The Hyundai Genesis Coupe, even now that its turbo four has been dropped from the lineup, occupies an interesting value-focused area of the coupe market.
It overlaps with some of the sportiest two-doors yet also covers some of the same ground as those with more of an emphasis on luxury.
The Ford Mustang, with its 2.3-liter turbocharged four, has already claimed part of what the Genesis Coupe gave up.
And the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is also heading in that direction, with a turbocharged four on offer.
Far more expensive alternatives include the BMW 435i and Infiniti Q60, although both are more refined in both their ride and handling characteristics.
Back at the bargain end of the market, the Honda Civic Coupe is a new rival (with a new Si slated to arrive soon).
The Nissan 370Z might be the most direct rival, although it has a much choppier ride and serious road-noise issues.
The Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S are also threats to the Genesis Coupe; they sacrifice straight-line brute force for a nimble, light, and balanced feel that's confidence-inspiring.
