lights, fog lights and hood with heat extractor cues. The side view reveals new,
aggressive 18- and 19-inch alloy wheel designs with deeper dimensional
sculpting. Finally, the rear taillights provide a visual spark via premium LED
illumination and new contours. Of course, the traditional rear-drive sport coupe
proportions remain, with a long wheelbase and short front and rear overhangs
producing a classic wedge-like profile. Genesis Coupe's bodyside character line
is an innovative "Z"-shaped design that integrates seamlessly with a unique,

features an electroluminescent gauge cluster for premium ambience and superior
readability. A new driver-side rear seat walk-in assist function has been added
for more convenient rear seat access from the driver's side. Convenient seatbelt
assist guides make it easier for front passengers to buckle up.
In addition, driver seat power lumbar support is now available and front
seatback pockets are standard on all Genesis Coupes. A center stack multi-gauge
cluster with instantaneous mpg, torque level (3.8 models) or turbocharger boost
pressure (2.0T models), and oil temperature is standard on all trims. A center
fascia tray with cover has been added for enhanced storage, and interior
surfaces now have a softer touch with lower sheen for a more up-market feel.
Sport front seats with deep side bolsters offer superb lateral support for
enthusiastic driving in all trim configurations.
Among other premium features are an available Infinity premium audio system and
two-stage front seat heaters. Genesis Coupe also offers the convenience of a
Proximity Key and push-button start.
