Modified Genesis coupé marks the second Hyundai concept to be shown at US tech event

Hyundai will showcase a new concept car based on the Genesis coupé at the SEMA show in Las Vegas next month.

As well as the already-revealed Genesis Legato concept - which is powered by a 395bhp 4.0-litre V6 engine - Hyundai has also joined with tuner John Pangilinan to create this new concept.

The concept started out with a 244bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, with Pangilinan using many of the modifications favoured by entry-level tuners to increase performance. That includes adding a new air intake, a performance exhaust, a new turbo downpipe and performance oil to the concept.

New suspension and new 19-inch wheels have also been added, fitted with Toyo performance tyres.

On the outside, wider bodywork marks out the concept - exaggerating the proportions of the standard car. The concept is finished in custom-made blue paintwork, with extra carbonfibre trim and new headlight designs.

Inside, sports seats replace those of the standard Genesis coupé, while the cabin features modifications including an integrated video camera as well as an upgraded stereo.

The car will be on display at the SEMA show, which takes place in Las Vegas next month.

Our Verdict

Hyundai Veloster

The Hyundai Veloster wins on practicality, price and standard kit but lacks the dynamic talent and appeal that a coupé should have.

Oh I wish Hyundai would sell some of their larger vehicles over here. I know their wont be a massive market for them but at least they will bring something different from the Germans.

    Fully-loaded, big-hitting diesel CLS shows the potential perils of ticking too many options boxes on your order form. A good car with a bad suspension combination.
