The 2014 Genesis Coupe adds standard features like fog lights, keyless entry with push-button start and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Also, the automatic transmission gets a rev-matching feature, the 2.0T engine receives an intake sound amplifier and the 3.8 Ultimate replaces the 3.8 Track.
The 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is offered in two different ranges, separated by engine type. The 4-cylinder 2.0T comes in base, R-Spec and Premium trims, while the 6-cylinder 3.8 comes in R-Spec, Grand Touring and Ultimate trims.
The base 2.0T ($27,245) starts with 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, fog lights, LED taillights, heated mirrors, cloth upholstery, automatic climate control, keyless entry with push-button start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a tilt-telescopic steering wheel, air conditioning, a trip computer and a 6-speaker audio system with iPod/USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
The 2.0T R-Spec ($28,095) gets a number of performance-oriented upgrades, including 19-in wheels with performance tires, Brembo brakes with larger discs, a limited-slip differential, a stiffer suspension and special front-seat side bolsters. It lacks a number of the base 2.0T's convenience items, however.
The 2.0T Premium ($30,195) ditches the R-Spec's performance goodies in favor of a sunroof, a power driver's seat with lumbar support, a navigation system with a 7-in touchscreen and a 10-speaker, 360-watt Infinity audio system.
The 3.8 R-Spec ($30,245) is similar to its 2.0T counterpart, while the 3.8 Grand Touring ($33,045) builds on the 2.0T Premium's equipment with leather upholstery and heated front seats. The 3.8 Ultimate ($34,295) essentially combines the R-Spec's performance upgrades with the Grand Touring's luxuries, also adding xenon headlamps and a rear spoiler.
Trunk space in the Genesis Coupe is a smallish 10.0 cu ft.

BMW 2 Series -- Even a base 2 Series costs as much as a loaded Genesis Coupe, but you can see and feel where the extra money goes.
Ford Mustang -- The all-new 2015 Mustang is one of this year's hottest debuts, and the outgoing 2014 Mustang is no slouch.
Scion FR-S -- The FR-S lacks the Hyundai's straight-line speed, but it's untouchable in the twisties.
The 2.0T is our choice. It has plenty of power now, and it even gets solid fuel economy, but V6-powered Genesis Coupes can get a little pricey. Find a Hyundai Genesis Coupe for sale
