The 2.0-liter turbo presently delivers 274hp and 275 lb.-ft. of torque on premium fuel.

When viewed on the front, the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe now sports a more imposing front end as indicated by its redesigned front fascia and hood with heat extractor cues as well as by a redesigned grille flanked by redesigned headlights, LED daytime running lights and fog lights. This aggressiveness continues on towards the rear with new contours and premium LED lights and on the sides with imposing 18- and 19-inch alloy wheel designs.
The sides also feature a "Z"-shaped character line integrated seamlessly with a distinct drop-beltline rear window graphic. The refreshed Hyundai Genesis Coupe still features traditional rear-drive sport coupe proportions as well as short front and rear overhangs riding on a long wheelbase. The exterior profile of the new Genesis Coupe is defined by its arching roofline and tapering greenhouse, both elegantly highlighting its wide shoulders and stance.
Also enhancing the aggressiveness of the new Genesis Coupe’s front end are the larger openings in the front fascia, which also provides more cooling air for the engine. This aggressiveness is mirrored in the rear end with dual asymmetrical exhaust tips integrated with the blackout rear diffuser treatment.
Of course, the new engines of the new Genesis Coupe are perfectly matched by recalibrated springs, dampers and bushings to ensure that the car offers better ride comfort and a more precise body motion control.
The new Hyundai Genesis Coupe features a MacPherson strut dual-link suspension on the front mounted to the body using a solid lighter and stronger subframe, as well as a five-link suspension setup on the rear. In addition, the new Genesis Coupe features 23-mm front and 19-mm rear stabilizer bars to reduce body rolls.
