2016 Dodge Challenger vs. 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
If buying a powerful muscle car is on your list of things to do, it’s hard to think of a better choice than the 2016 Dodge Challenger, now available to Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver drivers at Derrick Dodge. To demonstrate the superiority of this potent performer, we’ve compared it to the popular 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, one of its segment rivals. In every test, from power to available features, the Challenger easily outclasses its competition. Read on to see for yourself how this dynamo measures up, then stop by Derrick Dodge to take one out for a drive today.
The Dodge provides buyers with more options for powerful engines than the Hyundai does:
2016 Dodge Challenger – The Challenger can be powered by a 5.7L V8 capable of 375 hp and 410 lb.-ft. of torque, a 6.4L HEMI V8 that generates 485 hp and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, or the legendary 6.2L HEMI Hellcat V8 engine that can generate 707 hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.
2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe – The Genesis offers drivers just one engine option in the 3.8L DOHC V6 engine that is capable of just 348 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of peak torque – less than half that of the HEMI Hellcat engine offered by the Challenger.
The Dodge Challenger is engineered to handle the power it delivers better than the Hyundai:
2016 Dodge Challenger – The Challenger SRT is equipped with 15.4-inch front and 13.8-inch rear rotors, which can bring the vehicle to a stop in just 151 feet from a speed of 70 MPH. This braking power, combined with the option for large 20-inch tires and a driver-adjustable suspension system, gives drivers more control of the Challenger in all driving conditions.
2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe – The Genesis Coupe R-Spec offers the largest brakes the Hyundai can be equipped with: 13.4-inch front and 13-inch rear. This system required 163 feet to bring the vehicle to a full stop in Car and Driver testing, 12 feet more than the Dodge. With a maximum tire size of 19-inches and no driver-adjustable suspension system, the Hyundai Coupe could be more difficult to control in rainy weather or on slippery roads.
The Dodge offers numerous upscale features that drivers of the Genesis won’t have access to, such as:
2016 Dodge Challenger – Drivers can add options like air conditioned seats, voice command for hands-free control of radio and navigation, and adaptive cruise control to improve comfort and make it easier to stay focused on the road and not vehicle systems.
2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe – The Genesis Coupe doesn’t offer air conditioned seats or a heated steering wheel, meaning a less comfortable ride when the temperature outside is less than ideal. With no access to voice control or adaptive cruise control, drivers will have to take their attention off the road in order to adjust speed, change music, or look for directions.
