The V6 engine will launch the Genesis Coupe from 0-100km/h in just under six seconds, in keeping with its mission to be the most exciting attainable sports coupe on the road.

Other features of the Genesis Coupe include electronic stability control, traction control system, front, side and side-curtain air bags, active front head restraints, keyless entry, power windows, door locks and mirrors, cruise control and Bluetooth.

The new i30cw (cross wagon) will represent all the features of Hyundai’s award winning i30 hatch but with greater luggage capacity thanks to a slightly longer wheelbase.

The i30cw is 230mm longer and 40mm taller than the hatch, offering the versatility of a hatchback with more room for rear passengers and cargo.

Melbourne International Motor Show runs from 27 February to 9 March at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
