The Genesis coupe is quite different from the sedan. Handling is very capable and nimble, and the 3.8-liter V6 is punchy and powerful. The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine is somewhat noisy. But the car is let down by an imprecise manual transmission that requires extra attention to extract smooth shifts and the ride is very stiff and can be unsettled.

G37 Killer by Dan from Atlanta on 05/07/2012. Trim: 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track Auto, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Amazing vehicle! Bought it as an alternative to the G37, A5 and C350 coupe. Was a little concerned that it was "only" a Hyundai....this car stands toe to toe with the group. Car gets many looks and comments. Performance never disappoints. Been up to the Georgia mountain switchbacks and it leaves everyone in the dust...without trying. Bought every option. Still reading the 3 thick owners manual, but the Nav/Bluelink system is fantastic. 8 speed auto gives great control with paddle shifters.
Cons: Some cheap plastic features that I expected, but most don't notice. Would like to have had a suspension adjustment feature. Very firm ride, too firm for some. Black paint seems to chip too easily. Get a bra or clear mask.
Overall review: Don't buy this car...I like having this cool unique baby all to myself. But if you must, then get the 3.8....killer.
