New cars: Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track

What the critics say about the $30,250 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track

Motor Trend
This rear-drive luxury sports car has the power and grace of a Lexus LS460, though the price tag is lower than that of a Chrysler 300C. We’d have named it Car of the Year, were it not for the extraordinary Nissan GT-R. The Genesis’ 306-hp V6 hits 60 mph in 5.5 seconds, and the standard stability and traction control “cheat the laws of physics.”

Car and Driver
“C’mon, really? Hyundai?” Really. The Track package includes leather, sunroof, Brembo brakes, and trunk spoiler. The ­corporate grille makes the vehicle look a bit dorky, and the “foxy roofline” sacrifices rear headroom for “graphic identity”—though the rear seats do fold to expand trunk space. Interior appointments are cozy enough, though not luxurious.

Los Angeles Times
“You just can’t beat a Hyundai” for value. Going up against other budget-minded growlers, such as the Ford Mustang GT and Nissan 370Z, the Genesis Coupe V6 “feels ornery and aggressive.” Unfortunately, groupthink has given the coupe “the world’s worst face-lift”—weird-looking headlights and a grille resembling “a mouth that can’t close.”
