  • KDM power - 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
    By -

    rarely do i ever write reviews but i was so compelled to write one for the 2013 genesis 2.0t. i see a ton of mixed reviews at least for the 2.0t. The 2.0t is an extremely fun car for 25k. Power from the 4 banger is more than adequate if you're not an enthusiast or a tuner. Car receives a ton of looks, love the fact that it's not a common car on the road yet, it gives you a sense of exclusivity. Handling is good can take corners relatively well, but by no means is it on the same level as an FRS/BRZ. i see a lot of concerns and complaints about the waste gate on the turbo rattling, my genesis has about 2500 with no issue so far (knocks on every piece of wood known to mankind) overall pleased

  • Just purchased! - 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
    By -

    I purchased my 2013 Hyundai Genesis coupe two days ago and I absolutely love it. Naturally, you hear that this is a great value, and it indeed is! Lots of power, decent fuel economy, purrs when you drive it, and it turns a lot of heads. Even the base model is more than adequate in terms of interior styling and standard features. I put 300 miles in these two days of owning this vehicle, and so far, I have yet to have any complaints or concerns. I love this car!

  • So glad I chose this car! - 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
    By -

    This car is amazing. I purchased after doing months of research. The others I considered were the Nissan 370Z, Mustang GT, and BMW 128i coupe. This car has impressive handling, a spacious front for driver and passenger, instant power, and awesome styling. I recently drove on a 4 hour drive and got 30mpg. I almost chose the 370Z, but I wanted something that had more trunk space and the possibility of carrying more than 1 passenger. The back seat is tiny and some passengers will find they have claustrophobia, but I like it for the extra space for stuff and like knowing that I can fit up to 3 passengers legally. The trunk is huge. 2000 miles so far and I love it.

  • Genesis Coupe 2013 3.8 track - 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
    By -

    This is one really impressive car. From nose to tail. I owned a 2008 Infiniti G37 Sport and this car is a very close second to it. In some ways better. The design is a real head turner. The interior is quite comfortable and spacious. The interior and exterior illumination is fantastic. The sound system could be vamped up a bit but still sounds good. The ride is decent. A little rough and the road noise can be loud but not overbearing. Compared to the G37 it feels way lighter. Most standard features are the same in both cars but the Genesis does have a little more. I lease this car and I'm excited to see how the Genesis Coupe progresses in the future. I'm extremely happy I picked this one.

  • 2013 R spec 2.0T Outstanding value! - 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
    By -

    Purchased this R spec 3/22/13. Coming up on first 1000 miles, Love this car so far! This is our 2nd Hyundai in 2 yrs, My wife drive a 2011 Sonata 2.0T and we love that car as well. The 2.0 direct injected variable valve timing turbo engine is very stout and with 30k on the Sonata, trouble free. I hoped Hyundai would put that engine in the Genesis coupe, so when they did it was a done deal for me. That engine mated to a 6 spd manual is really fun to drive and I love the new look of the coupe. I also appreciate the simplicity of a rear wheel drive 4 cylinder. I am a experienced auto tech (30+ yrs) and find this car to be well thought out. Looking forward to a long term relationship.

  • Fun car, very quick - 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
    By -

    The decision for me came down to a used FR-S, Mini or Gencoupe. I chose a 22k miles Gencoupe for a lot of reasons. The head-turning styling, fantastic performance and interior trim all set the Gencoupe apart. The FR-S, with less HP and MUCH less torque, it looks great in the rear view mirror as you blow them away. Plus the Gencoupe has much more rear seat room for my kids. The Mini was the handling choice but lacks power. I love the wastegate chatter (I want to hear my turbo work!) but the turbo overall is not loud enough. The 6 speed tranny is fantastic- tight and precise, it's taken some time for me to learn to heel n toe with it (that's made a big difference in smoothness).

  • Best sports coupe for the buck - 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
    By -

    This is my third coupe (have owned a 2009, 2011 and now the 2013) and I must say this car is the best yet. Great power,very good built quality and comfortable. All the best things in the g37 for thousands less and with a great warranty to boot.I find the stereo to be fine (300 plus watts more then enough for me), the navigation works great as does the Bluetooth. If your looking fort a sports coupe that will leave some bucks in your bank account,then it is a no brainer.

  • My Second Gen Coupe - 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
    By -

    I had a 2012 GenCoupe auto that I was disappointed with and traded for this 2013 2.0T Manual which is a huge improvement in performance, economy, interior fit and finish. Having owned 5 mustangs I was ready for a change. With it's modern look both inside and out, better suspension, and value for the dollar I am happy I switched.

  • Don't judge a book by its cover - 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
    By -

    A beautiful and comfortable ride ruined by terrible transmission and waste gate design. She's quick, relatively inexpensive, comfortable to ride in but she has a fatal flaw. She sounds like a bucket of bolts after three thousand miles. My friends think there's something broke but there isn't. The waste gate rattles loudly and the transmission grinds. Hyundai claims this is normal and won't do anything about it, essentially their build quality lacks.

  • Greatly improved - 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
    By -

    As a previous 2010 coupe owner all I can say is that Hyundai has improved this car inside and out. I think Hyundai has done and outstanding job of responding to the earlier owner surveys, it's no wonder how they have become so competetive in todays market.
