One of Hyundai’s most significant and popular models is the Genesis coupe. This is because the Hyundai Genesis coupe has a lot of exciting features to offer. However, it seems like Hyundai was not yet happy with the external appearance of the Genesis as well as its features and this has encouraged the company to upgrade the model. As a result, the 2013 Hyundai Genesis was created with the following improvements.
1. Exterior and interior design
One of the most significant improvements that Hyundai has implemented on the 2013 Hyundai Genesis coupe is obviously seen on the car’s external and internal appearance. Compared to its predecessor, the 2013 Hyundai Genesis looks more upscale. In fact, its external appearance was quite similar to that of the Hyundai Veloster.
In addition to this, the 2013 Hyundai Genesis’ internal features have also improved. Hyundai has used more upscale materials on the vehicle’s cabin and this has made the Genesis look more elegant and pleasing to the eyes. Aside from that, the new version of the Genesis is also equipped with a few standard equipments that were previously offered as optional features. The BlueLink which is the company’s telematics system was also offered on this version of the Genesis and this has made the vehicle at par with its closest competitors.
2. Engine and transmission
For the 2013 Hyundai Genesis coupe, Hyundai has used two types of engines and this setup allows the buyers to choose which of the two are suited to their driving needs. The first engine used on the 2013 Hyundai Genesis is the 3.8-liter Lambda GDi V-6 engine. This engine produces a maximum power output of 348 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. This new engine pumps an additional 42 horsepower compared to the outgoing 3.8-liter direct injected V-6. This engine is mated to a new 8-speed automatic transmission.
The second engine used on the 2013 Hyundai Genesis coupe is the 2.0-liter TCi 4-cylinder engine that produces 274 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine replaced the 2.0-liter direct injected 4-cylinder engine that produces 210 horsepower and 223 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine is also mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission developed by Hyundai for its own vehicles.
