The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe exposes its new aggressiveness without too much worries at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. At first glance you don’t seem to figure out why, but when you look under the hood you can definitely see the difference.
Genesis offers us two possibilities: a 3.8 liter V6, that generates up to 348 horsepower and 296 pound-feet of torque and the 2.0T model which keeps the race tight with a high number of 274 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.
Both these models preserve their six-speed manuals, but add to the chart a Hyundai-developed eight-speed with paddle-shifters that act as the automatic option. Unfortunately, this does not mean that the fuel consumption goes lower than a digit.
As I was saying at the beginning, aggressive doesn’t go without a fabulous look and some additional features. So the producers thought: why not throw in 7 new colors and some hues? And they did.
That and a steering rack, front strut adjustment and a Hyundai BlueLink telematics system.
A lot of great news. Keep up the good work Hyundai!
