2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

The decision for me came down to a used FR-S, Mini or Gencoupe. I chose a 22k miles Gencoupe for a lot of reasons. The head-turning styling, fantastic performance and interior trim all set the Gencoupe apart. The FR-S, with less HP and MUCH less torque, it looks great in the rear view mirror as you blow them away. Plus the Gencoupe has much more rear seat room for my kids. The Mini was the handling choice but lacks power. I love the wastegate chatter (I want to hear my turbo work!) but the turbo overall is not loud enough. The 6 speed tranny is fantastic- tight and precise, it's taken some time for me to learn to heel n toe with it (that's made a big difference in smoothness).


Best Features

-more rear seat room than most coupes -lots of power from an economical 4 banger -interior and exterior styling -heads turn -FUN to drive


Worst Features

-louder exhaust note -louder turbo sounds -less refined, more raw -nav, apps and more info on screen would be nice

2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

rarely do i ever write reviews but i was so compelled to write one for the 2013 genesis 2.0t. i see a ton of mixed reviews at least for the 2.0t. The 2.0t is an extremely fun car for 25k. Power from the 4 banger is more than adequate if you're not an enthusiast or a tuner. Car receives a ton of looks, love the fact that it's not a common car on the road yet, it gives you a sense of exclusivity. Handling is good can take corners relatively well, but by no means is it on the same level as an FRS/BRZ. i see a lot of concerns and complaints about the waste gate on the turbo rattling, my genesis has about 2500 with no issue so far (knocks on every piece of wood known to mankind) overall pleased


Best Features

100k warranty, the curvaceous sheet metal, interior LED tail lights, versatility from the turbo 4, decent gas mileage averaging about 23 city and hwy combine which translate to pumping gas every 6 to 7 days.


Worst Features

suspension and steering needs to be tuned a bit more, some materials in the cabin are a little sensitive to scratches, place the gauges in a more convenient location remove the faux hood vents

2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T Premium 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

This car is amazing. I purchased after doing months of research. The others I considered were the Nissan 370Z, Mustang GT, and BMW 128i coupe. This car has impressive handling, a spacious front for driver and passenger, instant power, and awesome styling. I recently drove on a 4 hour drive and got 30mpg. I almost chose the 370Z, but I wanted something that had more trunk space and the possibility of carrying more than 1 passenger. The back seat is tiny and some passengers will find they have claustrophobia, but I like it for the extra space for stuff and like knowing that I can fit up to 3 passengers legally. The trunk is huge. 2000 miles so far and I love it.


Best Features

Instant power, Trunk Space, Premium Package with Nav., Infinity Radio, Styling


Worst Features

Include a backup camera with the navigation package.

2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

A beautiful and comfortable ride ruined by terrible transmission and waste gate design. She's quick, relatively inexpensive, comfortable to ride in but she has a fatal flaw. She sounds like a bucket of bolts after three thousand miles. My friends think there's something broke but there isn't. The waste gate rattles loudly and the transmission grinds. Hyundai claims this is normal and won't do anything about it, essentially their build quality lacks.


Best Features

My favorite feature is when I pull up to people with their windows down and watch their stares of horror as they hear the awful tin can rattle of my waste gate, and the ratchety grinding my transmission makes. If you've ever been a fan of evoking people's sympathy, this is the car for you.


Worst Features

Hyundai get off their tails and fix their grinding transmission which they call normal and the bucket of bolts they call an electronic waste gate. This is a known problem for the vehicle...buyer beware!

Worst Features
