One can assume, that Hyundai is the company that VW fears the most. Somehow, one gets the impression, that this company simply does not rest on any of its laurels. Now, they have brought out this really successful coupé, and it's not just a makeshift, two-door version of a five-door family model.

One has the feeling, that Hyundai takes the B-section a little more seriously than other manufacturers. This is not surprising, after having already sold a million of them since 2008. Hyundai is gaining, where others are losing. Thereby, the B-section is actually the core of the automobile business, since most of the buyers, e.g., because of the rising insurance premiums, start out here.

Indeed, starting out small doesn't mean that one has to feel inferior. Why should the style of the first car, that is so attractive to young people, take a back seat? And if the success of Hyundai goes on as planned, this trend will also soon be available on the used car market as well, to the delight of the potential buyers and also the sellers.

And, that's not all. Even established car-drivers would not have the feeling, that they've landed in the poorhouse, if they're seen driving one of these cars. For the price of comparatively conventionally styled cars, it is in competition with, e.g., the Mini. All that's missing, is the associated brand-name image. At the moment, the combination of Mini and BMW still appears to be unbeatable.

Unfortunately, the new coupé is only available with the two strongest petrol- and Diesel engines. This of course, increases the price tag, although it costs only € 500 to € 550 more than the five-door. At least they are promising the new 1-liter engines with 74 kW (100 HP) or 88 kW (120 HP). They may then also produce better CO2-values. Still lacking, is a replacement for the outdated automatic transmission. 08/15
