Updated September 23, 2018
South Korean cars weren’t as popular as their Japanese counterparts in the late 90s and the same could be said about the last decade as well. Still, things are changing dramatically and automobile brands like Kia and especially Hyundai are gaining more and more of the market share. That kind of situation was especially obvious in the 2011 when the new Hyundai Genesis was revealed. It broke all record sales and became the most sold Genesis model to date. It is no wonder that that we are witnessing the revelation of the new, improved and slightly redesigned 2013 Hyundai Genesis. What changes has Hyundai made to their most popular coupe? What kind of a new engine was placed under the hood? What about the price? For answers to all those questions and more, be sure to read our complete and detailed review.
2013 Hyundai Genesis: Interior and exterior
The previous models of this line looked great, but the company has decided to make some improvements regardless of that fact. Making improvements and refreshing the looks to stay in the touch with the newest competition is always important, so the new 2013 Hyundai Genesis has a slightly updated interior. The front seats are now available in a sport edition regardless of the version of this model you buy. The same applies to the Bluetooth connection. If you decide to get the navigation system, your dashboard will come with a 7-inch touch screen and a satellite radio (and the Infinity 360-watt sound system will make sure you enjoy any kind of music you decide to listen) and traffic as well. Everyone who has extra money can go for the Blue Link telematics system of Hyundai that is available for the top-tier levels such as the 2.0T Premium and 3.8 Grand Touring/Track.
Performance and engine offering of the 2013 Hyundai Genesis
While the looks were just slightly redesigned, there has been a bunch of new improvements when it comes to the performance and engine offering in the new 2013 Hyundai Genesis line. All elements of undercarriage were changed or re-calibrated, so driving the new 2013 Genesis is a much easier and more thrilling experience when compared to the models manufactured throughout the previous years. The aluminum 2.0 four-liter engine now comes with a twin-scroll turbocharger and is able to produce up to 274 horse power. The turbo gap is almost non-existent, so driving it is a great joy. There is also a direct-injected V6 with a 332 horse power for the more advanced users, as well as a 412 horse power 5.0-liter V8 engine for the real enthusiasts.
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Verdict
Although the 2013 Hyundai Genesis features enough changes to convince those of you who were interested in the previous models, we still aren’t sure that it is going to steal the more traditional coupe customers that have been driving Ford’s and Dodge’s offering for a decade and more. Still, if there is an affordable coupe on the market, then 2013 Genesis is certainly the one. With a starting price around $35,000, it is a great deal for everyone who likes a bit of thrilling rides from time to time.
