2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Priced at $27,245

Hyundai has been gradually improving the Genesis Coupe since its inception in 2009, and for 2014 this rear-wheel-drive sports coupe is upgraded once again. A few powertrain enhancements along with the addition of Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics system means a price bump of $2120 up to $27,245 with destination.

Matching up the 2014 and 2013 models is not an apples-to-apples comparison, though, as the base 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T powered by a 274-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder now comes standard with an eight-speed automatic, whereas previously the base trim had a manual. This automatic transmission receives a new rev-matching feature, and the six-speed manual transmission—which, in 2.0T models is now restricted to the $28,095 2.0T R-Spec trim level—has a hill-start assist feature as standard for 2014.The R-Spec trim level is the most performance-oriented Hyundai Genesis Coupe, with Brembo brakes, a special suspension, 19-inch wheels and summer tires, and sport seats. The top $30,195 2.0T Premium trim level, which adds a power driver’s seat, Hyundai Blue Link Telematics, a sunroof, and navigation, continues to be automatic-only.

Moving up to the larger, 3.8-liter V-6 engine that produces 348 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, the $30,245 Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec is the starting trim level and comes standard with the six-speed manual transmission. The $33,045 Genesis Coupe 3.8 Grand Touring—which adds heated seats, navigation, Blue Link, pushbutton start, and automatic climate control—is automatic only, and the top Genesis Coupe 3.8 Ultimate costs $34,295 with the manual and $35,495 with the eight-speed automatic. The Genesis Coupe 3.8 Ultimate comes standard with leather, Brembo brakes, 19-inch alloy wheels, Xenon headlights, and a rear spoiler.

The 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe also adds five new colors and a new interior cloth option. For a sportier engine note, Hyundai has also added an intake sound induction pipe to 2.0T models, and a high-performance synchronizer ring is added to the manual transmission as well.

The 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is on sale now.
