Why the Genesis Coupe?

The 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a luxury car at a bargain price. It is available in base, R-Spec and Ultimate trim levels, all featuring a 3.8L V6 engine delivering 348 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, a choice of 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmissions, and rear-wheel drive. The powerful engine is a willing performer, higher trims feature a firmer suspension, and the R-Spec model is equally at home on road and track.


The Hyundai Genesis brings you the looks of a European exotic at a great price. Heads turn at the Coupe's bold grille, contoured sheetmetal, wedge-shaped silhouette and short overhangs front and aft. All trims include fog lights, automatic headlights, LED running lights and 18-inch wheels. Stepping up to the R-Spec gives you 19-inch wheels, larger brakes, and a limited-slip differential. The top-of-the-line Ultimate model adds leather upholstery, sunroof and xenon headlights.


The Genesis cabin is roomy and upscale, with a handsome dashboard that features electroluminescent gauges and a leather-rimmed, tilt/telescoping steering wheel. New for 2016 is a bright 6-inch color display in the center stack. The comfortable seats are amply bolstered, available in cloth or leather upholstery. Other interior features include audio controls mounted on the steering wheel, paddle shifters for models equipped with an automatic transmission, and power driver's seat. Hyundai engineered the rear to seat two comfortably rather than shoehorn three. A walk-in assist feature and large door openings ease access to the second row.


The 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, especially in Ultimate trim, is unusually well equipped for its price. The standard and available features include a premium 360W,10-speaker Infinity stereo system with a subwoofer, external amplifier, Sirius XM and HD Radio, USB/iPod audio inputs, navigation, auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated mirrors, power windows and locks, and cruise control. The Blue Link telematics system keeps you connected to the rest of the world, while allowing you to receive and dictate texts, locate the lowest-priced gas stations and even tell you if someone has secretly driven your car.


Safety is built into the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, starting with a sophisticated high-strength steel frame with strategically positioned side-impact door beams and crumple zones. Airbags include driver, passenger, front head curtain and front side units. The Genesis Coupe comes standard with active head restraints that limit whiplash, driver-selectable Traction Control System as well as Electronic Stability Control that can be switched off for track work. An available Torsen limited-slip differential balances power to the rear wheels for maximum stability and grip on slippery surfaces. Parking sensors are embedded in the rear bumpers to warn you of obstacles behind you.
