The new front-end styling gives the car a more aggressive look, to which it is most certainly entitled.

the Genesis looks light-years better—and bigger—in the flesh than in photographs

‘Aggressive’ is a word that automakers tend to overuse in describing the styling of exteriors, but it's an appropriate descriptor here for the new Genesis Coupe. It’s not only been given an injection of extra power and performance but also a much bolder face, better detailing, and more of a premium sports-car look inside.

From the outside, the Genesis Coupe’s front end is where you’ll notice the most change. With a blacked out grille and lower air dam, combined with all-new lower aero work, running lamps, and fog lamps, the Coupe has a wide look in front—even though it’s about the same width as before. Headlights have also been reshaped and are more finely detailed, and the hood has been reshaped and recontoured, with dual air intakes up by the cowl.

From the side, two rising ripples in the sheetmetal almost meet to create a Z-shaped component at the back of the side doors, while the window line itself, which drops just a slight bit at the rear window (and actually meets up with one of the ripples).

Taillamps are now packed with LEDs, and they have new contouring, but in back the Genesis Coupe has changed the least. And there's an all-new lineup of 18- and 19-inch wheel designs that are more (and more deeply) styled. The Genesis Coupe's color palette has been revamped, too.

Overall, the new exterior looks smartly at home next to sedan models like the Elantra or Sonata—or even the new Veloster coupe—yet there's no mistaking that this is the assertive, slung-back profile of a rear-wheel-drive coupe.

Inside, the 2013 Genesis Coupe follows a more cockpit-like layout, and gets a new hooded instrument cluster, a center stack design, and fresh piano-black finish, with a new upper dash pad.

Conclusion

The 2013 Genesis Coupe looks more ripped and refined, now standing out better than before against other sporty coupes.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
