<i>To achieve safer and more precise performance, many new technologies were developed and applied to the all-new Hyundai Coupe. The following are a few examples of the advanced technology applied to the all-new Hyundai Coupe.</i>

<b>6-CWS (6-Counterweight System)</b>
One new technology is concealed in the manufacturing technique of the 2.7L Delta engine's crankshaft. Until now, the crankshaft was produced utilizing the 'Twist Method', a patent held by Toyota/Nissan. But this method has problems: a drop off in quality due to complicated production processes and a rise in cost and noise. As a solution to these problems, Hyundai has developed the world's first 6-counterweight system. This technology is known as the 'Non-Twist' method. Using new materials, it is quite light. Also, by eliminating the existing twist production process, the inferiority rate has decreased remarkable. As a result, both quality improvements and cost reductions are achieved. Furthermore, a quiet and smooth engine will give better performance and be more fun to drive. Currently Hyundai is obtaining a patent for this new method in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Canada and Japan. It is expected to eventually replace Toyota/Nissan's 'Twist Method'.

<b>CAN (Control Area Network Bus System)</b>
In the 21st century, success or failure depends on the timely and precise use of information. The automobile is not an exception to this. In the case of the RD Coupe, when information is exchanged among each controlling ECU, as many coupling wires for each necessary source is need. But the CAN system optimally controls each controlling system by sharing and exchanging all the necessary information through only two CAN bus lines. As many as 40 ECUs can communicate with the CAN bus at the same time.

<b>TWB (Tailor Welded Blank System)</b>
At present, only European carmakers (Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Volkswagen) and Japanese carmakers (Nissan and Toyota) are using TWB in the design and manufacturing of their automobiles. Use of TWB in Hyundai has been applied for structural members, door, tailgate, and center pillar insides and body side frames. Use of TWB with properly designed parts can provide numerous benefits, including part integration, material yield improvement, weight reduction, stiffness, material optimization and noise and vibration reduction.
