yea, along with the 2dr Genesis
I wouldn't say the GenCoupe. That car is at a different level compared to the CTR and the Focus RS.
If Hyundai make a more powerful Genesis, they should call it the 32X...
On a more serious note, why is the Genesis not available in the UK? I'd take one over an Audi TT or BMW Z4 any day of the week.
Likely it's the cost of re-engineering the car for right hand drive.
Sedan is available, just not the 5.0 V8 big. Nor any form of the coupe. The sedan however is doing really well over there.
Maybe if the Genesis saloon does well in the UK, we'll see Hyundai consider bringing over the coupe in the future. Mind you, aside from RHD, a diesel engine option would seriously help matters. I haven't seen a petrol powered BMW/Audi/Mercedes (outside of the occasional performance model) for a long time. Petrol is of course, crazy expensive here.
Diesel's cheaper than petrol over there?
It is now in many parts of the UK for the first time in about 14 years. Both are still crazy expensive at over £1.10 a litre. Convert that to $/gal if you will.
That's about $6.50 a gallon. Yeesh.
It has been here for a while now too depending on where you live. I think in my area they are the same price at the moment.
Watch out there now
If the production car looks like this
260+hp, twin-clutch gearbox by the sound of the fast shifts, I'm guessing either a heavily modded 1.6T or a 2.0T. This could give the likes of the Megane 275 and Astra VXR a fright.
I'm strangely looking forward to this.
Man I am loving the double clutch sound! I can't wait to see what the Hyundai N Division produces, but I doubt we will see a high performance model of the current i30. The model pictured above is probably a test mule for the next-generation i30.
Turns out that the i30 mule is a race prepped car that'll be doing the N24 whilst likely putting the new N performance parts through endurance testing. A bit like how Lexus ran LFA prototypes in the N24 for a couple of years.
Ooooh that makes sense. I suppose the N24 challenge would be the ultimate stress test on the Nurburgring.
i30 N confirmed for 2017 for the next gen i30.
So in the states would it be referred to as the Elantra GTN?
Assuming they don't list the N spec cars as their Euro counterparts, it will most likely be called something similar to Elantra GTN.
RM16 N Concept
Please Hyundai, stop teasing us with Mid-engined Velosters and make it a reality!
According to hints, the 2017 Accent will be available with the 201 hp turbo engine from the Veloster. Since the Accent is close to 400 lbs lighter than the Veloster, this could be an interesting ride. Many reviews seem to complain of the Veloster's handling and steering, but the Accent seems to be praised. I'm looking forward to test driving both once the 2017 models are available.
If they can make it in the same price range as the Genesis Coupe...
Despite its age, the current Veloster has a whole lot going for it. I like its looks - goblin mouth and baboon ass - but every single road test I've seen says it's a joy-killing sheep in wolf's clothing when it comes to steering and handling.
The next addition to my fleet will be a premium subcompact (urban runabout) under 14'. I'm considering the Accent and Chevrolet Sonic turbo RS as possibles.
So, there's going to be a Genesis version of N, at least from what I understood of the video. So Genesis' version of N, might possibly be more like M and AMG divisions.
Now, I'm curious as to how the Hyundai Genesis Coupe and the Genesis G70(?) N versions will compare. I'm assuming that the difference would be like a M4 compared to a Mustang GT, at least in terms of competitions/benchmarkers.
Either way, I'd be pleasantly surprised to see how the N division turns out.
An even hotter variant of the i30N could go after the Focus RS.
The amount of need is too high.
