It’s hard to believe, but over 20 years have passed since Genesis shook up the American sports car market.

Genesis continues to put pressure on the segment with its 2024 G70 Sports Prestige four-door sedan with rear wheel drive. The model adds a 2.5-liter, turbocharged, inline, four cylinder engine and Brembo braking system as standard equipment, increasing its overall dynamic driving experience.

I’ve always thought of Genesis as a sports car tailored toward older folks. And with each passing year, I become more sure. The G70 accelerates and handles as expected, without sacrificing roominess, comfort, and posh amenities.

“We are pleased to bring important updates to our award-winning G70 lineup,” said Claudia Marquez, chief operating officer of Genesis Motor North America. “Customers are passionate about the exhilarating driving experience provided by the G70 sport sedan, and we can’t wait to offer them a number of enhancements, including more standard power and performance for the 2024 model.”

The new engine delivers 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The G70 seats up to five adults with a cavernous trunk, and delivers 29 miles per gallon down the highway as rated by the EPA.

For those looking for even more, there is more. Genesis offers a 3.3-liter, twin-turbocharged, V6 engine that boosts those numbers significantly.

Added exterior and interior details emphasize the sophistication and design leadership of the brand, with even more convenience features added to improve the user experience. Two details that come to mind are new touch-type climate controls and a frameless rearview mirror.

The Sport Prestige package ($4,200) adds 19-inch sport alloy wheels, dark chrome grille, sport aluminum trim, wide sunroof, parking distance warning in both directions, power folding side mirrors, leather seating, ventilated front seats, Lexicon premium audio and a wireless phone charger.

Other standard goodies include heated front seats and steering wheel, driver’s seat four-way lumbar support, smart cruise control, highway driving assist, eight-inch digital cluster with analog gauges, 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, USB-C charging, proximity key with push-button start, and XM satellite radio.

The interior creates an upscale, comfortable, serene vibe enjoyed equally by front- and rear-seat passengers, thanks to ample leg room in the back seat. Second-row passenger also benefit from side airbags, an uncommon safety bonus.

The enhanced 2024 G70 delivers available Genesis digital key. The digital key is paired using Apple Wallet and Samsung Pass. The vehicle intelligently recognizes the driver and

automatically authenticates them, loading their customized vehicle preferences. No fuss. No muss.

Completing the Genesis G70 package is an advanced safety suite second to none.

Highlights include forward collision avoidance assist, lane-keeping assist, lane-following assist, driver attention warning, blind-spot collision warning, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance, rearview camera, safe exit warning and rear occupant alert.

Base Price: $42,750

Price As Driven: $48,450

Destination charge is included in base price. Vehicles are provided by the manufacturer. List price may vary at local dealerships.
