It is NOT a Tiburon

Photos and words by Brad Sillars   Let’s be real, Hyundai caught a bad rap some years ago.  With a fleet of econo-class grocery-getters and their flagship Tiburon, they were a joke in the enthusiast community.    Enter the Genesis Coupe.  FR layout with an option for a 2.0L turbo’d
