I’m sure all of you guys already met the All-New Hyundai Vision G Coupe a large, luxurious and sport concept car that the South Korean carmaker have revealed at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
If you take a look at the latest rumors, Hyundai decided to “kill” the Genesis Coupe as we knew it and create a new large sports coupe with Rear or All-Wheel Drive and using the V8 TAU engine to fight within rivals like the Mercedes S-Class Coupe, BMW 6-Series Coupe, etc… with the purpose to continue growing its brand image perception and expand its sales on a part of the market that never stops growing.
At the same time, if you look at the front, we can see an evolution from the Genesis Sedan front, with a more organic headlights while they keep using the Hyundai’s signature hexagonal grille but, in the back you will see a Equus inspired (if you already seen the latest spy shots from the next-gen Equus) tailights design.
Talking with Hyundai executives, I asked them “The Vision G looks like to be an Equus Coupe not a Genesis Coupe subsequent, Am I wrong?” And the answer was, “I didn’t say you’re wrong.”
So what do you think? Another question that is still without an answer is, what will happen with the current Genesis Coupe? Will Hyundai make again an affordable sports RWD coupe or will Kia fill this segment?
