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.

Hello everybody! I want to say thank you very much for the review as it was very useful for me. I'm currently looking for a car with the ideal characteristics for myself, and I thought it would be a good idea to differentiate the pros and cons of each tire and choose the best one for myself. I remembered that I did this when I was looking for a driving school and chose the best one https://www.anewdriver.ie/ where John Hickey works as an instructor. She really impressed me with her good reviews. I advise you to try to choose something like this and you will really be able to choose the best for yourself.
