The all-new 2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is said to arrive next year but little is known so far about it. However, a batch of spy shots clicked in South Korea reveal a major detail about the next-gen model.
A test mule of the next-gen 2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe was recently spotted in a parking lot by a team Testdrive reader, bearing a “CK T-car 3.3T (8AT AWD)” sticker on the windshield. This indicates that the all-new Genesis Coupe would have all-wheel drive layout and sport a 3.3-litre turbocharged engine which would be linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Of course, there may be other engine and transmission options, as well as rear-wheel drive layout too.
The spyshots takes us back to the 2015 Chicago Auto Show where the South Korean automaker presented its new Lambda II 3.3-litre Twin-turbo GDi V6 petrol engine. The 3,342 cc twin-turbo engine incorporates Intermediated CVVT (I-CVVT), an iteration of the brand’s Continuously Variable Valve Timing system, and produces 365 hp and 379 lb.-ft. (514 Nm) of torque.
This engine is expected to debut in the 2017 Hyundai Genesis and the test mule in the images is probably powered by the same, as indicated by the sticker on its windshield.
