2013 Detroit Auto Show Coverage



The big show is finally here, with new vehicles and concepts being revealed.

While Chevrolet will likely put its stamp on the show with the anticipated reveal of the 2014 Corvette, there are still plenty of other great cars to look forward to. Among them are the BMW 4 Series, the 2014 Lexus IS, 2014 Infiniti Q50, Hyundai Genesis Sedan Concept (seen above) and a new Honda Fit-based Crossover. Look for coverage starting January 13th, with more to follow on the first press day, January 14th.

I will be there and will be sure to avoid: Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti and any other boring Asian manufacturer.

Like it or not, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 is exciting & the target vehicle of the 2015 Challenger/Barracuda, Camaro & Mustang.

That car would look so much better if that side window wasn't so goofy looking and more consistent with the window next to it.

That's always been a beef with me too. That sagging, melting look to the rear window has never looked right.

I look forward to seeing what the new 2015 coupe design brings.

Exactly what I thought when I first saw that car a few years ago. I was like why the hell didn't they just make it a straight line?

Sales figures for this Genesis Coupe':

November 2011 - 2,385
November 2012 - 2,702

Challenger is a better seller. Doesn't seem Mfg's should be mimicking that one.

Sales figures aside, look at it. Meh. It's on par with an R/T performance wise, and similar MPG to boot. That 3.8 is damn thirsty.
