2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Spy Photos Reveal a Much Larger Car

2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Spy Photos Reveal a Much Larger Car

Sporting some unique bodywork the 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe has been caught undergoing early testing.

The next-generation sports car appears to grow significantly in size with a longer rear section that has been tacked onto this test mule’s rear bumper. It also gives the appearance of a wider overall body.

As a result, we can expect the 2016 Hyundai Genesis coupe to offer additional trunk space while the extra length will also allow a longer roofline possibly giving the rear passengers more space. In that sense, it will be a true Genesis Coupe, moving upscale and offering more of the sedan’s luxury.

The spy photos also suggest that the next-generation Genesis coupe’s wheelbase will remain mostly unchanged, though do look for a Hyundai’s HTAC all-wheel drive system to be available. Also look for the first use of a V8 engine in a Genesis Coupe!

    Yawn. Not interested………

  • bien meself

    Umm that’s retarded. Those are not spy photos whoever decided to post that title. And that is not a significantly larger car. That is the same dam car a 13-14 body with some plastic stuck too it. But yes same car. I highly doubt that the 2016 genesis will look anything like this..

  • Alex

    A V8 in a Genesis Coupe? Yes, please!

  • GCTrack

    Seriously? Besides, next generation GenCoupe won’t be until 2017 model, or so go the rumors.

    No one ever went broke under estimating the intelligence of the average American.

  • Sammy Z

    What a load of crap! Nothing about this is even remotely true.

    Could be a mule using the current gen body, but the question is whether it’s actually a mule with the new underpinnings.

  • Sal S

    These cars are crap. Purchased new 2013 2.0 T manual trans. It had great reviews from all the auto sites and of course it was on Burn Notice. The bull s*** commercial’s on how it was able to be driven. 2 days old the trans breaks, after 3 weeks to get it back. The rear end starts making noise and clunking 2 days later the drive shaft rag joints and diff cover broke Bolt. Luckily it was fixed by dealership. Now it is broke again Hyundai won’t warranty it. I believe it has only 7000 miles. BEWARE OF HYUNDIA

    My Gen Coupe has over 150 track laps and 80 000 kms….not a single problem. Sounds like you tried to do a burnout and put the brakes on a little hard.

  • arvet

    Sounds to me like you just suck at driving. Ive way less milage than Jeff got about 14000 on mine. And when I drive it i drive the crap out of it and for hyundai not to cover it for warranty means you must have done something to break it aside from wear and tear and mechanical failure due to faulty parts.

    Well…at least you didn’t say “Your.”

  • Deverix

    Uh, that’s the current body, people. The word is the coming redesign will be exactly that – a redesign, so this article is flat out B.S. Now, this COULD be the 2016 because a Hyundai guy told me we won’t see the redesign until 2017. We’ll see, but the car in this article is not likely a spy photo of any future G Coupe.

  • There’s a reason why there is an Automatic option. LOL

  • G. Pear

    I have 115,000 miles on my track coupe with zero issues. It’s been the best car I ever purchased.

  • You do realize that auto manufacturers often build a “test Mule” by taking the new car and literally bolting the old sheet metal and plastic in place. This way they can test out the new car without worrying about the new look being leaked too early. Later test mules will have break-up camo on them so it is still difficult to “see” the actual design.
