The Genesis Coupe has always shown flashes of potential, but several flaws continue to hold it back. The 3.8-liter V6 engine is powerful and sounds great; the noisy turbocharged four-cylinder has been dropped. The Coupe is sporty and agile, and the communicative and direct steering makes it fun to drive. But the car is let down by its imprecise, clunky manual shifter, the heavy clutch, and the very stiff, unsettled ride. Front-seat occupants will find plenty of room, but as in most coupes, the rear seat is very cramped. A backup camera is now available. Reliability has been below average, and the Coupe's low owner-satisfaction score in our survey is also noteworthy.
