Weíve been big fans of Hyundai's spin-off luxury Genesis brand ever since it launched 2017. Check out our reviews of the G70, G80, and G90 here.

Now weíre getting a sneak peek of the redesigned G70 model which we expect to go on sale in the U.S. late this year or early in 2021. Major updates include exterior design tweaks that bring it in line with the new GV80 SUV. That includes its new two bar stacked headlights in the front. The entire grille is in more of a V-shape at the bottom as well as opposed to being straight across as in the 2019 model we reviewed.

In terms of the powertrain, Genesis isnít saying much in its press release. But Car and Driver reports that the new G70 will share a larger base 290-horsepower turbocharged engine with the G80 and GV80, and potentially get a twin-turbo V6 to replace the 3.3T. C&D also reports that Hyundai confirms it will no longer offer the 6-speed manual transmission.

The interior is, as it was, driver-centric and full of technology. The new G70 will have an updated 10.25-inch infotainment screen. It will offer wireless updates, Valet mode along with Apple CarPay and Android Auto. The wireless charge is also now horizontal.

Since its launch, the G70 has racked up a bunch of awards. such as the 2018 Good Design Award (Transportation Design Division), 2019 North American Car of the Year and Top Safety Pick+ recognition from the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Pricing is expected to start around $37,000.
