The 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, for sale in Portland at Dick’s Hillsboro Hyundai, strikes a menacing demeanor, with an aggressively designed front fascia, grille, headlights, LED daytime running lights, fog lights and hood with heat extractor cues. The side view reveals aggressive 18- and 19-inch alloy wheel designs with deep dimensional sculpting. Finally, the rear taillights provide a visual spark via premium LED illumination. Traditional rear-drive sport coupe proportions are clearly evident, with a long wheelbase and short front and rear overhangs producing a classic wedge-like profile. Genesis Coupe’s bodyside character line is an innovative “Z”-shaped design that integrates seamlessly with a unique, drop-beltline rear window graphic. Heated outside mirrors, fog lights, and LED daytime running lights are standard on all Genesis Coupes.
Genesis Coupe’s arching roofline and tapering greenhouse highlight the exterior profile and emphasize the car’s broad shoulders and wide stance. To complete the aggressive sports car look, the depth between the fenders and the greenhouse is maximized. Large openings in the front fascia allow for optimal engine breathing coupled with an aggressive look. Dual asymmetrical exhaust tips integrated with the blackout rear diffuser treatment complete the performance message from the rear.
For 2015, the high-performance 3.8-liter, direct-injected V6 engine is standard in all Genesis Coupes. This proven powerplant offers sophisticated engine technologies, with direct-injection and dual continuously variable valve timing.
The 3.8-liter Lambda DOHC V6 engine produces 348 peak horsepower at 6,400 RPM, with peak torque of 295 lb.-ft. at 5,100 RPM on premium fuel. In addition, Lambda-engine anti-knock technology gives this V6 the versatility to run on regular fuel whenever required. This direct-injected engine will easily propel the Genesis Coupe from zero to 60 mph in the lower five-second range on its way to an impressive 149-mph electronically-limited top speed. The Lambda V6 intake system also employs an intake sound induction pipe into the cabin to ensure this engine’s aural character matches its visceral appeal.
To further broaden the power band, the 3.8-liter engine uses Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (Dual CVVT) and a Variable Intake System (VIS) that helps cylinders breathe most efficiently at both low and high RPM. The combination of high-pressure, precisely-metered direct injection with efficient cylinder breathing results in outstanding throttle response and off-the-line acceleration coupled with remarkable fuel efficiency. The V6 engine uses an alloy block and cylinder heads for lighter weight and thermal efficiency and features durable, quiet timing chains with no scheduled maintenance.
All these technologies serve to give Genesis Coupe 3.8 an impressive power-to-weight ratio of only 10.1:1, significantly lower than the more expensive Infiniti Q60 and BMW 435i.
