2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Review
Reviewers said that the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has poised handling and a powerful available V6, but added that some other sports cars are more engaging to drive.
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has a standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and reviewers wrote that models with this engine have sprightly acceleration. However, many preferred the added power and acceleration of models equipped with the available V6. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and an eight-speed automatic is available. Test drivers liked the manual transmission's smooth clutch. However, they complained that the automatic is sometimes hesitant to downshift. A four-cylinder 2013 Genesis Coupe with the manual transmission has an EPA fuel economy estimate of 21/30 mpg city/highway, which is a bit lower than the ratings of other four-cylinder rivals. Some auto journalists noted that the Hyundai Genesis Coupe has poised handling and a balanced ride, but others mentioned that rivals like the Scion FR-S are more satisfying to drive, and a couple critics mentioned that the steering offers little feedback.
Reviewers found that the interior of the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has an attractive design and is built with quality materials. A handful of automotive journalists said the front seats are supportive and comfortable, however critics mentioned that headroom is limited for anyone taller than 6 feet and the rear seat is cramped. Reviewers said that the 10 cubic feet of trunk space is useful. Bluetooth and a USB port are standard, and features like navigation, a 10-speaker Infinity stereo system, leather seats and push-button start are available. Although reviewers liked the straightforward layout of the audio controls, some mentioned that the sound quality of the Infinity stereo system is lackluster.
Other Cars to Consider
The automotive press reported that the V8-powered 2013 Chevrolet Camaro SS and ZL1 have incredible acceleration, but others added that the base V6 models feel plenty potent too. Test drivers were pleased with the well-timed and quick shifts of the Camaro’s available automatic transmission.
The 2013 Subaru BRZ delighted reviewers with its communicative steering and athletic handling. They added that its front seats are incredibly supportive and offer a great view of the road ahead.
