The comments on the video are pretty funny.

By the way, did I miss a part of the video where they listed the prices of the cars?

Burnout at the end was the best. If the V6 can do that...

Shame to hear about the interior though. Some have said the plastics, though hard, feel high quality. They say they feel cheap and flimsy. Hard is ok by me, cheap and flimsy is not.

Yeah I saw that yesterday. It's hard to believe the chevy won (barely), seeing that the gencoupe was faster, stopped quicker and had better g numbers. But they did'nt discuss price and I'm sure the track gen is a few grand more than the camaro. As far as the rougher ride and tranny complaints: If I were to get a gencoupe, I would go with the GT version with the auto and that would solve both issues and also bring the price down. In which the huyndai would have surely won the comparo. Not knocking the camaro, they are both good cars and I have'nt decided which one I really want until I drive them both...

I don't think so. But the 3.8 with the trackpack is ~30 000 I think. Was it a 1LT or a 2LT? Either way, its thousands less than the Genesis

There is more than 1 type of plastic that is used.

it was a 2LT because they said it had leather seats.

i think the hyundai they tested was closer to the price of the SS than the price of the 2lt...........even then the Lt was extremely close in time.

are magazines just reusing the times they achieved the first time? if so thats hardly fair

Such determinations are subjective. To some -- ALL plastics are "cheap and flimsy"...Magazine drivers with access to high-end lucury vehicles are no exception....

I for one thought the inside felt robust.

The Grand Touring version wouldn't return as high performance numbers, though...coupled with the LT's smoother, FE2-suspended ride...wouldn't it make the comparison more in the Camaro's favor?

what a burnout for a V6! I really thought at first the interior was supposed to be real good, but it 's sure getting more criticism.

Thanks. I guess I missed that part. And when edmunds does these quick tests, they 'bench race' like we do so they're old numbers, different tracks, different days, different conditions. But it makes quick comparisons easier.

he was reffering to the level of prestige that the hyundia name carries with it.

I'm a bit wary of hyundai, thier cars used to be shit. The only thing worth considering the Genesis coupe for is the 2.0T and the rwd. From what I understand, the block is the only thing that's shared between this motor and the one in the mitsu. The internals are all hyundai. If that's true, bleh! Camaro has far better looks in the exterior department. the interior is what has me the most concerned before I decide if I want one.
V6 to V6 I'd give it to the camaro as far as modifying ability goes, the 3.6 in the chevy has WAY more potential.

Yep, Hyundais were bad 15-20 years ago. Guess what? Chevy's weren't too much better at the time. In fact, its GM's reputation of poor reliability that has turned a lot of buyers away. So we aren't really in much a position to dismiss hyundai because they built poor quality cars when GM's track record is hardly any better.

ohh, okay, i wasnt sure.


so i went a dodge/hyundai dealership saturday...
and their salesmen know nothing, they had like 6 challengers and 4 genesis coupes sitting on the lot...i asked if they had one with a track pack. he promptly said yes, and took me to a white 3.8. he looked into the window, and confirmed it was a track pack after looking for about 20 seconds. i glanced down at the brakes, it had single piston silver brakes.
fail.
