2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe KBB Expert Review
sedan twosome is more dissimilar than the
Hyundai Genesis collection. The four-door Genesis is an entry-luxury sedan that starts at about $34,000, the two-door version is a less-lavish sports coupe that starts at about $23,000, and they look nothing alike inside or out. But we're fans of both. Available with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine or powerful V6, the
2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a viable alternative to a wide range of otherwise-unrelated cars that includes the
Honda Civic Si,
Ford Mustang and
Infiniti G Coupe.
You'll Like This Car If...
Compared to, for example, the Honda Civic Si, the four-cylinder 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T offers far bolder sheetmetal. In fully-loaded V6 form, the Genesis Coupe is a more affordable alternative to the Infiniti G Coupe. In all cases, the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is one fun, stylish ride.
You May Not Like This Car If...
The 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe doesn't offer the same levels of driving feel or overall refinement as proven sports coupes, such as the Civic Si or the pricier Infiniti G Coupe.
What's New for 2011
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 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe rides too harsh for some – which is exactly the kind of thing a performance-seeking buyer wants to hear. For those who would gladly trade some highway comfort for better handling and road-feel, the Genesis Coupe is at its very best when being tossed back and forth down a canyon road or around a racetrack. We had a chance to drive the 2.0T model with a manual transmission and the V6 with an automatic, and found both responsive. The shifting action of the manual transmission wasn't as refined or precise as we would have liked, but the unit worked well overall. The Genesis Coupe is fun to drive and can give more expensive coupes an honest run for their money.
Is there a more boldly styled car available for under $25,000? The 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is fun to drive and all, but it's the sharp sheetmetal that really sets it apart.
What's better than a sports car? A sportier one. The 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe can hang with some serious competition as is, but with a limited-slip differential, tighter suspension and bigger brakes, the Track and R-Spec trims are even more formidable.
The 2010 Genesis Coupe was dinged for a somewhat austere interior that didn't live up to the promise of the bold, overachieving sheetmetal. Hyundai wasted no time in addressing the issue. The 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe features softer, higher-quality materials throughout, plus some added chrome-finish trim pieces that tastefully liven up the joint. The front seats hold firmly and are comfortable even for longer rides; the small rear seat is at its best while hosting children and smaller adults.
The 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe wears the boldest, sportiest sheetmetal ever penned by the Korean automaker. Although the styling is aggressive, it's a look we think will withstand the test of time.
Notable Standard Equipment
At the starting sticker price, the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe features a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, six-speed manual transmission, 18-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth phone connectivity, air conditioning, power windows/locks/mirrors, auto headlights, AM/FM/CD/MP3/iPod/USB audio and remote keyless entry. Safety features for the Genesis Coupe include six airbags, electronic stability control (ESC) with traction control, ABS, electronic brake force distribution (EBD) and brake assist.
Notable Optional Equipment
A fully-loaded 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe features a 3.8-liter V6, six-speed automatic transmission, navigation system, 10-speaker premium audio system, power sunroof, keyless entry and start, backup warning system, auto climate control, heated leather seats and power driver's seat. Opting for Track or R-Spec trims nets a combination of the following: Limited-slip differential, track-tuned suspension, Brembo brakes, 19-inch alloy wheels and HID headlights.
Under the Hood
The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine has plenty of power throughout the rev range and operates smoothly with no hint of turbo lag. The 3.8-liter V6 is even silkier and more powerful, but the added weight forces a compromise in handling. Both engine choices offer their own advantages, and buyers will find either well-suited for daily and performance driving. The automatic transmission for the 2.0T is a five-speed, while that for the V6 is a six-speed.
2.0-liter Turbocharged In-line four
210 horsepower @ 6000 rpm
223 lb.-ft. of torque @ 2000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 21/30 (manual), 20/30 (automatic)
306 horsepower @ 6300 rpm
266 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4700 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 17/26 (manual), 17/27 (automatic)
The 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe starts at a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of just over $23,000 and tops out at about $33,000. To see what others are paying for their Genesis Coupes, be sure to check Kelley Blue Book's Fair Purchase Price before you shop around. We don't expect the Genesis Coupe to hold its resale value as steadfastly as a competitor like the
BMW 1 Series, for example, but Hyundai's days of prohibitively weak resale values are disappearing in its mirrors.
