Because of its price, range of engines, and performance, the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe faces off against a variety of competitors.

The front-wheel-drive Scion tC has been redesigned this year, though it still prioritizes looks over performance.

The Honda Accord Coupe is another good-looking front-driver, with sporty handling and good fuel economy, but it's not nearly as sporty as the Genesis Coupe.

The Ford Mustang V-6 and Chevrolet Camaro V-6 give the Genesis Coupe a run for the money in the value category.

Meanwhile, the Infiniti G37 is a long shot; it's admittedly a lot more upscale than the Genesis Coupe, but they're a curious couple to cross-shop—and, showing off Hyundai's strong value factor, a lot closer than you might think.

Quick Specs
For road or track, the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is one of the best performance values on the market.
The 2011 Chevy Camaro is a head-turner with scorching performance, especially in SS form. But the trade-off is a big drop in practicality and comfort.
The 2011 Ford Mustang lives up to all those juvenile, tire-smoking pony-car expectations; at the same time, it’s an unexpectedly capable, sophisticated coupe.
The 2011 Scion tC is not a tremendous value any more, but it finally has some character to call its own.
