Even though it comes from Hyundai, the Genesis Coupe follows the traditional sport coupe formula set by its American and European competitors. It's a lean rear-driver with a big V6 engine, aggressive handling and a body that appeals to the teenager in everyone. The Genesis doesn't apologize for wanting to have fun, and neither do the drivers who seek it out.

The four-cylinder turbo engine has been dropped, and the mid-level R-Spec model gains some standard equipment.
Choosing Your Hyundai Genesis Coupe
All models come standard with the previously optional 3.8-liter V6, which puts out an impressive 348 horsepower. You have a choice of six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmissions. Expect to go from zero to 60 mph in a tick over 5 seconds with either setup.

That said, if you must have high-class interior appointments, the Ultimate is the only way to go.
