The 2014 Honda Accord Coupe vs. the 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
The 2014 Honda Accord Coupe is equal parts professional and a favorite in the Middletown and Mechanicstown area. The midsize Accord offers luxury-focused styling, strong fuel economy, and plenty of available features. Of course, there are other midsize coupes on the market to consider, such as the 2014 Hyundai Genesis.
While we’re certainly partial to the Accord, we want to give the Genesis its chance. Here’s a quick look at how these two models compare.
A standard 185hp 2.4L I4 engine powers the Accord Coupe with the option of trading up to a 278 hp V6. When equipped with the continuously variable transmission, the 2014 Accord Coupe is estimated to get 26 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway, for a combined average of 29 mpg.*
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe comes standard with 274hp 2.0L turbocharged I4. With more power typically comes less efficiency, and that’s especially true in this case as 2.0L turbocharged models only get a 17 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. Honda gives you the option of more performance, but Hyundai doesn’t give you the option of better efficiency.
Even at a starting price that’s lower than the Genesis Coupe, the Accord Coupe comes equipped with several key features that are missing from its competitor. This includes:
- Dual-zone automatic climate control
- A rearview camera
- A stereo anti-theft feature
