Because of its price, range of engines, and performance, the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe faces off against a variety of competitors.
At the low end, shoppers looking at the Scion tC could move up to the fresh shape and rear-wheel-drive performance.
Honda Accord Coupe shoppers could look to the Hyundai for sportier handling and more style, but they'd sacrifice some refinement and their addiction to the Honda name.
More than the Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro V-6 gives the Genesis Coupe a run for the money in the value category, with the least-expensive Chevy starting for about $23,000.
The Genesis looks less macho next to any of the reconstituted nameplates from Detroit, and V-8s still rule when it comes to ultimate performance bragging rights.
There is also the chance that G37 shoppers might consider the Genesis because the two cars are so close in power, but the Infiniti is silkier and more refined.
You get what you pay for, in this case.
