2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe gets minor update, price bump


Hyundai is releasing the Genesis Coupe for the 2016 model year with a new six-inch color display in the center stack in place of the previous dot-matrix display. That’s it. Oh, except for a price increase.

The coupe still packs a 3.8-liter V6 as standard, driving 348 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels through either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. For some buyers, the Genesis Coupe makes for a compelling alternative to the likes of the Nissan 370Z (which only has two seats) and the Infiniti Q60 Coupe (which is significantly more expensive).

Now starting at $26,950 (in base form with the manual), the 2016 model comes in $200 more expensive than the 2015 model. The R-Spec starts at $29,900 for 2016 (representing a $400 increase), and the top-of-the-line Ultimate model lists at $33,750 (or $350 more than the outgoing model).
