New for 2015

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe drops the turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 for the 2015 model year, making the V-6 the standard engine. LED daytime running lights are now standard, and the Grand Touring trim has been discontinued.

Vehicle Overview

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a front-engine rear-drive coupe that competes with the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. The Genesis sedan is a separate luxury model that shares a name and a V-6 with the coupe, but nothing more.

Summary

The 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe offers only a 3.8-liter V-6 that makes 348 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque (on premium fuel), and comes with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels. EPA-estimated fuel economy is 16/24 mpg city/highway with the manual, and 16/25 mpg with the automatic. The Genesis Coupe gets a 7-inch infotainment screen, rev-matching downshifts on the eight-speed automatic, and three-stage electronic stability control. With the four-cylinder powertrain gone, the Genesis Coupe now starts at $26,750.
As with previous years, the 2015 Genesis Coupe R-Spec model revises the suspension (adding the goodies from the Track package), a limited-slip differential, 19-wheels, front camber adjustment bolt, and only the six-speed manual transmission.
The 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has not been comprehensibly tested by the NHTSA, but received a five-star rollover rating.

What We Think

The 2015 Genesis Coupe lineup has been simplified for the 2015 model year, a change Hyundai hopes will give the Coupe more of a chance against the non-V-8 Mustangs and Camaros. The Genesis Coupe V-6 delivers gobs of power, more than the BMW 435i, Audi S5, and Infiniti Q60 as Hyundai is quick to point out, and the shifts from the eight-speed make us think “double clutch” even though it’s a traditional setup. One segment-appropriate fun feature is a “sound generator” tube that pipes exhaust noise into the cabin, encouraging you to “mash the throttle, downshift, and repeat.”
In tight turns the Genesis does tend to understeer, and the shifter is vague and notchy at times. One major strike against the Genesis Coupe, which didn’t exist when it was launched, is the extremely capable Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ twins: several thousand dollars less, excellent handling, and a much lighter curb weight. Enthusiasts across the country could see this as a win, as all three coupes (plus the more expensive Nissan 370Z) approach the sports-coupe market from different perspectives.
