2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Improvements
The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe was already pretty sweet.
But now they upped it anyway to give drivers of the new 2011 an even bigger sugar rush.
Starting with a refinished interior with classy touches everywhere: matte-finish surfaces, dark metal-grain accents, softer leather on the steering wheel, plus chrome trim on the shifter bezel, center stack knobs and gauge cluster rings. (A nice upgrade from the hard plastic touches in the 2010 Genesis Coupe.)
The new-for-2011 3.8 R-Spec model Hyundai sacrifices a few niceties in the service of performance: automatic headlights, cruise control and some interior accents are gone in order to save weight; instead, 19-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, a retuned suspension, and a limited-slip differential let you own the road.
If you were thinking of purchasing a Genesis Coupe, the 2011 model is a great choice, however we always suggest waiting a few months so that supply catches up to demand.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
