Hyundai has done a good job of differentiating the Genesis coupe from the sedan. Of course, the bright yellow exterior color of our test car (not one I particularly care for, by the way) helps to announce the coupe's more sporting intentions. Once inside, the seats are quite comfortable, and, as in the sedan, you notice interior materials that are well fit and feel nice to the touch. Several of the controls are placed differently in the coupe, like the power-mirror adjusters, the steering-wheel-mounted controls (and the steering wheel itself), and the center stack. Once underway, you notice the difference even more, as the sedan's luxury-oriented demeanor has been completely set aside for a much more rough-and-ready character. Clearly, Hyundai is going for two completely different sets of buyers with the sedan and the coupe - my guess is that the coupe skews toward younger buyers with a larger percentage of them male. Perhaps that's why this fifty-year-old woman prefers the sedan.
