The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has finally made its U.S. debut following an initial reveal in South Korea
back in November
and in several other markets since.
Hyundai chose this week’s 2012 Detroit Auto Show for the car’s debut, and here we have the live photos direct from the auto show floor.
The 2013 Genesis Coupe comes with fresh new styling, more powerful engines under the hood, and a revamped interior.
Starting with the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, peak output has been lifted to 274 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. This represents a jump of 64 horsepower and 52 pound-feet of torque over the outgoing model, courtesy of a new twin-scroll turbocharger and larger intercooler.
The 3.8-liter V-6 meanwhile gains 42 horsepower and 29 pound-feet of torque over the pre-facelifted Genesis Coupe, with its final figures pegged at 348 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Hyundai says most of the gains can be attributed to the addition of direct injection technology.
Also new is an eight-speed automatic replacing the outgoing model’s six-speed. And if you prefer to shift gears yourself, a six-speed manual is still standard on both engine options.
