As a first generation model, I think its impressive what Kia has been able to achieve with their first real sports car. I personally feel like it was a bit of an oversight not to offer it with a manual, at least in the base trim, but I know that's a growing trend in the industry. Time will tell if it makes a difference for the G70.

I think if they had opted for a smoother, less restrictive transmission that the lack of a manual would't be much of an issue. But with the current setup and forced up-shifting, it does remove the sporty characteristics which should be present on a vehicle like this.
