Hyundai Genesis Coupe Interior

Critics note that the 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has a lot of hard plastic trim pieces, but they say that, overall, its interior materials are still as nice as those found in other affordable sports cars. Reviewers agree that the 2014 Genesis Coupe has an attractive interior design, and they say its interior controls are user-friendly and it has a good amount of trunk space. As with most sports coupes, reviewers say the Genesis Coupe’s front seats are supportive and fairly spacious, but that its rear seat is too small for adults.

  • "Materials quality remains just average despite the presence of premium stitching; it's good enough to compete with a Camaro, for example, but feels a bit low-rent compared to a BMW." -- AutoTrader
  • "The Hyundai Genesis Coupe's interior is generally sporty and attractive, though the three auxiliary gauges in the middle of the center stack are a bit tacky. While materials quality is class-competitive overall, there's enough hard plastic trim to remind you that this is a value-priced coupe." -- Edmunds
  • "It doesn't go pound-for-pound with stretch competitors like the Infiniti G or BMW 1 Series, but it definitely offers a richer environment than non-lux foes like the Ford Mustang and Scion FR-S." -- Kelley Blue Book

Seating

The 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe seats four and comes standard with cloth upholstery. Available features include leather upholstery, heated front seats and a power-adjustable driver seat. Reviewers say the Genesis Coupe has very supportive front seats and great outward visibility. They like how the standard telescoping steering wheel helps drivers of all heights find a comfortable driving position. However, some report that the Genesis Coupe lacks enough headroom for very tall drivers. As with most sports coupes, test drivers say the rear seats don’t have much leg- or headroom for adults and are best left to kids or cargo.

  • "The driving position is excellent, affording ample outward visibility, and the exceptionally supportive front seats are welcome companions on both back-road blasts and long trips. A telescoping steering wheel was finally introduced last year, making it easier for shorter and taller drivers to get comfortable. The rear seat, though, is strictly for kids and cargo, as headroom and legroom are insufficient for adults." -- Edmunds
  • "The Genesis Coupe's front seats provide strong lateral support and just the right mix of support and squish for long hauls. Thankfully, the wheel telescopes now; prior to 2013, it was tilt-only. … As for the back seat, it's basically unusable for adults due to a lack of headroom; plan on employing it as a cargo shelf for the most part." -- AutoTrader
  • "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 (2013)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe include proximity key, push-button start, automatic climate control, Bluetooth, a USB/iPod port, satellite radio and a six-speaker audio system. Available features include a sunroof, a 10-speaker Infinity audio system and a navigation system with a 7-inch touch screen.

Automotive journalists say the Genesis Coupe has easy-to-use interior controls, and they appreciate the optional navigation system’s large, crisp touch-screen display. However, they write that the Genesis Coupe’s standard and optional audio systems have lackluster sound quality and that its iPod interface is difficult to use.

  • "We like the Genesis Coupe's simple two-knob climate controls, and we're also fans of the optional navigation system's large, clear touchscreen. The standard iPod interface, however, isn't as intuitive as we'd like. Also disappointing is the 10-speaker Infinity audio system's sound quality, to say nothing of the base six-speaker setup." -- 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 (2013)

Cargo

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe has 10 cubic feet of cargo space, which is about average for the class. Reviewers are pleased with the trunk space in the Genesis Coupe, especially when its rear seats are folded down.

  • "The 10-cubic-foot trunk is surprisingly useful, particularly with the rear seats folded down." -- Edmunds (2013)
