Hyundai Genesis Coupe
Concept or production: Production.
What is it: The successor to the Tiburon, based on the new Genesis sedan and driven rather impressively from the rear wheels ...
Highlights: The Korean carmaker's first foray into rear-wheel drive is a convincing one.
Two petrol engines are available (overseas) - a 2.0 litre turbocharged four and an aluminium 3.8 litre V6. The latter claims performance of '0-96 km/h in under six seconds', which to us reads 0-100km/k in six seconds...
Safety and tech highlights include full stability control, six airbags, keyless entry, cruise control and Bluetooth.
Australia-bound: Hyundai claims it is neither built nor converted for RHD countries. So why is it at the show?
Also-shows: The i30cw Wagon variant of the hatch, first seen at Sydney last year, which features a 230 mm longer wheelbase and 40mm more height with a hatchback to boot.
