The most obvious changes take place up front where the Genesis Coupe obtains a new nose featuring a larger hexagonal grille split in the middle by a glossy black section. The shape of the grille appears to bear design elements from the recently face-lifted Audi A5. The front also comes with a revised bumper, sleeker lights and a redesigned hood with air vents. At the back, we find brand new tail lamps sitting atop the redesigned bumper and a more concave boot lid. The brake lights now bear resemblance to those found on the Hyundai I45.
The 2013 Genesis Coupe will debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2012 and is expected to keep itís two engine options, although with a significant bump in power. Look for the 2.0T engine to increase from 210 hp to 274 hp, while the 3.8 liter V6 should gain direct injection to offer 333 hp. The bad news is that right-hand-drive production is expected to begin with the next generation Genesis Coupe, not the update shown here.
