Hyundai adds that, “in order to raise the emotional quality in the Lambda 3.8 GDi model, a sound generator is applied to replace the rough engine sound with a classy and sporty sound.”
The South Korean automaker also update the Genesis Coupe base engine, it will come with a Theta 2.0 TCI unit, a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine that now delivers 275 PS (202 kW / 271 hp) and 373 Nm (275 lb-ft) of torque. Hyundai confirmed that both engines will be offered with the South Korean firm’s eight-speed automatic transmission that replaces the current 2.0-liter Turbo’s 5-speed auto and the 3.8-liter V6’s 6-speed auto. Both models will be offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox as well.
