2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Review at 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track Review

In this new episode of the Ignition show, Motortrend‘s Carlos Lago heads to the track to test the new 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. It’s the Track-spec 3.8 liter Geni Coupe here, now with 348hp, six-speed manual gearbox, wider tracks, bigger brakes, a Torsen limited slip diff, and thicker anti roll bars. Carlos sets about testing the car’s capabilities on the track.

The new Genesis Coupe also features a while new face, but it’s still not a pretty coupe. But then you wouldn’t by this car for the way it looks. The reason you buy it is because you can’t go much faster for 30 grand.

For 2013 both Hyundai Genesis Coupe engines receive significant technology upgrades, backing up its new design statement with impressive performance gains. The 3.8-liter Lambda DOHC V6 engine adds sophisticated direct-injection technology, adding 42 horsepower (a generous 14 percent increase) and 29 lb.-ft of torque (an eleven percent increase). Peak horsepower rises to 348 at 6,400 RPM, with peak torque increasing to 295 lb.-ft. at 5,300 RPM on premium fuel. In addition, lambda-engine anti-knock technology gives this V6 the versatility to run on regular fuel. This new 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 now 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.
