For 2020, the G70 Sport trim gets beefed-up brakes, while the 3.3T can now be equipped with a power-operated trunk. In addition, 19-in wheels with all-season tires are also available, while brown and Nappa leather are added to the interior option sheet. See the 2020 Genesis G70 models for sale near you
We think the G70 is at its finest with the V6 engine, but we understand that its heftier price and fuel bill might not be ideal. With either engine, we'd consider the Elite model. It does raise the price considerably, but you still get abundant luxury equipment for the money. The other trims just make things a touch more opulent and/or performance-oriented.

The G70 is available in two trim levels that correspond with the engine: 2.0T and 3.3T.
Standard equipment on the base 2.0T trim level ($36,445) includes 18-in wheels, LED running lights, automatic headlights and high beam control, heated mirrors, proximity entry and push-button start, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, driver inattention warning, a backup camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, 8-way power front seats, a 60/40 split folding back seat, simulated leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an 8-in touchscreen, three USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HD and satellite radios and a 6-speaker sound system.

The Elite package adds LED headlights, automatic wipers, parking sensors, power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors, a sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, driver memory settings, a power-adjustable steering wheel, leather upholstery, integrated navigation and a 15-speaker Lexicon sound system.
The Sport M/T (RWD only) ($36,445) is similar to the base 2.0T but adds a 6-speed manual transmission (the only way to get it), a limited-slip differential, 19-in wheels, performance tires, a sport exhaust and Brembo high-performance brakes.
The Prestige adds to the Elite's equipment surround-view parking cameras, a head-up display, diamond-quilted leather upholstery, power driver seat cushion extension, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, a suedecloth headliner, a power trunk and wireless smartphone charging. Also standard are 19-in wheels.
The base 3.3T trim level ($45,645) is equipped similarly to the 2.0T Elite, but with the Sport M/T's performance-enhancing features. Exceptions include the sunroof, parking sensors and automatic wipers, which are added in the 3.3T's own Elite package. The 3.3T is also available with broadly similar Prestige and Sport packages, as well.

2020 BMW 3 Series -- After being fully redesigned last year, the king of the segment will have to fight hard to retain its crown.
2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class -- The C-Class would be the traditional competitor in this segment, but the A-Class is similar in size to the G70 and boasts a stunning, high-tech cabin for those more interested in luxury than performance.
Used BMW 3 Series -- Since a new 3 Series costs considerably more than a G70 when similarly equipped and powered, one might consider a used or certified pre-owned one. Look for the big-engine 335i model.
