2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe vs. 2013 Volkswagen Golf R Review

Comparison Review


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

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 Golf R, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Golf R. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Golf R.

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

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Golf R.

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