Order books open for Hyundai Coupe

Hyundai has opened order books for its new Coupe model, which goes on sale on January 1.

The South Korean manufacturer says it has completely redesigned the third version of its Coupe inside and out.

The entry-level model comes with a 103bhp four-cylinder 1.6 litre 16 valve DOHC petrol unit. The mid-range model has a 2.0 litre four-cylinder 16 valve DOHC petrol engine. It develops 141bhp and can crack the 0-60 mph sprint in 9.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 129mph.

The 2.0 litre model is available with a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic transmission.

Topping off the range is the 2.7 litre V6 DOHC 24-valve version, developing 165bhp and capable of a top speed nearing 140 mph. It comes with a six-speed manual transmission. A four-speed automatic transmission is also available.

The new front end features elongated headlights and a new, more aggressive letterbox like grille and new fog lights. New side air vents now incorporate the indicator repeater lights, while the re-shaped rear features a more sculpted look with fully integrated twin tailpipes (2.0 and V6) and restyled rear light clusters.

A range of new colours have also been added to the Coupe line-up. Customers can choose from solid shine red (standard colour) and metallic choices of sky blue, steel grey, continental silver and mica stone black (all £350 optional extra cost).

Leather interior is available as standard on all models. iPod compatibility is also standard across the range.

Standard equipment includes driver, passenger and side airbags, pre-tensioned seatbelts with load limiters, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution, electrically operated door mirrors (heated on 2.0 and V6 models), front fog lamps and two three-point seat belts in the rear.

The Coupe SIII, in common with all Hyundai vehicles, comes with a five year unlimited mileage warranty, six year anti-perforation warranty and three years’ RAC Assistance. Service intervals are every 10,000 miles.
