The current Hyundai Coupe went on sale on the 28th January 2002 - it took 26 months to develop at a cost of 230 million US dollars and is built in Korea at Hyundai’s high-tech Ulsan plant. Hyundai has a long history in the production of coupe vehicles, initially the S-Coupe was sold in the UK and around the world until it was replaced by the Coupe in 1996. Hyundai are the World’s largest ship producer and we would guess from their latest car additions and pioneering five year, unlimited mileage, fully transferable warranty that they would like to be the World’s largest car producer.

Longer and wider than the previous model, the new Coupe is available with a choice of three engines a 1.6, 2.0 and 2.7 V6. A 5-speed manual gearbox is standard on the 1.6 S and 2.0 SE models and a 6-speed manual gearbox is standard on the 2.7 V6 model. The Porsche designed 4-speed H-matic gearbox is optional on the 2.0 SE and 2.7 V6 models and offers the versatility of a 'stepped' manual transmission or a full automatic at the push of a lever.

The Coupe has proved a phenomenal success for Hyundai and this latest model has has won fans worldwide - even outselling the the Fiat Coupe in Italy.

Now it is time for the promised Hyundai Coupe review, the sun is out and all is good in the world, we are looking forward driving the Hyundai Coupe 2.7 V6.
