We already know that the 2013 Hyundai Coupe will make it's debut in 2012 at the Detroit Auto Show in January, but now we know more about what is behind the new project.
The four and six-cylinder engines under the hood of the updated Hyundai Genesis Coupe will prove to be significant improvements in design. The 3.8-litre Lambda V6 will now use direct injection technology like the updated 2012 Genesis sedan.
In the new Hyundai Genesis Coupe, Instead of matching the four-door with 333 horsepower and 291 Nm of torque, this Hyundai pushes 345 hp and 295 Nm of torque. The Korean Coupe will put down more power than many of its American and Japanese six-cylinder rivals, notably the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro and Nissan 370Z.
There is also good news for the new turbo system. The straight four cylinder 2.0-litre engine Hyundai will get a new and improved twin-scroll turbocharger and intercooler system, which will now provide 271 horsepower and 275 Nm of torque.
Both four and six-cylinder engines feature eight-speed automatic transmission. For those who prefer to manually change gears, Hyundai will offer a version with a manual six-speed gearbox. Experts advise that an eight-speed automatic enclosure is best for this car.
