2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Overview

The rear-wheel-drive Genesis Coupe comes with the choice of two engines. First up for the 2.0T models is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that churns out a healthy 274 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. On the base 2.0T and 2.0T Premium models, an eight-speed automatic with shift paddles is standard, while the 2.0T R-Spec comes with a standard six-speed manual.

The second engine option comes with the 3.8 models and is a 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces an extremely healthy 348 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. For the 3.8 R-Spec, a manual transmission is the only option, while the 3.8 Grand Touring comes only with an eight-speed automatic. If you’re looking for an option from both, the 3.8 Ultimate is the choice for you.

2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Interior

Quality materials and Hyundai’s signature fluid design make an appearance within the 2014 Genesis Coupe, creating an attractive cabin that keeps to the coupe’s sporty appeal. The two-knob climate controls and the optional large touchscreen add a nice touch of tech, while the backseat should only be reserved for small children and cargo.

2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Safety

Stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, and active front head restraints are all standard safety features, while the available Blue Link telematics system provides a multitude of emergency assistance programs.

  • Keyless ignition and auto-dimming rearview mirror are not new for 2014. I have them on my 2013.

      Whereas those features were optional for 2013, they are now offered standard on all trim levels for 2014.
