  9. 348-Horsepower, 3.8-liter Direct-injected V6 engine now Standard New, entry-level V6 manual and auto Models added to Line-up >>CLICK HERE<< To View the Full 2015 Genesis Coupe Media Kit FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Hyundai’s popular Genesis Coupe continues to enhance its appeal in the fiercely-competitive sport coupe segment. For 2015, Genesis Coupe makes its 348-horspower, 3.8-liter direct-injected V6 standard, with new base 3.8-liter V6 manual and automatic transmission models added to its line-up. The high-performance V6 engine in every Genesis Coupe ensures its buyer maximum powertrain performance at a very affordable price point. This critical enhancement ensures Genesis Coupe continues to carry its recognized market success as a rear-drive, high-output performance sport coupe for everyday enthusiasts. 2015 Genesis Highlights348-horsepower, direct-injected 3.8-liter V6 engine standardNew base 3.8L V6 manual and automatic transmission models added 4-cylinder powertrain no longer available 3.8 Grand Touring model no longer available LED daytime running lights standard 3.8 R-Spec model adds the following standard equipment:Proximity key with push-button start Automatic climate control AGGRESSIVE DESIGN TO MATCH DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE The Genesis Coupe 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. POWERTRAIN 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. The V6 engine also features deep, baritone-sounding dual cat-back exhaust to complement efficient breathing on the intake side. To ensure that all this power is evenly distributed to the pavement, Genesis Coupe also offers an available Torsen® limited-slip differential on R-Spec and Ultimate models. TRANSMISSIONS The automatic transmission has 8-speeds, with standard paddle-shifters for SHIFTRONIC® manual-shifting capability. In addition, the 8-speed automatic precisely rev-matches engine RPM to the exact selected-gear speed, for smooth downshifts into corners and superb dynamic balance, while an easy-to-read LCD readout on the instrument panel shows the selected gear at all times for the driver. In addition to the steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, the automatic offers shift capability via the shift lever according to individual driver preference. The V6 engine is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission that features carbon synchronizer rings for smooth shift action and synchronizer durability. Each transmission has been specifically tuned to match the engine’s power and torque curve characteristics. REAR-WHEEL-DRIVE ARCHITECTURE Genesis Coupe’s body shell makes generous use of advanced high-strength steel. The rear-wheel drive powertrain configuration provides a well-balanced 56:44 front-to-rear weight distribution. SPORT-TUNED SUSPENSION No well-tuned sport coupe chassis should give the perception of being overwhelmed by its powertrain, and Genesis Coupe is no exception to this rule. Spring, damper, and bushing ratings all have been precisely calibrated to match these powertrains with superb road feel, precise body motion control and good ride comfort. Genesis Coupe employs a MacPherson strut dual-link front suspension and a five-link rear suspension setup. The front suspension is mounted to the body via a solid subframe that is lighter and stronger than a comparable multi-piece component would be. To help reduce body roll and tune the Genesis Coupe’s at-the-limit handling for maximum predictability, 23mm diameter front and 19mm diameter rear stabilizer bars are fitted. While all Genesis Coupe models offer a true rear-drive sport coupe driving experience, the high-performance Genesis Coupe R-Spec and Ultimate models raise the bar even higher with a differentiated, track-tuned suspension. The R-Spec/Ultimate suspension features both firmer front spring rates (seven percent) and rear spring rates (11 percent), with matched damper rates. The Genesis Coupe R-Spec/Ultimate models also deliver a significant increase in roll control over other versions of the Genesis Coupe via thicker stabilizer bars (24mm front/20mm rear). Genesis Coupes also use low-velocity-control dampers for refined ride comfort coupled with excellent body control. In addition, all R-Spec and Ultimate models receive front strut camber adjustment bolts that can be installed in the front strut assembly at their owner’s discretion. These camber adjustment bolts allow approximately -1.5 degrees of negative front camber adjustment for sharper, more responsive apex turn-in and reduction of understeer. Of course, superb Genesis Coupe structural rigidity sets the fundamental foundation for dynamic precision, regardless of specific suspension calibration. STEERING Hydraulic, RPM-sensing rack-and-pinion steering has been calibrated with a quick, 13.8:1 ratio, delivering both linear feel and agile response to driver inputs. This steering ratio yields intuitive steering response and precision. To further optimize driver ergonomics, tilt and telescopic adjustment is standard. HIGH