Tjin Edition is tuning the Genesis Coupe to over 500 horsepower and painting it lime green for this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas.


Based on a label on a test car, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe appears to be getting a 3.3-liter turbocharged engine, eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive for its next generation.


Hyundai and ARK Performance are teaming up for the SEMA Show once again, and this time the project is a 500-horsepower, wide-body Genesis Coupe.


Hyundai is reportedly mulling adding a luxury crossover to its lineup with a platform sourced from the Genesis. However, the project doesn't have a green light yet because of some concerns of the model's potential for success.


Hyundai helped a young girl send a message to her astronaut father who was orbiting Earth in the International Space Station. The stunt was completed thanks to 11 Genesis sedans driving in formation on a dry lakebed.


Hyundai is developing a twin-turbocharged V6 with around 420 horsepower for the Genesis sedan. The engine is slated to debut in 2017 or 2018, and it signals more downsizing from the Korean brand.


Hyundai has issued a recall of 24,400 units of the 2015 Genesis. In those affected units, water seeping in to the taillights could mess with operation of the automatic transmission.


Second Verse, Better Than The First

The original Hyundai Genesis was a valiant first effort from the Korean automaker. Now back for a second generation, we see how Hyundai worked to improve its efforts at making a well-appointed, good-driving luxury sedan.


Spy shooters catch a Hyundai Genesis Coupe mule testing in Sweden with a modified hood that could hide the 5.0-liter V8 from the Genesis sedan. A longer wheelbase for more passenger room, and Hyundai's HTRAC all-wheel drive are also expected.


2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata, 2016 Nissan Maxima, GMC's Jeep Wrangler Fighter

Episode #416 of the Autoblog Podcast is here, and this week, Dan Roth, Steven Ewing, and Brandon Turkus talk about the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata, seeing the 2016 Nissan Maxima in the company's Super Bowl ad, and GMC's potential plans for a Jeep Wrangler fighter.


Hyundai is the latest automaker to release its Super Bowl ad online ahead of the game. However, many people might miss it because the spot is only playing is Canada during the game. The mix of propulsive music and stylistic shots of the Genesis is one of the more visceral commercials for the event, so far.


As you can imagine, it'd be a bit of a problem if the brake lights on your car didn't work. And that, unfortunately, is precisely the problem that Hyundai has found with some of its higher-end offerings, prompting the Korean automaker to issue a recall. (One of a great many recalls issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration today, as you can no doubt see.)


Hyundai has a thirst for horsepower. How else could we explain the scene you see above, in which there exists a 708-horsepower front-wheel-drive Sonata tuned by Bisimoto (black and white, above left) powered by Hyundai's 2.4-liter Theta II engine? Or the little red number you see hiding in the background, which, at an even 1,000 horsepower, is "the most-powerful 2.0-liter Genesis Coupe ever built," says Hyundai?


Hyundai has yet another high-performance concept for the upcoming 2014 SEMA Show in November to join its 708-horsepower Sonata. For this one, Ark Performance is taking the Genesis Sedan and pumping up the output by supercharging its 5.0-liter V8, along with a mile-long list of other modifications to mix speed with added luxury.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has slapped Hyundai with a $17.35 million fine for delaying a recall on the 2009 to 2012 Hyundai Genesis sedan back in 2013. The recall grew from the original figure of 27,500 units to 43,500 sedans in November of last year, and focused on brake fluid that wouldn't prevent corrosion of the hydraulic control unit.


Hyundai recalled 27,500 of the cars in October 2012 just hours before the government opened an investigation

Hyundai has agreed to pay a $17.35 million fine for delayed reporting of a brake defect affecting Genesis luxury cars, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Thursday.


With the all-new, 2015 Hyundai Genesis Sedan hitting the road, it puts the current Genesis Coupe in a rather weird spot. The sporty model is starting to get a bit long in the tooth, and for 2015, it's dropped its four-cylinder engine in the US. Hyundai isn't letting the car wither on the vine, though. Behind closed doors, the Korean automaker is rumored to be working on a new coupe to transform the vehicle from something of a pony car in the current guise into a luxury grand tourer with avante-g
