HYUNDAI COUPE 2.0 SE 3dr (Review date: 23rd August '14)
Bought my bright green coupe in 2004 when she was 4 years old and had her for 10 years until I crashed into a bus and wrote her off last week! Thanks to her hard wearing body and sound subframe I am here to write this today. I do not regret for a minute buying my coupe - best car I have ever had. I agree with all the positive comments about looks and storage and upkeep. On a negative note, I agree with comments about the hand break being poor and having to park in gear and problems with the central locking - my doors and windows frequently stuck in later years but not when I crashed and it mattered. I would also say I never found dipped head lights to be bright enough and corrosion had made a good start by year 12, resulting in a little welding at the last two MOT's, probably to be expected. Apart from these few minor details and the breaks being a tad spongy, I would recommend a Hyundai Coupe whole heartedly. If only my insurance would buy me a new one. Never mind, I'm alive.
Exciting cheap sports car
HYUNDAI COUPE 1.6 SE 3dr (Review date: 16th January '12)
I have always wanted to replace my beloved 1.6 Laser Capri from when I was younger, this is better!
Handling is solid and responsive, the engine pulls well for a 1.6, it's pretty good on fuel and is cheap to insure.
I'm impressed with the build quality and interior refinements.
Since my divorce I needed a bit of a lift, here it is !
It's absolutly fantastic!
very good reliable cars

Best Car I've Ever Owned
HYUNDAI COUPE 2.0 16V 3dr Auto (Review date: 10th April '11)
I really think the Hyundai Coupe is one of the most under-rated cars around. It's fantastic to drive, looks superb and is surprisingly spacious inside. I've found mine to be very reliable (it's started first time every day for the last 6 years), it's pretty cheap to service and because I have the pre 2001 model is reasonable to tax. It's only drawback is it does cost a bit more in fuel than the average hatchback and it's not as fast as it looks!
Nice looking sports car but not at sports car price!
HYUNDAI COUPE 1.6i 3dr (Review date: 21st March '11)
I had the Hyundai Coupe 1.6 for 2 years (second hand). It's a very nice car and looks great when its just been cleaned.
I found the car was a little noisy when driving, but that could be down to the 'budget' tyres! The front seats are very comfy and spacious. Plenty of room and lots of little pockets, cup holders etc.
However, the back seats are a little of a squeeze, when ever I had friends in the back seats they found they had to tilt there heads otherwise would be touching the roof, also take care when closing the boot if you have passengers in the back.
I never had any major problems with the car, few problems with the back breaks had to keep replacing the pads and calibers.
Very nice looking sports car but you dont have to pay the price of a sports car! Its ideal for just two people (driver and 1 passenger in the front) Not ideal if you have a family, tight getting in and out of the back. You cant really get out of the back seats in style, avoid this if wearing a dress!
Looking good, running well, happy car.
