After the 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has leaked several times and it was even caught by some curious cameras not so long ago, the South Korean based automaker is keeping us busy with the model once again by releasing some fresh images on its official website, announcing that the vehicle won’t debut at next week’s Los Angeles Auto Show and North American fans will be able to see it better at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show.
As you can see from the images, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is getting a new front end, with a hexagonal grille and some LED daytime running lights. The facelifted version of the Genesis Coupe is reminding us of its smaller brother, the Hyundai Veloster, from which the South Korean designers seem to have gotten their inspiration into drawing the aggressive design of the coupe.
Sadly we still don’t have any official details about the powerplants, performance figures, fuel consumption, CO2 emissions or standard features, but rumors say that we might find the 3.8 liter direct injection V6 engine under the hood which is developing a total output of 333 horsepower, but a smaller unit like the 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged might also be in the books.
The 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will be officially presented at the next year’s Detroit Motor Show, between January 9 and 22, with a possible arrival into the dealerships later in the same year.
