The Hyundai Coupe, which is now outselling the Toyota Celica and Audi TT in the UK, is to receive a stylish facelift to keep it ahead of the game.
Having already won over hoards of customers with its blend of sharp styling, superb handling, high equipment levels and amazingly competitive prices, the new look Coupe will hit UK showrooms early in the new year.
The latest improvements were shown for the first time at the Paris Motor Show last week, and received a thumbs-up from the press and customers alike.
The front end has a more aggressive look, with new headlights, grille, and an entirely new front bumper with larger air intake. The side has a slightly altered profile with different intake vents, while the rear light clusters have also been redesigned. New 16 inch and 17 inch alloy wheels complete the picture.
There are also some styling improvements to the interior, including sportier aluminium effect for the air vent surrounds and door handles.
When the facelifted Coupe goes on sale in the new year, prices are expected to be similar to the current model, which starts at £14,495 on-the-road.
The Coupe will continue to be sold in the UK with Hyundai’s industry leading five year unlimited mileage, fully transferable warranty - still unmatched by any other manufacturer.Published 2 October 2004
