2017 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2017 Honda Accord Coupe

Historically, Honda vehicles have been known to be very reliable and easy to live with. However, most models have also been known to be boring. If you are searching for a vehicle to buy, the 2017 Honda Accord Coupe might seem like a good idea, since it has many technological features to make it fun and is still a Honda so you can expect it to be reliable. However, this should not fool you into glossing over the 2017 Hyundai Genesis. When compared to the Honda, the Hyundai has a lot more to offer, and is even more reliable than the Honda. These are some of the facts that support this claim.

Design & Style

The Honda Accord looks aerodynamic, with a low and flat profile. Unfortunately, it is not appealing in any other respect. The exterior design and styling is boring, while the interior is drab as well. This is in contrast to the 2017 Hyundai Genesis which has an appealing profile with smooth flowing lines and a soft stance. Its airy interior also has a premium feel due to the use of high quality material during design.

Technology & Safety

As is the case with most vehicles in this day and age, some of the common features present in both vehicles include traction control, seatbelt pretensioners, antilock braking systems and traction control. However, the 2017 Hyundai Genesis is packed with loads more to ensure that the occupants will be safe, and that driving the car will be a pleasure. Some of these include lane departure assist, smart traction control, heated seats, four-way climate control, a sunroof and moonroof, a heated steering wheel and more. Most of these are standard options, so you don’t have to pay more to have them as is the case with the Honda.


The base model of the 2017 Honda Accord Coupe has a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine producing 325 horsepower for the platinum edition of the vehicle. This is connected to a six-speed transmission.

The most basic 2017 Hyundai Genesis has a 3.3-liter V-6 petrol engine capable of producing an impressive 293 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission unit with SHIFTRONIC technology, overdrive lockup, a torque converter and shift lock. Overall, the 2017 Hyundai Genesis is much faster than the Ford, and also has better handling as well. The responsive engine also makes the Hyundai more fun to drive as well. You can also choose from a range of engine and drivetrain options, to end up with a Hyundai that is perfect for you.

The Bottom Line

While the Honda has a lot of history to back up its credentials, you can’t ignore the fact that the 2017 Hyundai Genesis still has a lot more to offer in comparison. Whether as a passenger or as a driver, the 2017 Hyundai Genesis is fun to be in, and gives the impression of quality not only to the people inside the car but to those looking at the car as well. If you are interested in a car that has a stately look and which won’t let you down, the 2017 Hyundai Genesis would be the one to go with.
