In just a few weeks, we'll be feasting our eyes on the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe under the bright lights of the Detroit Auto Show. And while the endless spy shots and leaked images have done a good job of showing us exactly what the new coupe looks like, this in-person video gives us a glimpse of what the new Hyundai sports cars looks like in the wild – inside and out.

We're slowly warming to the new Veloster-inspired front fascia, and the other visual changes for 2013 have been easier to appreciate. The revised taillamps look nice, and we dig the wheel design of the 3.8 R-Spec model shown in this video. V6-equipped Genesis Coupes will now be good for 345 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, routed to the ground via a six-speed manual or optional eight-speed automatic. Turbocharged four-cylinder models will still produce a more than respectable 271 hp and 275 lb-ft with the same transmission choices.

The videos, available after the jump, give us a glimpse inside the new Genesis Coupe, and though we can't see much more than the gauge cluster and steering wheel, it doesn't appear that too much has changed inside. More interesting is a brief second video clip with a first-person acceleration run, though in truth, it doesn't reveal much more than the engine sound because of the way it's shot.

We'll be sure to give you a closer look when the Hyundai makes its debut in Detroit next month, so stay tuned.

      unfortunately it is way too busy with the series of uncoordinated scoops, louvers and wings. They could have made it sleek and refined...

      Schreyer is the new Bangle, for better or worse. Everyone has to at least acknowledge his design language because it's so distinct, and the $$ results are undeniable. My opinion? I prefer that cars look like mechanical devices and not something captured by a deep-sea camera.

        "I prefer that cars look like mechanical devices and not something captured by a deep-sea camera." Totally agree, well said! Muscular and sharp is good, but all these more "organic" and "fluidic" designs lately really leave me cold. Maybe that's why I'm liking the BRZ slightly more than the FR-S/86, the front is more simple and mechanical compared to Toyota's sculpted creases. The front of this Hyundai though... Overall a pleasant shape, but it's busy busy busy.

      Awesome camera work on the walk around. Let me know when that Cloverfield monster shows up.

      Hyundai is extremely frustrating. IT has taken the direction of over designing every car they have. Look at the grill on the genesis coupe. Way overdone it ends up looking weird. Kia on the other hand is doing things right. Simple and well designed. But they did drop the ball on the current optima interior. 99% of the world loves symmetry and driver oriented dash boards are not symmetrical nor are they sporty at all.

        No way, driver oriented is the way to go. Even BMW is returning to it thankfully.

      I hate it when this happens. The new car has much nicer engines, probably some chassis gains, is a better car overall...but they whack its face black and blue with the ugly stick. The current gen Gen (see what I did there?) looks pretty fantastic, and the front looks sleek like a real sports car. This? I cant look at the front for more than five seconds without either getting a little angry, getting a headache, or both. I cant believe I am saying this, but Hyundai, if you want to know how a car should look like, look no further than your economy class sister Kia. Maybe some sibling rivalry caused all of Hyundai's best designers to go Kia, and all of Kia's worst designers to take their place.

        Completely agreed. I was a big fan of Hyundai's recent design language until they unveiled the Veloster, and then I just found myself trying to hold back the barf while studying the horrendous front fascia. What the hell were they thinking? And then there were glimpses and leaked camo pics of the revised Gen Coupe, with its Veloster-ish front face. I was hoping and praying and hoping some more that they weren't gonna cannibalize the Gen Coupe's clean, subtle lines with another Veloster-inspired mess... Well, not only did they do just that, but they took it even further and made it look even worse than the Veloster's face. I hope it ends here, otherwise their big turnaround in design will have only lasted a short-enough while to get them noticed and some short-lived praise.

      Sure the engine is nicer but man that front end is ugly. They went from sexy to crap pretty quick. Why copy Mitsubishi, the Eclipse is no more in 2013.

      What happened to the styling?!!!!! What's with all the shinny things....BLING?!....It cheapened the look and here I am thinking they're improving he design. What's up with the SONATA HYBRID like snout.....UGLY! Looks like a bloated SONATA HYBRID from the front end. Arrghh....I guess I'll have to check this out in BLACK!

      So this is what happens when designers are told to use cool features but make it look really ugly...
