The series III Coupe comes with a choice of three petrol engines, the entry-level model has a 103 bhp, 1.6 litre, 16 valve engine with a 5-speed manual gearbox, next is the mid-range 141 bhp, 2.0 litre, 16 valve engine with 5-speed manual gearbox (our test car).

We are now on the third incarnation of the Hyundai Coupe and in homage Hyundai have decided to call the new coupe the Hyundai Coupe SIII. First introduced in 1996, Hyundai has sold 40,000 coupes in the UK.

The new car has a completely revised exterior and there have been some significant changes on the inside too.

When we last reviewed the Hyundai Coupe II - we chose the 2.7 V6, this time we have opted for the 2.0 litre variant to see how this mid-range model performs in line up.

How It Drove - Performance

The series III Coupe comes with a choice of three petrol engines, the entry-level model has a 103 bhp, 1.6 litre, 16 valve engine with a 5-speed manual gearbox, next is the mid-range 141 bhp, 2.0 litre, 16 valve engine with 5-speed manual gearbox (our test car). And then there is the range topping 2.7 litre, V6 producing 165 bhp with a choice of 6-speed manual or a Porsche designed 4-speed H-Matic automatic gearbox.

The 2.0 litre model we tested is available with either a 5-speed manual or the automatic option. Our car was fitted with the manual gearbox; on paper this propels the car from 0-62mph in 9.3 seconds onto a top speed of 129 mph.
