What do you know, the 2013 Hyundai Genesis has already arrived in the Philippines. Hyundai car fanatics and racing enthusiast will definitely impress on what features and specs of the new Genesis. I just saw the model on a carshow yesterday which was held near at our place here in Manila. All I can say that the car is stuffed with racing features and power on the engine.
2013 Hyundai Genesis: Engine
The said engine is still a V6 Lambda engine, dual-cvvt system. The difference? The new engine equipped with a GDi system; in short, the said engine is a direct inject which will provide better fuel-efficieny which is not availble on the previous Hyundai Genesis.
What I like about the engine of the Hyundai Genesis is that they added more horsepower on it compared to the previous model, the 2013 Hyundai Genesis has a 350 PS compare to the previous Hyundai Genesis of 303 PS. A very fuel-efficient car but still powerful.
2013 Hyundai Genesis: Interior and Transmission
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis now offers a paddle-shift and automatic transmission to the buyers compare to the old Hyundai Genesis which is offered in manual transmission. I think Hyundai is shifting their Genesis from the usual drifting roots to race-tracks.
The interior of the new Hyundai Genesis has this feeling of the old Hyundai Genesis, the difference of the transmission and the paddle-shift.
2013 Hyundai Genesis: Exterior
It is very apparent that the front of the car has a new design even the layout of the headlights and tailights; now they offer it LED as a standard. Hyundai follows the European standards in terms of design like Audi and Mercedes Benz. Efficient yet Powerful.
The authorized Hyundai car dealers doesn't have the actual price of the car, but from other car-dealers, the estimated price of this will range from 1,900,000.00 Philippine peso and the availability estimated also on the 3rd Quarter 2012; other car-dealers already has this unit direct from South Korea.
I'll definitely see this car around Manila roaring the road. Powerful yet Fuel-efficient.
