Fall 2009 Auto Guide
New and redesigned Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Hyundai Genesis Coupe

An all-new new sport coupe with the same name as Hyundai's first-ever luxury sedan has joined the lineup. Like the Genesis Sedan, the new coupe model has a rear-wheel-drive platform and a 3.8-liter V-6. Other than that, Hyundai's newest model bears little resemblance to the sedan. The coupe is available in two models -- the turbocharged 210-horsepower four-cylinder and the 306-horsepower V-6. There are high-performance versions of both models, including two pricier Track models. A lower-priced tuner-focused R-spec model is expected to debut later in the model year. Outside, the coupe's sleek body features projector-beam headlamps and standard power mirrors. Though not as luxurious as the Genesis Sedan, this sporty, 2+2 coupe features a variety of upscale amenities including a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Six airbags come standard and a sonar backup warning system is optional.
