  Hyundai's Rear-drive Sport Coupe Receives More Powerful Powertrain Technologies, More Aggressive Design, Upscale Interior Refinement and Blue Link® Telematics

DETROIT, Jan. 9, 2012– Hyundai Motor America today introduced the significantly redesigned 2013 Genesis Coupe in a North American debut at the Detroit North American International Auto Show.
