Choosing the 2014 Honda Accord Coupe or Hyundai Genesis Coupe?

2014 Honda AccordWhen it comes to vehicles like the 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, we know that price can be an important factor, but at the end of the day, we think that the 2014 Honda Accord Coupe is a better choice for our Mid-Missouri drivers. Made to be more affordable, better equipped, and more fuel efficient, the Accord has little trouble outpacing the Genesis.

Honda Offers a Fuel Efficient Coupe

Many drivers choose the coupe body design for style, and yet we know that practicality matters as well—which means you’re probably concerned with the fuel efficiency of both of these vehicles. The 27 mpg highway fuel economy of the Genesis may not be bad, but the Accord has no trouble eclipsing it.

The 2014 Accord Coupe LX with automatic transmission earns an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 34 mpg.* Those savings will add up quickly with every trip to the gas station.

The Accord is Safe and Well-Equipped

When it comes to midsize cars, we know that safety is an important factor, and the NHTSA ranks the Accord Coupe higher than the Genesis Coupe in some key crash tests, such as:

  • Front Passenger Crash Tests
  • Front Side Crash Tests
  • Rollover Safety Rating

The Honda has earned five stars on each of these tests while the Genesis sits at four-star ratings in these three crash tests. When you add on the standard features of the Accord—such as Bluetooth, a touchscreen infotainment system, and a rearview camera—we think it’s clear which vehicle comes out ahead.
