Hyundai Genesis coupe 3.8 WOW!

I sat in a Hyundai Genesis coupe 3.8 yesterday just for kicks. The interior was WOW, it was great. I couldn't believe I was sitting in a Hyundai. Even the rotors were huge and the brembos were tremendous. Too bad it looks like a hyundai on the outside, LOL

It seems to be a step up from what hyundai is used to.



So that puts them at ground level.

*snrk* So true. Pity, they're no older than Kia in the US and IMO Kia is doing much better.

Saw one driving down the road the other day. Looks better in person and in motion than it does in pictures or just sitting still. Still not great looking, but better.

hard to describe their styling cues, but there is a fair bit of 'family resemblance"

In case you don't know what the genesis coupe looks like:

IMO that car is beautiful from the side mirrors on back...but the front end it horrible. Looks like a scrunched up Sonata. They should have ditched the center grille entirely and went with a less dramatic headlight. A large "mouth" type grille like on a Jaguar E type or Aston Martin would have made this thing irresistable.

aren't they usually pretty tough on cars?

BMW’s M3—yes, that one—should take lessons from the Genesis Coupe’s steering rack. It serves-up Porsche-level feel, with just a tad less precision.

Sweet car. Just like a G37, but saves you 6k or so. GM should take some notes from Hyundai for sure.
