Spy Shots: Hyundai Genesis Coupe caught in Sweden

Though we've seen spy shots of Hyundai's upcoming rear-wheel-drive Genesis Coupe before and now have the Genesis Coupe Concept as a reference for the upcoming production version, these brand new spy shots taken in Sweden reveal many new details, not the least of which is the car's production interior and back seat. Let's start with the exterior, where we can see the sculpted lines of a lower air intake with some chrome slats for good measure. Both doors are also completely uncovered and offer a peak at the flowing character lines that run the length of the car.

Spy photogs got some great shots of the interior, as well, which reveal the production center console, gauge cluster, and a floor-mounted shifter for an automatic transmission with manual shifting capability. Shift paddles apparently won't be offered, but there are heated seats and these particular chairs are nicely bolstered. The rear seats are strict buckets with their own center console sporting a pair of cup holders and some cubby storage. Rear set leg room looks pretty good from this angle, but headroom at this point is an unknown.

Finally, we've also got shots of the engine bay that show the Genesis Coupe's 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder. Though a V6 will also likely be offered, we're more excited about the four-cylinder for its more tunable nature, lower cost and better weight distribution within the coupe as a whole. Rumors of a V8 being offered are still just that... rumors.
