Those prices reflect an increase of $2,000 over last year's car. Ouch! I guess Hyundai has finally decided to start charging what the Genesis Coupe is actually worth.
The previous 2.0T Track trim has been dropped, but the R-Spec has all of the track-related goodies.
with a Mustang GT Premium model starting at $33,710 ($710 more than the Hyundai) before options, the value winner here is clearly the Genesis Coupe, as long as the power deficit isn’t too much for you to swallow
We’re happy to see that the navinfotainment system in the Genesis coupe remains fully functional while underway
Car and Driver
Features have been improved on the 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, although Hyundai has arguably been pulling off a lot of 'price creep' the past several model years. Just this year, prices have been raised more than $2,000 so there's no claiming there's a bigger bang for the buck.
Those higher prices bring do bring more features, however, including standard fog lamps, cruise control, an auto-dimming inside mirror, and heated mirrors to all models--on top of Bluetooth, an iPod/USB interface, keyless entry, A/C, and a trip computer--and Hyundai Assurance Connected Car telematics are now included for three years if you get BlueLink services on upper trims.
On top 3.8 Grand Touring and Track models, as well as 2.0T Premium models, there's a seven-inch navigation system on offer; it includes the Blue Link suite of services, as well as HD Radio, XM NavTraffic, Bluetooth audio streaming, and integrated audio and climate controls.
The 3.8 Grand Touring is the pick, as the name suggests, for those who plan to tour in comfort; it adds full leather upholstery, heated seats, push-button start, a power driver seat, a nav system with live-traffic functions, and a backup warning system. Top-of-the-line 3.8 Track model, with the automatic transmission, only edges slightly above the $35k mark.
Step up to the R-Spec and you get a track-tuned suspension, 19-inch wheels on summer tires, Brembo brakes, a Torsen limited-slip diff, as well as appearance extras.
The 2014 Genesis Coupe has several guises -- from stylish commuter to track-ready tuner special or refined grand tourer -- but with prices edging upward it's no longer the bargain it was.
