Default Hyundai Genesis Coupé...

Hmm. There's never been a Hyundai to catch my eye. Ever. But the Genesis Coupé really does have the right stuff. Despite the car being somewhat ugly (somewhat reminiscent of the Tiburon), it promises to offer a LOT of power for not much price. According to Autoblog's estimates, the 3.8-liter V6 model will push out a killer 310HP and run around $25,000. The sibling will hover around $20,000 and kick out 223HP, still incredibly respectable.

Though the interior is getting a lot of complaints... I guess the real question is, who cares? The car has (some) style, offers plenty of power and be released at a price that most people looking to purchase a new car can afford.

I can picture it now... if the Genesis lives up to the hype, it's going to be hard to NOT see one on the street after launch.
