Hyundai Motor America is upping ante by revealing the R-Spec trim of its brand-new  striking machine, the 2010 Genesis Coupe. The R-Spec Genesis Coupe is a special trimmed-down Genesis Coupe variant, designed to suit those car enthusiasts looking to tune their car to their own specifications.

Under the bonnet of the R-Spec model lies a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine. The 210 horsepower engine is mated to the 6-speed close-ratio manual transmission. Other exclusive enhancements that the R-Spec also gets include Torsen limited slip differential, Brembo brakes, track-tuned suspension lay-out with stiffer springs and dampers along with front and rear sway bars and a strut tower brace.

Making up the R-spec Genesis Coupe tweaks on the outside are the 19-inch light-weight alloy wheels with high-performance Bridgestone Potenza tires (225/40YR19 in front and 245/40YR19 at rear-end) and exclusive R-Spec badging.

To further reduce the cost and weight, Hyundai also eliminated some of the non-essential equipment such as automatic headlights, cruise control, Bluetooth and trip computer.

SsangYong will be showing an almost production-ready example of its new C200 crossover utility car at the Seoul Motor Show in South Korea, opening on April 2. The company says that the C200 unveiled at the show will closely resemble the production C200 scheduled to be launched later this year. SsangYong will also show a new diesel hybrid version of the Kyron. The C200 concept was first unveiled at the Paris show last October and is the first new model in the broadening of the SsangYong range. The C200 is a modern, contemporary urban passenger car with styling by Giugiaro’s ItalDesign in Italy. It is similar in size to a Toyota RAV4, a Honda CRV and a Nissan Qashqai and with a 2,640mm wheelbase, is slightly longer than a VW Tiguan. The C200 differs from current SsangYong models in that it uses monocoque construction to ensure a passenger car look, feel and comfort. The platform is adaptable, and the chassis can be used for front wheel drive and four wheel drive passenger cars.


The all-new Kia Cadenza luxury sporty sedan, will be a 'big step into the future' for Kia when it goes on worldwide sale next year. New Kia Cadenza will make its overseas world premiere at the 2009 Riyadh Motor Show in Saudi Arabia on 12 December, followed immediately by an appearance at the 2009 Dubai Motor Show on 15 December.
