With that in mind, the front of the updated G70 features the Korean automaker’s new “Quad Lamps” headlights which give the sports sedan a particularly athletic appearance. The front also features the iconic Genesis grille as well as new shapely air intakes and a large lower grille. Fewer changes were made alongside the 2021 model, but there are air extractors just behind the front wheels.

Genesis also overhauled the rear fascia of the 2021 G70 with the fitting of its new Quad Lamp taillights which were inspired by the swept fenders of the Genesis logo. The sedan also features a body-color diffuser as well as oval tailpipes.
Passing inside we find an expanded 10.25-inch infotainment system that features an exclusive Genesis UI design and supports live wireless updates as well as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a Valet mode. Genesis has also positioned the wireless charger horizontally rather than vertically. Besides these changes, everything else looks the same.
“The new Genesis G70 will engage customers with its dynamic design and the latest innovations in safety and luxury,” a Genesis spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re excited to reveal more detailed specifications next month.”
Powertrain details on the refurbished G70 remain under wraps, but it is understood that the entry-level 2.0-liter four-cylinder will be replaced by a new turbocharged 2.5-liter producing 290 hp and 420 Nm of torque. The flagship engine will likely still take the form of a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 producing 365 horsepower and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft). Unfortunately, the manual gearbox will be dropped from the lineup.
