Hyundai Genesis Coupe 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Hyundai Genesis Coupe 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Genesis Coupe zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Genesis Coupe 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Hyundai Genesis Coupe engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe first graced our TV screens three years ago, drifting impressively and attracting lots of attention due to its affordability and fun driving. The model was a pleasant gift from Hyundai’s truncated rear-wheel-drive sedan platform. However, it was soon realized that the vehicle lacked refinement on the streets with the 4-cylinder turbocharged engine struggling to impress without aftermarket help. This called for a better car, one that didn’t require extra tweaking.

The 3418 pound Hyundai Genesis Coupe takes 5.9 seconds to hit the 60mph mark. At 99mph, the manual edition covers a quarter of a mile in 14.4 seconds. The upgraded 3.6 liters, V6 optional coupe version can churn up to 348 hp and 295 lb-ft assisted by its direct fuel injection system. The engine does play an appreciable soundtrack compared to its 2.0T counterpart.

Direct injection contributes an additional mile-per-gallon to both highway and city ratings, now at 27 and 18 respectively in the manual. The R-Spec manual, which has a 3.8-liter engine and weighs about 3482 pounds, takes 5.2 seconds to hit 60mph. It covers a quarter of a mile in 13.4 seconds at 104 mph. All models are capped at 151 mph.  

The pricier models feature firmer suspensions, Summer Bridgestone-equipped 19-inch wheels, and Brembo brakes. The R-Spec, however, falls short when it comes to luxury. Both the 2.0T and the R-Spec stop at 163 feet when going 70mph and above. The 2.0T has lesser weight at the front, exhibiting 0.91g around the skidpad while the V6 boasts 0.90.

The 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has plenty of leg and headroom at the front, with a spacious trunk at the back and excellent cabin materials. At first, it does feel like a sports car but also boasts a secondary feeling of luxury. The V6 features a pleasant and nicely-tuned growl that’s not overbearing at all. The Genesis Coupe is quite suitable on the racetrack and can be used for long weekend hauls as well as commuting.

Standard equipment features fog lamps, an auto-dimming inside mirror, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry, LED daytime running lights, A/C, cruise control, heated mirrors, a trip computer and an iPod/USB interface. Higher trims feature the three-year Hyundai Assurance Connected Car telematics which comes with the BlueLink service. The new 6.0-inch color center-stack display works well to replace the dot-matrix display found in older models.

An upgrade to the R-Spec gives 19-inch wheels on summer tires, a Torsen limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes, track-tuned suspension and loads of appearance extras.

The Ultimate version adds onto what the R-Spec has with an additional navigation system, leather upholstery, reverse parking sensors, 360-watt audio system, HID headlights, heated front seats, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen display.

The Genesis Coupe makes us wish Hyundai had started out like this when it first launched the coupe version. With much to be admired and appreciated, it does still leave a lot of room for improvement. Vehicle enthusiasts will, however, love its reliability and affordability.
