Brembo brakes on all four corners provide more than adequate stopping power even from ice-cold. The front measure in at 13.4 inches, while the rear make due with an even 13. Both employ a monobloc four-piston set-up.
The Genesis Coupe incorporates an identical flexible rear-wheel drive architecture that was originally developed for the Genesis sports sedan. The coupe makes use of a MacPherson strut, dual-link front suspension and a five-link rear suspension setup.
At 3450 pounds, in standard form, the Genesis coupe cannot be called a light sports car. The standard-equipment list includes a six-speed manual transmission, power locks and windows, cruise control, stability control, a trip computer, and stereo auxiliary jacks.