PERFORMANCE BRAKING SYSTEMS Brembo® four-piston calipers clamp down on fade-resistant 13.4-inch ventilated front brake rotors and 13-inch ventilated rear rotors on both R-Spec and Ultimate 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. UPSCALE INTERIOR The Genesis Coupe interior offers distinctive, upscale features and design cues. The leather steering wheel uses a premium grade of leather. The instrument panel crash pad features a stitched-seam appearance for a distinctly upscale look, and the parking brake lever is leather-wrapped on leather-equipped models. The instrument cluster features an electroluminescent gauge cluster for premium ambience and superior readability. A driver-side rear seat walk-in assist function provides convenient rear seat access from the driver’s side. Convenient seatbelt assist guides make it easy for front passengers to buckle up. Cruise control and floor mats are standard on all Genesis Coupes. A center stack multi-gauge cluster with instantaneous mpg, torque level, and oil temperature is standard on all trims. A center fascia tray with cover provides extra storage, and interior surfaces have a soft touch with low sheen for an up-market feel. Sport front seats with deep side bolsters offer superb lateral support for enthusiastic driving in all trim configurations. R-Spec seat bolsters are even deeper for extra support during spirited driving. Every Genesis Coupe comes equipped with standard proximity key with push-button start, auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink®, and automatic temperature control. Among other premium features are an available Infinity® premium audio system and two-stage front seat heaters. INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES Genesis Coupe offers Xenon high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights for brighter illumination intensity, more daylight-like lighting character and reduced power consumption. In addition, the visual cut lines of these HID headlights are razor sharp, providing maximum nighttime visibility to the driver without the risk of blinding oncoming traffic. Music lovers will welcome the Genesis Coupe’s standard auxiliary input jacks (3.5 mm mini-jack and USB input) to accommodate and charge personal audio devices such as an iPod®. When an iPod or flash drive is connected through the USB port in the center storage compartment, not only does it play music through the vehicle’s audio system, but it also charges the iPod and allows the driver to access tracks with the steering wheel audio controls. This system also allows both driver and passengers to easily view song/artist/title information and control the music from the audio head unit rather than the iPod unit. This safety-oriented function helps the driver to keep his or her focus on the road at all times. SEGMENT-LEADING STANDARD SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES In keeping with Hyundai’s focus on offering segment-leading standard safety technologies across its lineup, Genesis Coupe includes a wide range of both active and passive safety features. Standard safety technology includes driver and front passenger advanced frontal airbags, along with front seat-mounted side airbags, side curtain airbags and active front head restraints. Genesis Coupe has strong unibody construction, along with front and rear crumple zones, bodyside reinforcements and five-mph energy-absorbing bumpers. The hood also includes buckling creases and safety stops. All Genesis Coupe models feature standard four-channel ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) to optimize brake performance under various dynamic loading conditions. The system also includes Brake Assist, which provides maximum ABS-level braking force when a panic stop is detected. Electronic Stability Control (ESC), one of the industry’s most effective life-saving technologies, is standard in all Genesis Coupe models. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) studies suggest vehicles equipped with ESC experience 56 percent fewer fatalities in single-vehicle crashes than those without it. In a nod to enthusiasts, Genesis Coupe offers a specially-tuned three-stage driver-selectable ESC mode. This new three-stage ESC function offers more options for various driver preferences and road conditions:Full-on ESC function (default mode on start-up) Intermediate ESC function with driver powertrain override control and retained ESC/TCS braking function Full-off ESC function for uninhibited driver vehicle control in all conditions The driver-selectable full-off ESC mode has been calibrated to provide drivers with a larger performance envelope should they choose to participate in competitive events such as autocrosses or track days. The Genesis Coupe anti-lock braking system function (ABS) remains fully functional in all ESC modes to help drivers maintain steering control under adverse braking conditions. CONNECTED CARE AND HYUNDAI BLUE LINK® 2015 Genesis Coupe Ultimate models offer the Hyundai Blue Link® safety, service and infotainment telematics system.

