2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe spied!

A Hyundai employee has allegedly leaked photos of the 2012 Genesis Coupe from the factory floor. From the photo, the model adopts a new front fascia which mimics the Veloster, a ventilated hood and restyled headlights. The existing model looks more aggressive in my opinion but look is subjective.

Additionally, the facelifted model is reported to receive new door mirrors, metallic window trim and LED tail lights. From the photo, the revised coupe seemed to get a stripe of LED lights just above the fog light.The interior will get an updated infotainment system and a revised center stack.

Engine options are rumored to include an upgraded 2.0 liter 4 cylinder unit and a revised 3.8-liter V6 with 333 hp and 291 lb-ft of torque. The current 2.0 turbocharged engine shares many components with the Mitsubishi Evo X. Both engines are the result of the Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance, a joint venture among Hyundai, Mitsubishi, and Chrysler. Perhaps, it is timely that the Genesis Coupe gets a new heart in the form of the direct injected, 274 hp, 2.0 turbo power plant from the Hyundai sonata.

The 2012 Genesis Coupe could be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show. There are rumours that right-hand-drive version of the hot hyundai could be available for sale in RHD markets as early as 2012. Keep our fingers crossed.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
