Genesis Coupe 2010

2010 hyundai genesis coupe is truly a world class automobile for value, safety, style, comfort and performance. Hyundai Genesis Coupe is Hyundai’s most dynamic performance car ever and the second consecutive all-new model introduction from Hyundai appealing directly to the car enthusiast. Hyundai Genesis Coupe uses the same flexible rear-wheel drive architecture originally developed for the Genesis sport sedan. The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe faces off against a wide range of sporty coupe—including the Infiniti G37 and even the new 2010 Ford Mustang. 2010 hyundai genesis coupe is the real deal for driving enthusiasts who want it all.

The Coupe’s unique styling uses a bold Z-shaped character line visible along the side plus a dip in the glass toward the rear of the cabin. This dip helps make the interior feel more spacious and aids in outward visibility. 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe’s rocker panels are drawn close to the ground making the bodysides extra thick and the daylight opening thin, allowing the wheels to be slammed up into bulging fenders. To complete the aggressive sports car look, the depth between the fenders and the greenhouse has been maximized.Large openings in the front fascia allow for better engine breathing. The dual exhaust tips integrated into the rear fascia with surrounding blackout repeat the design theme of the front fascia graphic.Hyundai Genesis Coupe rides on standard 18-inch alloy wheels or optional 19-inch wheels, both delivering a bold stance and aggressive handling. Some genesis coupe colors are named after race tracks: lime rock green, nordschleife gray, tsukuba red.

Genesis Coupe Interior

2010 hyundai genesis coupe is offered in a variety of flavors. Two engines infuse Hyundai Genesis Coupe with performance and the choice of a 6-speed stick or 5 speed automatic. The 3.8 liter Lambda DOHC V6 engine delivers an estimated 306 horsepower (310 horsepower using premium fuel) and 263 lb.ft. of torque on regular unleaded. This engine will launch the Hyundai Genesis Coupe from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under six seconds. To maximize the power band, the 3.8 liter engine utilizes Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) on intake cam shafts and a new Variable Intake System (VIS) that helps cylinders breathe efficiently at both low and high RPM. The better breathing results in outstanding off-the-line acceleration and passing performance, and remarkable fuel efficiency. The V6 engine uses an alloyblock and cylinder heads for lighter weight and thermal efficiency, and features timing chains with no scheduled maintenance.

The turbocharged, intercooled 2.0-liter DOHC inline four cylinder benefits from CVVT on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. The 2.0 liter turbo generates an estimated 212 horsepower (223 horsepower using premium fuel) and 217 lb.ft. of torque. The power comes on quick, with only the most moderate amount of turbo lag, and none of the torque steer you experience in front-drive competitors. That’s 16 more horsepower and 2 pound-feet than the six-banger generates in the genesis sedan, incidentally, and you’ll appreciate the added numbers when you’re pushing the v-6 coupe to its limits.

 Hyundai Genesis Coupe

2010 hyundai genesis coupe interior gets a pleasant, not entirely edgy theme that includes a big tachometer and speedometer splayed in the driver’s sight. A push-button starter and a proximity key are offered. The optional leather makes the interior look sharp. Window and mirror controls are on the driver’s door, but are placed at an odd angle that takes some getting used to. Regarding safety, the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe includes standard front, side, and curtain airbags. Whiplash-reducing active head restraints are also standard on the front seats. As would be expected, anti-lock brakes come standard and an excellent Brembo brake package is a performance add-on. Electronic stability control with integrated traction control rounds out the major safety features. At the time we filed this report, the Genesis Coupe hadn’t completed IIHS or government crash tests, but Hyundai representatives told us they expect five-star front and four-star rear crash ratings.

The standard audio system for every 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe includes both iPod jacks, a USB input, and Bluetooth connectivity. A 300 watt Infinity audio system is available, as are heated seats. Additional model packages (Premium, Grand Touring, Track, and R-Spec) group features as their names imply. The R-Spec is particularly interesting, as it provides genuine track-readiness in an affordable package that is ready for enthusiasts to modify.

Pricing for the 2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8 starts at $10,900 less with an MSRP of $25,000. Adding the Track Package brings the pricing up to $29,500 giving your Genesis Coupe a stiffer suspension, a Torsen limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes and 19-inch wheels.
