In keeping with impressive performance upgrades, the Genesis Coupe now sports more aggressive coupe styling, complemented by improved interior materials and design.
The refreshed Genesis Coupe strikes a more menacing demeanor, with an aggressively redesigned front fascia, grille, headlights, LED daytime running lights, fog lights and hood with heat extractor cues. The side view reveals new, aggressive 18 inch alloy wheel designs with deeper dimensional sculpting.
Managing Director of Hyundai Middle East, Mr Tom Lee, said, “The fluidic sculpture design lines are evident in the new Genesis Coupe as they are integrated into a new front bumper and hood, giving a far sportier look than its previous form. This new 2013 model is in many showrooms now across the Middle East and is an excellent example of Hyundai’s luxury model offering. The previous model it replaces won accolades all over the world so we have high hopes for the new version here in the Middle East.”
The traditional rear-drive sport coupe proportions remain, with a long wheelbase and short front and rear overhangs producing a classic wedge-like profile. Genesis Coupe’s bodyside character line is an innovative “Z”-shaped design. Enlarged openings in the front fascia allow for better engine breathing along with a more aggressive look. Dual asymmetrical exhaust tips integrated with the blackout rear diffuser treatment complete the performance message from the rear.
The Genesis Coupe is available with two engine options. The 3.8-litre Lambda DOHC V6 engine and the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine are both available with a 6-speed manual transmission or 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle-shift Shiftronic manual-shifting capability. Both 4-cylinder and V6 engines benefit from significant technology enhancements, with the 3.8-litre V6 engine receiving sophisticated direct-injection technology and the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine upgrading to a more precise twin-scroll turbocharger and larger intercooler.
The 2013 Genesis Coupe interior has been enhanced with distinctive, upscale features and design cues. The instrument panel features a stitched-seam appearance for a distinctly upscale look. The instrument cluster now features an electroluminescent gauge cluster for premium ambience and superior readability. A new driver-side rear seat walk-in assist function has been added for more convenient rear seat access from the driver’s side. Convenient seatbelt assist guides make it easier for front passengers to buckle up.
In addition, driver seat power lumbar support is now available and front seatback pockets are standard on all Genesis Coupes. A centre stack multi-gauge cluster with instantaneous mpg, torque level (3.8 models) or turbocharger boost pressure (2.0T models), and oil temperature is standard on all trims. A center fascia tray with cover has been added for enhanced storage, and interior surfaces now have a softer touch with lower sheen for a more luxurious feel. Sport front seats with deep side bolsters offer superb lateral support for enthusiastic driving in all trim configurations.
In keeping with Hyundai’s focus on offering segment-leading standard safety technologies across its lineup, the 2013 Genesis Coupe includes a wide range of both active and passive safety features. Standard safety technology includes driver and front passenger advanced frontal airbags, along with front seat-mounted side airbags, side air curtains and active front head restraints.
The Genesis Coupe has a strong unibody construction, along with front and rear crumple zones, bodyside reinforcements and five-mph energy-absorbing bumpers. The hood also includes buckling creases and safety stops.
With Genesis Coupe’s more aggressive exterior design cues, fresh exterior color offerings are now available, with seven new colors added to the palette. In keeping with Genesis Coupe color names selected at launch, all new color names are derived from world-famous racing circuits and their most challenging track segments. These new colours include: Parabolica Blue, Catalunya Copper, Monaco White, Becketts Black, Circuit Silver, Gran Premio Gray, and Shoreline Drive Blue.
To further complement Genesis Coupe’s freshened interior design and premium materials, 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.
