Hyundai Genesis coupe
Hyundai's Genesis coupe is a lot of car any way you slice it. It's Hyundai's high-end nameplate, so it's well-stocked with features and amenities. Plus, it looks good from the curb, even without hanging any extra body cladding on it.
"When Hyundai said it would launch a new sports coupe that would be able to hold its own against such competitors as Nissan's Z, they weren't joking," Gonzalez says. "The Genesis coupe is all business with its four-cylinder turbo and V-6 power plants. And did I mention that it's rear-wheel drive?"
RWD offers an edge in performance, handling better when cornering, particularly at high speed.
The base engine is a 274-horsepower, 2-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder. Either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed driver-shiftable automatic transmission hustles power to the rear wheels.
