2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Grand Touring 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I used to sell Infinitis for a living and it's easy to see what the benchmark for this car is. For almost $20,000 less for a similarly equipped car, the Genesis is 95% of the way to a G37 Coupe. Yes, it does ride firm but it's a sports car. Being British, I'm probably more used to firm riding cars. The road noise is noticeable. I'm looking forward to changing to high performance tyres in the spring to see if that helps.


Favorite Features

The seats - very supportive and heated Handling - like it's on rails. Headlights - great range. Interior - Love the leather. Controls are nicely designed and not over-complicated. Fuel economy - 21mpg on average. Takes regular gasoline. Remote locking system.


Suggested Improvements

Adjustable height seat belts. More adjustment on passenger seat. Less intrusive traction control. LED rear lights. Memory seats at an option.

2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T Premium 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I bought my 2.ot in december and love this car, maybe should have gotten the v6, but still very happy. The acceleration is very nice for the size of the engine. I haven't noticed any of the turbo lag that many have noted, just learned the sweet spots I guess. Fit and finish is nice although I could do without the silver painted plastic masquerading as chrome. Looks are great, interior is well laid out and comfortable. Handling is great, ride is nice. Great car especially for the money


Favorite Features

Styling, fuel efficient turbo charged engine. Well laid out interior. Fit and finish.


Suggested Improvements

only one, replace the fake chrome painted plastic with real chrome or brushed aluminum.

2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Grand Touring 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

At $27k OTD, the 3.8 Grand Touring is a fantastic car if bought for the right reasons. The suspension and seats are very firm (yes, even non- Track versions)- this, coupled with road noise, can make long trips tiring. Performance, handling, and visibility are top-notch and the interior is well appointed with excellent design, fit, and finish. Nav w/ integrated stereo is awesome for Ipod/music control but screen is a touch too small for the nav. The clutch and 6-spd are VERY quirky making the car very difficult to drive smoothly- would DEFINITELY recommend the automatic even though I am a 6-spd lover. Overall, VERY fun to drive around town but not a long-distance cruiser. Would buy it again.


Favorite Features

Power, visibility, handling, and braking are all tops. Nav w/ Ipod controls is intuitive and easy to use. Open sunroof is very quiet, even at highway speed. The camel-colored leather of the GT is gorgeous- head rests are tops. Everything is within easy reach in cockpit. Very quiet for WIND noise.


Suggested Improvements

SOUND ISOLATION FROM ROAD NOISE!!! Clutch is very quirky- gear ratios are almost too close. Hood is slightly misaligned with fenders. Rear seat vents to reduce front-to-rear convection currents in cold weax- you can feel cool air moving around. Soften the ride a bit. Ipod discharges when car is off.

2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T Premium 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Love my Genesis Coupe; I purchased the 2.0T premium last August and upgraded to leather heated seats (love em). I was in a head on collision this week, hit a SUV that came across my lane at about 50 mph - I got out of the car and walked away w/out a scratch (people in SUV had to be taken by ambulance). Very pleased with the safety. I will be looking for another one. Fun to drive - some road noise on highway but that is the same with most sports cars. Highly recommend the Genesis Coupe.


Favorite Features

safety features, seats, everything!


Suggested Improvements

doors automatically lock when you start it or when put in gear.

2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Grand Touring 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Love the car overall but it does have limitations. Car handles and drives great and looks even better. Love the saddle leather interior though seats are very firm. Ride is a little rough, when coupled with road noise makes any trip over an hour tiresome with back/butt aches. GT was $27k out the door (incl the $500 military rebate), VERY well equipped for the price. Cockpit feel is great with everything within easy reach but has limited storage. Clutch is VERY hard to master- HATE IT! Very difficult to shift smoothly w/o skipping gears to improve smoothness(i.e. going 1-3-5 or 2-4-6 instead of 1,2,3,4...). Was a die-hard 6-spd guy, now I'm cured. Nav is easy to use but screen is a tad bit small


Favorite Features

Great visibility for a sports coupe. Nav is easy to use and love the integrated Ipod/stereo controls. Car handles like it's on rails with solid braking and acceleration. Love the cockpit feel with everything in reach. Love the keyless entry with push- button start. Also like the Home Link system.


Suggested Improvements

Clutch/6-spd stinks!! Shoulda bought the auto. Definitely needs MUCH more sound isolation for road noise. Stereo sound isn't as high-end as I'd hoped. Ipod cable drains your Ipod while car is off- no big deal if you leave the Ipod in the car permanently but sucks if you don't. Poor fit around hood.
