2019 Hyundai Genesis G70 Will Come With Manual Transmission Option

2019 genesis g70

The upcoming 2019 Hyundai Genesis G70 compact sports sedan will come with a manual transmission option, a representative for the South Korean automaker said. Genesis is Hyundai’s standalone luxury brand.

This manual transmission option has just placed the G70 in a segment that has increasingly become lacking of options that would allow you to “row your own” vehicle. Kevin Smith, Genesis’ spokesman, said in a report by The Car Connection that the 6-speed manual gearbox will be paired with the G70’s standard 2.0-liter turbo-4. There are no details though on the pricing of these different trim levels.

It is further revealed that the G70’s manual option is only for purists, which means those who can handle the turbo-4 and a rear-wheel drive. On the other hand, the more powerful 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine will be exclusive with the 8-speed automatic that will be optional with the turbo-4.

It’s in the fuel economy that will suffer, apparently. The rear-wheel-drive G70 will be powered by the 2.0-liter inline-4 with manual transmission. That has an EPA rating of 18 mpg city, 28 highway, and 22 combined. Compare that to the 22/30/25 mpg for the G70 with an automatic transmission, the turbo-4, and rear-wheel drive, and the manual option surely did a take a lot of hit.

The rest of the lineup will have these ratings: 21/28/23 mpg for the turbo-4, the 8-speed automatic, and the all-wheel drive, 18/26/21 mpg for the optional V-6, and 18/25/20 mpg for the V-6 and all-wheel drive.

The G70 will probably make its debut this early 2018 as a 2019 model, so that should come anytime soon. As for the prices, though there is no official word yet, it will probably be in the $30,000 bracket.

Aside from the Hyundai Genesis G70, other luxury models from other brands offering manual transmission are the Cadillac ATS, Audi A4, and BMW 3-Series.


Top 4 Things About The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sports Coupe

Spy shots revealed more than what we expected for the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sports Coupe. The sloped roof clearly seen on the spy shots is reminiscent of what BMW has done on most of its SUVs.

Although the Land Rover already has the Range Rover Evoque Coupe in its lineup, that didn’t stop the British automaker’s plans to introduce a second coupe-like SUV. For now, it’s codenamed the L560, but we all know it’s going to be called the Range Rover Sports Coupe after the more on-road-oriented Range Rover Sport.

1. No Third-Row Seating

Those who are wishing that Land Rover will come out with a seven-seater SUV will need to mend their broken hearts again. Although the looks of the Range Rover Sports Coupe is not far off from the conventional Range Rover Sport, we can already see that the roof is seated much lower. With that low sloping orientation, don’t expect this SUV to have a third row for the sixth and seventh passenger.

2. Platform Is Similar To Jaguar F-Pace

Though the Range Rover Sports Coupe will be longer than the Jaguar F-Pace, it will use the same aluminum-intensive platform we have seen on the Jag. Why the larger size, you ask? The Range Rover Sports Coupe aims to bridge the wide gap between the Range Rover Evoque and the Range Rover Sport in the luxury-oriented lineup.

Apparently, the Range Rover Sports Coupe will be competing with the BMW X6 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.

3. Four Powertrains To Be Available

For now, we’re pretty sure that the Range Rover Sports Coupe will be offered with an inline-4 and a 6-cylinder. But it’s also possible that at least in the United States, a new inline unit would be made available as a standard option. There are also talks that it will eventually offer an electric option similar to what Jaguar will be using for the I-Pace.
