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.
