Buying Tips:

The residual values of Hyundai models continue to rise, meaning you can consider leasing a 2010 Genesis Coupe at attractive monthly payments.

The standard audio system for every 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe includes iPod jacks, a USB input, and Bluetooth connectivity. A 300-watt Infinity audio system is available, as are heated seats. Additional model packages (Premium, Grand Touring, Track, and R-Spec) group features as their names imply. The R-Spec is particularly interesting, as it provides genuine track-readiness in an affordable package just waiting for enthusiasts to modify.

Other Choices:

If you like the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, also consider:

  • Scion tC
  • Honda Accord Coupe
  • Chevrolet Camaro
  • Infiniti G37

Reason Why:

Because of its price, range of engines, and performance, the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe faces off against a variety of competitors. At the low end, shoppers looking at the Scion tC could move up to the fresh shape and rear-wheel-drive performance. Honda Accord Coupe shoppers could look to the Hyundai for sportier handling and more style, but they'd sacrifice some refinement and their addiction to the Honda name. More than the Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro V-6 gives the Genesis Coupe a run for the money in the value category, with the least-expensive Chevy starting for about $23,000. The Genesis looks less macho next to any of the reconstituted nameplates from Detroit, and V-8s still rule when it comes to ultimate performance bragging rights. There is also the chance that G37 shoppers might consider the Genesis because the two cars are so close in power, but the Infiniti is silkier and more refined. You get what you pay for, in this case.

The Bottom Line:

For $22,000, the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0t represents a heck of a performance value.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
