The new front-end styling gives the car a more aggressive look, to which it is most certainly entitled.

the Genesis looks light-years better—and bigger—in the flesh than in photographs
Car and Driver


With last year's redesign, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe didn't get a reformulation; rather it became more focused, better detailed, and more visually appealing in all the ways that the original car released a few years earlier had promised but didn't quite deliver up close. In short, it's as if Hyundai were presenting a higher-resolution version of its sports coupe.

On the outside is where the Genesis Coupe saw the most change last year. Overall, the new exterior looks smartly at home next to sedan models like the Elantra or Sonata—or even the new Veloster coupe—yet there's no mistaking that this is the assertive, slung-back profile of a rear-wheel-drive coupe.

With its blacked out grille and lower air dam, combined with all-new lower aero work, running lamps, and fog lamps, the Coupe got a visually wider look in front (without the dimensions actually changing much). Enhancing those visual tricks are headlights have been reshaped and detailed, and a recontoured hood with dual air intakes up by the cowl.

From the side, two rising ripples in the sheetmetal almost meet to create a Z-shaped component at the back of the side doors, while the window line itself, which drops just a slight bit at the rear window (and actually meets up with one of the ripples).

Taillamps are now packed with LEDs, and they have new contouring, but in back the Genesis Coupe has changed the least. And there's an all-new lineup of 18- and 19-inch wheel designs that are more (and more deeply) styled. The Genesis Coupe's color palette has been revamped, too, with five new exterior colors and a new cloth interior scheme.

Changes were a little less dramatic inside, but it arguably didn't need it as much there. The cockpit-like layout of the 2014 Genesis Coupe and a hooded gauge cluster set a serious mood, while a neat center-stack design, soft upper dash pad, and piano-black finish altogether keep the ambiance upscale.

Conclusion

Ripped and refined, the 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe stands out, while also looking just mature enough.

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.
