With the 2013 model year coming into full swing, Hyundai has finally fully entrenched itself into the performance coupe world with its range of Genesis Coupe models. There are six main trim levels for the 2013 Genesis Coupe, and they are: 2.0T, 2.0T R-Spec, 2.0T Premium, 3.8 R-Spec, 3.8 Grand Touring and 3.8 Track.
The 2.0T model acts as the base model for the entire lineup and still features stout performance, as it hits 60 mph in just 6 seconds, and gets 30 mpg. The 2.0T R-Spec adds in some extra performance components – primarily handling – but its limited-slip differential drops as much as 0.3 seconds form the 2.0T’s 0-to-60 time while maintaining 30 mph highway. The 2.0T Premium drop all of the R-Specs performance additions and replaces them with things like leather interior and a premium sound system. The 3.8 R-Spec adds in the 348-horsepwoer, 3.8-liter V-6 engine that drops the 0-to-60 time to 5.3 seconds while netting the Genesis 27 mpg highway, plus it has all of the same performance additions as the 2.0T R-Spec. The 3.8 Grand Touring drops all of the performance additions and replaces them with them with premium features, like tan or black leather and a 360-watt stereo. The range-topping trim, the 3.8 Track, combines the 3.8 R-Spec and 3.8 Premium trims and adds in HID lights, aero wipers and a spoiler.

The 2013 Hyundai Genesis 2.0T acts as the base level for the Genesis Coupe lineup and it features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that pumps out 274 horsepower and 275 foot-pounds of torque. The 2.0T trim level’s engine hooks up to a six-speed manual transmission that tosses the power to the rear wheels and has an optional eight-speed automatic transmission for an extra $1,250. On the outside it comes standard with four0wheel ABS, traction control, stability control, electric brake-force distribution, sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch Euroflange alloy wheels, projector headlights, daytime running lights, automatic headlights, LED taillights, power mirrors and keyless entry. On the inside the 2013 Genesis 2.0T includes: 170-watt, six-speaker sound system with MP3, CD and SiriusXM capabilities, air conditioning, power windows and door locks, outdoor temperature gauge, iPod and USB connectivity, black cloth seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, cruise control with steering-wheel mounted controls, Bluetooth connectivity, and electroluminescent gauge cluster.
The 2.0T Premium trim level acts as the top level of the 2.0T lineup, as it takes away some the performance upgrades that the R-Spec gives it and replaces them with more comfort and convenience features. The Premium trim level eliminates the standard six-speed manual and replaces it with the eight-speed automatic as its base transmission. On the outside, the 2.0T Premium trim level includes all of the features that the 2.0T trim features, plus a power sunroof. On the inside it boasts the same features and the base 2.0T, plus: proximity key entry with push-button start, automatic climate control, 360-watt Infinity premium sound system with 10 speakers, navigation system with touchscreen, grey leather interior with grey cloth inserts on the seats and door panels, power driver seat with lumbar adjustment, Hyundai’s Blue Link Telematics System, electrochromic rearview mirror, compass, and HomeLink.
The 2.0T R-Spec acts as the performance-oriented model within the 2.0T range, as it adds in more performance components and deletes several comfort items that the 2.0T boasts. The R-Spec trim drops the steering-wheel-mounted cruise control, optional eight-speed automatic transmission and automatic headlights found on the 2.0T. On the outside it adds in a slew of performance items, including: Torsen limited-slip differential, track-tuned suspension, Brembo brakes with four-piston calipers and vented rotors, and 19-inch Euroflange alloy wheels wrapped in 225/40YR19 tires up front and 245/40YR19 tires out back. On the inside, the R-Spec package scraps the black cloth seats and replaces them with red leather seats with red cloth inserts on the seats and door panels.

Nimble, but 0.6 seconds slower to 60 mph than the Genesis 2.0T.

Competitively priced and plenty of power, but poorly equipped at its base level.
