Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsSimilarly soft engine mounts to Genesis Coupe V6 delivers feeling of drivetrain lash. Shift it hard and it feels like there's some throttle control reduction, and revs hang up, perhaps because of combination of emissions control and heavy flywheel. Otherwise, power delivery is fairly linear once the mellow boost ramps up. Certainly not overwhelming power.
Braking ratingGood
Braking commentsToo much idle stroke in pedal action for performance car, but good bite once into the meat of the pedal. Good thermal capacity, as fade is minimal.
Handling ratingVery Good
Handling comments Slalom: Less weight is more noticeable through the slalom than around the skid pad. 2.0T slips through cones with less effort than 3.8 V6. Lighter on its feet, it's the choice for those who want to autocross, but will need more oomph to do well. Skid pad: 2.0T burdens its front tires less than the 3.8 V6, but doesn't have the power to overcome tire grip as easily. Balance is good.
