Expert Quotes:

Considering the price—always considering the price—Hyundai has bull’s-eyed the target, starting with specs that are right for enthusiasts.
Car and Driver

more crucial to the R-Spec package is not what was added, but rather what was deleted
Winding Road

The perforated leather seats are a plus, and the climate and audio controls are especially easy to reach and use.
Consumer Reports

Adding the Track Package with sport suspension, Brembo brakes, 19-inch wheels and sport seats turns the Genesis Coupe into a bargain performance car
MSN Autos


The Genesis Coupe continues the brand's tradition of packing a long list of standard features—a few more than in rival vehicles—with a surprisingly low base sticker price.

Six trims are offered, including three for each engine type, which are designated 2.0T, 2.0T Premium, 2.0T R-Spec, 3.8 R-Spec, 3.8 Grand Touring, and 3.8 Track.

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.

For 2011, in addition to new soft-touch surfaces throughout the cabin, the Genesis Coupe gets a new trunklid grab handle and rear coat hooks, along with a new standard navigation system and automatic climate control for the 2.0T Premium and new multi-information display graphics throughout the lineup.

Base 2.0T models come with a long list of standard features, including power windows, locks, and mirrors; iPod and USB connectivity; steering-wheel audio controls; cruise control; Bluetooth; and a trip computer. The 2.0T Premium gets a power driver's seat, push-button start, and a sunroof, in addition to the climate and nav extras, while R-Spec models are set up for the track, with a stiffer suspension, Torsen limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes, and sport seats and trim. And to save weight, R-Spec models delete cruise control automatic headlights, and some interior trim.

Moving up to the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Grand Touring gets you luxury-caliber extras like xenon headlamps, an Infinity premium audio system, fog lamps, heated side mirrors, heated seats, and full leather upholstery.

Conclusion

Among sporty coupes, there's nothing missing here—and the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is one of the best values in its class.

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.
