The 2013 Hyundai Genesis is finally a true sports car.

The 2013 Hyundai Genesis has been released and its insides and outsides have been completely revamped.

Under the hood the Genesis has a stunning 2.0-liter four-cylinder all-aluminum engine and a twin-scroll turbocharger. The intercooler has been ramped up and is 53-percent-larger than past models, which improves the horsepower by 64, bringing it to a total of 274 hp. There is also the addition of dual continuously variable valve timing that helps increase the torque 52 lb-ft with a total of 275 lb-ft of torque. The other engine available is the 3.8 liter direct-inject V-6 that comes complete with 348 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Top speed for the 2.0T engine comes in at 146 mph and 149 mph for the 3.8. The power to weight ratio is astounding for the Genesis.

For transmission options Hyundai allows you a little more customization options than just manual or automatic. The 2.0T and 3.8 R-spec engines come standard with the six-speed manual. The 3.8 Grand Touring and 2.0T Premium are available only with the new eight-speed automatic transmission, and finally the 2.0T and the 3.8 Track models have the option of either transmission.

Inside the make-over continues with tons of updated features and premium materials. The sport style seats come standard in the front of all Genesis coupes. The cabin is roomy for most people with plenty of leg, hip, and shoulder space. Bluetooth comes standard on all Genesis models and Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics system is available on the 3.8 Grand Touring/Track and 2.0T Premium trim levels. The seven-inch touch screen is available with a navinfotainment system that is usable while driving. There is also an optional 360-watt Infinity sound system along with satellite radio and traffic.

On the outside the front bumper of the new Genesis has been completely redone and is different than anything else seen on a Hyundai. The aggressive hood lines and flawless paint job give the car a sleek look. To round out the updates to the exterior there are completely new headlight designs and LED taillights. Hyundai Genesis Phoenix drivers will love the luxury feel of these new features.

Overall the 2013 Hyundai Genesis has upgraded itself to a true sports car. The power added to the engine and the new transmission options allow the car to now be competitive with brands like BMW and Infiniti. The interior upgrades and additional space make any occupant feel like their driving a sports car. Head down to your local Phoenix Hyundai dealer for more information on the new Genesis coupe.
