About Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Hyundai’s Genesis Coupe enters 2016 with one update: A 6-inch color display for the audio system has been added to the center stack, replacing a dot-matrix screen. Other than that, the 2016 Genesis Coupe carries over unchanged, and remains an attractive choice for those who want to spend as little as possible to get the power and performance of some higher-end coupes. In terms of pure performance, however, the standard Genesis Coupe remains a bit soft, with steering that lacks feel. The R-Spec and Ultimate models address this with firmer suspension, but everyday ride quality suffers. Hyundai engineers should look to Mazda for guidance in this area. Nevertheless, the 2016 Genesis Coupe succeeds as a fast and comfortable rear-drive coupe at a good price.

For 2016, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe gets a new 6-inch color display on the dash, employed in place of the former dot-matrix screen.

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 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.

Love this car!

"I bought this car used about four months ago and it's awesome for the money I paid (about 16k). It had about 53k miles on the odometer and was in basically mint condition. I love this car. It's fast and luxury all wrapped up in one. I never owned a Hyundai before, but I'm sold on this brand now. Don't hesitate, buy this car!"

After the dragon.

"This is the second generation of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, which came out in 2010. When compared to the competition there is really not a lot of comparison. This car in the "bang for the buck" area wins hands down. You have to bust out and other ten grand to get the same car anywhere else. I have had this car for almost a year, and just love it. It is easy to do minor upgrades on. It drives wonderfully, like any Japanese or European car of similar class. No it is not a BMW M4 but then you didn't pay that price for it either. I have taken this car to a few club rally's and on long drives and even dirty it turns heads. To sum it all up. It looks great on the outside, feels great on the inside, runs like a beast and turns heads almost everywhere we go."

"This car is a lot of car for your money. My parents own BMW's and Mercedes-Benz's. I have more equipment in my car than they do put together. The premium comes with a 7 inch touchscreen navigation (can't find that in a BMW or Benz), leather and cloth seating, keyless entry and start, looks that surpass the competition and looks that will turn heads wherever you go. People consistently ask me how much the car costs, and then they start guessing in the high 40's to the low 50's. When I tell them that this is a $30,000 car, they are in shock and immediately ask me where I can get one. You cannot compare this car to the competition as it is superior. Quality for this car is excellent. If you are looking for an affordable sports car, look no further than the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe."
