The 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe – Giving More For Less
The all-new 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has come out with a bang, with a powerful 3.8-L V6 engine; it has certainly announced itself in the market. The manufacturers have made several changes including, keyless ignition and entry, LED running lights and others. Surprisingly, all the specs mentioned, come as standard.
When it comes to sports coupes, there are plenty of options available for the people passionate about cars. Out of so many names, Hyundai may not seem like an ideal choice, however, with the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, things might just take a turn. Boasting a V6 with 348 HP and rear-wheel-drive, the all-new Hyundai Genesis Coupe stands head to head with all the big names in the market. And when all of that is put together with a moderate curb weight and responsive handling, you get a vehicle that guarantees excellent diving experience.
The all-new Genesis Coupe sticks to the principle that Hyundai follows, delivering more for less. The vehicle comes with features like, LED lights, keyless ignition and entry, 18-inch wheels (alloy), climate control (automatic) etc. Besides that, the company also offers a warranty, long enough to persuade the buyers of its reliability.
The issue however is the number of rivals the Hyundai Genesis has to face. The vehicle stands against some of the most trusted names with extremely attractive vehicles like the 2015 BMW 228i, which is available in the market with the same price tag as the top version of the Genesis Coupe, the Ultimate. But the kind of image BMW carries; it is hard for Hyundai to top that. Another major rival that Hyundai Genesis Coupe faces is the 2015 Ford Mustang, which stands out with its phenomenal acceleration by the V8 and the handling, which is a lot sharper than the Genesis Coupe.
It is certainly difficult for Hyundai to make a mark against names like Ford and BMW, but there is no doubt about the fact that the vehicle offers an exquisite performance. The Genesis Coupe may not be remembered as the greatest of all times, but it will certainly be remembered as a surprise package.
The 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe comes with 3.8-L V6. The rear-wheel-drive takes all the power from the engine and produces about 348 HP and the torque of 295 lb-ft. When it comes to transmission, the drivers have a couple of options; a six-speed manual which comes as standard in the vehicle and an eight-speed automatic with gear shifting paddles mounted on the steering wheel, this however, is optional in the vehicle.
The EPA estimated fuel economy for this vehicle is, 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. With the automatic, the figures hardly change, returning 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
From a stand still, the 2015 Genesis Coupe went up to the mark 60 mph in a matter of 5.3 seconds, which is actually pretty impressive for a coupe containing a V6.
