The rear bumper has a black-clad diffuser and sporty exhaust tips. Standard features include front fog lights, a dual-pipe exhaust system, power/heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators.

Fuel economy for the Genesis Coupe is an EPA-estimated 16/25 mpg city/highway. The rating lowers slightly to 16/24 mpg with the manual.

The center stack features the standard Hyundai Blue Link multimedia system that includes a new 6-inch dashboard screen, CD/MP3 playback, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, a satellite radio, and a USB port.
