What Do You Expect For The Next Generation Hyundai Genesis Coupe?

by Jul 16, 2014All News, Hyundai8 comments

These days several rumors are apperaing about the next-gen Hyundai Genesis Coupe. V8 engine and more space are the latest informations. Today we want to create this article with the idea of reaching more people and to share his opinion, expectations or dreams.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]Currently, there aren’t any news about the next-gen Genesis Coupe beyond rumors, but Hyundai launched the concept you can see above (HED-9 or also called as Venace), this concept will anticipate the next-gen Genesis Coupe which will debut during 2015. What do you expect for this new Genny? What do you want to see or include, what about engines wise, V6 or V8?, HTRAC or RWD?

This is my personal opinion. About the design, the new Genesis Coupe will be bigger than the current model, Hyundai plans to growth up in the luxury market during the next years and probably we will see a more luxurious, bourgeois, more closer to the Mercedes S-Class and S-Class Coupe.

Not a sporty and fun RWD coupe for young people like the current, (but maybe Hyundai launch a “real” substitute of the current Genesis Coupe, or maybe Kia will be next to make a move, with a production model derived from the GT4 Stinger Concept). I think the plan is for Hyundai to continue moving up, to more older people with more luxury cars, and leave Kia as sporty-young people brand.

But you maybe think of it this way, will a luxury car customer buy a luxurious Hyundai coupe for $50-$60,000? I think that Hyundai is thinking in that, and that’s why they will try one thing before creating a separated luxury brand (more expensive to create a new brand image). With the new generation Genesis models, starting with the Sedan, Hyundai will create a Genesis sub-brand under the mother brand, with the same dealers (special zones and services into). And will be completed with a new Genesis Coupe and probably a Genesis SUV in 2 or 3 years, both more luxurious.

And you, what are your thoughts?  Be free to comment!

    I’d want something in line with M3 esque performance. Now that would be cool, and a favour to the Genesis name. The current coupe, despite being a nice car seems to be merely piggy backing on a name that it really shouldn’t be. If Hyundai decides to push the coupe upmarket and increase prices, it might be a good idea to re-badge it under the Tiburon name and bring make the Genesis coupe something new entirely.

    Con doble embrague, caja robotica, tracción posterior, con eso unido a un diseño deportivo lujoso tipo el Gtr de Nissan, ganarían muchísimo.

    I Expect For The Next Generation Hyundai Genesis Coupe that Hyundai Genesis has more power and good performance and it’s should look more luxurious.

    There is no way the next Hyundai RWD coupe is going to be anywhere near S Class coupe-sized.

    If anything, it will no longer be improperly paired with the much larger Genesis sedan and this time, be paired with Hyundai upcoming RWD compact sports sedan, the RK, and go head to head against the likes of the Lexus RC and the Infiniti Q60.

    Hyundai needs to keep the essence of the design of the Venace – it’s a good bit better than the RC and probably why Infiniti’s former boss delayed the next Q60 for a redesign.

    Needless to say, Hyundai needs to get the driving dynamics/steering feel right and use premium materials for the interior.

    Over the last years Hyundai has been improving their products quality,
    better interior finishes as well as their motors, with more ps and less
    fuel consuption, but if they want be closer to BMW and Mercedes, what
    they really need to do is to work on a car that truly transmits the feeling of driving.

    What the all new coupe needs: V8, power and more power with class leading fuel economy. Smooth powertrain delivery with grunt when needed. AWD option. 10-speed autobox with paddle shifter. Properly sorted suspension. It looks like expertise from Lotus will be needed to accomplish that one. Above average quality interior. Finally, price it $10,000 below the competition. Leave off all Hyundai badging.

    The rear quarter window. I know this is stupid, but I thought this would identify a Genesis Coupe from a crowd of two door cars. Just like the Impala SS in its last two incarnations. Also a lower curb weight, and Lotus tuned suspension like the sedan.
