Lining the streets of America, the Korean carmaker, Hyundai, has taken the industry by storm creating affordable, reliable (although this point is questioned by many), and attractive vehicles. Among their recent line of vehicles is the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, a stylish vehicle that is priced comparably to the Mustang, yet looks like it could be part of the Nissan Z or Infiniti G Series.

Hyundai has been known in past years as the automobile manufacturer that cares only about price. If you stand by that saying, you wouldn’t be lying when you’re looking at the Hyundai Genesis Coupe as a test subject. Priced at an affordable base of $22,000, the Genesis rubs competitors faces in the dirt.

The interior of the Genesis Coupe is a dream come true for people who desire comfort and style. The two front seats are sporty heated bucket seats that have been said to be some of the most comfortable seats in all comparable vehicles.

While the exterior of the vehicle is similar looking to the Nissan Z and Infiniti G, the handling of the vehicle is similar as well; something that the Korean automaker is not known for. The coupe offers tight steering, something that nearly all sports vehicles have.

But despite a sporty interior and tight handling, the Genesis Coupe doesn’t even come close to comparing to the Mustang, Nissan Z, or Infiniti G when it comes down to engine size and horsepower. The base model offers a mere 2.0 L Turbo engine that can push out 210 hp. Although the vehicle might not be able to perform well on the race track, due to its low cost and small engine, auto insurance prices are quite affordable.
