The 2024 Genesis G70 comes with a higher price tag compared to last year, and this increase is not without reason. Genesis has introduced some notable changes to enhance the sports sedan’s interior, along with an engine swap for the base model. Additionally, the inclusion of standard Brembo brakes contributes to the starting price of the 2024 G70 rising by $2170, bringing it to $42,695.
An Upgraded 3.3T
One significant alteration is the standard inclusion of a more powerful 300-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, replacing the previous 252-hp 2.0-liter turbo four. However, the optional twin-turbo 3.3-liter V-6 remains unchanged, maintaining its pairing with an eight-speed automatic transmission and offering either rear- or all-wheel drive. Despite no modifications to the V-6, the base price for G70s with this configuration has seen a substantial increase.
For the 2024 model, the G70 3.3T now starts at $51,145, marking a notable $5120 hike compared to the previous pricing, whether opting for standard rear-wheel drive or paying an additional $2100 for all-wheel drive. The primary reason behind the significant price increase for the V-6 models is the inclusion of the Sport Advanced package as a standard feature, previously offered as a $4300 option. Meanwhile, the Sport Prestige package costs $4200 for new 2.5T models and $4400 for 3.3T models.
Among the new features introduced in the G70 are updated climate controls with touch-sensitive functions and a frameless rearview mirror. According to the EPA, the new G70 2.5T maintains mostly the same fuel-economy estimates, with the only exception being the RWD version’s highway estimate dropping from 31 to 29 mpg, and the combined rating decreasing from 25 to 24 mpg. The 2024 G70 lineup is expected to reach U.S. dealerships in the coming weeks.
