In keeping with impressive performance upgrades, the 2013 Genesis Coupe
sports more aggressive coupe styling, complemented by improved interior
materials and design. The 3.8-liter V6 engine received sophisticated
direct-injection technology while the automatic transmission now has 8-speeds,
with paddle-shift SHIFTRONIC manual-shifting capability. Hyundai's proprietary
telematics platform, Blue Link, is now available, providing Genesis Coupe owners
with a variety of infotainment services to meet their individual connectivity
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- and 19-inch alloy wheel designs with deeper dimensional sculpting. Finally, the rear taillights provide a visual spark via premium LED illumination and new contours. Of course, 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 that integrates seamlessly with a unique, drop-beltline rear window graphic.
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.
Upscale Interior Refinement
The 2013 Genesis Coupe interior has been enhanced with distinctive, upscale features and design cues. The instrument panel crash pad features a stitched-seam appearance for a distinctly upscale look, and the parking brake lever is leather-wrapped on leather-equipped models. 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 center stack multi-gauge cluster with instantaneous mpg, torque level, 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 up-market feel. Sport front seats with deep side bolsters offer superb lateral support for enthusiastic driving in all trim configurations.
Among other premium features are an available Infinity premium audio system and two-stage front seat heaters. Genesis Coupe also offers the convenience of a Proximity Key and push-button start.
