Hyundai Coupe SIII, so called because it is the third incarnation of the Coupe, has been completely re-designed outside together with significant changes and enhancements inside.
The entirely new front end features elongated headlights and a more aggressive letterbox like grille and new fog lights. New side air vents now incorporate the indicator repeater lights, while the re-shaped rear features a more sculpted look with fully integrated twin tailpipes (2.0 and V6) and restyled rear light clusters.
A range of new colours is designed to show off the Coupe's lines to best effect. Fresh exterior paintwork colours include solid Shine Red (standard colour) and metallic choices of Sky Blue, Steel Grey, Continental Silver and Mica Stone Black (all £350 optional extra cost).
These vibrant new exterior finishes are accompanied by a choice of sumptuous red or black interior trim, with leather a standard feature on all models. Even the entry-level 1.6 litre model comes with half leather trim.
Both the Steel Grey and Stone Black variants come with red interior finish, while all other colours feature black interior trim.
Blue Instrumentation Illumination
New to the Hyundai Coupe SIII is blue instrumentation illumination, first introduced on Hyundai's latest generation and award-winning Santa Fe.
New Centre Console Layout and Look
The centre console layout has been redesigned for a cleaner look and easier usage. It also has a sleeker, sportier look and feel with a new metal-look finish, which has been tied in with metal-look finishes on the steering wheel and air vents helping bring the interior together with added sense of quality.
For music lovers, the new Hyundai Coupe SIII comes with an iPod compatible CD/Radio stereo. The iPod port, found in the centre armrest, is standard on all models in the range.
