2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe


Let us say right away, the Genesis is a 2 +2 coupe. The rear seats are for small children. At the front, against the environment is pleasant to the eye. Without resorting to super luxurious materials that plastics are of good quality, Hyundai has managed to concoct a comfortable place. The sports seats offer good lateral support, while the driving position is relatively easy even if a telescopic steering wheel adjustment is desired. The multiple buttons on the center console are simple to use, with separate Hyundai those of the breakdown of those in the audio system. Later that year, a navigation system is offered, the French translation of the latter is not complete.   

Although the Tiburon had a friendly face, it was high time to ensure his succession and the new Genesis Coupe is expected to soon forget the previous model. It is longer, wider and lower than its predecessor. The configuration engine front / rear wheel drive also saves a little space under the hood, allowing the line closer to the ground. At first glance, the Genesis Coupe impresses. Even if it is completely different, it is easy to recognize kinship with the old Tiburon. Unlike the Genesis sedan, Hyundai did not hesitate to put the H on the grille at the front. The front bumper fits very well with the rest of the car, while the rear diffuser and two exhaust tips we almost just forget it's a Hyundai. Even without the spoiler (an option in Canada), the line of cut is very well executed. As for the profile of the GT, it should be of concern to some Infiniti G37 coupe, which is saying something. While encamped on the 18-inch wheels or optional 19-inch, the Genesis seems ready for a long walk on a winding road.

When Hyundai showed off its concept of the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2007, it was rumored that there was a V8 under the hood in carbon fiber. Unfortunately, this was not the case. The purr of the V8 is currently reserved for the sedan. The current economic crisis and gasoline prices that could rise dramatically probably killed that option. It does not matter, because the Hyundai engineers have still not stuck up two engines to propel them to the GT. The entry-level model inherits a four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that develops 210 horsepower and 223 pound-feet of torque. The latter can be coupled to a six-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automatic with paddles behind the steering wheel to switch over the other. The other available engine wins two cylinders. The 3.8-liter V6 used in the Genesis sedan is back in the cut but in a configuration very magazine that is now developing 306 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The engine develops side transmission, a six-speed manual fitted to the base V6 model, while a six-speed automatic with paddles behind the steering wheel is also available as an option.
