2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Priced for US

Hyundai announced pricing for its latest coupe model at the Chicago Auto Show. Expected to enter showrooms later this month, the Genesis Coupe will wear a price tag of $22,000 for the 2.0l version and $25,000 for the 3.8l engine model.

The first version of the coupe has a turbocharged 2.0l 4 cylinder engine, capable of generating 210 horsepower. Named 2.0T, the car has an average 30 mpg (8l/100 km) highway fuel consumption rate and tops at 137 mph (220km/h).

The engine is controlled through a 6 speed manual transmission or an optional 5 speed automatic. The car runs on 18-inch Euroflange alloy wheels with Bridgestone Potenza RE92A tires (225/45VR18 front, 245/45VR18 rear).

Later in the year, a tuner-focused performance model, R-Spec, will arrive at Hyundai dealerships bulked up with superior Brembo brakes, stiffened suspension, a Torsen limited-slip differential and 19-inch gunmetal alloys shoed summer tires.

The more powerful 3.8l V6 engine has 306 horsepower and propels the car to a top speed of 149 mph (240 km/hour). The stock transmission is a 6 speed manual, but optionally a 6 speed automatic can be fitted onto the car.

This version will also benefit from a factory tuned model, called the 3.8 Track. The V6 model comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, Brembo brakes with 13.4-inch rotors and four-piston brakes, track-tuned suspension and Torsen-type limited-slip differential.

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a rear-wheel drive sports coupe, released on October 13, 2008 for the Korean market. It is Hyundai's first rear-wheel drive coupe and shares its basic platform with the Hyundai Genesis luxury sedan.
