2020 Genesis Model Year Changes



2020 Genesis G70

Prices are up about $500. The entry-level "Advanced" package has been renamed "Standard." The "Dynamic" trim is dropped.

A new power trunk closer is standard on 3.3T Prestige and 3.3T Sport models; it does not allow hands-free closing. Hands-free opening is still standard on all models.


2020 Genesis G80

No changes. A redesigned model is on the way for 2021, minus the optional V8.

A subtle redesign includes strings of LEDs in the tops of the lower grille, a new chrome grille, new chrome trim at the top of the lower grille, a reshaped hood and a slightly wider chrome strip on the lower sides. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirror Link are all now standard, enhancing use of a smart phone while driving. Active Noise Cancellation is new and will help the serenity of the cabin and the enjoyment of the sound system.

Lane Follow Assist is added, helping a vehicle stay in line even when lane markings are missing by lining up with the traffic in front. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist now detects bicycles. Safe Exit Assist alerts driver and passengers when a car is approaching so they don't open a door into traffic. Highway Auto Speed Slowdown, an enhancement to Smart Cruise Control, will adjust the set speed to match changes in the legal speed limit. A passenger-side front knee protection airbag has been added in conjunction with the still-standard driver knee airbag.

GV80 Concept

Genesis GV80 Concept SUV

Not this one, but an actual production GV80 crossover sport utility is headed for U.S. dealerships sometime in 2020 as a 2021 model. It is based on the chassis of the G80 sedan, so we can expect it to be a rear-drive orientation with a V6, turbo V6 and/or V8 powertrains. Five passenger seating and a moderate cargo compartment will be on hand, as will optional or standard all-wheel drive more suited to snow, boat launches and shopping malls than the Rubicon.
