2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Adopting 3.3T, AWD

23

The next Hyundai Genesis Coupe is adding a new engine to its lineup along with all-wheel drive. 

According to The Korean Car Blog, a test mule was spotted testing wearing a label that read, “3.3T 8AT AWD.” The new engine is a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 that will make somewhere around 480 hp. It will be linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Though the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine was discontinued for the 2015 model year Genesis Coupe, it is expected to return when the new car is revealed. The current naturally aspirated 3.8-liter V6 is also expected to remain on the options list when the new car is revealed.

The new turbo V6 will be offered on the N performance version of the car which will also likely come outfitted with revised suspension and performance enhancing components.

Hyundai recently teased what we can expect from the new Genesis Coupe with the Vision G Coupe Concept, pictured above.

Production on the new engine is slated to begin in 2017.

Kerry says:

Front end great roof line two long disproportionate HND 9 superior design to this making the back look sawed off. Stick with HND-9 this looks awful from the side and I have a 2013 Genesis

I’d take the 5.0 over a 3.3TT. Really not a fan of forced induction engines.

Owner of a 2011 GenCoupe 2.0T. HATE this “new” model. Less sporty looking, gaping front grill, and no Manual Trans? Pass. I was hoping the car would get better, but each new iteration appeals less to me than the First Gen design (regardless of the tech and engine upgrades).

Originally, the GenCoupe beat out the new Camaro when I purchased it (mainly due to how the car drove and felt)… now it looks like things could be going the other direction.
