2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Overview
- Sporty two-door four-seater; sedan versions of the Genesis covered separately
- Rear-wheel drive; six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission
- Updated in 2013 with new styling and more powerful engines
Not to be confused with the luxurious Genesis sedan, the 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe opts for a different, sportier path.
The rear-wheel drive Genesis Coupe got an extensive update in 2013 that included new exterior styling and power upgrades to its two engine options, a turbocharged four-cylinder and a V-6. The styling changes make the Genesis Coupe fit in better with the rest of Hyundai’s offerings. Its large, gaping hexagonal grille is blacked out and aggressive, flanked by dramatic halogen headlight clusters and large fog lights on premium models. 18-inch alloy wheels are standard, with 19-inch alloy wheels and high performance tires optional. The Track model adds a rear spoiler, aero wiper blades, and high-intensity discharge xenon headlights.
Under the hood, a 274-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that is paired with a six-speed manual transmission is standard. The optional engine is a powerful 348-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 that uses the same six-speed manual. Both models can be upgraded to an eight-speed electronic automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
The four-cylinder Genesis Coupe is rated at 19/27 mpg city/highway with the manual transmission, 17/27 with the automatic. The V-6 follows at 16/24 mpg city/highway with the manual (automatic models get one better mpg on the highway).
Cloth seating and manual air conditioning come standard in the Genesis Coupe, and leather interior, heated seats, and automatic temperature control are available upgrades. The audio system features iPod/USB and auxiliary inputs standard. A touch-screen navigation system, automatic cruise control and Hyundai’s Blue Link technology for smart phone integration are available. Styling options include a leather-wrapped steering wheel/shift knob and sporty aluminum foot pedals. Bluetooth hands-free calling is included with all models, as are steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.
On-road safety features include electronic stability and traction control, four-wheel antilock braking with brake assist, and a Brembo braking system is available on some models. Active front head restraints, six airbags, and front and rear crumple zones provide additional peace of mind to in the event of a collision.
