Some might purchase the Coupe based on its looks and performance alone. Well, there’s nothing wrong with that. But a sophisticated safety structure beginning with its advanced high-strength steel frame, strategically placed crumple zones, side-impact door beams and six airbags make its safety features as compelling as its looks.
Driver-selectable 3-Stage ESC
Traditionally, both Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control System (TCS) work together to help ensure that understeer and oversteer are kept in check in a variety of driving conditions, performing hundreds of calculations per second to reduce wheelspin or skidding. But our driver-selectable 3-stage ESC and TCS also offers you several choices when it comes to personalizing its characteristics and performance.
When you accelerate to the point where your wheels spin or find yourself driving on slippery surfaces, we’ve got you covered. The available Torsen® limited-slip differential divides the engine output evenly between the driven wheels for maximum grip and directional stability.
Even the best drivers can do little to avoid rear-end collisions. Genesis Coupe features active front head restraints that move instantaneously forward and up during a rear impact, helping to reduce the effects of potential whiplash. The restraint mechanism uses body weight alone to react in a collision.
Sooner or later, you’re going to have to get out of the Genesis Coupe. And when you do, distance sensors that are embedded into the rear bumper* make parking as simple as driving. They produce a warning sound for the driver if the car gets too close to any object they detect.
*Available on 3.8 Ultimate.
Passive safety is further enhanced by six standard airbags, including advanced driver and front passenger airbags. There are also side-impact and side-curtain airbags to make sure you’re protected.
