Hyundai Genesis Coupe performance figures released

The Genesis Coupe has been launched in South Korea this week, and Hyundai have released performance numbers for the well anticipated RWD coupe, and it also included information for the turbocharged 2.0L base model variant. Hyundai is claiming a sprint to 100kmh takes just 6.3 seconds for the top model V6 Coupe.

In the Korean domestic market, the turbo-charged 2.0L base model will achieve 223 hp and 220 lb-ft with premium fuel, and 210 hp with regular. The turbocharged nature of the 2.0L means peak torque is hit at a low 2,000 RPM. Hyundai claims the base Coupe’s 0-100 time is a rather leisurely 8.3 seconds, but there will be enthusiasts that will make some mods to greatly boost those numbers.

Korean market pricing starts at 23,200,000 Korean won for the base model and 33,920,000 won for the top of the line V6 model. That’s $30,200 and $44,200 NZ dollars, but Hyundai have made no announcement yet on pricing and if the Genesis will be coming to NZ.
