Just a handful of years ago, no one would have thought of Hyundai when shopping for a sporty coupe, but the Genesis Coupe has changed that. Offering a range of performance and equipment options from $24,250 to $34,250 (plus $875 destination fee), the Genesis Coupe
's price rises about $2,000 for the 2013 model year.
Two core variants of the 2013 Genesis Coupe are available: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0T model, and a 3.8-liter normally-aspirated V-6 3.8 model. The 2.0T generates 274 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, while the V-6 is rated at 348 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque--both figures are on premium fuel. Power drops slightly with regular gas.
For the 2.0T, there are three trims available, including base models with either six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmissions, the R-Spec, and the Premium. The R-Spec is only available with the manual, while the Premium only comes with the automatic. Pricing for the 2.0T ranges as high as $28,750 for the Premium model.
With the 3.8-liter V-6, three trims are offered as well: the R-Spec, the Grand Touring, and the Track. Like the 2.0T, the R-Spec model is only sold with a manual transmission, while the Grand Touring is automatic-only. The Track can be had with either transmission, and tops the Genesis Coupe price range at $33,000 (manual) or $34,250 (automatic).
New features and equipment for the 2013 model include the new eight-speed automatic, increased power, re-tuned suspension, refreshed exterior design, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, a 7-inch navigation system, and a slightly redesigned interior.
