Hyundai has announced a series of changes for the 2013 Genesis.

The styling remains the same, but the car can be equipped with an optional Driver Information System that has a 64GB SSD (solid-state drive) and an eight-inch display. It features a more intuitive interface, improved navigation screens and enhanced voice-recognition technology.

The model also benefits from additional "hot keys" that give the driver access to primary controls without having to use the infotainment system.

Additionally, the car has been equipped with the Blue Link telematic system. It's similar to GM's Onstar and allows users to remotely lock/unlock their doors, send text messages and track the vehicle when it's stolen.

Under the hood, the 4.6-liter V8 engine - which developed 385 hp (287 kW / 390 PS) and 324 lb-ft (439 Nm) of torque - has been dropped. However, the model is still available with a 3.8-liter V6 that develops 333 hp (248 kW / 338 PS) and a 5.0-liter V8 with 429 hp (320 kW / 435 PS) and 376 lb-ft (509 Nm) of torque.
