Hyundai Press Release

Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2010Hyundai unveiled Genesis Coupe, the new benchmark for attainable 300 horsepower sport coupes, during a press conference at the New York International Auto Show today. The 2010 Genesis Coupe is a purpose built rear-wheel drive sport coupe featuring two performance focused engines – a 212 horsepower (estimated), 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a range topping all-aluminium, 306 horsepower (estimated), DOHC 3.8-litre V6 engine. The Genesis Coupe is scheduled to join the Hyundai lineup in the spring (U.S.) of 2009.

Genesis Coupe highlights
• Hyundai's second rear-wheel drive performance car
• 306 horsepower from enhanced 3.8-litre V6 from Genesis sedan
• Standard 212 horsepower turbocharged, intercooled inline four-cylinder
• Genesis Coupe arrives in the spring (U.S.) of 2009 as a 2010 model

Following the introduction earlier this year of the rear-wheel drive Genesis sport sedan, Genesis Coupe is Hyundai's most dynamic performance car ever and the second consecutive all-new model introduction from Hyundai appealing directly to the car enthusiast. Genesis Coupe uses the same flexible rear-wheel drive architecture originally developed for the Genesis sport sedan.

Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2010"We think our entry level Genesis Coupe 2.0t, with its unique combination of rear-wheel drive and four-cylinder turbo power, offers an intriguing alternative to existing front-wheel drive sport coupes," said John Krafcik, vice president, product development and strategic planning, Hyundai Motor America. "The 3.8-litre version of Genesis Coupe takes driving to an even higher level, rivalling the capability of premium-performance coupes like the Infiniti G37."
