All models feature free-flowing dual cat-back exhaust and an available Torsen limited-slip differential, for the sake of a great drive which has always been the Coupe’s winning card. It also comes with a sport suspension consisting of MacPherson strut dual-link front suspension and a five-link independent rear suspension setup.The front suspension is mounted to the body via a solid subframe.

With the 3.8-liter Lambda DOHC V6 engine which delivers 306-horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque, Genesis Coupe goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 5.5 seconds. Both engines are mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission. The Genesis Coupe 2.0T offers an optional five-speed automatic with SHIFTRONIC while the 3.8-liter V6 offers a ZF six-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC to handle the additional torque. Both automatic transmissions feature steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

One of the best features of this car which is surprising for this class is the high performance Brembo braking system. Brembo four-piston calipers clamp down on 13.4-inch ventilated front brake rotors and 13-inch ventilated rear rotors on R-Spec and 3.8 Track models. All other models get substantial 12.6-inch front ventilated rotors and 12.4-inch rotors in the rear with floating single-piston calipers.
