Hyundai Genesis Coupe V6 / Turbo I4

The 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe V6 and turbo I4 represents a redesigned premium sports coupe, developed by the South Korea's largest carmaker. Showing a sportier look, it is described as a facelift version of Hyundai's rear-wheel drive sports coupe, which was unveiled to the public in October 2008. This upgraded version offers its enthusiast customers a more powerful and dynamic driving experience. Its sporty front look is enhanced by an eye-catching wide grille, while the voluminous character lines, an LED rear combination lamp, LED positioning lamps and sleeker head lamps, reinforce the high-performance sports image of the car. The sophisticated interior is the result of metal accents and exclusive materials and the driver gets instant feedback for a more dynamic driving experience from the standard multi-gauge located on the center fascia. The new design is also completed by the stronger engine performance and two engines are available, the Theta 2.0 TCI and the Lambda 3.8 GDi. The first one delivers a maximum output and peak torque of 350 PS and 40.8kg.m respectively. The power is transferred to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, which brings smoother shifting. One of the objectives at Hyundai is to sell more than 4,000 units in the Korean market next year.
