The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Refreshed 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe to get 271hp, 345hp engines

Since Hyundai boss John Krafcik announced that the new Hyundai Veloster would be getting a turbocharged version of their 1.6L 4-cylinder there has been speculation that the upcoming Genesis Coupe would also receive an increase in power but now it is official – as Hyundai has announced some engine specifications for the 2013 Genesis Coupe.

The entry level 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will be powered by the same 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder but thanks to a new larger intercooler, a twin scroll turbocharger and some tuning efforts the horsepower of the base model Gen Coupe jumps from 210 to 271 which the torque output has increased from 223lb-ft to 271lb-ft. This is a substantial increase in both categories and with this boost in power, the 4-cylinder 2013 Genesis Coupe should be a far more popular choice among the tuner crowd.
