Car & Driver is reporting that the ‘19 Genesis G70 will be getting a manual in the US thanks to the release of EPA ratings for the car. The thing is you will only be able to get it with the 252 horse 2.0 liter engine on the G70 2.0T. The fuel economy for the G70 2.0T with rwd and the auto trans is 22/30/25 combined. It drops with awd going to 18/25/20 combined. The manual drops too going to 18/28/22 combined with rwd.
Hopefully the car is coming soon with the ongoing drama of Hyundai wanting certain US dealers to be able to sell the car. Its why you wont find anything about G70 on the Genesis US site. Up in Canada you can already pre order the car. Here in the US, its like it doesn’t even exist.
