2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe vs. 2014 Volkswagen Beetle Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Beetle than the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Genesis Coupe will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Beetle.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Genesis Coupe as you will with the Volkswagen Beetle, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Beetle. 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 Volkswagen Beetle.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is much wider than the Volkswagen Beetle, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen Beetle.

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 Volkswagen Beetle.

Handling
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Beetle, 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 Volkswagen Beetle. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Genesis Coupe and the Volkswagen Beetle. The Hyundai Genesis Coupe has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Beetle, 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 Volkswagen Beetle.
