The Hyundai Genesis Coupé is a rear-wheel drive sports coupe from Hyundai Motor Company, released on October 13, 2008 for the Korean market. It is Hyundai's first rear-wheel drive sports coupe, and shares its basic platform with the Hyundai Genesis luxury sedan.

The Genesis Coupe arrived in United States dealerships on February 26, 2009 as a 2010 model.[3] Hyundai USA acting President and CEO John Krafcik has described the Genesis Coupe as being designed "...to deliver a driving experience that challenges cars like the Infiniti G37."[3] Hyundai has stated the Genesis Coupe is not intended as a successor to the similar-sized but front-wheel drive Hyundai Coupe (Tiburon or Tuscani in some markets).[4]

2009-2012 model[edit]

Pre-production[edit]

Photos of a heavily camouflaged Genesis Coupe prototype appeared on the internet as early as May 2007, fueling anticipation and speculation.[5] The spy photos suggested that Hyundai's new coupe would be rear-wheel drive, as pictures of the engine bay showed a longitudinal engine orientation typical of front-engine, rear-drive vehicles. The pictures also showed a four-cylinder engine with a heat-wrapped turbocharger. Speculation on potential engines for the new coupe ranged from the turbocharged four-cylinder pictured to the Tau V8 that Hyundai had developed for the luxury-oriented Genesis.[6]

Shortly before the 2007 Los Angeles International Auto show, more photos were leaked of an uncovered silver Genesis Coupe next to a silver Ford Mustang, presumed to be the Genesis Coupe's target competitor.[7]

Initial release[edit]

2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe (US)

The production Genesis Coupe was unveiled in 2008 New York International Auto Show, showcasing a red and a silver model. The unveiling was accompanied by a demonstration of the coupe's abilities with powerslides and burnouts. North American models went on sale in spring of 2009 as a 2010 model.[8]

Trim levels[edit]

There are 8 models of the Coupe based around two engine choices. Trim levels include: 2.0T Base, 2.0 R-Spec, 2.0T Premium, 2.0T Track (GT in Canada), 3.8 Base (For 2010), 3.8 R-Spec (For 2011), 3.8 Grand Touring, and a 3.8 Track (GT in Canada).

The R-spec 2.0T comes with stability control, ABS, electronic brake force distribution, 19-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, a Torsen Limited slip differential, a stiffer suspension and summer-only Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires. To reduce cost and weight, the R-Spec doesn't include automatic headlights, cruise control, trip computer, chrome interior accents or steering wheel audio controls. The Genesis Coupe R-Spec is available with a base price $3,000 less than the 2.0T Track model.[9]

For 2011, the R-Spec models were updated with the new 3.8 R-Spec. To reduce the cost difference in the R-Spec and the Track models, the 2.0T and 3.8 R-Spec models don't include automatic headlights, xenon HID headlights, navigation system with 6.5" touchscreen & XM NavTraffic (90-day trial), cruise control, leather seating surfaces with power driver seat and heated front seats, rear spoiler, the upgraded sound system (360-watt Infinity AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 audio system with 10 speakers), automatic temperature control, electrochromic auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass, HomeLink integrated transceiver, heated outside mirrors with turn signal indicators, power tilt-and-slide glass sunroof, metalgrain and chrome interior accents, backup warning system, chrome front fascia accents, aluminum pedals, aero wiper blades or premium door sill plates, but the base MSRP is $26,750. This model includes the R-Spec badge, track-tuned suspension, Brembo brakes, Torsen limited-slip differential and front camber adjustment bolts (needs to be installed).

Regional differences[edit]

While the Genesis Coupe that is released in North America will look the same as the Korean version, the suspension setup is stiffer according to American demographic.[10]

Hyundai Canada offers a proximity key for all V6 models, push button start or side-mirror marker lights on the 3.8L models and no spoiler on either the 2.0T or 3.8L V6. (US track models are the only trims equipped with spoilers). In fall of 2009, Hyundai began Genesis production with Navigation systems.

In some countries Hyundai Genesis Coupe will also be sold as Hyundai Genesis R-Spec, which comes with both the 3.8-liter and 2.0T engine and features some sport-oriented options.[11]

In response to criticisms about materials quality from reviewers and owners, Hyundai significantly improved materials quality for the new model. New features include a leather handbrake handle, plasmacluster air filtering, red leather interior option, LED accents above the foglights, and LED taillights.

