2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe


Hyundai builds upon its Genesis line with the new Coupe version featured in Detroit this year. Featuring two models that will open it up to a larger audience; the first is a powerful direct fuel injection V6, packing a whopping 348 horses under its hood that gives it 295 pounds of torque at 5, 300 rpm. The toned-down model features an inter-cooled 2.0-Litre 4-cylinder that still gives it an impressive 274 horsepower and 275 pounds of torque. The beauty of this vehicle is the sport-tuned chassis to match the contained powertrains. This is accomplished by mounting the dual-link (front) suspension onto a solid subframe to increase strength and decrease weight; and adding front and back stabilizers which in turn benefits the cars maximum handling. Watch for price and availability later this year.
