Hyundai's Genesis Coupe has been given a makeover for the 2012 model year, and while an unveiling has yet to occur, there's been no shortage of spy photos giving us a good idea of what to expect when the new model eventually appears.

This week a new enthusiast rendering has surfaced that would seem to be remarkably accurate, its lines closely mirroring the spied production car seen in these shots (although Hyundai's US arm declared it a fake this week).

In both the spy photos and this latest 'photochop', the Coupe's new look draws more than a few cues from the smaller Veloster sports hatch, including the updated headlights and front bumper.

At the rear, the taillights remain largely unchanged in their shape, but have gained a new internal design consistent with Hyundai's latest styling direction.

The Korean- and US-market 2012 update is expected to see the Genesis Coupe gain more power, with the output of its 3.8 litre V6 petrol engine growing from 234kW to 248kW.

The four-cylinder turbo's output is also expected to grow, although actual numbers remain unknown. For now, the turbo Coupe offers a reasonable 157kW.

 

Australia

An Australia debut for the Genesis Coupe has so far been stonewalled by the absence of a right-hand-drive version.

Thanks to pressure from the UK market however, Hyundai recently gave the green light to the development of a right-hook version.

It is expected that right-hand-drive production will begin with the next-generation Genesis Coupe - not the update shown here - so a local debut for the rear-driven coupe is sometime off.
