Hyundai set to take on the roads with new Genesis Coupe

Naturally the Genesis Coupe is for the active and younger crowd and hence its 2.0 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder engine comes with 210 horses. If you like, you can go for the higher top range version which is fitted with a 3.8 liter V6 engine which gives you a whopping 306 horsepowers. All variants come with a 6 speed manual transmission gearbox while the 2.0T versions do have an automatic version available. This car is one which is Hyundai intends to compete in the already crowded American market but essentially, there really aren’t much flaws with this car in design terms.

Coming from a sports car point of view, the Genesis do not give you much space. This car is typically a 2 seater, very much like the Cooper or any other Coupe cars for that matter. Hence, you would not like to put any passengers in the backseat but for kids, that might work. But then again, those who like this car would most likely be the younger professionals, so 2 adults in this car is pretty comfortable for now. The engulfing sitting position of the car also makes driving pretty fun.

There are a few variants available in the Genesis Coupe but the entry level 2.0T version comes with fittings like cruise control, a Bluetooth and MP3 player with USB connectivity controllable from the steering wheels, 18 inch alloy wheels, sunroof, an Infinity powered sound system as well as keyless entry. If you go one level higher, which is the 2.0T Track version, the tyres get an inch bigger, Brembo brakes, a sports suspension system and xenon headlights. Of course, the higher range 3.8 liter V6 comes with all of the above plus automatic climate control and cool looking black leathers in the interior. Go to the top of it all, the 3.8 Grand Touring is where you get additions like heated side mirrors, keyless ignition and more cool features.

With all that in place and the little space left for improvements, this car has pretty much the right ingredients to take it to the roads. Essentially, Hyundai have it figured out in this one. {mosimage} {mosimage} {mosimage} {mosimage} {mosimage}
