Hyundai launches the new 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe with a surprisingly low base sticker price, but the company still crams quite a few standard features into even the most basic model.
The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is available in six total trims, three for each engine type, which are designated 2.0T, 2.0T Premium, 2.0T Track, 3.8, 3.8 Grand Touring, and 3.8 Track. Car and Driver reports that "the standard-equipment list is decent and includes a six-speed manual, power locks and windows, cruise control, stability control, a trip computer and stereo auxiliary jacks." Autoblog agrees that "all models are very well-equipped" and mentions that "an AM/FM/CD/MPS stereo with six speakers" is standard fare on the Hyundai Genesis Coupe. According to Edmunds reviewers, the Hyundai Genesis 2010 Coupe "2.0T Premium adds a power driver seat, keyless ignition, an Infinity audio system, a sunroof and an auto-dimming rearview mirror." TheCarConnection.com's research shows that the available Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T Track edition adds mostly performance equipment, but also includes xenon headlights and a pair of fog lamps. Moving up to the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Grand Touring brings "rear parking sensors, xenon headlights, foglights, heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals...a sunroof" and "heated front seats and the Infinity audio system," according to Edmunds.
For those who want a little extra technology inside the cabin of the Hyundai Genesis 2010 Coupe, The Detroit News reports that "Hyundai also includes lots of premium options." Fortunately, none of these options is particularly expensive, and most of them are simply the features available on the higher-end models. Autoblog remarks that "any of the option packages will automatically upgrade the audio to a 360-watt, ten-speaker, Infinity system," and they go on to list some of the options as "power/heated seats, proximity key, HID headlamps, a sunroof, and a backup warning system." Perhaps the only thing missing from the Hyundai Genesis Coupe's optional features list is a navigation system, but Automobile Magazine says that navigation "will become available later this year."
Few cars offer the combination of performance and value that the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe boasts.
