Today is the day reservations become available for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe in Korea. To celebrate, Hyundai has released a new commercial which you can watch after the break. Those placing orders now should begin taking possession of their new two-door, rear-wheel drive coupe on September 26. Pricing for the new hotness from Hyundai is very reasonable for the Korean market with a base price of 25,360,000 WON (about U.S. $23,000). Stepping up to the "Stylish Pack" (seriously?) nets you 19-inch rims, a limited slip diff and optional Brembo's for 26,920,000 WON (U.S. $24,500). Well worth it in our estimation. A loaded 3.8-liter V6 Genesis Coupe will go for 33,150,000 WON (U.S. $30,100), which buys you over 300-horsepower and a full leather interior.

Hit the jump for a full rundown of pricing and options for the Coupe in Korea. According to our tipster, the Genesis sedan with the 3.8-liter V6 is selling for about $70K in its home market. This being the case, it's pretty hard to draw any conclusions as to what this means for U.S. Genesis Coupe pricing when it goes on sale sometime in 2009. We can hardly wait. Thanks for the tip, Sam!

      I'm genuinely excited about this car, much more so than I ever was about the Camaro revival. I really can't wait to test drive one.

      Prices usually are cheaper in the States. I think this also applies to Japanese cars.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yes, but this isn't a Japanese car...

      These quoted prices are similar to that of the outgoing tuscani in the korean market, so i'd guess this will be priced the same as the tuscani in the us market. whatever that is. fully optioned tuscani went for around 33 million won, and that was the smaller v 6.
      Looks like a good deal.
        • 6 Years Ago
        ??? The outgoing Tuscani was not priced that high! It was priced at around 26mil WON, which is around US$25K. Where did you get your figure of 33mil?

      I've heard they will sell it in Europe for about €40k. Lets do some maths: 2.0 stylish pakage, 24500$, means more or less 17000€. It's hard to believe that a European consumer will pay more than €23k in taxes and import fees for a €17k car. So, I guess, Hyunday has different pricing policies in different areas of the world. As a European consumer, I feel fooled by automakers every time I have to buy a car, because I know that someone with a different citizenship is getting the same car for less than half the price only because he was born in a different place.

      Hyunday, would you please price this car honestly in Europe?? Please....

      it still reminds me of the old Hyundai S'coupe.
        • 6 Years Ago
        You obviously don't know what the S'coupe looks like do you? If you weren't such a Hyundai hater you would not me making obviously stupid and retarded comments like that. Not one person would even come close to agreeing with you. It's either that or you are surfing the web while blind.

        Much like how a Nissan Altima reminds you of the old Nissan Stanza

        "rolls eyes"

      pricing is extremely good for the base, but im not sure how well the v6 will do considering its 30k+, and its a hyundai.

      dont get me wrong though, i have always been a fan of the genesis sedan and coupe. and hyundai's been taking the right road to being an even bigger player in the US automotive market.
      • 6 Years Ago
      You can put all the horsepower you want in one of those, but as far as I'm concerned, it's still a 300 horsepower white good.

      I've seen one of these rolling around in Irvine already. I should try and snap a couple pics. Definitely a looker everytime I've seen it.
      • 6 Years Ago
      obviously the price range for the genesis coupe is hiked up a few grand in korea
      my bet is that the four pot will come around 20k - and the v6 def will not be hitting 30k

      Hyundai is notorious for price gouging at home. At lot of you wonder why Genesis is built like a Lexus, well because it directly competes against similarly priced Lexus GS in its home market. Americans are basically getting a Lexus GS460 competitor for only $38,000 in the US.

      Therefore US$30,100 for a 3.8 Genesis Coupe is actually quite reasonable.

        Korea has different tax rate for different engine sizes.
        Korean tax rate is much higher and the price of the car has tax attached to it.

        The price is higher because the tax is higher.

      why no mention of the targa, convertible or track model? I hope they don't mess up the convertible like Nissan did with the 350z.
