First look at 2013 Genesis Coupe

Hyundai has posted two shots of what’s to come at the Detroit Auto Show in January.  The 2013 Genesis Coupe will be getting a styling update.  We pulled the two pictures off of the company’s Korean blog (additional photo is below column).  The fog lights look to do a great job integrating a splash of style with LEDs while the tail lamps also got an overhaul.  The 2013 Genesis Coupe is expected to be a mid-cycle refresh so the basic look and powertrains will likely be similar to the current model.
