2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The four-seat Hyundai Genesis coupe comes with a standard V-6 engine that works with a manual or automatic transmission. It has rear-wheel drive and competes against sporty cars as divergent as the Ford Mustang and Honda Civic Si.

New for 2015

The turbo four-cylinder engine has been dropped, leaving the 348-horsepower V-6 as the standard and only engine. LED daytime running lights are newly standard. The 3.8 R-Spec model gains a proximity key with push-button start and automatic climate control.

Below is a list of highlighted features and not an exhaustive list. Features are standard unless otherwise noted.

Feels awesome to drive.

The car is great & comfortable especially for a sports car. It’s about as fast as you could want for the price & style of the car. It’s a fun car to own.

Fun Reliable Cheap

This car cost 3 grand less than a used civic or Camry at similar age and mileage but comes with the bonus of about 340 hp to the crank and 290 ft/lbs of torque and solid options even in the base model. It is definitely NOT a distance driver as it can be uncomfortable for long journeys and gas mileage can vary wildly. Cruising on the interstate was netting me 25-28 mpg but that easily drops to like 14 when driving "enthusiastically". The exterior styling seems to be divisive with car enthusiasts, but hey, we can't all have great taste. 10/10 guess I'm a Koreaboo now

One of my favorite cars

Absolutely love driving this car. Tasteful styling with plenty of performance. Truly one of my favorite cars on the road . The only modification I did was make the hood vents functional.
