As reported by the Caranddriver portal, the Genesis G70 sedan will soon receive a classic six-speed manual transmission that will transmit the thrust of a two-liter 252-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine with the rear-wheel drive. Such information appeared on the US government website EPA, where the fuel efficiency of vehicles is recorded. Also there it is indicated that in this version there will be a self-locking rear differential, which means that most likely this sedan can effectively twist the “beetles”, and in the turns when the gas pedal is pressed, its rear part will behave very playfully. However, it is worth waiting for the first test drives, so that these theses are confirmed.

With the eight-speed “automatic” Shifttronic Genesis G70 accelerates to 100 kilometers per hour in 4.7 seconds, with the manual transmission of the dynamics of the sedan will be approximately the same. But the fuel efficiency, judging by the EPA rating, with the manual transmission will only worsen: if with the “mechanics” the sedan is able to overcome in the urban mode 18 miles per 1 gallon of gasoline (about 13 liters per 100 kilometers of the equivalent way), then with the automatic transmission Fuel consumption drops to 10.69 liters per 100 kilometers of the road (22 miles per gallon of fuel).

Recall, the world premiere of the G70 took place in September 2017, the same month, four-door sedan entered at the Korean market. At the home of the brand, the model can be bought with gasoline turbo engines 2.0 (252 hp) and V6 3.3 (370 hp), as well as turbocharged diesel 2.2 (202 hp). All engines are completed with 8AKP.
