2013 Genesis Coupe has a more menacing look with a redesigned front fascia, grille, headlights, LED daytime running lights, fog lights and a hood with heat extractor cues.

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe was significantly redesigned for 2013 and given a more aggressive look, an improved interior and more power under the hood.

The refreshed Genesis Coupe now has a more menacing look with a redesigned front fascia, grille, headlights, LED daytime running lights, fog lights and a hood with heat extractor cues. It rides on new 18- and 19- inch alloy wheel designs with deeper sculpting.The rear-wheel-drive sport coupe proportions remain and it still has a long wheelbase with short front and rear overhangs, broad shoulders and a wide stance.Both Genesis Coupe engine options have been given significant technology upgrades

The Lambda DOHC V-6 engine has new direct-injection technology that adds 42 hp, up 14 percent to 348 hp. The Genesis Coupe with the V-6 now clocks 0-60 mph in the low five-second range and has an electronicallylimited top speed of 149 mph. The 3.8-liter engine uses Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (Dual CVVT) and a Variable Intake System (VIS) for more efficient operation at both low and high RPM.

At the same time, the turbocharged, intercooled 2.0-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder engine substitutes a new twin-scroll design for its turbocharger along with a new and larger intercooler. The twin-scroll design is more efficient at recovering exhaust energy and produces cooler cylinder temperatures.

The 2.0 liter turbo now generates 274 hp, a 30 percent increase, and has a cast-aluminum cylinder block and cylinder head. Both engines are mated to standard sixspeed manual transmissions, with an eightspeed automatic with paddle-shift SHIFTRONIC shifting available.

The 2013 Genesis Coupe interior has been enhanced with upscale features and design cues. The instrument panel crash pad has a stitched-seam look and the parking brake lever is leather-wrapped on leather-equipped models. The instrument cluster has an electroluminescent gauge cluster and a new rear seat walk-in assist function has been added for easier access to the rear seat from the driver’s side. Driver seat power lumbar support is available and front seatback pockets are standard. 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 and a center fascia tray with a cover has been added for more storage. Interior surfaces have a softer touch and sport front seats with deep side bolsters offer good lateral support. Other premium features include an available Infinity premium audio system and twostage front seat heaters.

Additionally, a new tan leather interior, a new red leather bolster/red cloth insert interior, and a new gray leather bolster/gray cloth insert interior have been added to the interior color selections offered.

The MSRP on the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe ranges from $24,250-$34,250.
