Hyundai Genesis Coupe could stick around for 2 or 3 years, its future is in danger

Article by Andrew Christian, on August 13, 2014

It appears that the future of Genesis Coupe doesn’t look so bright as Hyundai is currently wrestling with the direction of its smaller rear-wheel drive cars. As you may know already, the Genesis Coupe lost its 2.0-liter turbocharged engine from its powertrain lineup and its shape will remain the same for at least two years.

For the 2015MY, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe models are offered as standard with the 3.8-liter V6 engine that generates 348 hp at 6,400 rpm and 295 lb-ft of torque at 5,100 rpm.

The engine is able to push the vehicle from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in the lower five-second range, all the way to a top speed electronically limited at 149 mph or 240 km/h.

Hyundai Genesis Coupe is more powerful than its rivals, the 2015 Infiniti Q60 Coupe (3.7-liter V6 and 330 hp) or the 2015 BMW 435i Coupe (3.0-liter I6 turbo and 300 hp).

Genesis Coupe comes as an option with an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle-shifters for Shiftronic manual-shifting capability. Still, Hyundai offers as standard the six-speed manual transmission with carbon synchronizer rings for smooth shift actions. [source: automotive news - sub. required]
