The Hyundai Genesis Coupe, despite its sharing the same name with Hyundai’s luxury sedan, is not a luxury sedan. It is not a big luxury coupe, either. So what is it? It is one of Hyunda’s sporty coupes. Yes, in fact, it is meant to be a competitor for the likes of Subaru BRZ, Infiniti G37, and Ford Mustang. And here, we will talk about how Hyundai Genesis Coupe V8 first drive would look like.
The Genesis Coupe has two rows of seating and can accommodate four passengers comfortably. The front seats are comfortable and there are enough headroom and legroom for passengers. The rear seats are not as comfortable and spacious as the front seats, which is something usual for a coupe.
The surface in the interior is mostly covered with soft materials. And throughout the interior, there is a layer of black trim. Being a sporty coupe, the Genesis Coupe doesn’t offer much in terms of cargo space. If anything, the trunk feels rather cramped, something typical for most sports cars. It has only 10 cubic feet of space.
Hyundai Genesis V8 Coupe’s Performance
So, how Hyundai Genesis Coupe V8 first drive would look like? The drive would be more or less the same as with a Hyundai Genesis Coupe V6. That is, only the V8-powered Coupe would be much, much more powerful. The Genesis Coupe’s sibling, the Genesis has a V8 engine option available. And the two don’t have much difference other than appearance and styling.
Is it possible that the Genesis Coupe will get a V8 engine option like the Genesis? Yes, quite possibly. At the very least, the V8 engine is not off the table for the new Genesis Coupe. A V8 engine option has been available for years for the Genesis. There is no reason for the Genesis Coupe to get one too. Especially considering the fact that it is a sporty coupe.
So far, the V6-powered Genesis Coupe has shown to provide a comfortable yet firm ride and composure through turns. Automatic and manual transmission are both available. If the V8 engine ever comes to the Genesis Coupe, other than the power output the drive should not be too different. It would be more or less just as quiet and comfortable.
Like any other vehicle, the higher the trim level, the more features it has. The standard Genesis Coupe already comes with a lot of features. Among them are 18-inch wheels, keyless ignition, cloth upholstery, split-folding rear seat, automatic climate control, and satellite radio.
Other features like navigation, a sunroof, firmer suspension tuning, interior upgrades, leather seating, and a sound system from Infiniti are available on the higher trim levels.
That is how Hyundai Genesis Coupe V8 first drive is. At the moment, the strongest engine for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is the V6 engine. That said, it is not unimaginable that Hyundai will make a V8 engine option available for the next Genesis Coupe. The Genesis Coupe is, after all, meant to be a sporty coupe. Having a powerful engine like the V8 engine would be nice.
