If it makes everyone feel more comfortable, I will conceed that the Gen Coupe isn't 5.7-60, its more like 5.5-5.8s, while the Camaro is 4.7-5.0s. Is everyone OK with that? Or what if I word it another way ... the Camaro is roughly 0.8s faster to 60 than the genesis coupe is.

How about the 0-100mph stats?

Based on Motortrend testing for both cars.

Camaro SS (0-100mph) - 10.5/11.1 sec
Genesis 3.8 ( 0-100mph) - 14.3/13.7 sec

As the speeds increase, so does the SS's dominance.

How many hundreths is that? Thousandths? ...Can you rephrase it to sound beneficial to the Hyundai?


This thread is beginning to get comical.

I tried, but I can't think of a way to make 8/10ths sound beneficial to Hyundai. Oh, and as for hundredths and thousandths ... that just makes it look worse because its a bigger number (80 hundredths, 800 thou). Wait, I've got it! The Hyundai is only 0.000009259 days behind the Camaro in a race to 60 mph.

Anyway, I'm surprised at the focus on making it clear how dominant the Camaro is in acceleration, compared to the handling qualities of the two cars. If the Hyundai was ever to beat the Camaro in a race, that's how it would have to do it. But then again, racing a circuit is different than running timed laps on the same course. A good handling car that can be finessed will be better suited to timed laps. But on a race course with other cars around you, its harder to get that perfect line.
