2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe: Dyno Tested
We've already tested the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, but enthusiasts keen on exploring every facet of its performance credentials now have another data point to consider--our chassis dyno result.
Hyundai pegs its brand-spankin' new Genesis Coupe's 3.8-liter V6 at 306-hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. To detemine just how truthful they've been in this rating, we strapped a Genesis to the Dynojet rollers at MD Automotive's facility in Westminster, CA, and let 'er rip.
And forgive the little gap in the data at 5300 rpm--our speed pick-up momentarily lost its tach signal.
Overall, this result by the Genesis coupe indicates that the V6 version is generating the full output claimed by Hyundai. Of note in particular is the character of the torque curve--flat's the word.
Remember, don't go comparing results across dyno manufacturers because the planet will tilt off-axis and we'll all freeze to death. Feel free to pontificate how the Genesis compares to the - BMW 335i and Infiniti G37 we measured a while back, though--we used the same dyno for all three.
