2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/genesis-coupe/2013/?id=32972 The 2013
Hyundai Genesis Coupe is back with a newly redesigned look and upgraded
engine choices. The Genesis Coupe has always been lumped into the muscle
car category with its front engine, rear-wheel drive platform. But the
muscle cars have always held a distinct power advantage until now.
The base engine for the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder. Power is up 30%
from 210 horsepower up to 274 horsepower. An upgraded
dual-scroll turbo, larger Intercooler, and Dual Continuously
Variable Valve Timing help achieve these better power figures. Fuel economy
for the 2.0 liter engine is 21 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway.
The other engine choice is a direct-injected 3.8 liter V-6 which produces
Fuel economy for this engine is expected to be 18 MPG in the city and 28
MPG in the highway. There are two transmission choices available in the
2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe: an 8-Speed automatic or a 6-speed manual.
On the outside the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe retains the same overall
shape but the styling has been changed to reflect the rest of the Hyundai
line-up. Up front the Genesis receives a more aggressive look thanks to an
upgraded hood with two scoops, new front fascia, and larger bumper opening.
Out back the Exhaust gasses exit out
dual asymmetrical chrome pipes. The lights have been upgraded to include
LED daytime running lamps which can be found on high end luxury cars. The
R-Spec and Track editions will receive huge 19-inch alloy wheels.
On the inside the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe features an available 360-watt
Infinity sound system. There are steering wheel controls for the audio
system and the usual iPod, USB, and auxiliary ports. A navigation system
can be purchased as an option that includes a 7-inch touch screen monitor.
The rear seats have been designed with comfort in mind. Instead of stuffing
3 seats in the rear; Hyundai has decided to go with only two. This means
there is a ton of room for the rear occupants.
When the Hyundai Genesis Coupe arrived on the scene a few years ago it was
certainly a respectable car. In fact it was this car and the sedan version
that really gave Hyundai a Boost in
the automotive world. Now with the 2013 model there is more power! The base
model 2.0 liter Hyundai Genesis Coupe starts at $24,250 and the top of the
line 3.8 liter with the track package will retail for about $33,000.

The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.

2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R Spec Test Drive & Sport Compact Car Review
72 The Korean automaker Hyundai has come a long way with the 2013 Hyundai
Genesis Coupe 3.8 R Spec. The fuel efficient automaker used to be know for
getting great gas mileage, but the refreshed Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R
Spec is an enthusiasts dream come true. Hyundai kick started the 21st
century sport compact craze with the original Genesis Coupe, and while it
was a breath of fresh air from the 100,000 mile warranty car builder, at
the time the rear wheel drive sport compact felt a bit heavy. However the
refreshed 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe not only looks better, but thanks to
gasoline direct injection they make a whole lot more power as well.
Starting at $28,750 the 3.8 R Spec comes exclusively with a six speed
manual that is connected to the torquey 3.8 Liter Lambda V6 and rides on a
set of staggered 19 inch wheels wrapped in stick y Bridgestone Potenza
tires and house a set of big red Brembo brake calipers.
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R Spec is motivated by a large 3.8 Liter
GDI V6 that produces 348 HP at 6,400 RPM and 295 lb-ft of torque at 5,300
RPM. Despite the added power the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R Spec still
gets great gas mileage, rated at 18 MPG in the city and as much as 27 MPG
on the highway. The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R Spec is quick too,
accelerating from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.9 seconds and keeps on going though the
quarter mile in 14.3 seconds at 98 MPH.
From the ground up the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R Spec was built to
perform. The 3.8 R Spec handles great, even with the extra weight up front
from the Lambda V6. The 225 wide rubber up front helps point the R Spec
around turns while the Torsen limited slip differential makes sure that
power is distributed evenly across the 245 series tires out back. The
Brembo brake calipers also help to bring things to a halt. On the inside
the sport bucket seats hold occupants in place nicely and add a nice touch
to the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R Spec's enthusiast attitude.
