Billed as Hyundai’s initial proper, compact, oppulance sports sedan, a 2019 Genesis G70 will be powered by possibly a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder or a 3.3-liter turbo V-6. When it comes to a automobile we’ll eventually get here in a U.S., delivery sum have been meagre … until now. We’re happy to news that a G70 will indeed be accessible with a primer gearbox in a states.
Looking during new EPA listings initial brought to a courtesy by Car and Driver, a six-speed primer is listed subsequent to a four-cylinder, rear-wheel expostulate G70. After reaching out to a company, a Genesis orator reliable to The Drive that a three-pedal setup would indeed be entrance to America though usually with a 250-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-pot, withdrawal those who open for a 365-horse V-6 to make do with an eight-speed auto.
Seeing as we’ve already done a outing to a EPA’s website, we competence as good tell we how fit a thing will be. The supervision group has rated a G70’s many spare version, a rear-drive, 2.0-liter automatic, during 25 miles per gallon while a automobile in a thirstiest guise, a all-wheel drive, 3.3-liter automatic, earnings 20 miles per gallon. Equipped with a manual, a G70 gets 22 MPG.
Car and Driver predicts a primer G70 to exclusively come on a Sport trim turn that bundles in a limited-slip diff, Brembo brakes, and graphic 19-inch wheels, mimicking a trim turn already reliable for Canada. A purchase pedal, LSD, and Brembos all around? V-6 or not, that recipe should make for some deliciously sharp motoring.
