2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe review By Kristin Varela

Before my two-week test drive of the 2010 Hyundai Genesis coupe, I had fantasies of becoming the top U.S. female drifter, Verena Mei, while sitting behind the Genesis coupe's steering wheel. It's a spicy, sporty, rear-wheel-drive car, but it seems to be made more for Verena than me, a suburban mom of two girls.

I do, however, know of at least one mom who thinks the Genesis coupe is a family car. A new friend on Twitter - a mom of two kids, ages 11 and 7 - just purchased a Genesis coupe a few weeks ago and loves it. Maybe my fantasy isn't too far off after all.

My kids climbed into the Genesis coupe and exclaimed, "Wow! This is the coolest racecar we've ever been in!" (As if they've ever been in a racecar.) During my first day in the Genesis coupe I drove mildly, enjoying the throaty rumble of the sporty engine, but lamenting slightly about the harsh track-tuned suspension. It seemed like overkill to drive my girls up the street to summer camp in it. As I got more comfortable in the car, my joy of driving it only increased. I let my foot down just a little harder on the accelerator and ... whoa ... this baby really flies.

Although the Genesis coupe certainly isn't built as a typical mom-mobile, there are plenty of atypical moms in the world looking for their automotive match. Read on, dear friends, and see if the Genesis coupe from Hyundai might fit the bill.
