The 2.0T Sport forms the middle rung on the G70 ladder (at least as far as the smaller 2.0-litre engine goes) sitting above the entry-level 2.0T ($59,300) and below the 2.0T Ultimate ($69,300).
The Sport will set you back $63,300 and arrives with the same LED head- and tail-lights, 8.0-inch touchscreen that's both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-equipped, heated leather seats up front, wireless charging, dual-zone climate control and 7.0-inch TFT screen in the driver's binnacle as the entry-level cars.
The whole “Sport” bit arrives with the standard limited-slip differential and Brembo brakes, along with 19-inch alloys, that help you squeeze the most fun from a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine good for 179kW and 353Nm
