2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe


The 2016 Honda Accord Coupe and the 2016 Hyundai Genesis are unique, sporty coupes. While they’re not direct competitors – the Genesis is more of a sports car, while the Accord Coupe is a two-door version of the midsize Accord Sedan – they’re definitely both worth considering if you’re looking for a stylish way to get around the Elgin and Crystal Lake, IL area. Take a look at how they compare below!

Fuel Economy

If you’re hoping to save money at the pump, you’ll find the 2016 Honda Accord the better choice. The Accord earns an EPA estimated 26 mpg city/35 mp highway* with the 2.4L four-cylinder and continuously variable transmission, or 21 mpg city/32 mpg highway with the 3.5L V6 and six-speed automatic. The 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is rated at 16 mpg city/25 mpg highway with the eight-speed automatic and standard V6.


The 2016 Honda Accord Coupe has earned a five-star overall crash test safety rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, along with ‘Good’ scores in all crash tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Accord is available with the Honda Sensing system, which includes forward collision warning prevention, lane departure prevention, and more, and earns it a ‘Superior’ front crash prevention rating from the IIHS. Nothing like that is available in the Hyundai, and the 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has not been rated by either agency.

Seating and Cargo Space

The 2016 Honda Accord simply offers more passenger space than the 2016 Hyundai Genesis, with more second row legroom and headroom. The Accord can also seat five, while the Hyundai Genesis is limited to four passengers.

The Honda Accord has space in the trunk for up to 13.7 cubic feet of cargo, while the Hyundai Genesis Coupe will only pack 10.0 cubic feet of cargo.


The 2016 Honda Accord comes standard with features like:

  • Second row head restraints

  • Dual zone climate control

  • Hill Start Assist

  • A rearview camera

None of those features are standard on the 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe.


Pricing is always an important factor to consider, and the 2016 Honda Accord Coupe starts at $23,775 MSRP in the LX-S trim with the six-speed manual transmission, while the 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe starts at $26,950 MSRP.
