New Reveal : 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe : R-Spec Model Revealed, Coupe's Pricing Starts from $22,000

Although the new-generation Hyundai Genesis Coupe has been already released in Korea, this is the Genesis Coupe that will be sold in America and the rest of the world. At the 2009 Chicago Auto Show, Hyundai not only announced pricing for its Genesis Coupe, but the Korean automaker also revealed a new trimmed down version of its rear-wheel-drive sportscar called "R-Spec". The Genesis Coupe is aimed to compete against cars like the Ford Mustang, Nissan 370Z, BMW Z4, and Audi TT.
Hyundai revealed the pricing list of each model. The base model "2.0T" has a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder with 210hp. That's actually the same power as a 4.0L V6 Mustang. Comparably, it's 10hp more than the 2.0L turbo Audi TT, and the TT is front-wheel drive and more expensive. On the other hand, the Genesis Coupe starts at $22,000. So this base model appels to enthusiasts who want a low starting price and the ability to tune their car to their own specifications.
The big Korean automaker also released a "R-Spec" package for the base model. With an extra $1,750, the "R-Spec" adds a series of performance orientated goodies such as track-tuned suspension, 19-inch gunmetal-finish alloy wheels with performance summer tires, Brembo braking system, Torsen limited-slip differential, and R-Spec badging.
Moving to the V6 engine Genesis Coupe, the prices for the 3.8L V6 starts at $25,000. And don't worry, the V6 Genesis Coupe delivers a lot of punch, 306hp to be exact. But with goodies added such as Bluetooth, automatic headlights, cruise control, trip computer, chrome interior accents and steering wheel audio controls, the price ups to $31,000. That's still as a base Mustang GT. That's why we expect high sales for the Genesis Coupe when it hits the streets later this month.
