Default 2010 Genesis Coupe pricing (+ R-Spec Genesis Coupe)

Article from Autoblog.

2.0L 4cyl-turbo, 210hp - starts at $22k
3.8L V6, 306hp - starts at $25k

Not bad when you compare it against the competition.

Even if it's the Altima coupe, if it's engineered as well as it looks they're going to have a hot seller!

Its RWD + 300 Hp (latter model), I think its going against the new breed of muscle cars, 370z and the BMW 1-series.

That's great pricing, can't wait to see bpu and apu mods on the I4 or full out aftermarket turbo kit for the V6.

Very interesting. These prices along with its styling and performance are going to make this car very competitive in the market. I think Genesis coupe 2.0T should go against Civic Si, WRX, Ralliart, and GTI. And Genesis coupe 3.8 should be against 370Z, G37, 135i, 335i, Evolution, STI, R32, and S2000.

By far the best value in the coupe market. The "R" sounds just incredible. Can my next car be a Hyundai? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

I can't find much any reason to get the FWD slower, uglier (IMO) blander, poseur Accord/Solara/G6/Altima coupes before this. On top of that it gives the 1/3/G37 a GREAT run for the money, only short really on refinement.

Don't forget the fantastic warranty Hyundai provides. I wonder how "mod friendly" this warranty will be. We all know how Mitsubishi dealt with all the EVO modders.

Damn, that car might get me out of my SC........

this car looks like an amalgamation of the G37/IS/ES and a tiny hint of maseratoi GT. For the price and power this car will def b a hit. Hyuandi FTW. They are doing a fantastic job of turning their image around. Ive already been telling my friends who are budget ballers to get this car.
