2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe – Click above for high-res image gallery

Hyundai has provided pricing on its 2011 Genesis Coupe-R Spec, and the automaker has giveth and taketh away when it comes to features and price. Starting at $26,750 (plus $800 freight), the 3.8-liter V6 with a manual transmission is the same price as the 2.0-liter four-cylinder in Premium trim, making it the least expensive V6 in the range.

At $4,000 dollars less than the 3.8 Track with a manual, and 68 pounds lighter, you still get the track suspension, Brembos, Torsen LSD and 19-inchers, and forsake the auto headlights, cruise control, sunroof, rear spoiler, metalgrain accents outside and chrome bits inside. Increased tunability comes from the front strut camber adjustment bolts, and the whole package gets wrapped in one of four colors. Follow the jump for all the details, along with full-line pricing.

HYUNDAI ANNOUNCES 2011 GENESIS COUPE R-SPEC PRICING

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., 09/14/2010 - The Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec priced at $26,750 will arrive at dealerships across the country this fall. R-Spec takes the core performance equipment from the 3.8 Track model and eliminates non-essential convenience equipment to reduce its weight by 68 pounds and price by $4,000. The 3.8 R-Spec allows enthusiasts to use that $4,000 to tune their own car to their desired specifications.

The 3.8 R-Spec is now the most affordable 3.8-liter V6 model in the Genesis Coupe lineup. R-Spec performance features include track-tuned suspension, 19-inch gunmetal-finish alloy wheels with performance summer tires, Brembo® braking system, Torsen® limited-slip differential and R-Spec badging. To achieve the $4,000 savings R-Spec 3.8 eliminates metalgrain accents, automatic headlights, cruise control and chrome interior accents. Shoppers will not find a sunroof or rear spoiler on an R-Spec. In a special nod to tuners, R-Spec will also receive a set of front strut camber adjustment bolts (dealer installation required) to further enhance initial turn-in and handling response. Appropriately, the 3.8 R-Spec will be available in four exterior colors most common among international racing teams: Karussell White, Bathurst Black, Interlagos Yellow and Tsukuba Red. R-Spec comes with manual transmission only.

The Genesis Coupe lineup has also been simplified to six well-differentiated models. Navigation with Fully Automatic Temperature Control is now standard on Genesis Coupe 2.0T Premium.

      My father 87 accord lx-i has Cruise control , central lock , Moon/sunroof , power
      everything , still working and 23 years after all these options are in debate in a new car.
      Cmon guys.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Good value for money.
      • 4 Years Ago
      That's not bad. This competes with the v6 Mustang. Although i think the fuel economy is notably lower... :|

      Hyundai needs to update their engines for the Genesis ASAP. Give it the same turbo 2.0L motor as the Sonata, as for the v6... where's Hyundai's next gen DI v6 motor?

      Otherwise this car is irrelevant if you look at the power/mpg numbers that the Mustang is making.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Yay for me! My 2010 3.8 Grand Touring is a rare car now; I have Mirabeau Blue with the brown leather, and came stock w/ HIDs. 2011's cant get either!
        • 4 Years Ago
        sounds like you have a nice car, there.

        If I were to get an ideal one, it would also be Mirabeau Blue, with some options pick-and-choose from both GT and Track. And a few aftermarket styling bits, like an M&S body kit, which is one of the more tasteful, and actually an improvement over stock.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Not bashing, just curious. How has the Genesis Coupe been selling, especially compared to the Mustang, Challenger, and Camaro? I only ask because around here, Ive only seen one on the road and it had temp tags still. This was only a week ago.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I see the Genesis coupe all the time in NYC.. 2 people even own it on my block
        • 4 Years Ago
        I see it all the time on the roads here in sunny Irvine, CA. It looks stunning in white, I'll admit. Usually I see it in 2.0T guise, though, as most of the drivers are UCI students.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Sales of the Gen coupe, no dount, has been disappointing for Hyundai (the sedan is selling much closer to expectations).

        For 2009, sales of the coupe were about on par for the 370Z, but they seem to have improved for 2010.

        Based on thhe sales of the Gen coupe, 370Z and RX-8, the market for Asian sports coupes seems to be pretty small, which is probably wise that Hyundai is taking the 2nd gen Gen coupe upscale to better battle the G37.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Where I live, we have a large computer tech hub and 2 universities. It's odd to go a day without seeing this car on the road, or being followed by another one. I am at the point of actually wanting to sell mine because it is not nearly as exclusive as I thought it would have been.

        That said, I see the very odd 2009+ Mustang, Camaro and extremely rare Challenger. Depends on where you live and the demographic IMO. Certainly I would expect the Mustang and Camaro to out sell the Genesis Coupe, which is the main reason I didn't even look at a Mustang or Camaro, though I would be swayed towards the Mustang for the best overall package on the road.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I personally have yet to see one on the road also.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Hyundai does not break out the Genesis sedan from the coupe in the sales numbers so its very difficult to ascertain real sales numbers for the coupe.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I'd much rather have the 2.0T model.
      • 4 Years Ago
      That's not a bad deal at all.
        • 4 Years Ago
        That's exactly what I was thinking. This thing borders on the used performance car market... and you'll still be the first person to fart on the seat.

        If I had a better job (maybe I will soon?) this would make an utterly fantastic second car.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Really don't care much if cruise control is missing. Have done 1300+ mile drives with and without it, not that different.

      Now I am curious to see a comparison between the 2.0T R and the 3.8 R, especially with respect to handling.

      Really great to see a "basic model sportscar" still being offered. Hmmm, this should also get compared to a V6 Mustang with the "track pack" and nothing else...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Or you could have a Mustang for less. Better car, better looks, just saying.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Gen Coupe never lost to Mustang V6 in any comparos. Gen coupe is a superior car.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Don't mind iBx1, he's a known Hyundai/Kia troll.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Different folks different strokes. I knew the Mustang was going to be bumped up in power, but I still bought a Genesis Coupe. I think it looks better (inside and out), but that is my opinion.

        More HP ≠ Better car
        • 4 Years Ago
        and also about 1000000 times more common. Outside of the 30-strong meets I organize every 4 months, I've seen maybe 12 other Gen Coupes in the NYC Metro Area. Mustangs are a dime-a-dozen. Great car and a great value, absolutely, but they never get you the looks that my Gen Coupe does.
      • 4 Years Ago
      This car looks great, but they need to rework that front grille, it looks amature.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Agreed. The front fascia is a big weak spot IMO
        • 4 Years Ago
        ....and ditch the droopy headlights as well as that saggy rear window while they're at it.
        • 4 Years Ago
        yeah, rental car esque. That's old Hyundai design language right there.
      • 4 Years Ago
      OMG! They get it! Hyundai gets it!! I can't wait till I go full time at my job so I can pick this bad boy up eventually!
      • 4 Years Ago
      So you get all the "go-somwhat-faster" parts without having to pay for the "I-DON'T-WANT-THAT!" parts?

      Great.
