2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Review

(4 Stars)  Takes on Camaro and Mustang

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Genesis Coupe was a huge surprise from the Hyundai and the rumors of its production had built a huge amount of anticipation in the auto industry. Never before has this economy sedan maker offered a rear wheel drive coupe that is offers some serious power. The Genesis Coupe offers a totally different driving experience than the standard Genesis. With a wheel base of only 110 inches and a total length of only 182 inches, this vehicle reaches into the size and performance levels of modern Mustangs. The Genesis Coupe comes equipped with an intercooled turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine offering 210 horsepower or up to 306 horsepower in the 3.8 liter V-6.

The many trim levels offer a giant range of features and options packages to equip this little sports coupe with all sorts of high end add-ons and some very nice design variations. The 2.0T model will be the base model that offers the most affordability, but with many engine upgrade options this is just a starting point for most consumers wanting to unleash the real power of this sports coupe.
