Most people do not think of acceleration and speed when it comes to the Hyundai brand, but the Genesis coupe’s 3.8-liter V6 engine offers impressive power in this vehicle. The 348 horsepower bursts the Genesis to 60 miles per hour in just 5.3 seconds, keeping this car in competition with the larger V8 engines of other cars. Available with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, the redesigned Genesis can be outfitted with Hyundai’s R-Spec or Ultimate trim packages to provide further performance upgrades while remaining well below the $40,000 limit.
