Genesis Coupe

Hyundai Motor America decided to launch an updated 2016 Genesis Coupe and adds a new 6-inch color center display to the center stack, replacing the former dot-matrix display.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]After the launch of the new luxury Genesis Brand, now we have some questions about what is going to happen to the current Genesis Coupe model. In addition, we have read in AutoNews that the current Genesis Coupe, as a performance-oriented rear-wheel-drive model, will not be carried into the new Genesis subbrand.

So we tried to get some answers and asked some Hyundai executives at different countries, but they denied to talk about, just recommended us to wait a few months for some amazing announcements to come. Since Hyundai hired BMW M’s boss Albert Biermann, looks like the South Korean carmaker is stepping forward into the Sports Cars market, with his new N Performance brand. Is expected that the first model under this program will the the i30 / Elantra GT hatchback.

So, will Hyundai have again an affordable RWD sports coupe after the current generation finishes its production? Or will turn into a luxurious Gran Coupe car under the Genesis Brand, like other premium brands done, like Mercedes S-Coupe or BMW 6-series Coupe? Place your bets.
