The Korean-language Hyundai blog has let slip a few more photos of the 2013 Genesis Coupe, giving us an even better idea of what the vehicle will look like once it receives a formal introduction at the Detroit Auto Show in January. From the looks of things, the performance coupe will fall in line with the Hyundai corporate design language, complete with a more complex front fascia that borrows heavily from the Veloster. The vehicle's stylized headlights are a sharp touch, however, and LED fog lights nestled low in the front fascia help give the vehicle a splash of class as well.

Speaking of reworked lighting, the tail lamps have been significantly redesigned, as well. The finished product appears significantly more aggressive than the current model. What other changes can we expect to see? Hyundai hasn't tipped its powertrain hand just yet, but we expect to see the current engine line to carry over, albeit with slight upgrades. There is some word that Hyundai may offer a supercharged version of the 3.8-liter V6, and we fully expect the revised six-cylinder powerplant from the Genesis sedan to be fitted under the coupe's hood. We'll know for sure come January.

      While it's nice that they've refreshed their design. The REAL proof of change is fixing their 6 speed gear box that's been giving everyone problems. I've heard people return 3-4 times for the same issues. Google it up.. you'll want to RUN from the MT.

        Wait, the manual transmission is unreliable, too? I test-drove one of those cars, and came away thinking that it had potential, but the cheap, notchy shifter really downgraded the experience. Shame, because I really want to like the car. And considering the way that Mitsubishi has treated the Eclipse, there's got to be a good market waiting for the Genesis coupe. Just got to fix a few of the details, IMO.

        The MT is awkward to use (VERY heavy throws); I didn't know it had reliability issues as well. Such a shame for a sporty car.

      The details looks good, but the overall appearance doesn't appeal to me..

      Looks like design language is falling in line. Mazda started highly anthropomorphic car faces. Ford and Hyundai followed suit. Now we just need a way to tell them apart.

      i think it looks sharp but hideous at the same time (if that made any sense) .. gotta wait to see it in real life to judge .. cause i find most new hyundais are that way .. hideous in pictures but surprisingly good looking in real life)

      They need to rework the entire clutch and gearbox setup to feel truly inspiring and sporty Too clunky for me.

      I'm one of the few that likes Hyundai's new styling, and I think the Veloster and the new Gen Coupe look great. They are actually the only two currently manufactured cars I would consider buying right now.

      I like these hi-res images and believe both these snips appear to give the car a much more aggressive vibe.

      Better looking than the Mustang and the Camaro. American automakers should stop making ugly looking retro style coupes.
