Used Car: 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Review

Review Last Updated: 4/22/13

The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe ranks near the bottom of the class due to a low reliability score and underpowered base engine.

The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is ranked:

The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has a standard 201-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and manual transmission. A 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 306 horsepower and an automatic transmission are available. The Genesis Coupe can get up to 21/30 mpg depending on the model, which is one of the higher fuel economy ratings in the class. Test drivers liked the Genesis Coupe’s responsive automatic transmission and six-cylinder engine. On the other hand, they disliked the base engine’s lack of power. Some test drivers said the Genesis Coupe has sporty handling, but others disagreed.

Reviewers liked the interior fit and finish and comfortable seats in the Genesis Coupe. Most said the back seat is roomy enough for adults, though some critics wrote that back-seat headroom is in short supply. The Genesis Coupe has 10 cubic feet of trunk space, which is typical for an affordable sports car. Standard features on the Genesis Coupe include keyless entry, air conditioning, full power accessories, cruise control, Bluetooth, a USB port and audio system with a CD player. Available features on the Genesis Coupe include a power driver’s seat, keyless ignition, a sunroof, automatic climate control, leather upholstery and rear parking sensors. The stripped-down performance 2.0T R-Spec model has fewer standard tech features to lower its weight, but adds a sport-tuned suspension and upgraded brakes.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2010 Ford Mustang ranks highly among affordable sports cars, and it offers stellar safety and reliability scores. Reviewers liked the Mustang’s powerful base engine and smooth automatic transmission.

Test drivers liked the 2010 Mazda RX-8’s interior design, and noted that adults could fit comfortably in the back seat. The RX-8 also has a higher reliability score than the Genesis Coupe.
