2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T Track Pack

2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T TrackPack

If there's one letdown to the promise of a track-tuned, rear-wheel-drive sports coupe, it's this turbocharged four-cylinder. The figures -- 210 hp and 223 lb-ft of torque -- aren't miniscule, but the manner in which they're delivered is anything but exciting.

Despite that peak torque figure coming in at a low 2000 rpm (redline is at 6800 rpm), there's no wall of torque slamming your vertebrae against the seatback. The acceleration feels sedate and linear (perhaps too linear), and only glancing at the speedometer shatters this perception. The sheriff's deputies won't believe you, but 115 mph in this car feels more like 80.

That tranquil sensation is also due in part to the overall refinement of the Genesis Coupe. It may not be as sensuous as its four-door cousin, but Hyundai's crafted a quiet, solid, and tractable sport coupe. The cabin trim is mostly crafted from rock hard materials, but there's nary a squeak, shimmy or rattle--impressive, considering the suspension, especially on this Track model, stretches the definition of "firm" to a new level.

Well, this is weird. When I saw this review, I thought this car would have great comments because of the buzz it made when launched. But to my surprise, all of the reviewers had problems with it. I was thinking to buy one of these soon, but now I'll reconsider something else.
