Hyundai launches special-edition Coupe

Hyundai has launched a limited edition of its Coupe, called the TSIII.

The car has the same 141bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine as the standard car, offering a 0-62mph time of 9.3secs and a top speed of 129mph.

However, sportier springs and lowered suspension are fitted, which Hyundai says help improve the car's handling.

Exterior changes include 17-inch alloy wheels, a special exhaust pipe and a larger rear spoiler with integral brake lights.

In the cabin, the TSIII has heated leather sports seats, chrome styling, air-con and cruise control.

The TSIII costs from 19,595 - the same price as the range-topping 2.7-litre V6 Coupe SIII and 1575 more than the 2.0-litre Coupe SIII.

Buyers willing to haggle are much more likely to get a bigger discount on standard models.
