The refreshed Genesis Coupe a more menacing demeanor, an aggressively redesigned front grille, headlights, LED daytime lights, fog lights and hood heat extractor cues. The view reveals new, 18- and 19-inch alloy wheel with deeper dimensional Finally, the rear taillights a visual spark via premium LED and new contours.

Of course, the traditional sport coupe proportions with a long wheelbase and front and rear overhangs a classic wedge-like profile. Coupe’s bodyside character is an innovative Z-shaped design integrates seamlessly with a drop-beltline rear window

Genesis Coupe’s arching and tapering greenhouse highlight the profile and emphasize the car’s shoulders and wide stance. To the aggressive sports car look, the between the fenders and the greenhouse has maximized.

Enlarged openings in the fascia allow for better breathing along with a aggressive look. Dual exhaust tips integrated the blackout rear diffuser complete the performance message the rear.


Genesis Coupe engines significant technology upgrades, up its new design statement with performance gains. The 3.8-liter DOHC V6 engine adds direct-injection technology, adding 42 (a generous 14 percent increase) and 29 of torque (an eleven percent Peak horsepower rises to 348 at RPM, with peak increasing to 295 lb.-ft. at 5,300 RPM on fuel.

In addition, lambda-engine technology gives this V6 the to run on regular fuel. This new engine will easily the Genesis Coupe from to 60 mph in the lower five-second range on its way to an 149 mph electronically-limited top speed. The Lambda V6 system also now employs an sound induction pipe the cabin to ensure this aural character matches its appeal.

To further broaden the band, the 3.8-liter engine Dual Continuously Variable Timing (Dual CVVT) and a Intake System (VIS) helps cylinders breathe efficiently at both low and high The combination of high-pressure, precisely-metered injection with efficient breathing results in outstanding response and off-the-line acceleration with remarkable fuel The V6 engine uses an alloy and cylinder heads for lighter and thermal efficiency and features quiet timing chains no scheduled maintenance.

All these technologies serve to Genesis Coupe 3.8 an impressive ratio of only 10.0:1; lower than the more Infiniti G37 and BMW 335i.

Not to be outdone by its brother, the turbocharged, intercooled DOHC inline four-cylinder a new twin-scroll design for its turbocharger in to a larger intercooler with thermal efficiency. The twin-scroll is more efficient at recovering energy and produces cooler temperatures than the former design.

In addition, the twin-scroll is precise, with improved efficiency, reduced turbo leaner air/fuel ratios and evenly distributed pressure in the ports, resulting in simultaneous efficiency and emissions improvements. a 53 percent larger intercooler reduces intake temperatures, denser, cooler air from to develop even more

This turbocharged engine benefits from Dual on both intake and exhaust The 2.0-liter turbo now generates 274 (a massive 30 percent increase) and 275 of torque (an impressive 23 percent on premium fuel. And, many competitive turbo this turbo’s anti-knock automatically adjust ignition and engine mapping to run perfectly on fuel, yielding 260 horsepower at RPM and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,000

The turbo engine also a cast-aluminum cylinder block and head. All these improvements the Genesis Coupe 2.0T a ratio of 12.3, superior to the Scion FR-S sports and the Honda Civic Si.

Both V6 and engines also feature baritone-sounding dual cat-back to complement more efficient on the intake side. To ensure all this new power is evenly to the pavement, Genesis Coupe offers an available Torsen® differential on R-Spec and Track


2013 Coupe Body Shell

Genesis Coupe’s body makes generous use of ultra-high-tensile The rear-wheel drive powertrain provides a well-balanced 55:45 weight distribution for the 2.0T, and for the 3.8 model.


No sport coupe chassis give the perception of being by its powertrain, and Genesis Coupe is no to this rule. Spring, and bushing ratings all have precisely recalibrated to match new powertrains with better feel, more precise motion control and improved comfort.

Genesis Coupe employs a strut dual-link front and a five-link rear suspension The front suspension is mounted to the via a solid subframe that is and stronger than a comparable component would be. To help body roll and tune the Coupe’s at-the-limit handling for predictability, 23-mm diameter and 19-mm diameter rear bars are fitted.

While all Genesis Coupe offer a true rear-drive driving experience, the high-performance Coupe R-Spec and Track raise the bar even higher differentiated, track-tuned suspension The R-Spec/Track suspension features firmer front spring (seven percent) and rear rates (eleven percent), matched damper rates.

The Coupe R-Spec/Track models deliver a significant increase in control over other of the Genesis Coupe via thicker bars (24mm front/20mm For 2013, all Genesis Coupes improved low-velocity-control dampers for ride comfort coupled improved body control.

In all R-Spec and Track models now front strut camber bolts that can be easily in the front strut assembly at owner’s discretion. These adjustment bolts allow -1.5 degrees of negative camber adjustment for sharper, responsive apex turn-in and understeer reduction in competitive

Of course, superb Genesis structural rigidity sets the foundation for dynamic precision, of specific suspension calibration.

Hydraulic, RPM-sensing rack-and-pinion has been recalibrated, delivering improved road feel and response to driver inputs precision. To further optimize ergonomics, telescopic adjustment has been added to tilt for 2013.


Both are mated to standard six-speed transmissions which have extensively refined to provide driver-friendly shift gating and weighting precision. The clutch feel, and engagement characteristics have been refined for shifting ease and feel. engines now offer an in-house-developed automatic with paddle-shift manual-shifting capability.

Each has been specifically tuned to its engine’s unique power and curve characteristics.
