16th November, 2011

The new Genesis Coupe is an improved version of Hyundai’s first rear-wheel drive sports coupe, introduced in October 2008. As its sportier new look implies, the upgraded Genesis Coupe offers a more dynamic and powerful driving experience.

The eye-catching grille design completes a bold and sporty front look and enhances cooling performance. Additionally, sleeker head lamps, LED positioning lamps, an LED rear combination lamp and distinct character lines reinforce Genesis Coupe’s high-performance sports car image.

High-quality materials and metal accents provide a sporty and sophisticated high-tech interior, while the standard multi-gauge located on the centre fascia gives the driver instant feedback for a more dynamic driving experience.

The new Genesis Coupe comes with a choice of two engines including the Theta 2.0 TCI (Turbo Charged Intercooler) and the Lambda 3.8 V6 GDi (Gasoline Direct Injection) which significantly increases performance and efficiency by directly injecting fuel into the cylinder.

The new Genesis Coupe delivers maximum output of 257 kW and maximum torque of 400 Nm. Compared to the previous Genesis Coupe’s engine, the Lambda 3.8 MPi, this represents an improvement of 35 kW and 39 Nm respectively.

A larger radiator intercooler for the high-performance 2.0 TCI’s turbocharger cools air more effectively and enhances driving responsiveness. The twin-scroll turbo allows for better performance and durability.

Compared to its predecessor, the Theta 2.0 TCi increases maximum output and maximum torque by 48 kW and 78 Nm to 202 kW and 373 Nm, respectively.

The more powerful engines are matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission, bringing smoother shifting and a more dynamic driving performance to the Genesis Coupe.

A sound generator has been applied to the Lamda 3.8 GDi model variants to enhance the driving experience.

Although the face-lifted Genesis Coupe will not be sold in Australia, Hyundai Motor Company Australia has confirmed that the next all-new generation of Genesis Coupe will be introduced locally (timeframe not set as yet).
