2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe vs. 2014 Nissan LEAF Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan LEAF than the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Genesis Coupe and the Nissan LEAF in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Genesis Coupe you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan LEAF, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan LEAF. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Genesis Coupe will cost more in transportation costs than the Nissan LEAF.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is much wider than the Nissan LEAF, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, which is slightly longer than the Nissan LEAF.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Nissan LEAF.

Handling
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe has a larger turning radius than the Nissan LEAF, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe has a much more powerful engine than the Nissan LEAF. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe has less seating than the Nissan LEAF, making the Nissan LEAF the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Hyundai Genesis Coupe has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan LEAF, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe than that of the Nissan LEAF.
