First look at 2013 Genesis Coupe

Hyundai has posted two shots of what’s to come at the Detroit Auto Show in January.  The 2013 Genesis Coupe will be getting a styling update.  We pulled the two pictures off of the company’s Korean blog (additional photo is below column).  The fog lights look to do a great job integrating a splash of style with LEDs while the tail lamps also got an overhaul.  The 2013 Genesis Coupe is expected to be a mid-cycle refresh so the basic look and powertrains will likely be similar to the current model.

Cop cars take to the track

Fuel Price Brief

 

For the first time since August 9, crude oil settled below $80 a barrel as fuel demand lags and economic concerns persist. Oil production in Libya has resumed an output quota of almost 600 million barrels a day. Libyan quotas are expected to reach one million barrels a day in the next six months. All of which drove down oil and gas prices throughout the past month. Crude oil settled Friday at $79.85 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange—$8.11 less than the week prior.
