Genesis Coupe's chassis has been optimized for dynamic handling and more accurate steering feeling. Dual MacPherson struts in the front improve maneuverability by reducing the offset between the wheel center and the tie rods and increasing the caster angle.
For securing body rigidity while cornering, a front tower strut bar is optional. The rear rides on a five-link setup with reduced toe variation during acceleration, braking and cornering thus yielding precise maneuverability.
The Limited Slip Differential features a torque sensor for improved ride and handling under any road conditions. The rear differential transfer case sits atop a three-point mounting system (including a hydraulic bush mounting) for reduced noise and vibration
Mono tube-type shock absorbers have separate gas and oil chambers to enable stable damping force resulting in better ride and road holding performance.
The use of crash durable adhesives in critical areas has increased dynamic torsional rigidity by 15 percent enabling better ride and handling, increased safety performance and reduced NVH. The Coupe is one of the quietest cars in its class thanks to special reinforcements and applications of various poly-urethane foam as well as sound interceptive materials that have helped eliminate both noise and vibration.
The use of high strength steel enhances safety and overall performance by achieving a stiffer, lighter body structure. When combined with the six-airbag system, active headrests, Genesis Coupe is expected to earn a five-star crash safety rating.
The Genesis Coupe promises to stop just as fast as it goes. Premium high performance disc brakes from Brembo will be available as part of an optional track-use performance package. For the Genesis Coupe's front 18-inch wheels, Brembo engineers developed 13.4-inch × 1.1-inch rotors (340 mm × 28 mm) and four-pot fixed calipers (42 mm + 42 mm) while the rear setup features 13.0-inch × 0.78-inch rotors (330 mm × 20 mm) gripped by four-pot fixed calipers (32 mm + 28 mm).
At the highest level of international motorsports, Brembo's signature fixed monobloc brake calipers and oversized rotors are recognized as delivering the ultimate in braking performance. The Italian brake manufacturer is acknowledged as the world leader in high performance braking systems and is a supplier to the world's best-known formula racing teams as well as Italian and German manufacturers of supercars and sports cars.
