2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Interior
This interior review was written when the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe was new.
The 2013 Genesis Coupe has an updated interior that reviewers favor over the outgoing 2012 model. An updated center stack and higher-quality materials earn reviewer praise, while standard tech features make even the 2013 Genesis Coupe fairly well-equipped. While these updates are generally well-received, some reviewers note that headroom is in short supply for taller drivers.
- "The cabin of the Genesis Coupe boasts an alluring mix of eye-catching contours and generally high-quality materials." -- Edmunds
- "Upgrades in interior materials, as well as telematics, enhance the appeal of these sophisticated coupes." -- Popular Mechanics
The Genesis Coupe seats four people, and while reviewers find its front seats comfortable, some assert that taller drivers may want more headroom. Additionally, the rear seats are best left to kids since the Coupe’s sloping roofline cuts into back-seat headroom. If you need more room, check out the Dodge Challenger, which has seating for five and the most spacious back seat among affordable sports cars.
- "Running the driver's seat through the full gamut of positions reveals plenty of leg, hip, and shoulder room, but people much more than six-foot-three are going to become intimately acquainted with the headliner." -- Car and Driver
- "The front seats are superbly shaped for both enthusiastic driving and long-distance cruising. The rear seat, though, is strictly for kids and cargo, as the fastback roof line severely limits headroom." -- Edmunds
So far, reviewers agree that the 2013 Genesis Coupe’s refreshed interior makes it more competitive with rival sports cars. The overall look and materials quality is slightly better than the outgoing 2012 model, and the Genesis Coupe offers value, thanks to standard tech features such as Bluetooth and a USB port. Still, one test driver notes that the iPod interface and optional premium sound system did not perform as well as expected.
- "The controls are generally intuitive except for the standard iPod interface, and despite being an upgrade, the Infinity audio system generates only mediocre sound." -- Edmunds
- "Controls are still easy to find and manipulate, but designers have thrown in a welcome sporty touch with the addition of three analog gauges." -- Autoblog
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe has 10 cubic feet of cargo space, which is about average for the class. If you want a sports car, but need the most trunk space available, consider the Mitsubishi Eclipse or Dodge Challenger, which have 15.7 and 16.2 cubic feet for cargo, respectively.
- "The 10-cubic-foot trunk is surprisingly useful, particularly with the rear seats folded down." -- Edmunds
