Safety

For a car with this much power, safety is also at the top of the priority list. Hyundai is a leading innovator in safety, offering all its vehicles' safety features as standard equipment rather than requiring you to pay extra for them.

The Genesis coupe has six standard airbags, including front-, side-impact and side curtain airbags for the front row. It's important to note that it doesn't have side curtain airbags for the backseat. The Genesis coupe also has electronic stability control - which you can turn off when you're safely playing around with drifting - traction control and antilock brakes.

I'd strongly discourage anyone from installing a rear-facing infant-safety seat or a forward-facing car seat with a five-point harness in this car. You'll have a heck of a time trying to duck under the roofline and behind the front seats to do so. If that's not enough to deter you, the Latch connectors are dysfunctional. They're buried so deep in the seat back that they're rendered useless.

My girls' booster seats, on the other hand, fit surprisingly well in the rear seats. There was enough headroom to fit their high-back boosters, and the bolstered seats cradled the boosters perfectly. The seat belts were easy for my daughters to buckle independently.
