The first ever photographs of the upcoming face lifted 2012 Hyundai Genesis coupe are out. The car has been spied when the vehicle was undergoing some winter testing in Scandinavia. The photographs indicate that some changes have been incorporated while making the face lifted model.

New indicator lights embedded in the side mirrors as well as a newly designed set of headlights stand out. Going by the pictures, a few minor changes have been brought in to the front and rear bumpers.

The vehicle incorporates the 3.8 liter V6 with 310 PS (228 kW / 306 bhp), something which was earlier seen in other variants. The 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is expected to make its debut sometime later this year.
