For those of you patiently waiting on the 2013 Genesis Coupe and the return of the Azera to Hyundai’s lineup, your wait is over. Hyundai has announced pricing for both vehicles: The 2012 Hyundai Azera starts at $32,875, including destination; the 2013 Genesis Coupe starts at $25,125 also including destination.
Hyundai’s larger sedan will make its return to the Korean automaker’s lineup in April of this year with a 3.3-liter V-6 engine. The Azera’s engine sends 293 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. While the Azera’s base price is more than $6,000 higher than the model it replaces, it also comes with a lot more standard equipment. That list includes fog lights, daytime running lights, LED taillights, and chrome trim; inside the Azera contains features like a steering wheel and shift knob outfitted in leather, push-button keyless entry, a premium sound and navigation system, and Bluetooth.
As if the $32,875 price tag for the base Azera wasn’t tough enough to wrap your head around, you can add the Technology Package for another $4000. This package includes ventilated front seats, 19-inch alloy wheels, HID xenon headlights, a rear sunshade, a panoramic sunroof, and an even better sound system.
As for the 2013 Genesis coupe, it has been on the receiving end of a multitude of additions and additions by subtraction. The rear-wheel drive coupe receives a new front-end and larger grille, redesigned headlights, and LED taillights like Azera. The interior has also been updated as well, but what’s under the hood should really get your attention. A 3.8-liter V-6 returns to the coupe but with advanced fuel injection, bumping power to 348 hp. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder also benefits from upgrades, and is now rated at 274 horsepower. Both engines can be mated to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
If you’re looking for a Genesis coupe that is completely decked out expect to pay around $35,125 for the 3.8 Track model. A fully-loaded Azera (with the Technology Package) will dry out your bank account to the tune of around $36,875 before tax, title, and license fees.
