Hyundai has decided to stop producing of Genesis coupe, said the head of the US division of the brand. The old Hyundai Genesis coupe will be replaced by new, more luxury and modern model, which will be sold under the brand Genesis. The new model is expected to be released until the end of the next year. The new Genesis coupe will get a 3.3-liter bi-turbo V6 engine, which debuted at Genesis G90. The model will have 8-speed automatic gearbox, with an output power of 370 hp.
“For Genesis coupe this year will be the last. We are currently developing a completely new and different luxury coupe. It will also be with rear-wheel drive, but will not be sold under the brand Hyundai, but under the premium brand Genesis”, said head of the US division of Hyundai, Christine Hanley.
The new model will be the third in the brand Genesis. The company already offer luxury sedans G90 and G80. Except the coupe, the brand will also launch at least another two crossovers and one sports car. The future coupe, probably will be called G70 and will compete with the BMW 4-Series. There will also be hot version, which will be a rival to the BMW M4.
