2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track: Telematics And Infotainment

Other Nice Little Touches

Hyundai revised the 2013 Genesis Coupe front fascia with more aggressive styling that adds LED daytime running lights to Track and Grand Touring trim levels with the 3.8-liter V6. The new look reminds us of an angry catfish, but we do find the styling of the Genesis Coupe attractive overall, featuring clean lines and aggressive looks. All trim levels include upgraded LED tail lights, too. 


Exclusive to Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track trim level are high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights that improve visibility at night. The bright white light they cast is great for illuminating the rural roads. Hyundai employs a self-leveling system to ensure that the lights are always positioned optimally.

The Premium, Grand Touring, and Track trims feature a proximity key with push-button start. With the key in your pocket, locking and unlocking the Genesis is as easy as tapping the button on the door handle. Starting the car is a simple matter of pressing the push-button with a foot on the brake (for safety reasons).

    I thought at first the car in the thumbnail was a Tesla Model S... I mean, it IS essentially a computer (runs Linux on dual Tegra 3s and all).

    Now THAT'S something Tom's should review. :P

    My stereo which is primitive by comparison has a far faster "boot up" time than any of these "infotainment" systems these cars have. It starts when I turn on the car there is mabey a 1sec delay and another 1sec if I decide to put in a cd as it has to start spinning it.

    And if you want the fancy features I still think an AUX connection from the stereo to the phone is the best bet. If its a smartphone you have the internet/mp3/pandora/gps and if you want an OBD2 scanner like Torque in case your car breaks down. And people usually upgrade these things once every few years and there will be no compatability issues using an AUX connection.

    Waiting for an STI version of the Subaru BRX or TRD version of the Scion FR-S. From most reviews I have read the Hyundai handles like a pig on the track and those Brembo brakes have issues after a few laps.

    We're trying to get one in for a week but considering how well they're selling it'll be a while.

    They still have aux inputs. However, I have an article idea that'll appeal to smartphone users such as yourself - just waiting for the Windows Phone 8 launch to commence ;) I'm open to any ideas you want to see covered though.

    No but if you want to port Angry Birds or Duke Nukem 3D to QNX and find a way to get them loaded onto the infotainment system, go for it :p

    You and i both. The Hyundai is a fun daily, but that extra weight doesn't help it around a track.

    348 horsepower and 295 foot-pounds of torque... WTF? I feel like I've been living under a rock. I guess this is what happens when you only buy used cars with cash. Suddenly Hyundias are freaking fast.
