Genesis Coupe's rear-wheel drive layout is a core differentiator of true sports cars and clearly separates it from sporty front-wheel drive "pretenders."

•  Rear-wheel drive effectively    divides acceleration and    cornering forces
   between front and rear axles
   for maximum performance
   — FWD front tires must
       compromise between
       acceleration and cornering force
   — RWD effectively uses all (4) tire contact patches to maximum potential
•  Vehicle mass shifts rearward under hard acceleration, providing additional traction for RWD     vehicles to accelerate without wheelspin
   — FWD cars lose traction under hard acceleration, creating wheelspin and unpleasant
•  RWD provides better dynamic balance toward the ideal 50/50 front-to-rear weight
   — Engine, transmission, driveshaft and rear differential mass move rearward within the
       wheelbase, for more agile cornering response

Product Overview

Genesis Coupe packaging reveals short overhangs, an extended wheelbase, and short rear deck for a classic sport coupe design profile

• Competitive FWD sporty coupes cannot provide this classic profile
• FF coupe engines are mounted forward of the front axle
   — Enlarges front overhang
