Hyundai Genesis Coupe Models and Genesis Coupe History

Hyundais first rear-wheel drive coupe, the Genesis Coupe premiered in late 2009 as a 2010 model year vehicle. Despite sharing a name and platform with Hyundais premium sedan, the Genesis Coupe appealed to an affordable sport vehicle market to replace the Tiburon. Hyundai forged the 2+2 passenger sport coupes shape after several concept cars exhibited years prior. Base power for the 2010 Genesis Coupe came from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder power unit generating 212 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission came standard while a five-speed automatic was available on the four-cylinder model. The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe was not offered with the V-8 engine found on the Genesis sedan but did receive the 3.8-liter V-6 powerplant as an option. Producing 290 horsepower, the six-cylinder engine was offered with a six-speed automatic transmission.

 

Designed primarily for front seat riders, the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupes cabin came standard with six airbags, remote keyless entry, air conditioning and a six-speaker stereo system with CD player as well as MP3 compatibility. Four-cylinder and six-cylinder versions of the Genesis Coupe came in several trim levels. A Track trim level added a body-color matching spoiler, fog lights and aluminum pedals for enhanced sport credibility. The 2011 model year for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe came brought several improvements to materials used for the interior of the sport coupe.

 

Along with an enhanced 306-horsepower 3.8-liter V-6 engine, the larger powerplant version of the Genesis Coupe was offered with the R-Spec performance and handling package previously offered only with the 2.0-liter turbo. Power for the Genesis Coupe was increased again in 2013 with the four-cylinder engine producing 274 horsepower while the V-6 engine generated 348 horsepower. For 2014, fog lights, cruise control and HomeLink arrived standard on all models.
