Styled to Thrill
Genesis Coupe projects a unique sports car look with strong character lines, pronounced shoulders and dynamic details. The aggressive, wedge-like silhouette, short overhangs and long wheelbase give it classic sports car proportions.
Inside and out, the design is thoroughly provocative and emotionally-charged. The exterior front styling radiates a sporty character. Its dynamic, voluminous hood, carefully articulated bumper surfacing and sharply distinctive headlamps combine to give hints of strong performance.
Two signature design elements truly define the Genesis Coupe's highly distinctive look and escalate its dynamic appeal: the emotionally sculpted Z-line and the unique day light opening of the quarter glass. The rear view with its two-tone bumper and dual square-shaped exhaust tips project a solid, vigorous look.
The interior with its aggressive and futuristic design reflects sophistication and sportiness in every detail. Powerful and elegant, exclusive materials have been applied to the interior to create a unique atmosphere. Dual cylinder-type gauge cluster, a floor-mounted accelerator pedal and engine start button are among the innovative design touches.
A full bucket-type driver's seat provides excellent support at all critical points. For convenient entry and egress, the front seat backrests feature walk-in memory design so that the original position of the backrest is restored on entry or egress of the rear seat passengers. Rear seats can be made to quickly fold down with the folding lever in the cabin or the folding button in the trunk.
With its 2820 mm wheelbase (290 mm longer than the Tiburon/Coupe), Genesis Coupe's cabin provides more headroom, legroom and shoulder room than its predecessor.
The 55/45 front-rear weight distribution endows Genesis Coupe with near-ideal balance for exceptional handling and more refined steering characteristics.
The advantages of a rear-wheel-drive setup include:
- Transfer of weight to the rear axle during heavy acceleration which improves traction
- Larger steering radius as there are no complicated drive shaft joints in the front wheels so that they can now be turned farther
- Better handling and braking thanks to even weight distribution so that the front and rear tires and springs are placed under more even loads, allowing for more grip during cornering and braking
