Track Performance

I had a chance to drive a four-cylinder and V-6 coupe on a track, and both coupes felt balanced through the corners, but their standard stability systems were frequently activated. I'm no pro driver, so I tend to leave the stability systems on in all the cars I take on racetracks, but of the performance cars I recently drove on a track only the Genesis coupe's system consistently came on during aggressive cornering.

The Genesis coupe with its turbo four-cylinder engine doesn't have enough power to impress on a fast racetrack, but neither do most production cars. In comparison, the V-6's higher output is better suited to the track, and it doesn't sacrifice the coupe's agility.
