Genesis Announces New 2.5T for 2024 G70 Sedan

New engine, new interior

  • Base G70 gets an extra 48 hp

  • Cabin updates are also on deck for the sports sedan

The Genesis G70 is getting a new engine and more power. A new 2.5L engine replaces last year’s 2.0L and Genesis is upgrading the braking system to go along with it.

In 2023, the base trim of the Genesis G70 got a 2.0L turbo-four that made 252 hp. The new 2.5L makes an even 300 horses, along with 311 lb-ft of torque. It gives the car the most powerful standard engine in its segment, the automaker said. The 368 hp 3.3L twin-turbo V6 stays on the options list.

To help cope with the extra power, Genesis is upgrading the brakes. All copies of the G70 have Brembo brakes that the company says boost stopping power.

Genesis is upgrading the cabin, too. A new exterior emblem with a new engraved pattern gives a hint as to what’s in store inside.

There is a new touch-type climate control system as well as a frameless rear-view mirror. Genesis has added functional detailing to the interior switches, the door and console panels, and other spots around the cabin.

USB-C charging is standard for 2022, and there is a new rear side airbag. Genesis Digital Key 2 is added to the G70 package for the new year, and it works with Apple Wallet and Samsung Pass to let customers use their phone as a key. Owners can even share a virtual key through iMessage, giving other drivers access remotely.

Genesis said that pricing will come later this year. Expect the new model at dealers around the same time.
