Hyundai has thoroughly revamped its Genesis coupe for 2013. Changes have been made inside and out, with a more aggressive front end treatment and a revised and more luxurious passenger cabin. The biggest changes however, are under the hood. On premium fuel, the 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder now delivers an impressive 274 hp and 275 ft-lb of torque (up from 210 hp and 223 lb-feet). Similarly, the 3.8L V6 gets a big power bump and now churns out 348 hp and 295 ft-lb (up from 306 hp and 266 lb-feet). To harness that extra power, Hyundai has done away with the previous 5- and 6-speed automatics and replaced them with a new 8-speed automatic. The 6-speed manual carries over with a few changes. Overall, six models are offered. Hyundai claims 20 mpg city and 31 mpg highway from the turbocharged 4-cylinder, while the V6 returns 18 mpg city and 28 mpg highway--up 1 mpg each from last year's model.
Fresh styling inside and out; improved, more powerful engines lineup; new 8-speed automatic transmission; excellent road-holding; superior warranty
There was already a lot to like about the Hyundai. Genesis sport coupe. Now that the Korean automaker has refined its two powerplants with added power and efficiency, and added a slick 8-speed automatic to the mix, there's even more to recommend the Genesis. With rear-wheel drive, a firm and able suspension, and a price tag that's more than competitive with its Japanese and even European counterparts, the 2013 Hyundai Genesis is worth a good long look.