  11. Hyundai Shell World Rally Team to start with three Hyundai i20 WRC cars at Rally Finland, the eighth round of the 2014 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) Thierry Neuville (#7 Hyundai i20 WRC), Juho Hänninen (#8 Hyundai i20 WRC) and Hayden Paddon (#20 Hyundai i20 WRC) will contest their third consecutive rally together The team will take part in the Helsinki Battle this Saturday where WRC legend Marcus Grönholm will share the seat of the Hyundai i20 WRC with Neuville and Hänninen. Alzenau, GermanyAfter a short summer break, the Hyundai Shell World Rally Team will resume its debut campaign in the FIA World Rally Championship at Rally Finland next week, the fastest and most spectacular round of the series. The Alzenau-based team secured a well-earned podium result in Poland last month with all three Hyundai i20 WRC cars finishing a WRC event for the first time. The team will be aiming to continue its steep rate of car development, using the rally to collect more data and information for the remainder of the 2014 WRC season. The team will once again field three Hyundai i20 WRC cars with Belgian pairing Thierry Neuville and Nicolas Gilsoul behind the wheel of car #7, local heroes Juho Hänninen and co-driver Tomi Tuominen returning with the #8 car and New Zealander Hayden Paddon – navigated by John Kennard – at the helm of car #20 (entered under the Hyundai Motorsport N banner). The surface at Rally Finland is formed of compact, smooth gravel roads, where fast and wide sections alternate with narrower and more technical ones. What makes Finland unique, though, are the breath-taking jumps, which can hide bends over the crests. These roads require drivers to be brave, have very precise pace notes and choose the correct line to tackle the jumps. Preparations for Rally Finland were held earlier this month in the region of Jämsä in Finland where the team carried out a test with Neuville and Hänninen, while Paddon will test the Hyundai i20 WRC this coming Sunday. The team’s campaign in Finland will begin this Saturday with the Helsinki Battle, a new event held in the harbour of the Finnish capital city to whet the appetite ahead of next week’s rally, where the WRC stars of today will challenge the legends from the past in a thrilling competition. Two-time World Rally Champion Marcus Grönholm – who had a first experience behind-the-wheel of the Hyundai i20 WRC at a test last winter - will partner Hyundai drivers Neuville and Hänninen at the event, which will also be streamed live on www.wrc.com. After a rewarding event in Poland, the Hyundai Shell World Rally Team is aiming to continue its momentum by finishing Rally Finland with all three Hyundai i20 WRC cars entered into the Jyväskylä-based event. Team Principal Michel Nandan commented: “Our objective for Rally Finland, as always, will be to get as much data and feedback as possible and that means getting all three cars to the finish. We have an excellent driver line-up with Thierry, Juho and Hayden as they all have a good experience of the event and the skills required to cope with the high-speed stages. Juho is a local so he knows exactly what it takes to be successful in Finland, Thierry finished second last year and Hayden won the Group N category back in 2010. We tested in Finland earlier this month so we have a good understanding of the direction we need to take with the Hyundai i20 WRC set-up. We’ll be introducing some updates in Finland, including an upgraded wet liner cylinder block, using one of the ‘jokers’ that we’re allowed during the year by the FIA.” The Hyundai Shell World Rally Team’s lead crew Neuville and Gilsoul scored a podium finish last year at Rally Finland – on only their second outing at the event – and they are determined for another successful event after their Polish podium. Neuville said: “I’m really looking forward to Rally Finland, it’s a very special event with so many spectators and probably the best jumps of the entire season. Nicolas and I finished in second place there last year in only our second time at the event and - after the strong result in Poland last month - we really hope we can continue the good work in Finland as well. The target for us remains the same as always: to do the best we can to bring our Hyundai i20 WRC to the finish and help the team to continue the development of the car.” “Flying Finn” Hänninen has a proven record at Rally Finland having won his class several times in the past (SWRC, PWRC and Group N). Hänninen, will be co-driven once again by his compatriot Tuominen, so the crew has an extra motivation for their home event: Hänninen said: “Because it’s my home rally some people think there is more pressure on my shoulders to achieve a good result but I have learned during my career that stress doesn’t help. On the contrary, I’m even more motivated because it’s the rally I know much better than all the others and everything is much more familiar to Tomi and I. My first Rally Finland was in 2006 and I’ve always had good fights there and had some very good results in my class. Many times you have to be over the limit but it’s really fun and a big pleasure to drive on the stages.” After competing in unknown territory in Italy and Poland, Paddon goes into Rally Finland with confidence as it’s an event he knows quite well. For his co-driver Kennard, Finland is like a home away from home. Paddon said: "It’s going to be nice competing in an event we know well for the first time this season. Finland is almost a second home for me and John as some of the roads are quite similar to New Zealand and I have enjoyed the fast nature of the stages. Of course it will be a big challenge as all the drivers will be very quick and both the speed and the commitment levels are high. From our side we would like to continue our progression from Rally Poland and continue to get closer to the leaders.” Rally Finland is the eighth round of the 13-event WRC season, and marks the end of a four-week break for the WRC. All the action will be spread over four competitive days and a total of 360km divided into 23 stages. This year’s itinerary will be a mix of traditional and new stages like Päijälä, Pihlajakoski, Jouhtikylä and it will include the 2.2km Harju test – run in the city centre in Jyväskylä – which was last included in a WRC route in 1998.
