Hyundai to discontinue the Genesis coupe

After six years on the market and only but a refresh in 2013, it is with no great surprise that Hyundai has finally announced that the Genesis coupe will be dumped from their lineup. The 2016 rear-wheel drive sport coupe will be the model’s last iteration.

Hyundai commented that the plan is to eventually introduce a little something that will best fit the more sophisticated Genesis nameplate. The Genesis coupe was sort of an ‘ugly duckling’ within the Hyundai winged-badge family. At the moment, the newly-launched luxury brand lineup includes the G80 and the G90 flagship. This future model will measure up to the Lexus RC and the Infiniti Q60 in the realm of luxury sport coupes.
