For the first time, the Korean coupe was presented in March 1996 at the Geneva Motor Show. In North America and Australia it was called the Tiburon. Two generations of the car were produced, the last one appeared in 2002 and lasted until 2009, giving way to the rear-wheel drive Hyundai Genesis Coupe model. Today, like many other automakers, Hyundai is more focused on the crossover market, but many would certainly be interested in such a niche model as a compact coupe.
Kolesa decided to render some photos of the imagined Korean coupe based on the latest generation Elantra sedan, which premiered in 2020. The coupe received an original front end with a narrow LED dimension extended to its entire width, a similar solution is already used on many of the company’s new products and is likely to be used on the restyled Elantra. The car retained the wheelbase, while the doors became much wider, and the door windows were frameless. One of the distinguishing elements of the original Hyundai Coupe is the characteristic shape of the rear side windows. The rer lights are made in the form of a horizontal strip and intersect in style with the front.
Overall we are a fan of this design and hope Hyundai takes notice. Let us know in the comments what you think, and don’t forget to subscribe for future videos.
