2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe What's new for 2015? 
2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe

For 2015, Hyundai's Genesis Coupe jettisons the 4-cylinder turbo, leaving a 3.8-liter V6 as the only engine. A new entry-level trim is introduced, while the Grand Touring trim is dropped. The R-Spec gains proximity key with push-button start and automatic climate control.

The engine now matches revs on downshifts with the 8-speed automatic transmission, and high-performance synchronizer rings were added to the manual transmission for better shift feel. The Genesis Coupe also gets fog lights, cruise control, and a few other features standard. R-Spec models get better seats.

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe gets its mid-cycle refresh for 2013, and it's an impressive one. The front end is meaner looking, the engines are much more powerful, and the interior is more stylish.

Only a year into its existence, the Genesis Coupe has been given the kind of interior makeover we wouldn't expect to see until a mid-cycle refresh. Hyundai has been quick to address shortcomings, and the Genesis Coupe's interior wasn't as well-received as the rest of the car. A lean-and-mean Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec also joins the lineup for 2011.

The fun, affordable and attractive Genesis Coupe is yet another Hyundai destined to sway non-believers and force even some premium-leaning buyers into a detour.

About Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Hyundai's Genesis Coupe enters 2015 with some major updates, making it highly desirable for those looking to spend as little as possible to get the power and performance of some higher-end coupes. When it comes down to pure performance, however, the Genesis Coupe is quick to get to the dance floor but doesn't have the moves to dazzle the crowd. The suspension still feels a bit soft to us, and the steering feedback needs to be more precise and linear. Hyundai could take a lesson from Scion, Subaru and Mazda in this area. However, if you're more impressed with looks, straight-line acceleration and comfort, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will probably thrill you more than it does us.

"Love the styling and features. This car replaced an earlier Toyota Avalon because it had similar features and was much more stylish. Owned for two years with no problems. Comfortable and economical on long trips (Interstate hwy. driving has averaged 31-32 mpg on regular gasoline.)"

"I owned a 2001 Acura CL which I really enjoyed, but not as much as the Genesis. I bought the Acura because of the conveniences and quality of the car for the money I paid, but I believe the Genesis offers far more for the money plus the fact that I can put regular gas versus premium for the Acura. I never received too many compliments on the Acura, but I am shocked at the number of people that still come up to me and compliment me on such a beautiful car, and they ask what kind of car is it....and I tell them it's a Hyundai Genesis, and they usually say, "Wow, Hyundai has come a long way...they make beautiful cars now." Another frequent question is how do I like the car, to which I respond, "I love this car." It's heavy and sticks to the ground like some Mercedes and older Jags I've driven. It's powerful, and I've never had a better sound system than the Lexicon 17 speaker DVD player / sound system. The closest one would be a Bose on an older Infinity J30, but this is still so much better. The other good thing is you don't see too many Genesis cars on the road, which means they don't get stolen or taken for parts because there isn't the same demand there is for something like a Camry. I hope it stays that way. Unfortunately, I think people will start to figure the Genesis out and start buying a lot more."

Pros: "smooth, easy, loveable"

Cons: "deep snow performance is bad, less snow is fine"

"I have absolutely adored this car, and have but one complaint, and one annoyance. In Colorado, the car is magic in the mountains, and cities alike, so long as the snow is less than about 3". once the snow pack is deep, the stability and traction controls lose their ability to drive affectively. Hyundai needs to learn quite a bit in this regard. When the stability control is on, and the wheels slip on deep snow, the engine is cut of nearly all of it's power, and the wheels still spin. This is unworkable, and causes the car to creep forward, but only barely. it is nearly a standstill. I usually turn the ESC (Stability) off when starting from a light or stop sign in these conditions, which allows the engine full power, and allows me proper modulation of the throttle without interference. Audi and BMW cars that i've driven have superior drive systems in extreme weather. On ice, or light snow, the systems work well, and perform flawlessly. In those conditions, or dry weather, this is one of the most pleasant cars i've ever driven, from low-end fords, to jags. The drive is smooth, and absolutely controllable. the 5-point multi-link suspension in the rear is a great addition, and entices a very neutral driving line, with a hint of oversteer. The one part I would change would be the transmission on the V6 model. It uses a slightly dated Aisin 6-speed. While it has a manual mode, it is very much of the old style, where it gives little to no performance or control gain. The V8 models have a very well made ZF 8-speed, which shifts more smoothly. Even a newer Aisin 6-speed would be nice. The current Aisin model is very smooth, but sometimes unpredictable, and occasionally jerky under load. At 108K miles, the engine is working flawlessly. More than just listening, and feeling. For those interested/educated in engines I can tell you that my engines STFT is within .7%, LTFT is dead at 0.0%, and O2 sensors modulate properly without spiking low or high. There has been no rebuild, or electronics replacement. Everything is factory stock. I average 20-22 mpg, with a fairly even mixture of city/highway driving, and about 1,500 miles per month. Highly recommended, easily driveable in any conditions, plenty of space, and the reliability is rock solid."
