When Hyundai first presented the Genesis Coupe, it featured solid performance, proper rear-drive layout, and plenty of style. From then on, the Genesis Coupe is recognized as the old-fashioned model. Even though the bodywork is still eye-catching, it's now lacking the wow factor it used to have. According to Hyundai Motor America CEO John Krafcik, 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will be given a more dramatic changeover. Its exterior will be restyled even more than the Sedan's, he stated at a launch event for the Genesis Sedan in Detroit. This restyling is a part of Hyundais mission to remain on top of automotive design. As per Krafcik, he wants to keep on delivering progressive attractive designs which will be inspiring, not a step back.
While the Genesis Sedan received a new 8-speed automatic transmission and a more powerful V6 engine, the Coupe is expected to get the same engine, producing 333-hp. It is actually a good bump in power over the outgoing V-6 engine, that made 306-hp. Moreover, the Genesis Coupe will now top its six-cylinder pony-car rivals, such as Chevy Camaro offering 312-hp, Ford Mustang, and Dodge Challenger both carrying 305-hp sixes under their hoods.
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is getting the brands new Bluelink telematics system as well.
