2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Overview
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe gets an update for 2013, with a front-end styling makeover and more powerful engine. This stylish two-door coupe provides seating for four and features rear-wheel drive.
The base model Genesis Coupe is powered by a 274-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The premium model ups the ante with a powerful 348-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 and uses the same six-speed manual. Both models can be upgraded to an eight-speed electronic automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
The four-cylinder Genesis Coupe is rated at 20-21 mpg in the city and 30-31 mpg on the highway, with the manual transmission delivering a better performance around town, and the automatic transmission hitting the higher number on the highway. The V-6 follows a similar pattern, with 18 mpg in the city and 27-28 mpg on the highway.
Cloth seating and manual air conditioning come standard in the Genesis Coupe, and leather interior, heated seats, and automatic temperature control are available upgrades. The audio system features iPod/USB and auxiliary inputs standard. A navigation system with touch screen and three-month NavTraffic subscription is available. Styling options include a leather-wrapped steering wheel/shift knob and sporty aluminum foot pedals. Bluetooth hands-free calling is included with all models, as are steering-wheel-mounted audio controls. Automatic cruise control and Hyundai’s Blue Link technology for smart phone integration are available.
The Genesis Coupe's styling makeover includes an aggressive front end with dramatic halogen headlights and an oversized grille. Eighteen-inch alloy wheels are standard, with available nineteen-inch alloy wheels and high performance tires. Fog lamps are included with the premium model, as is a power tilt-and-slide sunroof. LED daytime running lights are an option, and LED taillights are standard in all models. The premium Track model includes a bodycolor rear spoiler, aero wiper blades, and high-intensity discharge xenon headlights.
The Genesis Coupe is packed with standard safety features, including dual advanced front airbags, front side-impact airbags, and side-curtain airbags. On-road safety features include electronic stability and traction control, four-wheel antilock braking with brake assist, and a Brembo braking system is available on some models. Active front head restraints, an energy-absorbing steering column, and front and rear crumple zones provide additional peace of mind to in the event of a collision.
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe carries a higher base price than the 2012 model, but its redesign packs more standard features with improved styling and a more powerful engine making it an excellent value for the money. For drivers looking for a well-equipped sports car, the 2013 Genesis Coupe is definitely worth a look.
