At one of Korea’s biggest motorsports competition, the Korea Speed Festival, Hyundai unveiled its new 2013 Genesis Coupe in front of 5,000 driving enthusiasts. This is the first facelift/redesign of the rear-wheel-drive Genesis Coupe since its introduction in October 2008 and it isn’t a bad one at all.
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe gets a new front fascia with a bold grille, redesigned LED headlamps and enhanced cooling performance. The back also receives a nice touch with new LED tail lamps and… well that’s about it.
