In Car Entertainment and Satellite Navigation The Hyundai Coupe SIII is fitted with a Hyundai/VDO branded RDS radio with a single slot CD player, which drove six speakers.
The Hyundai Coupe SIII is fitted with a Hyundai/VDO branded RDS radio with a single slot CD player, which drove six speakers. The system was in keeping with the cost of the car and was not disappointing. An iPod port is standard and is located in the central armrest.
The Coupe SIII does not come with Satellite Navigation but you can add SmartNav for £495 should you wish, but this is only a voice based system. You would probably be best buying an add on Satellite Navigation unit such as TomTom.
How It Looks -
The Hyundai Coupe SIII has been given a completely new front end which features elongated headlights and a more aggressive letterbox grille and fog lights. The new side air vents now incorporate the indicators, while the re-shaped rear features a more sculptured look with fully integrated twin exhaust pipes and restyled rear light clusters.
We think it is a case of you either love or hate the styling and we certainly liked it.
How It Looks - Interior
The interior is more purposeful than elegant, there is a hint of Far East influence rather than Western design and fortunately it lacks the tackiness that we have seen in the past.
At night the instruments and stereo have a blue back light to them and we were not sure if we liked it or not, although it can be dimmed down.
