Overview: Hyundai might not be the first brand that comes to mind when shopping for a sporty rear-drive car, yet the Genesis coupe is in the mix. Serious fun for the money is available whether fitted with a turbocharged 274-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a direct-injected 348-hp V-6. A six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission is offered.

Downsides: a small trunk and a cramped rear seat. Instrumented Test 2013 Hyundai Genesis 2.0T / 3.8 R-Spec Coupe

2013  (2013 First Generation, 2010Present)

Hyundai did its homework and engineered the Genesis coupe to compete with established players in the sports-coupe market. Its low-slung silhouette with aggressive front styling sets the tone, but the real beauty lies under the skin.

The coupe shares premium Genesis sedan components, including a rear-wheel-drive platform, a multilink independent rear suspension, and longitudinally mounted powertrains.

Choices include the 2.0T fitted with a 274-hp twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder in base, R-Spec, and Premium models. It delivers minimal turbo lag accompanied by a raucous exhaust note. The 3.8 employs the Genesis sedan’s smooth 3.8-liter direct-injected V-6 with 348 hp in R-Spec, Grand Touring, and Track versions. We hit 60 mph in 5.2 seconds and scored a 13.8-second quarter-mile at 104 mph with a 3.8 R-Spec.

The availability of a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission varies by model.

Brembo brakes, a Torsen limited-slip differential, a track-tuned suspension, and 19-inch wheels with sticky summer-compound tires are standard on R-Spec and Track models. Upscale features such as a navigation system and Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics are fitted to the Premium, Grand Touring, and Track. The Genesis coupe’s cabin is a cozy place to conduct business, with its sport bucket seats, nicely crafted fit and finish, and electroluminescent gauge cluster with information display.

2010: The Genesis coupe is an entirely new Hyundai, blending dynamic styling with rear-drive architecture derived from the Genesis sedan. Standard on the 2.0T is a 210-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine; the 3.8 sports a 306-hp, 3.8-liter V-6 borrowed from the sedan. Transmission choices are a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic.

2011: A minor interior refresh includes soft-touch surfaces, and the 3.8 R-Spec is added to the lineup. 2013: A refreshed design gains more aggressive front styling. Direct injection increases the V-6’s output to 348 hp, and a twin-scroll turbo boosts the 2.0-liter to 274 hp.

An eight-speed automatic replaces the previous six-speed auto.
