Hyundai Coupe

We catch Hyundai's four-door Coupe undergoing handling tests in France

These are the very first shots of a new model from Korea that is to become Hyundai’s answer to the Mercedes CLS and VW Passat CC or Opel Insignia: a four-door coupé-like saloon. We caught it undergoing handling-tests on a lonely test-track in northern France. As it’s going to have similar dimensions, we reckon the new car is going to make use of the chassis and underpinnings of the new Sonata. It’s also very likely, the new four-door coupé will get the Sonata’s choice of engines, namely the 165-hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder and 250-hp 3.3-litre V6 petrol engines plus the 2.0-litre CRDi diesel with 150 hp. We do not expect the car to be available before late in 2009 or even only in 2010.
