With four-cylinder power
Meanwhile, the DOHC turbocharged 4 cilindors and internally cooled 2.0-liter features a new design double entrance to the turbocharger, and a larger with improved thermal efficiency freshener.

The twin-scroll design is more efficient in recovering energy from the exhaust output and produces temperatures in the colder than the previous design of a single entry cylinders.
Furthermore, the design of double entry is more precise, with improved combustion efficiency, output loss smaller, a better air / fuel ratio and a better distribution in the exhaust ducts which results in simultaneous improvements in power and efficiency, and reduced emissions.
Furthermore, a cooler 53% larger inlet temperatures reduces even more by providing a colder denser air with which to develop even more power.
This turbocharged engine also features Dual CVVT on both camshafts input and the output. The 2.0-liter turbo now generates 274 horsepower (an increase of 30%) and 275 lb.-ft. of torque (up 23%) with premium fuel.
And, unlike many of the turbo competing engines, “anti-knock” sensor of this turbo automatically adjust the ignition timing and template engine running to work seamlessly with regular gasoline, making 260 hp force at 6,000 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,000 RPM.
The turbo engine also features a cylinder block and cylinder heads in cast aluminum. All these improvements will bring to the Genesis Coupe 2.0T strength-weight ratio of 12.3, above the sports coupe yet to come Scion FR-S and Honda Civic Si.
Both V6 and 4-cylinder also have deeper roars supplied by their tailpipes to complement more efficient breathing at the point of entry.
To ensure that all this new power comes evenly distributed to the pavement, the Generis Coupe also has available a limited differential Torsen® R-Spec and Track models slip.
The Genesis Coupe with four-cylinder engine has an output of 21 miles per gallon of gasoline in the city, 30 highway and a combined average of 24.
Suspension and brakes
No well-built chassis sports coupe should give the impression of being overwhelmed by its powertrain, and Genesis Coupe is no exception to this rule.
The springs, dampers and bushings have been precisely recalibrated to match these new powertrains with better road feel, more precise control of body roll and ride comfort.
The Genesis Coupe employs a MacPherson front suspension and dual-link rear suspension of five links. The front suspension is mounted to the body via a solid subframe that is lighter and much stronger than it would be a component of multiple parts.
To help reduce body roll and tune the Genesis Coupe to the limit handling for maximum predictability front stabilizer bars 23 mm in diameter and 19 mm are used in the rear.
While all Genesis Coupe models offer a truly sporty driving experience, high performance models and R-Spec Genesis Coupe Track stop up even more with the suspension calibrations adjusted for clues.
The R-Spec / Track suspension features both firmer front springs with (seven percent) and rear (eleven percent), with matched damper.
The R-Spec / Track Genesis Coupe models also have a significant increase in the control of body roll compared to other versions of the Genesis Coupe by thicker stabilizer bars (24mm front / 20mm rear).
By 2013, all Genesis Coupes have improved control of the shock absorbers at low speed for a more refined shift coupled with an improved body control.
In addition, all R-Spec and Track models now have tilt adjustment screws front strut, which can be easily installed at the discretion of the driver.
These tilt adjustment screws allow approximately -1.5 degrees of negative adjustment on the front strut, for a sharper and faster response and a significant reduction in driving competitive events.
Of course, the structural rigidity of the Genesis Coupe creates the fundamental foundation for dynamic precision, regardless of specific suspension calibration.
And to control all this power, all models have ventilated front brake rotors 12.6 12.4 inch rotors in the rear with floating single piston calipers one.
Hyundai offered as an additional option, a brake system Brembo four-piston that engages the front brake rotors and 13.4-inch vented 13-inch rotors in the rear for R-Spec and Track models.
