To the people here who don't even know what a G70 really is, its a sport sedan, track ready (not focused) car.
Its a car that I can describe as a fake sedan because underneath its really a sport coupe, its has all the basic ingredients of a sport car plus a better build quality/luxury, extra two doors and weight.
Thanks, Genesis! Very cool. Hopefully their Gr.1 car isn't too far behind, as well as the latest iteration of the G80 Sport.
Uh, what about the Genesis G80 Sport?
G80 "Sport" is just a trim name, older (2018-2021) generation is too heavy and the "Sport" name was just a better engine, some fake CF accents and a few minor extras, the newer generation is lighter and much better but it is still heavy and its more like a sportier version of a luxury sedan rather than a sport sedan.
And I don't discount dual-clutch automated manual transmissions as part of a real sports car. Not that anyone cares, but here's my criteria for a proper "sports car:"
-2 primary seats (extremely small back seats in which no normal sized human can fit are allowed)
-Manual Transmission (including automated manuals like DCTs, but no conventional automatics with torque converters)
-The primary design focus of the car needs to be handling and fun-to-drive-ness, not necessarily power.
Being a DCT doesn't mean its a sport transmission and being a torque converter auto doesn't mean its not a sport transmission, for example the G70 torque converter auto performs and shifts better/faster than 6-speed and 7-speed Hyundai DCTs in other Hyundai cars.
Same goes for 8-speed ZF autos thats used in many cars, you can easily mistake them for a dual clutch because of how fast it shifts.
Manufacturers are moving away from DCTs for non-track focused cars because a nowadays a proper TQ auto can like give you 90% of the performance with none of the drawbacks of DCTs.
Also, I'm pretty sure the G80 Sport specifically comes with a DCT, as I recall seeing paddle shifters in my dad's G80 Sport. (Albeit it's a little older, being from the 2018 model year.) You know what else has been coming with DCTs these days? Ferraris.
All Hyundai/Genesis RWD based cars are using torque converter autos, DCTs are only available on some FWD based cars.
