- The Genesis G70 sports sedan gets slightly higher pricing for 2020, starting at $36,445 for the 2.0T model and $47,095 for the 3.3T model.
- The manual-transmission 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 a newly available brown leather interior.
Even though very few people bought it—Genesis says the six-speed manual has made up only 4 percent of all G70 2.0T sales so far—we think it's admirable that the company is keeping it around. It's the only car in its segment that offers a stick shift anymore, now that the BMW, Audi, Cadillac, and others have dropped their manual options. (Of course, now that we've driven the G70 6MT we know that the six-speed that pairs with the standard 2.0-liter is not much to write home about, but that's besides the point; we appreciate its existence regardless.)
The rest of the lineup is much the same as before, with prices going up a few hundred dollars for most trim levels. The 2.0T model starts at $36,445, a $550 uptick, the 3.3T model starts at $47,095, a $600 rise, and the stand-alone 2.0T Sport M/T trim level with the manual transmission starts at $39,495, $600 more than before. All-wheel drive remains a $2000 option for all automatic-transmission models, and the various Elite, Prestige, and Sport trim levels remain.
Newly available is a brown leather interior option, performance brakes for 2.0T Sport models, a slightly different wheel finish for the 18-inch wheels, and a power trunk lid for the 3.3T Prestige model.
