Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2013
On the heels of announcing the pricing for the ‘new’ Azera model, Hyundai has announced that the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will start at $24,250 U.S, about $2,000 more than last year’s model. If you purchase the extra options that are available, plus pay the $875 destination fee, your price will go up to $34,250 U.S.
Consumers will have a choice between two engine styles: the 4-cylinder 2.0 liter turbocharged, with 274 total horsepower or the V6 3.8 liter, with 348 total horsepower. The 2.0 engine offers gas mileage of 20 miles per gallon city-driven and 31 miles per gallon highway-driven. The larger engine offers a gas mileage of 18 miles per gallon city-driven and 28 miles per gallon highway-driven. Hyundai recommends premium-grade gasoline for better performance. Both come standard with a six-speed manual transmission, with the option of an automatic eight-speed with paddle-shifters.
So ... What's New?
The revised Genesis is offered in seven new colors for the exterior, and some new interior hues as well. Other upgrades include a quicker steering rack that’s been recalibrated, revised damper settings and a front strut adjustment. Also as a standard feature is the BlueLink telematics system, which is Hyundai’s version of Chevrolet’s OnStar system and Ford’s Synch system.
The exterior has been completely redesigned and now has a more aggressive look. It’s clear that Hyundai is playing to win in the revival of the sports coupe market. That’s good news for performance car enthusiasts who are looking for quality, speed and power at an affordable price that won’t break the bank.
