2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe: The last stand

While this is the final hoorah for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, there’s no denying this vehicle’s fun-to-drive sporty nature and aggressive good looks.

And for those looking for a little weekend track fun, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe can handle that with ease, too (while making sure our weekday treks to the office are a little less boring).

There’s no shortage of models in the 2015 Hyundai Genesis lineup, with three available (two of which are offered with either a manual or auto transmission). The same engine resides across the lineup so the fuel economy numbers are as follows according to which transmission you choose:

6-speed manual transmission: 14.4/9.9/12.4L/100km (city/highway/combined).

8-speed automatic transmission: 14.6/9.6/12.3L/100km (city/highway/combined).

There is one engine that powers all Hyundai Genesis Coupe models: a 3.8L V6 GDI unit. All models produce the same amount of power: 348 horsepower (with premium fuel) and 295 lb-ft of torque, which is all sent to the back wheels. Glorious.

Two transmissions are available on the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Premium and GT models, either a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic. Brembo brakes are standard across the board — this is a true sporty coupe made to handle weekends at the racetrack, and yet it can be just as comfortable in the most suburban (or urban) setting, and that’s the beauty of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

Opting for the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec, only available with a manual transmission, means you get 19” aluminum alloy wheels along with a Torsen-type Limited Slip Diffrential, sport bucket seats, and metal aluminum pedals. All of that equals: track beast. Not only does this version look badass, but it can handle all the twisties you throw its way, and with ease.

Seeing the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe come to an end may be sad for some, but we think you should take this opportunity to experience one of Hyundai’s sportiest, meatiest vehicles in the lineup. With a modern, young and fresh look, as well as plenty of get-up-and-go, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a fabulous two-door vehicle that’s sure to please even the most discerning driver.

There is so much to love about the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. It’s a sporty vehicle that is available at a reasonable price. It will turn heads on the road, and offer its driver a fabulous drive that can handle any winding road the vehicle faces.
