    Bending lights are "new"? No.
    Inflatable bolsters in Sport mode? I haven't heard of that before. Driver size input with automatically adjustable seating position to "proper and healthy"? :D 370 HP? Is that real? If so where does the extra five horses come from?

    370 vs 365 might be slightly different measurement standards. Or, they get a slightly better engine in their homeland - not unheard of.

    The 2019 G70 Sport (CDN model) I tested had Bolsters that automatically inflated when you put it in Sport Mode.

    The rear turn signal seems to be updated to multiple LEDs like the front, and there's a new "clean air mode".

    They could easily add the seat adjust or bolster options over an update but only Tesla seems to add useful features over software updates

    Some of those items were for other markets that they and we didn't get as well as things they (Korea) got that that we didn't. The bolster do inflate in sport mode, at least in mine.

    i have yet to see anything on the 19's or 20s that is a seismic shift from the 18. All cool features, but none that I am all that in to. I'm more interested with any mechanical differences, which there doesn't seem to be any if at all.

    It's a 2019. The mid-cycle refresh is not until next year, the 2020 has been out for a few months now. I 'm fairly sure I posted a link to the Korean website when it launched so folks could see the features.

    My 2019 GT2 doesn't adjust the side bolsters when it's put in sport

    Might have something to do with the quality of Gas. Here in UAE, we have also 370bhp

    It might have been on my 2018, I used Sport mode the other day and it didn't move in. It's all programming though, maybe they applied updates to the 2019 to stop it from doing that.

    That's the seat memory - the bolsters move back when the car is turned off, presumably to make entry/exit easier.
