    Hyundai's 290 HP vs. Chevy's 304 HP for less? I'm sorry but why would anyone drive Korean...

    "Chevy. HA!"

    Well Chevy can sell for less because the tax payer is paying for most of the car anyways. Chevy, Ford, etc are all jokes. They can't even build a car people want, if they did they wouldn't be going belly up and begging for cash.

    "Genesis Coupe is in a class of it's own"

    Chevy had a chance to take the new Camaro to new heights but instead they decided to keep it a standard muscle car.
    The Genesis Coupe is more attractive, handles better, more reliable, will respond to mods better, looks better, better warranty, and with some nice wheels and coilovers, looks like nothing else under $60k.

    You got to be kidding me. I love all your subjective points especially looks like nothing else under $60k....
    The Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track's exterior styling was a hit with most of our staffers — it's clearly inspired by the G37..... It’s basically a copy cat, not original at all and the G37 is under 60k; this Hyundai does not stick out in a crowd....everyone needs to stop drinking the Kool-Aid and get off your import kicks.
    ..and SDH I don’t even know where to start with you but if you actually read the news more often you would find out that Ford has not even excepted cash from the gov’t but guess who did go crying to the Japanese gov’t for cash....Toyota, the company sitting on the most cash reserves out of any auto company on the planet.

    "Good effort, but weight a minute"

    We definitely need more RWD manual trans cars like this hyundai. That said, it's saddled with the interior dimensions of a subcompact, yet because it rides on a full size luxury car mechanical bits, it weighs between 3300 and 3400lbs, even with the 4cyl. This car at 2900lbs would be a game changer at it's price. for it's weight, i wish it had a more useful interior, like a GTI.

    "The last thing we need..."

    ...is more Hyundais. Whoever buys one deserves to lose his/her job. It's good you can take it back though :-)

    "Be fair"

    As for Andrews points, I wonder if he has been in either the Genesis or the Camaro much less driven either one. What makes the Camaro all muscle any more than the Genesis. The base Camaro has a state of art 304 HP direct injected V6 that's an excellent drive train. I have not driven it in the Camaro but have in the CTS. It's smooth as glass and very efficient for the performance offerred. The styling of the Camaro is retro but completely modern and borrows from no other cars on the market. Styling is subjective but those are the facts. The Genesis is a copy-cat design and in my OPINION not anywhere near as well done as the G37. As far as the best looking car under $60K, does this comment mean to neglect the Audi A5, which also bares some theme resemblance I think. Finally, I like the new Hyundai, but again in my opinion it got typical Hyundai over-styling. It has odd character lines on the side that result in a strange rear quater window. Last, but not least, the cheap black plastic front end really cheapens the car. Go see one. But I'm sure most of us would rather just slam GM for its gauge choice in the Camaro.

    "Genesis HP"

    Hyundai's 3.8 produces 306 hp and not 290 hp. Ignorance of the car market inspires comments like 'why would anyone drive a Korean car'. Have you driven a Genesis. You'll understand when you do
    I drive a 4.6 Genesis Sedan, having traded in a Lexus GS 350 and now we are considering a 3.8 Track Coupe. The Genesis sedan is the best sedan I have ever owned. Period.

  • JKD Posted: 3/30/2009 12:28pm PDT


    The only 3.8 you can drive NOW is the one with 290 HP, so no, I haven't driven the coupe with 306 HP and you wouldn't catch me dead driving a Hyundai anyway. Enjoy your Hyundai before you trade it in for some new shiny Chinese car one day.

  • ConceptVBS Posted: 3/31/2009 10:11pm PDT

    "There is only one V6 = 306HP"

    Genesis Sedan = 290HP
    Genesis Coupe = 306HP
