the G70 2.0T RWD and AWD and includes 19-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, a larger sunroof, a 15-speaker Lexicon premium audio system, charging wireless and more.
On the other hand, the 2022 Genesis G70 3.3T starts at $ 43,145, a reduction of $ 4,120 compared to last year’s model. It remains driven by a 3.3-liter twin-engine V6 engine, producing 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque, and an eight-speed automatic crossbar with standard RWD and optional AWD. Standard features of the G70 3.3T include 19-inch wheels, variable proportion steering, leather seats, performance brakes, dual exhaust system and tilt / telescopic steering wheel.
Genesis is offering the Sport Advanced Package for the 2022 G70 3.3T RWD and AWD. This $ 4,300 add-on includes a dark chrome exterior finish, variable exhaust system and wireless charging. In addition, the Sport Prestige package adds Brembo brakes, a limited slip differential, electronic suspension, Nappa upholstery, a surround-view camera and a heads-up display for an extra $ 4,000 (RWD) and $ 3,900 (AWD), respectively.
Meanwhile, the 2022 Genesis G70 Launch Edition starts at $ 53,545 (RWD) and $ 55,545 (AWD). The Launch Edition model comes with exclusive 19-inch wheels with multiple spokes, matte paint and a custom black and red interior.
The 2022 Genesis G70 will arrive at your favorite dealerships this summer. All Genesis vehicles come with free maintenance and collection at home for 3 years / 60,000 miles and a service valet.
