IF Hyundai puts their 1 year take back guarenttee on the new coupe...it'll be the best selling/faster production sell in the history of cars imo. I bet Hyundai won't even make enough for the sell.

Meh, it looks weird and we don't even know how it performs.

Given the lower resale value of the Hyundai, I'd just wait and buy a barely-used one.

I hate to say this but I think this will be to the market what the Civic "WAS" back in the day. I don't care about "B Series" this, "H Series" that, this car is RWD and with so many younger peeps wanting to get into the sport of drifting, this will probably be the car that takes them there, Hyundai or not.

This car company has come a long way (though I will stick with Honda) and has really moved up in JD Power rankings. I already see many of these cars getting totaled by uneducated drivers, thus making insurance premiums for this car quite high.

Honda will be wise to stick with the FWD platform. Seeing the S2K pass along is sad, but a very wise move on Honda's part on a very slow selling car. Maybe the replacement will be RWD but only time will tell.

I highly doubt that.

The thing is, performance is *not* what made Civics big in the tuning scene. USDM civics mostly were underpowered (compared to the competition they still are, lol). It was the modding potential of the Civics, plus their affordability, that made Civics so popular amongst the tuning crowd. Independent double-wishbone suspension, the ease and affordability of B-series swaps, that's what made Civics big to begin with.

Simply being RWD and light didn't make cars explode in the scene. Heck the Corrola/Sprinter Trueno didn't take off until Initial D made it popular. Specs on paper alone will not make the Genesis Coupe the "new" Civic.

Hyundai's first RWD Coupe is gonna be worth it...

that company has come a long azz way...

my parents first car was a Hyundai when they moved to this country, and they were **** back then (1993).

its worth waiting for. Best Warranty, Trade Back Guarantee, but the only question is the dependability of a first gen car like this.... not too many 1st gens made it out nicely....

Gotta admit, it's a sick ass looking hyundai... but the hyundai badge isn't so great. I'd prefer the Si, but since it's turbo.. it's hard to resist.

I doubt it. the 2.0T platform is only 223hp (base hp not whp). It's gonna be like the SC Cobalts basically...

Now the V6, yea, that's gonna be a monster to beat.

Idk what you're talkin about because I know for a fact that FI aftermarket companies are going to produce so much **** for that turbo trim it aint even funny. Like you already saw HKS has and I'll bet cobb will too. Modified mag already has a 2.0T genesis coupe on the cover thats puttin down 400+ to the wheels.

Im also certain the turbo base models will surpass the v6's quite easily with not much work. Majority of people will op for the cheaper turbo model just because well, it has a snail, and having a snail makes that much of a difference.

Yes it does. Not to mention it would handle better than the v6.

the market's gonna be there true.

but when a stock, 2.0T Genesis Coupe pulls up to the line next to me, it still won't stand a chance. Facts are facts. I'm lighter, w/ an additional 50-70whp.

Now, the V6, I'm not so sure. :readtherules:

Either way, the civic si is gonna need a serious bump for the next model...
