Gaining a bit of functional polish for the coming year, the 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will arrive in dealers soon boasting a selection of welcome upgrades. In addition to modest mechanical tweaks, the latest iteration of this enthusiast-oriented rear-drive 2-door also benefits from several new comfort/convenience touches.
Genesis Coupe engines carry over unchanged, with the 2.0T, 2.0T R-Spec and 2.0T Premium sharing the same 274-horsepower/2.0-liter turbocharged direct-injected 4-cylinder and the 3.8 R-Spec, 3.8 Grand Touring and 3.8 Ultimate featuring a naturally aspirated 348-horse/3.8-liter direct-injected V6. However, the operation of both transmissions has been improved. The 8-speed automatic with Shiftronic features new rev-matching capability on downshifts while the 6-speed manual - available only on R-Spec Coupes and the 3.8 Grand Touring model -- benefits from new carbon synchronizer rings that are more robust and help deliver even smoother cog changes and adds a new Hill Start Assist feature. For 2014, the 2.0T engine also boasts a bit more aural excitement potential "during spirited driving" thanks to the fitment of an intake sound induction pipe.
Save for five new colors -- Santiago Silver, Ibiza Blue, Caspian Black, Casablanca White and Empire State Gray -- plus the addition of foglamps and heated side-view mirrors on all models, little changes on the 2014 Genesis Coupe's exterior. Inside, higher quality fabrics richen the look while the standards roster expands to include cruise control, an auto-dimming inside mirror with Homelink and floor mats. The racier R-spec models get more deeply bolstered sport seats and the Coupe's available navigation system gains better graphics and functionality.
The 2014 Genesis Coupe 2.0T Premium and 3.8 Grand Touring and Ultimate Coupe also enjoy new benefits from their Blue Link telematics systems in the form of three years of standard Hyundai Assurance Connected Care that includes things like Automatic Collision Notification, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Vehicle Diagnostic Alert, Monthly Vehicle Health Report and in-vehicle Car Care maintenance scheduling.
Pricing for the 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T starts at $27,245 with the 2.0T R-Spec opening at $28,095 and the 2.0T Premium commencing at $30,195. The V6 side of the family opens at $30,245 for a 3.8 R-Spec, with the 3.8 Grand Touring starting at $33,045 and the 3.8 Ultimate beginning at $34,295 with a manual transmission and $35,495 with an autoshifter.
