2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe | Review-Price-Exterior-Interior – According to Hyundai America CEO John Krafcik, 2011 marked the highest calendar year sales ever for the Genesis coupe. The self confessed factoid freak calmly references this fact from the passenger seat of a 2013 Genesis coupe as we skim across the Nevada Desert floor at speeds well over the century mark. Krafcik is busy peppering me with questions about the car and other cars, and Apple, Sony, BlackBerry, and the current state of EPA regulations, among other topical concerns and snapping photos when we roll over a cattle grate without drama; doing so in the pre-refresh Genesis coupe would have sent reverberations throughout the entire car. He smiles approvingly, then returns his attention to his BlackBerry and begins hammering out another series of messages. Note to Genesis coupe suspension engineers: Now may be the time to ask for a raise.

We were intrigued when the Hyundai Genesis Coupe Hyundai’s first foray into the rear drive sports coupe market hit the streets. Could the plucky Korean upstart really take on the established ponycar heavyweights? Turns out, the answer was yes. Back in 2010, we pitted the Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track against V-6 powered versions of the Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger. The Genesis Coupe came in first thanks to “driver focused sensations from behind the wheel” that made it “the only one that felt like a genuine sports car.” Now, with more power and a host of other upgrades, the new 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe on display at the 2012 Detroit auto show is poised to once again take on the big boys in the segment.

The current Hyundai Genesis Coupe went on sale in United States dealerships back on February 26, 2009. It was a pretty cool sports car powered by a 2.0-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder that delivered 212 HP and 217 lb.-ft. of torque, but in 2011, Hyundai tried making it even better by adding a new version: the Coupe 3.8 R-Spec. This new coupe is powered by a 3.8 liter V6 engine that delivers 306 HP, which is obviously better than the previous model, but apparently, that addition simply wasn’t enough for Hyundai. Now, they’ve brought the facelift version of the Genesis Coupe to the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, in its American version.

The new 2013 Genesis Coupe sports more aggressive coupe styling, complemented by an improved interior and design. It will be available with 4 cylinder and V6 engines, both of which benefit from significant technology enhancements, a 3.8-liter V6 engine with sophisticated direct-injection technology, and a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine that has been upgraded to a more precise twin-scroll turbocharger and larger intercooler.
