Hyundai Motor Group (China) plans to import the latest luxury sedan Genesis and the fifth-generation coupe to the Chinese market next year, state media Nanfang Daily reported yesterday.

Positioned between Hyundai Equus (called Centennial overseas) and Yazun (Azera), the 3.3L-3.8L Genesis will compete with Lexus ES, BMW 5-series and Benz-E series. This model is priced around 400,000 yuan (US$53,200).

In addition, another Hyundai coupe will be imported and go on sale in April next year. This fifth-generation Coupe features more luxurious designing and will be more competitive in terms of price compared with its rivals, like Nissan 350Z and Infiniti G-series.

V6 or V8 engines will be installed on this model and it may also be locally assembled in Beijing Hyundai's second factory.
