The 2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will be the all-new generation of the famous model. The 2017 will bring numerous changes, each one better than the one before. To start with, the new Genesis Coupe will be larger than its current counterpart. The increase in dimensions is due to the new platform, which will now make this car much more comfortable and cozier. In addition, the new model will suffer severe exterior redesign, coming at the 2017 as a new, powerful and dominant model. The new appearance is still a bit of a mystery, but we know for sure that it will be bold and fascinating. As for the interior, there is not much information about it yet, since the coupe is still in development. This goes for all the rumors we mention now: since the coupe will not be released for quite some time now, information we hold at the moment might be changed by the time the model is released. As for the powertrain, there are numerous speculations about it, but the most probable ones are that the new 2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will have a new V8 unit and that its current engine lineup will be quite improved in order to keep the pace with the competition. All in all, we are looking forward to seeing this model on the roads.
2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Platform & Body
The 2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will have a new platform to support its body. The latter will be borrowed from another Genesis, the Sedan. This fact explains the need for the increase in dimensions. Of course, the platform will be altered so that it can fit the Coupe, making it a tad shorter that the Sedan. However, this will still make the model larger than the current one. Such change will affect the model’s stability and handling, as well as the level of comfort and space it offers inside. As for the exterior, the 2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will have a brand new appearance. The new model will look more aggressive and attractive. Its design will be massively based on the HND-9 Concept. Even though the model is still in development, there is some information about its looks. Its front end will be most drastically changed, holding a new hexagonal radiator grille, menacing new headlights and a restyled bumper. The rear end will follow the similar fashion: its new taillights and rear bumper will be just as fierce and futuristic as the elements in the front. The overall impression of the coupe will make it look very bold and dominant, but also sophisticated at the same time. For now, there are no reports mentioning the interior of the new model.
Speculations About New Engine
The 2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe might get a new engine. It is speculated that the new model will use a 5.0-liter V8 mill also installed in the Genesis Sedan. This unit can produce around 450 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. Another engine solution is the 3.8-liter V6, which is also used for the current model. This unit currently generates 311 horsepower, but it is expected that it will be improved before installing in the 2017 model due to the latter’s growth in dimensions. As for the transmission, the most speculated option is the eight-speed automatic, while the coupe will probably use rear-wheel drive as a standard. The HTRAC all-wheel drive will be offered as an option.
2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Release & Price Estimation
The 2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will probably be released sometime during 2016, or at the beginning of 2017. Since the model is still in development, it is hard to say how the changes will affect its price. However, the new coupe is said not to cost too much above the current price range, which could be one of the sweetest treats about this model. The current model cost from $26,750 up, so we hope that the 2017 Genesis Coupe will not rise this figure too much.
