It took years for Hyundai to be taken seriously by driving enthusiasts, but this is the car that clinched it. The 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a rear-wheel-drive sport coupe with plenty of power and style, and it's a great value, too. If you're a driving enthusiast, we think you'll agree that this Hyundai speaks your language. Here are five reasons why the Genesis Coupe is the genuine article.

Bold Looks

What good is a sport coupe if it doesn't turn heads? The Genesis Coupe has style in spades, whether you're looking at its aggressive grille, brash alloy wheels or its distinctive beltline swoop. Forget subtlety. This coupe throws caution to the wind, and it loves the spotlight. You won't be disappointed unless you want to blend in.

Burly V6 Power

The Genesis Coupe used to offer a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, but now it comes one way: with a big ol' 3.8-liter V6 under the hood that pumps out 348 horsepower. That's a whole lot of muscle from a naturally aspirated V6. (In comparison, consider Mercedes-Benz's new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6, which is rated at 329 hp.) The Hyundai V6 makes some angry noises when you provoke it, and its passing power at speed is pretty amazing. This motor's ready to go whenever you are.

Balanced Handling

For driving dynamics, Hyundai benchmarked the Infiniti G Coupe, which is based on the Nissan 370Z sports car. Not surprisingly, the Genesis Coupe is a real athlete on winding roads. The steering is quick and precise, and you always feel in control. If you're into drifting, by the way, this is one of the easiest cars to get sideways, no joke. We told you Hyundai was serious this time.

Snug Seats

No matter which Genesis Coupe you choose, the front seats are going to be snug and sporty. But if you get the R-Spec or Ultimate model, you'll enjoy sport seats with extended bolsters, and they're definitely worth the upgrade. This car can generate some bigtime g-forces, so you'll be glad for that extra lateral support. If you're going to get a speedy sport coupe, you might as well have some genuine performance seats to match.

Exceptional Value

A new Genesis Coupe starts well under $30,000, and it comes standard with cool stuff, including LED running lights, a smart key, automatic climate control and Bluetooth. The sport-tuned R-Spec is the jock in the family, while the Ultimate offers leather and Infinity audio. No matter which way you slice it, the Genesis Coupe is a remarkable value for the money. Most cars with this much capability would cost a lot more if you added all those features.

Autotrader Says

It's hard to find affordable cars that are tailor-made for enthusiasts, but the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is the real deal.
