You don't need to get behind the wheel to know that the Genesis Coupe is fast. All you have to do is take one look at its design. An aggressive, sculpted front fascia and hood generate attention and high-speed stability. The signature drop-beltline rear windows give the driver better over-the-shoulder visibility. While the dual exhaust and LED tail lights create an impressive sound and appearance that means business.
The front fascia design balances form and function while amping up the Coupe's aggressive attitude. The air intake opening is large to feed more cool air to the engine. The large grille has been given the blackout treatment. There's also detail and definition in the hood. Plus integrated fog lights and LED Daytime Running Lights are standard.
The exhaust system with the rear diffuser has dual, asymmetrical chrome exhaust tips, and it's engineered for low back-pressure performance, giving the 3.8-liter engine a high-revving howl. In addition, large tuned mufflers and a sound generator create a more aggressive engine note.
The HID Xenon headlights on 3.8 Ultimate models cast bright, white light, enhancing contrast and visibility while reducing eyestrain. A self-leveling feature maintains the lights' optimal positioning, regardless of the weight of luggage and occupants. And with no physical filament to burn out, HID units last much longer than conventional bulbs.
LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) are standard, giving you even more visual presence on the road.
Approach your Genesis Coupe with the standard Proximity Key in your pocket or purse and enjoy the ultimate convenience - unlock or lock your car and start the engine with the push of a button and go. No more fumbling with the key.

The first thing you'll notice when you take a seat is that you're not cramped. The sport seats with their supportive bolsters are at the center of a well-planned cockpit that tunes out distractions. There's a leather-trimmed sport shift knob that feels like it was made for you. Standard Bluetooth®, an upgraded leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated audio controls, standard auto-dimming rearview mirror and available Blue Link® aren't just luxuries. They help you stay focused on the road ahead.
If the standard AM/FM/CD player with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and iPod®/USB and auxiliary input jacks isn't powerful enough, we've got you covered. The available, 360-watt Infinity audio system with external amplifier, 10 speakers including a subwoofer and HD Radio™ technology, fills the Genesis Coupe with a clean, crisp sound. And steering-wheel-mounted audio controls let you change the station or track without taking your hands off the wheel.
Instead of three rear seats, our engineers used the available space to make it more comfortable for two. The large door openings and a walk-in assist feature on the driver and passenger seats make it easier to get in and out.
Typically, sport coupes sacrifice interior space for performance. Genesis Coupe bucks tradition with plenty of room for passengers and 10 cubic feet of cargo space to ensure you'll never have to decide between the snowboards or your friend's luggage again.
From the vantage point of the Coupe's driver seat, there is much to see. The available navigation system, with its 7-inch touchscreen, acts as a one-stop command-and-control center, sharing space on the center stack with a multi-gauge instrument panel. The instrument cluster has electroluminescent gauges that are spot-on accurate and easy on the eyes. Attractive premium stitching enhances the upper dash. The power-adjustable lumbar support, available on the Ultimate model, makes longer seat times pass as quickly as the miles.
Enthusiasts know, for true high performance you need Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) and lots of power. Genesis Coupe has both. It's equipped with a powerful 3.8L V6 that generates 348 hp and a smooth shifting 8-speed automatic transmission.
The 3.8-liter V6 features Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT), creating low-end torque and high-end power. To go along with its responsive, free-revving character and throaty rumble, the V6 engine has a high-performance intake and exhaust system for more power at all engine speeds. Best of all, its peak performance is a beefy 348 hp. Giddyup!
The only available 8-speed automatic transmission in its class with rev-matching also has a lock-up torque converter, SHIFTRONIC® and paddle shifters. The close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission has been upgraded with carbon synchronizer rings for quicker, smoother and more precise shifts.
It started out as a technique drivers would hone for more precise downshifts and greater performance on the track. Now, when downshifting, the available 8-speed automatic in the Genesis Coupe "blips" the throttle to match the RPM of the gear you are downshifting to.
