2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe at Palm Springs Hyundai
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a testament to the commitment from Hyundai to provide high performance luxury automobiles and the newest generation of the Genesis lineup from Hyundai doesn’t disappoint. Hyundai has been constantly tweaking and making improvements to the Genesis Coupe since its release, increasing horsepower by 42 and increasing torque to 29 lb-ft. After adding stiffer springs and dampers along with reconfigured antiroll bars and bushings for the suspension the Genesis Coupe has earned the right to be called a true sports car.
The new Genesis Coupe is powered by a smooth running 348 horsepower V-6 engine that surprises with its speed and lack of throttle delay, all in a sports car under $30k. The clutch takes a little getting used to even for experienced drivers, most drivers who have reviewed the sporty 2 door have agreed that it is abrupt on the uptake and perhaps a bit excessively springy. The bothersome body roll that has been a common factor in Hyundai performance cars is gone and the car feels solid taking sharp turns.
The sporty two-tone interior is a perfect match to the bold exterior and the well bolstered front seats wrap around you and help keep you comfortable as you are taking those tight turns putting the Genesis Coupe through its paces. The cockpit is ergonomically designed with all controls within easy reach and gauges display gas mileage, oil temperature and torque. You definitely need a place to be able to open it up and let her run; the coupe performs best at higher speeds! Synch up your ipod with the seamless Bluetooth pairing and in less than 30 seconds you’ll be cruising down the highway listening to your favorite itunes playlist.
This is a car made for those who love to actually drive their car, it isn’t one of those “sit back and relax” kind of vehicles but more “let’s see what it will do”. The Genesis Coupe handles more like a performance race car and the stiffer suspension amplifies that feeling. Give yourself a weekend with some long curving highway roads and you will fall in love with the agile new coupe.
The new 2013 Genesis Coupe is a pleasant surprise and a thrill to drive, come by Palm Springs Hyundai and experience the thrill for yourself today!
