Technically, the facelifted Hyundai Genesis Coupe won’t be officially shown for a few months yet, but a cavalcade of new images managed to leak online well ahead of schedule.
This isn’t the first time we’ve had a good look at the mid-cycle refresh for the Genesis Coupe, but it does give us a few new perspectives. As previously shown, the biggest change to the two-door is an all-new front fascia inspired by the company’s new 2012 Veloster hatchback. A large, hexagonal grille dominates the front clip, while new headlamps look longer and flatter than before. There is more surface detailing on the hood stamping, along with a pair of vents (our guess is they’re only for show).
These latest photos suggest there are a few mild revisions in store for the car’s interior. This particular prototype appears to boast a revised gauge cluster and a new center stack design. The latter incorporates three auxiliary gauges, much like the second-generation Tiburon coupe.
Engine configurations may not change much — the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four and 3.8-liter V-6 are expected to carry over — but both may receive direct-fuel injection and a modest power bump for the new model year. Look for the revised Genesis Coupe to make its debut in January at the 2012 Detroit auto show alongside the Veloster Turbo.