With its responsive Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) design, the Genesis Coupe has performance built into its DNA. Start with the ultra-rigid unibody chassis and add the available track-tuned suspension, Torsen limited-slip differential, 19-inch Euroflange dark-graphite-finish alloy wheels and Brembo® braking system, and there's no doubt this is a sport coupe with a purpose. Plus R-Spec drivers drop into special sport seats with large side bolsters, for added confidence and security during cornering maneuvers.
A stronger frame means better handling and dynamic response, too. The steel chassis gives the suspension a stable platform that keeps you in contact with the road and simultaneously dampens unpleasant vibrations that would otherwise resonate throughout the cabin.
We scrutinized some of the world's finest coupes before developing our sport- and track-tuned suspension calibrations. All models feature dual-link MacPherson struts for more precise steering, plus a 5-link multi-link rear suspension for optimal grip over uneven road surfaces and during extreme lateral loads. Even during spirited driving, gas-pressurized shock absorbers assure firm, consistent control.
The Ultimate and R-Spec models feature track-tuned spring, damper and stabilizer bar settings that satisfy the most demanding enthusiast. Camber adjustment bolts let drivers make additional suspension tuning changes. But that's not all. There's a rear Torsen limited-slip differential that guarantees better control and acceleration out of tight corners. Sticky, staggered fitment performance tires on 19-inch Euroflange dark-graphite-finish alloy wheels. And higher-performance Brembo® brakes, for when you just want to pull over and take it all in.
Some might purchase the Coupe based on its looks and performance alone. Well, there's nothing wrong with that. But a sophisticated safety structure beginning with its advanced high-strength steel frame, strategically placed crumple zones, side-impact door beams and six airbags make its safety features as compelling as its looks.
Traditionally, both Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control System (TCS) work together to help ensure that understeer and oversteer are kept in check in a variety of driving conditions, performing hundreds of calculations per second to reduce wheelspin or skidding. But our driver-selectable 3-stage ESC and TCS also offers you several choices when it comes to personalizing its characteristics and performance.
When you accelerate to the point where your wheels spin or find yourself driving on slippery surfaces, we've got you covered. The available Torsen limited-slip differential divides the engine output evenly between the driven wheels for maximum grip and directional stability.
Even the best drivers can do little to avoid rear-end collisions. Genesis Coupe features active front head restraints that move instantaneously forward and up during a rear impact, helping to reduce the effects of potential whiplash. The restraint mechanism uses body weight alone to react in a collision.
Sooner or later, you're going to have to get out of the Genesis Coupe. And when you do, distance sensors that are embedded into the rear bumper make parking as simple as driving. They produce a warning sound for the driver if the car gets too close to any object they detect.
Passive safety is further enhanced by six standard airbags, including advanced driver and front passenger airbags. There are also side-impact and side-curtain airbags to make sure you're protected.
In pushing the limits of technology, our goal never changed: Give you the best driving experience on four wheels and between two doors. That includes a superior audio system that keeps you entertained, Blue Link® technology that keeps you better connected to the road and your friends, and a steering wheel that does more than let you change direction.
If the standard AM/FM/CD player with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and iPod®/USB and auxiliary input jacks isn't powerful enough, we've got you covered. The available 360-watt Infinity audio system with external amplifier, 10 speakers including a subwoofer and HD Radio™ technology, fills the Genesis Coupe with a clean, crisp sound. And steering-wheel-mounted audio controls let you change the station or track without taking your hands off the wheel.
The available navigation system, with its 7-inch touchscreen, acts as a one-stop command-and-control center. Use voice recognition or the interactive touchscreen to get directions without being distracted. Or search for nearby businesses like gas stations, ATMs or restaurants using NavTraffic and SiriusXM® Data Services. It also gives you real-time updates on current traffic situations, the weather, or even stocks and sports.
The Genesis Coupe is transformed by the amazing convenience and capability of Blue Link®. Designed to let you navigate, connect and discover on the go, this available feature is packed with technology that offers big benefits including Automatic Collision Notification and Assistance, SOS Emergency Assistance and Destination Search powered by Google™. And that's just to name a few.
