2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track

Andrew Trahan

It may not be the most refined, but the Genesis coupe's powertrain is quite fun. The shifter doesn't offer the best feel, and the engine can be a bit coarse, but when you're aggressive with the gas pedal, you get a great response. The Hyundai is a bit easier to drive than the Nissan 370Z, thanks to a clutch that offers more feedback as it engages.

The suspension is where the two really coupes really separate themselves. The Hyundai is downright rough, trundling over bumps and heaving back and forth or side to side. It seems like unnecessary harshness that doesn't provide any tangible benefit to handling.

I do prefer the Genesis's looks to those of the 370Z. The proportions give it a longer and lower look, and I appreciate the shapes of the kink in the window behind the doors and the arcing trunk lid.

Try removing the sticker up on the sunroof's exterior visor. Most likely the dealer or Hyundai forgot to peel it off before handing your guys the keys.
