The accompanying spy photos of the camouflaged exterior show that the interior isn’t the only part of the car that will be Elantra/Accent/Veloster-fied. The hexagonal grille and intake treatment used by those cars appears to be present on this test mule. The interior and exterior changes will join a new 333-hp direct-injection, 3.8-liter V-6 engine borrowed from the 2012 Genesis sedan and a new automatic transmission—most likely the same eight-speed as is found in the four-door Genesis. The Genesis coupe is currently powered by a 210-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic or an available 306-hp, 3.8-liter V-6 with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
