Today we’re getting another peek at what we believe is the refreshed 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe thanks to an image posted on Hyundai-Blog. Last month we brought you spy shots of the new Genesis Coupe that gave us a good albeit grainy idea of what the updated sports coupe might look like.
The most obvious detail of the pictured car is an augmented nose that features hood scoops, Hyundai’s hexagonal grille, and some fluidic sculpture design cues we’ve seen on cars like the Veloster and Elantra.
The new Genesis Coupe’s front end looks similar to Hyundai’s new Veloster, logical as the two share the title of Hyundai’s sports coupe offerings. While aesthetically similar, the Genesis Coupe is rear-wheel drive and sacrifices the high mpg marks of the Veloster for more oomph under the hood. The Genesis Coupe currently offers a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine good for 210 hp, and a meaty 3.8-liter V-6 that delivers 306 hp, on par with the Ford Mustang V-6.
Potential updates for the 2013 Genesis Coupe could include streaming Pandora radio capability and Hyundai’s Blue Link Telematics package. Blue Link offers subscription-based services ranging from roadside assistance and vehicle collision notification to a stolen vehicle recovery system.
