2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Interior
This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.
For 2011, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe features a refreshed interior with higher-quality materials and a more eye-catching design. Where it comes up short, however, is in rear seat headroom and limited cargo-carrying versatility.
- "All Genesis Coupe models get a refinished interior for 2011 with soft-touch, matte-finish surfaces and dark metal-grain accents on key bits and pieces, along with softer leather on the steering wheel and cloth-wrapping on the A-pillars. There's also new chrome trim on the shifter bezel, center stack knobs and gauge cluster rings." -- Autoblog
The Genesis Coupe seats four passengers. While reviewers find its seats comfortable, some assert that the rear seat lacks adequate headroom for adults. Shoppers interested in backseat room should check out the Mazda RX-8. Not only is space in its back seat practical, but its second set of doors make getting in and out a breeze.
- "The seats feel comfortable and supportive with good side bolstering." -- Road and Track
- "Perforated leather seats keep occupants from slipping around, while large side bolsters hold them in place in aggressive motoring. But those who designed the front seats misjudged the human body's ability to withstand one-size-fits-all headrests that poke most in the neck or melon rather than rest along the neck between shoulders and head." -- Chicago Tribune
- "There's enough legroom in back for six-footers, but the coupe's raked roofline means their noggins will be firmly planted against the hard rear glass." -- Automobile Magazine
- "There's enough capsule space for a pair of folding back seats with decent legroom, though Hyundai opted-wisely, we think-to favor a foxy roofline over adult-rated rear headroom." -- Car and Driver
The Genesis Coupe features such standard convenience features as a trip computer, air conditioning and an iPod-friendly six-speaker audio system. Premium, Grand Touring and Track models come equipped with a 360-watt Infinity AM/FM/CD audio system and subwoofer.
The 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe provides 10 cubic feet of cargo space. The only other vehicle in the class of Affordable Sports Cars to offer more is the Mitsubishi Eclipse coupe, with 15.7 cubic feet.
- "The trunk's high load floor and the one-piece folding rear seat's small pass-through limit cargo-carrying versatility." -- Automobile Magazine
- "Trunk space is adequate, but the opening is not very big. A lever in the trunk releases the rear seat back, but you have to lower it from inside the cabin to gain cargo space. No matter for that inconvenience; the tiny gap between trunk and cabin limits utility to golf clubs." -- Chicago Tribune