Motorsport[edit]

RMR Genesis Coupe entered 2012 Formula Drift series.[18]

Marketing[edit]

A 30-second Genesis Coupe R-Spec ad titled "Think Fast", was premiered during fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLVI.[19]

As part of the Canadian market launch, a Sasquatch commercial titled 'Country Drive' was produced. In addition, there were 9 "Sasquatch on Set" clips to show what it's like working with yeti.[20]

On the 20th of September 2012, the game developer Gameloft released a racing simulator for the Android phone platform, under their established GT Racing title series, featuring the 2011 Genesis Coupe as well as their concept I-oniq[21] hybrid car.[22]

The Genesis Coupe appeared in the Asphalt 7: Heat video game.[23]

Reception[edit]

Reception to the revised Genesis Coupe has been mixed. Edmunds praised the 3.8 R-Spec as "the most interesting car that Hyundai makes". They also praised the improved transmission, uprated engine and more balanced suspension, but lamented "we could get into a V6-equipped Mustang or Camaro for less money". They also criticized the slow-moving tachometer and the brief loss of power after high-rpm upshifts.[24]

Motor Trend was critical of the revised 2.0T R-Spec, placing it last in a comparison test between it, a Ford Mustang V6, a Volkswagen Golf GTI, a Scion FR-S, a Subaru BRZ, and a Mazda MX-5 Miata. They praised its smooth ride and extra power, but criticized its "peaky power delivery", vague shifter and interior ambience.[25]

When Car and Driver took a 2013 Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec to Virginia International Raceway for its yearly Lightning Lap time trial, they posted a time of 3:13.9 around VIR's Grand West configuration, 0.1 second slower than the 306-hp 2011 Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec and slower than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Ford Mustang V6, Chevrolet Cobalt SS and Nissan NISMO 370Z. They were unsettled by its tendency to power oversteer, and its brake fade.[26]

Engine and transmission[edit]

The 2009-2012 Genesis Coupe is available with two engines. The standard engine is a 2.0L Theta turbocharged 4-cylinder producing 210 hp (157 kW; 213 PS) and 235 lb·ft (319 N·m) torque,[30] with an optional 3.8L Lambda V6 engine producing 306 hp (228 kW; 310 PS) and 266 lb·ft (361 N·m) torque.[30]

The 4-cylinder turbocharged engine shares many components with the Mitsubishi Evo X. Both engines are the result of the Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance, a joint venture among Hyundai, Mitsubishi, and Chrysler, with Hyundai’s engine using a different computer, from Siemens.[31] Interesting features of the engine include oil injectors under the pistons to keep them cooler. The TD04-13t turbo from the factory flows 10psi under full load, and reduces to 7psi at shift points before respooling.[32]

A 6-speed manual transmission is standard equipment, with an optional 5- or ZF 6-speed automatic (depending on engine choice).

Starting with the 2013 model, both engines got upgraded, the new 2.0T now produces 274 hp (204 kW; 278 PS) and 275 lb·ft (373 N·m) torque due to a bigger turbo, while the 3.8 now produces 348 hp (260 kW; 353 PS) and 295 lb·ft (400 N·m) torque thanks to the Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI).

Motorsport[edit]

Hyundai Genesis Coupe Race car

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe competed at the Formula Drift Professional Drifting Championship, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and select Redline Time Attack Series events in 2009 – thanks to a joint venture between Hyundai and racing champion Rhys Millen, who will drive the Red Bull-sponsored race car on those events.[36] Millen's V8 engine is running with mostly stock internals and its original Hyundai's 5.0-liter displacement.[37][38]

In July 2009, Millen and the Genesis Coupe set a new record for two-wheel drive production-based cars at Pikes Peak.[39][40]

In June 2011, Rod Millen set a new record for 2WD Time Attack using the same Genesis Coupe with a time of 11:04.912.[41]

Marketing[edit]

Hyundai took an aggressive stance on their marketing for the new release of this car with Rhys Millen drifting the car to music by Billy Corgan during a Super Bowl advertisement. They also launched the website edityourown.com that allowed users to create a video that allowed the promotion of the car. This was done previously by other car manufacturers, although none promised the final edit to be seen on TV as well as winning a cash prize along with the new car as Hyundai has.

Hyundai Genesis (coupe and the four-door saloon version) have appeared in the TV series Leverage, driven by the main characters. The coupe has also appeared in the TV series Burn Notice as Fiona's new car. It also made an appearance in the eighth season of the TV series 24 as one of the pursuit vehicles driven by Jack Bauer.

The song FOL from The Smashing Pumpkins, used in Genesis Coupe Super Bowl ad, was freely available by supplying e-mail address to Hyundai.[42]
