2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Overview

The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has a standard 201-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and manual transmission. A 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 306 horsepower and an automatic transmission are available. The Genesis Coupe can get up to 21/30 mpg depending on the model, which is one of the higher fuel economy ratings in the class. Test drivers liked the Genesis Coupe’s responsive automatic transmission and six-cylinder engine. On the other hand, they disliked the base engine’s lack of power. Some test drivers said the Genesis Coupe has sporty handling, but others disagreed.

Reviewers liked the interior fit and finish and comfortable seats in the Genesis Coupe. Most said the back seat is roomy enough for adults, though some critics wrote that back-seat headroom is in short supply. The Genesis Coupe has 10 cubic feet of trunk space, which is typical for an affordable sports car. Standard features on the Genesis Coupe include keyless entry, air conditioning, full power accessories, cruise control, Bluetooth, a USB port and audio system with a CD player. Available features on the Genesis Coupe include a power driver’s seat, keyless ignition, a sunroof, automatic climate control, leather upholstery and rear parking sensors. The stripped-down performance 2.0T R-Spec model has fewer standard tech features to lower its weight, but adds a sport-tuned suspension and upgraded brakes.
