Hyundai Genesis Coupe Pics Leaked

Distinctive (love the beltline dip), sporty, RWD, and purportedly affordable, what's not to like? Hyundai certainly has made some quantum leaps in quality and all-around appeal in recent years. Good for them.

I'm not finding it exciting, but it's not offensive either. Affordable RWD is certainly a good thing. I'm still trying to figure out the headlights, they look like a bad photoshop in the 1st & last pictures, with the further lamp looking twice as big as the closer one, but I'm assuming these are photographs, and that is just something about the angle of the photo and the lenses. The front gave me a slight G6 vibe at first glance, but it doesn't seem to be a ripoff design.

I agree with 'blu about the dip, it adds a little something unique. This will probably do pretty well for Hyundai, the Tiburon has been an ok seller for them over the years.

This is very close to what a new Firebird should be. I'd like to see this car chopped into a Pontiac.

it's merely ok, but take the badge off it and you have no clue who makes the car.

it tends to look like some of the other coupes (altima, etc.) and look a little dated 90's at the same time.

considering who makes the car, it's an achievement. i guess. it does have a big leg up on honda and toyota in this arena.

I guess it's better than the Solara, G6, Altima, etc, but nowhere near the TT, 328i Coupe, and CLK I thought they were aiming for.

RWD Pontiac Alpha with DI turbo 4, and DI V-6?

Rear looks nice but the front, putting it nicely, looks like a Hyundai. You can see the evolution from the Tiburon on the front which has never been one of my favorite designs.

I thought the current-gen Tiburon looked like a Ferrari compared to the previous car. It still looks pretty good, but this car changes everything, especially the RWD part. Any interior pics yet?

Yup smallchevy, the 260hp 2.0L Ecotec turbo and a sweet 3.6L DI V6 riding in the Alpha platform would make a fantastic, modern Firebird, imo.

Looks worlds better than any previous Hyundai Tiburon. The front end looks too Lexus IS. Beyond that, Hyundai has learned in less than half the time what it took the Japanese to learn about the American car market. This car gives me a neo-Nissan 240SX vibe. I wonder if Nissan will respond with a competing model?

That interior looks great. Ahh... the sweetness of affordable RWD. Love to see that smoke coming off the real, I mean rear tires. :)

Uh... compare what it's projected to cost against those vehicles and see where it fits in, regardless of what they were aiming for. If it's better than the first set, I'd say they've achieved their goal.

I bet if this had a twin port grill on it, many of you would stop complaining. It looks worlds better than the G6 and much less bland. The interior is great for any brand and it looks spectacular in red. If were in the market for a new vehicle, it'd be hard to get anything over this.

It's nice and looks quite good from the rear.I think the interior is a bit reminiscent of the CTS, but still looks good.

The only big drawback, IMO, is the two creases on the side that don't match up.

Alright, I'll say it's got major potential to be a hit. I'm not a fan of the whole nose of the car... looks squished. The grille, well, it's not very aggressive. Not into the dip in the beltline... and the interior, while not bad, is not great in my opinion.

Too bad somebody from Hyundai microwaved and melted it...

Honestly.... except for a little bit of Lexus-generic styling (grille & small details) it's looking like a great product.

Too bad it will be stealing sales away from GM but the silver lining is that this car will EAT Toyota;s & Honda's lunch. :smilewide:

Damn it seems like it......doesn't it.....?

I think the exterior is attractive.....although it's not a "must-have" for me......but I AM attracted to the IDEA of this car, with Mustang GT-like performance, with THIS interior, AND RWD......

(edit: Considering the price and performance....AND RWD....I'd probably take this over an Accord V6 Coupe or an Altima SE V6....!!!)
