2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Review

Besides its powerful V6 engine, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe offers little compared to rivals. It ranks near the bottom of the sports car class due to underwhelming handling, an imprecise manual transmission, a poor reliability rating, and cheap cabin materials.  

Pros & Cons

  • Powerful V6
  • Rubbery manual transmission
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Low predicted reliability rating

2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Overview

Is the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe a Good Used Car?

The 2015 Hyundai Genesis is a competent sports car for buyers seeking moderate fun behind the wheel. It offers a strong V6 engine, composed handling, and a comfortable ride with its standard suspension. However, there are several rivals that offer livelier performance, a nicer interior, a lower total cost of ownership, and a higher reliability rating.

Used 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Performance and Interior

With its 348-horsepower V6 engine, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe offers plenty of power for most drivers. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, but its inaccurate and rubbery shifts can make for a frustrating drive. You’re better off looking for models that come with the quick-shifting available eight-speed automatic transmission. Models with the automatic transmission return an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, which is below-average for a V6-powered sports car.

Through a turn, the rear-wheel-drive 2015 Genesis Coupe feels confident and steady, but most competitors offer more engaging driving dynamics. However, the Hyundai’s comfortable ride makes it a great companion for day-to-day driving – unless you opt for a model with the firmer available suspension.

The Genesis Coupe’s interior design is good-looking, but the cabin’s overall appeal is diminished by down-market materials, including lots of hard plastics. The Hyundai Genesis Coupe seats four, and passengers up front can enjoy plenty of head- and legroom. Like most sports cars, however, the Genesis Coupe’s back seats are best suited for children or as storage. There are two complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors on the rear outboard seats.

Standard features in the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe include Bluetooth, push-button start, a USB port, and satellite radio. Some used models may come with features like a sunroof or a 7-inch touch-screen navigation system.

Should I Consider Another Used Genesis Coupe?

The 2015 Genesis Coupe is a part of the car’s first generation, which began with the 2010 model year and concluded with the 2016 model year – its final year of production. Although earlier models may be less expensive, it’s best to stick to the 2015 model (or later), as it received a new standard V6 engine to replace previous models’ turbo-four.

Which Used Hyundai Genesis Coupe Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Genesis Coupe comes in three trims: 3.8 (base), 3.8 R-Spec, and 3.8 Ultimate. The Genesis Coupe 3.8 trim comes with automatic climate control, Bluetooth, a proximity key, push-button start, a six-speaker audio system, a USB port, and satellite radio. The Genesis Coupe R-Spec adds some performance-enhancing features like track-tuned springs, Brembo brakes, and a limited-slip differential. It also comes with a firmer suspension that isn’t recommended for day-to-day driving. The top-of-the-line Genesis Coupe 3.8 Ultimate includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system with navigation, a 10-speaker Infinity stereo, HD Radio, auto-leveling HID headlights, a rear spoiler, and a sunroof.

If you have concerns about buying a used car, you should consider a certified pre-owned model. Certified pre-owned Hyundai vehicles receive the balance of the original new-car 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Hyundai CPO vehicles must pass a 150-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read Hyundai’s warranty page carefully.

2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe or 2015 Scion FR-S?

The Scion FR-S is a better buy than the Genesis Coupe. The FR-S’ cabin features attractive styling and comfortable front seats. It has a weaker base engine than the Genesis Coupe, but it earns better fuel economy estimates. Additionally, the FR-S received good crash results and has a slightly better reliability rating and a lower cost of ownership than the Genesis Coupe. The Scion FR-S also has agile handling and a smooth-shifting manual transmission.

Which Is Better: 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe or 2015 Nissan 370Z?

Both cars offer powerful V6 engines that earn poor fuel economy estimates. They also have some low-rent cabin materials. However, the 370Z is the better performance car, with its agile handling. It also has a better reliability rating, a smooth-shifting manual transmission, and a more powerful available 350-horsepower V6 engine.
