Hyundai has recently announced some changes for the 2012 Genesis model, which will lose an engine but will gain new technology.
According to the South Korean based automaker, the 2013 Hyundai Genesis won’t hit the market as a facelift and this means that the model will keep its styling. The “future” Genesis will be equipped with a Driver Information System, with a 64GB SSD and an eight-inch display, which will become available as an option, featuring voice recognition technology, improved navigation scenes and a more intuitive interface. The model will also get the “hot keys” which will allow the driver to access the primary controls without using the infotainment.
Additional items which will become available on the car will include the Blue Link telematic system, which is similar to the one used by General Motors, the Onstar. The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will drop the 4.6 liter V8 engine, which was developing a total output of 385 horsepower and 324 lb-ft of torque (439 Nm), but it will still be available with the smaller 3.8 liter V6, producing 333 horsepower, along with the larger 5.0 liter V8, generating a total output of 429 horsepower and 376 lb-ft (509 Nm) of torque.
