2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe features a mild styling refresh for the front end and taillights, but the big news is under the hood. The Genesis Coupe 2.0T’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine now boasts 274 horsepower — a 30 percent increase — while the 3.8 model’s V6 jumps from 306 hp to 348 hp. A new eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters also debuts, bringing with it crisper acceleration and better fuel economy than last year’s six-speed auto.
Along with powertrain changes, the Genesis Coupe also gets revised suspension tuning to better suit the extra power (while still maintaining ride comfort) and quicker-ratio steering for improved response to driver input. Inside the cabin, Hyundai has added a telescoping steering wheel and updated the center stack and gauges with a better-looking design. Hyundai’s BlueLink telematics system is also new, bringing with it services that include voice text messaging, turn-by-turn navigation and monthly vehicle reporting.
