For 2021, the G70 is getting some big design changes that come from some of the brands latest vehicles; G80, G90 and GV80. This means, a new and bigger grille, new headlights and new taillights. Also, if you look at pictures of the upcoming GV70, similarities between it and this facelifted G70 can be noticed.

That exhaust looks massive! Hopefully that means some more performance as well!

This is what I'm talking about! I'm digging the different wheel options it's showing. I think the first ones are my favorite of the bunch.

The 2021+ G70 was spied again and this time more of the body is exposed and for the first time we get to see the interior:

A widescreen infotainment system, updated 3D instrument cluster and better materials are expected.

Another round of 2021 Genesis G70 spy shots that reveal even more:

Points to Note:
  • new Genesis signature headlights and taillights w/twin horiztonal lenses
  • the version seen here wears Kia Stinger alloy wheels (any guesses why? a hint of something?)
  • interior will receive a major makeover

A new facelifted G70 test mule was spotted again and with it some new information:

  • expected to release during the first-half of 2021
  • infotainment to include a 10.25-inch wide display
  • new powertrain
  • 19 color options
  • 2021 genesis g70 wagon is aimed at the European market
Some of these are similar to the GV80 and new G80, as you can expect with Genesis streamlining things.

I can't imagine it getting anywhere near as bad as the new BMW 4-Series grille...

A pathetically low bar to measure against. Sadly, I think the new G90 is worse. Soon the grills will have to wrap around the wheels to contain the massive ugliness.

Serious question: does anyone actually like the huge grills?

I like huge grills when they complement the design which is the case with Genesis.

BMW on the other hand took it way too far.

The 2021 G80 looks great and if its any indication of what we can expect in the facelifted G70, then we have nothing to worry about:

Also, aesthetics aside, performance upgrades should come too. The new 2021 Kia Stinger GT was spied testing on the Nurburgring Nordschleife and might be a hint of what's to come.

One publication reported this:
"While mid-cycle refreshes rarely see powertrain changes, rumors suggest the 2021 Kia Stinger GT will see a power bump. The twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 in the Stinger GT makes 365 horsepower (272 kilowatts) and 376 pound-feet (510 Newton-meters) of torque. The updated mill allegedly makes 380 hp (283 kW) and 390 lb-ft (528 Nm). The regular Stinger could get Hyundai’s new turbocharged 2.5-liter that produces 290 hp (216 kW)."

Thoughts?

As expected, the facelifted G70 interior gets major changes.

It turns out that we won't be getting new powertrains with the facelift.
