I am looking at purchasing a 2004 Cirrus SR20. I know the G2 version
came out in the same year. Can anyone tell me:

-> Is there anywhere I can find out what the differences are?

-> Which of these differences is material, as opposed to minor?

Also, I am currently flying a Cessna Cardinal RG II (which is a
beautiful, comfortable, stable aircraft - I love it, but it is 30
years old). Any thoughts on comparisons?

The doors and latches are a new and improved design. Everything else in the G2 is designed to make the airplane either cheaper to build or easier to service.

Additionally, the G2 provides better interior options, color/paint styles and some other cosmetic fixes viz. better looking wheel pant,etc.
