2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe vs. 2016 Volkswagen Golf Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Golf 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 Golf.

Convenience
The Volkswagen Golf requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, making it more convenient to drive.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Golf, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Golf.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is much wider than the Volkswagen Golf, 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 Golf.

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 Golf.

Handling
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Golf, 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 Golf. 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 Volkswagen Golf, making the Volkswagen Golf the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Hyundai Genesis Coupe has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Golf, 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 Golf.
