Hyundai Genesis Coupe spy-shots show facelift for 2012
Photos are leaking out of Hyundai’s factory in Korea from unknown sources, showing the controversial new front-end of the 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe.
It looks like the updated Coupe will inherit the weird front design from the Veloster hatchback, as well as receive new wheels, new tail-light clusters and a new bonnet with intakes in it.
The engine is expected to be the updated direct-injected 333 hp 3.8-litre V6 hat recently debuted in the 2012 Genesis sedan, although some hope that Hyundai’s new 429 hp 5.0-litre V8 also makes it under the bonnet of the Coupe. The 210 hp 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder should also continue in other markets. However, we expect neither engine to be offered in the UAE, as Hyundai may choose to continue the current 306 hp V6 engine due to fuel concerns in some GCC countries such as Saudi Arabia.
