1 Sep 1999
Hyundai grafted a curious quad-headlight nose and an uncomfortable-looking tail-light treatment to the once harmonious RD Coupe design to create a model of challenging visual integrity.
The top-line SFX model was dropped.
Buyers deserted the model in droves, despite worthwhile improvements to the interior and ride, and equipment level upgrades.
All RD IIs sold here were either MY1999 or MY2000-build cars.
Hyundai replaced the range with the underrated Tiburon range in April ’02.
