Hyundai Coupe TSIII (UK)

Korean carmaker Hyundai developed a new limited edition to join the Coupe range. To be more precise we are talking about the TSIII, a model priced at EUR19.595. The specialists have provided an exclusive styling package and different special color options. To send the power to the road, the engineers have provided 17-inch alloy wheels covered in a special anthracite finish. The model features now quad exhaust pipes at the rear, making it sportier, and a larger boot spoiler with integral brake light for a more purposeful look. For the interior the new Hyundai TSIII features leather sports seats that provide more support and comfort to enhance the driving experience, but also has matching quilted door trims to complete the look. In terms of equipment, the model has air conditioning with climate control, heated front seats and cruise control offered as standard. The list continues with air vents and center console, but also iPod compatible stereo and metal-look finishes on the steering wheel. For improved road holding, the new Hyundai TSIII features Eibach sport springs which offer the coupe a lower and more aggressive look. Under the hood, the car hides a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder 16 valve DOHC petrol engine capable of generating 141 BHP. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in only 9.3 seconds and to reach a top speed of 129 mph. Both the engine and the transmission remain unmodified in the limited edition, providing a combination of affordability and outright performance. To be more precise, the new vehicle will cost only EUR1.575 more in comparison with the model found now on the market. Not just the coupe, but all Hyundai cars come with the well-known Hyundai unlimited mileage, five year warranty package. The new TSIII will be in showrooms for only a short period.
