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.
